[3:43] <piofcube> anyone know of a good vsftpd virtual user manager?
[3:49] * ReggieUK (ReggieUK@5ac9ad31.bb.sky.com) Quit ()
[4:08] <ShiftPlusOne> not trying to be too much of a smartarse, but vim
[4:11] <piofcube> LOL
[4:12] <ShiftPlusOne> doesn't look complicated at all http://linuxforfun.net/2008/04/05/vsftpd-virtual-users/
[4:14] <piofcube> yeah I was hoping to use something that doesn't require having passwords stored in plain text before generating the pam file
[4:16] <piofcube> I need an upload only service which does not allow users to view uploaded files and not allow downloading
[4:18] <ShiftPlusOne> why not plain ol' php?
[4:19] <piofcube> Yeah... I guess I will have to and tie it into mysql for authentication
[4:19] <ShiftPlusOne> easy
[4:19] * UnderSampled|tab (~UnderSamp@cpe-174-097-224-028.nc.res.rr.com) Quit (Quit: Leaving.)
[4:20] <piofcube> True enough
[4:20] <ShiftPlusOne> don't forget mysql_real_escape_string
[4:21] <ShiftPlusOne> and salt your passwords well >=/
[4:21] <piofcube> good point
[4:22] <ShiftPlusOne> it's incredibly easy to get access to a poorly protected system, so if you're serious about it, make sure you use a proper hardened and secured distro
[4:23] <ShiftPlusOne> which is a pita to administrate
[4:25] <piofcube> got to these days... far too many bots out there... I know, I get all my denyhosts reports and others
[4:25] <ShiftPlusOne> not just bots, but greyhat hackers as well
[4:26] <piofcube> yep
[4:27] * RITRedbeard (~RITReadbe@c-68-37-165-37.hsd1.nj.comcast.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[4:27] <ShiftPlusOne> after browsing a hacking forum for a while I realised just how easy it is to break into a typical linux box... kinda scary from an administrator's perspective.
[4:27] <piofcube> another reason to have only the services you need on a server... less potential entry points
[4:30] <ShiftPlusOne> One of the forums I was moderating was breached because one of the admins was on another forum and that forum was hacked, so the guy cracked the password hash. He then uploaded a theme and since SMF takes php themes, he added a shell to it which gave him full access to the server.... and that just sucked. Anyway, I'll shut up.
[4:32] <ShiftPlusOne> btw, do you intend to have a request section? Often it's hard to find exactly what you're looking for and at the same time designers may be lacking ideas... so a request section would be handy.
[4:33] <piofcube> Yep indeed
[4:34] <piofcube> There's still far too many people who think MD5 is secure... not funny now-a-days :S
[4:35] <ShiftPlusOne> yeah

[6:46] <RITRedbeard> I'm doing well.
[6:47] <UnderSampled> RITRedbeard: :)
[6:47] <RITRedbeard> Cleaning for the holidays...
[6:47] <RITRedbeard> Although the only kink in my day was OSX.
[6:48] <UnderSampled> are you cleaning ALL THE THINGS?
[6:48] <RITRedbeard> I'm a little familiar with it... don't know root or superuser password, so I do what they tell ya to do (put in install CD, change password util)
[6:48] <RITRedbeard> And then it doesn't work, go back to change passwords again... err, no accounts?
[6:48] <RITRedbeard> ALL THE THINGS

[14:10] * ReggieUK (ReggieUK@5ac9ad31.bb.sky.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[14:20] <chris_99> i'm guessing you guys may have ready seen this http://www.thesinglestep.org/thoughts/rspi/
[14:21] <IT_Sean> I haven't
[14:22] <IT_Sean> I strongly suspect that the person that wrote that article is, in fact, a complete and total wankerclamp
[14:23] <chris_99> lol
[14:23] <chris_99> yeah i'm not saying i agree with him
[14:24] <chris_99> i suspect the first 10,000 will go really quick though
[14:25] <IT_Sean> this 'tea' is really foul. ...so why do o keep drinking it?
[14:25] <chris_99> any tea is better than no tea ;)
[14:25] <IT_Sean> You apparently haven't sampled the tea-like-fluid that my office stocks.
[14:26] <chris_99> haha
[14:26] <Shift_> what the hell does "cannot change nick while banned on channel" mean? (I am not banned on any channel)
[14:26] <IT_Sean> clearly, you are.
[14:26] <Shift_> nope
[14:27] <Shift_> it says it's ##OpenGL .... not banned there at all
[14:27] * Shift_ is now known as ShiftPlusOne
[14:27] <IT_Sean> odd
[14:28] * datagutt (~datagutt@unaffiliated/datagutt) has joined #raspberrypi
[14:28] <ShiftPlusOne> had to leave the channel first for some reason
[14:29] <Dagger3> mm, it's not moderated or +r or anything either
[14:30] <ShiftPlusOne> I had to leave ##c++ as well
[14:30] <ShiftPlusOne> ah well
[14:37] <Dagger3> I think that guy's argument is mostly sound. if the RPi is popular enough that they can't scale production high enough, then the only two choices are to bump the price or to be out of stock all the time
[14:38] <ShiftPlusOne> they have broadcomm connections and experience behind them though... they should have no trouble with large demand
[14:39] <ShiftPlusOne> now then... time to argue with people on youtube.
[14:40] <chris_99> isn't the PCB public too
[14:40] <chris_99> so someone else could make it
[14:40] <chris_99> if they wanted
[14:40] <ShiftPlusOne> pcb without schematics isn't very good
[14:40] <Dagger3> they're not using broadcom for production or fulfillment though, so I'm not sure how useful they would be
[14:40] <ShiftPlusOne> at the very least you'll need the gerber files
[14:41] <chris_99> ah, are they not out?
[14:41] <ShiftPlusOne> Dagger3, aren't they? the prototypes have broadcom stamped all over them.
[14:41] <ShiftPlusOne> chris_99, not yet at least, AFAIK.
[14:41] <chris_99> aha
[14:44] <Dagger3> PCB production is being done by these guys, apparently: http://www.norcott.co.uk (i.e. in the UK)
[14:44] * _spt_ (~postmaste@unaffiliated/-spt-/x-5624824) has joined #raspberrypi
[14:44] <ShiftPlusOne> would companies like broadcom have their own fab house or would they get it done in China?
[14:44] <_spt_> afternoon folks,
[14:44] <chris_99> good to here we're still making something here Dagger3 ;)
[14:44] <Dagger3> Wikpedia says "Broadcom Corporation is a fabless semiconductor company"... so I guess "China"
[14:47] <chris_99> i'm confused, what's the broadcom chip?
[14:47] <chris_99> isn't that the ARM processor
[14:47] <ShiftPlusOne> not the arm processor itself
[14:47] <ShiftPlusOne> but the gpu+arm combo
[14:48] <chris_99> ah gotcha
[14:48] <ShiftPlusOne> (correct me if I am wrong)
[14:48] <chris_99> http://www.broadcom.com/products/BCM2835
[14:48] <chris_99> yeah its the gpu by the looks of it
[14:48] <chris_99> with the arm processor

[14:50] * benlyn (~benlyn@c11CC47C1.dhcp.bluecom.no) has joined #raspberrypi
[14:52] <chris_99> i presume they will release the PCB files at some point
[14:56] <ahven> I remember them saying that
[14:59] <ShiftPlusOne> so do I, but they hand may be tied... too early to tell
[15:00] <ShiftPlusOne> and again, PCB files are uesless without schematics in a readable format like geda's or at least eagle's... and I am sure they would use something like Altium Designer instead.
[15:01] <ShiftPlusOne> which isn't a problem, but it certainly doesn't make it open hardware if you have to pay silly amounts of money for the software.
[15:01] <chris_99> i wouldnt' have thought it would be too difficult to reverse the schematic
[15:02] <chris_99> from the pcb
[15:02] <chris_99> just a bit time consuming
[15:02] <ShiftPlusOne> when you say pcb, are you talking about the actual gerber and design files?
[15:02] <chris_99> yeah
[15:03] <ShiftPlusOne> yeah, it would be very time consuming. I am not sure if Altium can work backwards from a PCB, I haven't used it in a while. But if you're just doing it by hand... good luck.
[15:04] <chris_99> i was thinking by hand actually heh
[15:05] <chris_99> but i guess they'd probably release the schematic too
[15:05] <chris_99> no reason not too imo if they're gonna release the other stuff
[15:06] <ShiftPlusOne> the schematic drawing normally have different pina rrangments, so you'll have to find the datasheet for each component and carefully make sure each trace is at the right pin. That's also annoying 'cause the orientation can make it a bit confusing.
[15:07] <ShiftPlusOne> Any biology people here? Do 'pentapepdies' do anything for the skin? If so, is there enough in Olay creams to actually do anything?
[15:09] <ShiftPlusOne> "The ASA also said the majority of test subjects in the published paper reported no effect and the assessing dermatologist in the unpublished paper similarly reported no effect." alrighty then, nvrm.
[15:10] <chris_99> maybe it works via the placebo effect ;)
[15:10] <chris_99> and the more money you spend the better it works
[15:11] <ShiftPlusOne> yeah, there's a video where some marketing guy talks about a strategy where they managed to sell a cream they used to sell for $3 for $50
[15:11] <chris_99> haha
[15:11] <ShiftPlusOne> and that started a but of a debate... right now it's mostly about whether or not there's anything wrong with that.
[15:13] <ShiftPlusOne> they claim that the intangiable benefits are worth it for their 'mental healthbeing' and that insecurity exists whether or not people profit from it... so they are doing Good?.
[15:15] <ShiftPlusOne> oh and "that's how capitalism works" and our countries rely on capitalism
[15:26] <ahven> well, IMHO they had nothing to lose from releasing the schematics/gerber - can you get such a deal from Broadcom for those GPU's?
[15:27] <ahven> and if you do, you will probably want to earn some profit, which in RasPi case is already the lowest price
[15:28] <ShiftPlusOne> what does brodcom have to do with the schematics?
[15:28] <Dagger3> they keep stating that they'd love to have cheaper clones available... but it remains to be seen if they'll actually follow through with that or not
[15:28] <ShiftPlusOne> the pinout is normally publically available information
[15:29] <Dagger3> broadcom sell the chips the schematics are designed for

[15:29] <PiBot> IT_Sean| Well hello Sean. How are you today?
[15:29] <Dagger3> and their normal minimum buy limits are on the order of millions
[15:29] <ShiftPlusOne> what? the schematics are designed around the chip, not the other way around.
[15:30] <ShiftPlusOne> Oh... I read that out of context I think.
[15:30] <ShiftPlusOne> or i hope
[15:31] <Dagger3> my point was that you can't just replace the chip with another one, and the only seller of the BCM2835 is Broadcom
[15:31] <ShiftPlusOne> yup
[15:32] <ShiftPlusOne> My mind was elsewhere when I read the whole thing.

[15:33] <ahven> the previous big (non-profit?) educational development project was OLPC, and BBC Micro before that?
[15:34] <ahven> or are there more?
[15:34] <ahven> OLPC is still alive and kicking, somewhat
[15:34] <ahven> atleast new hardware is being designed and built

[16:26] <ShiftPlusOne> ctyler, he's meant to be.
[16:27] <ShiftPlusOne> Thorn_, lol, hymns are actually a strange aspect of Buddhism. Buddha said rituals are counter-productive... so it's really strange that chanting is so common in Buddhism.
[16:28] <Thorn_> hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm hmmmmmmmm

[17:40] <Skummel> pfft, would have been worse if it crashed into us, it's big enough to do alot of damage if I remember correct.
[17:41] <ShiftPlusOne> there's still like half a percent chance
[17:41] <IT_Sean> well, i hope it doesn't hit us, then.

[21:10] <chris_99> whats out of band mean in this respect
[21:10] <IT_Sean> we make gear that lets you get into your network equipment even if the IP network goes down.
[21:10] <IT_Sean> so, you can reboot / reconfigure a network switch, router, firewall, etc... even if you have no IP connectivty to the site.
[21:11] <IT_Sean> So you don't have to send a tech on site.
