#qi-hardware IRC log for Thursday, 2013-05-16

wpwrakhmm, a bit bulky. be that man is still a hero :)11:51
wpwraks/be /but / # just started to have my morning caffeine11:59
wpwrakoh, and qi-bot is back. nice :)11:59
DocScrutinizer05and qi-bot confuses me ever more12:52
wpwrakDocScrutinizer05: so it helps you to maintain a state of stasis ?12:54
DocScrutinizer05well, I'm wondering about my state12:54
DocScrutinizer05probably I have to invent a new word for it12:54
DocScrutinizer05let's hope Harald manages to keep my mail account alive12:56
DocScrutinizer05maintaining such an infra is an incredible PITA, you'd never believe that until you did it yourself12:59
DocScrutinizer05and finding a few sysops (and service maintainers) that actually understand the requirements in doing such maintenance (like e.g. not everybody gets root access on everything, to mess with stuff as they like) is even more of a PITA13:01
DocScrutinizer05easily accounts for a full time job13:02
wpwrakdunno. my mail setup runs fine without much maintenance. sendmail on the server, some ancient script that makes a backup copy, some pop demon, don't even remember which, and fetchmail/procmail on the client13:04
DocScrutinizer05sure, mail is our least problem (let's see if that changes 30s after I hit enter on this line - the usual way such statements end)13:07
DocScrutinizer05maybe except for the aliases file that has about 200 aliases for frmblpfrmpft@maemo.org that point to some weird and probably stale mail addr13:09
