#qi-hardware IRC log for Monday, 2014-12-01

kyakpretty quiet in here lately.. i guess when it's summer in southern hemishpere, it also counts :)04:54
wpwrakyeah, that, and i'm quite busy on neo900 at the moment. i work in bursts. a while on neo900, then a while on anelok, and there's still a bit of neo900 burst to do05:08
kyakoh nice, what do you do for neo900?05:15
wpwrakoh, the usual: make block diagrams http://neo900.org/stuff/block-diagrams/05:33
wpwrakhunt for components, nettle joerg, help scribbling whitepapers http://neo900.org/stuff/papers/ir.pdf05:34
wpwrakmake scans http://neo900.org/stuff/werner/scans/05:35
kyakah, i see05:36
kyaki follow the rss feed for neo900, but i think the author is not displayed when you post there05:36
kyaki though those block diagrams were made by joerg05:36
wpwrak(rss) dunno what goes there. too many channels ;-) i mainly use IRC and the mailing list. unfortunately, the latter is internal only, so that's not very visible ...05:38
qi-bot[commit] Werner Almesberger: bin/hi8: highlight 8-bit chars; -g for "grep" mode: show only lines with 8-bit (master) http://qi-hw.com/p/wernermisc/dd9001806:16
dos1FYI: recordings and slides from OHSW talks are available at http://ohsw.org/17:55
eintopfcool :-)18:01
larscand I missed it, again :/18:29
DocScrutinizer05whitequark: whitelogger netsplit21:39
DocScrutinizer05split: leguin(v6)21:39
whitequarkDocScrutinizer05: what should I do21:39
DocScrutinizer05or ignore ;-)21:40
whitequarkthe restart takes like three minutes already21:40
whitequarkdue to freenode's silly message rate restriction, 1 per 0.8s21:40
DocScrutinizer05hmm, yeah, 21:40
DocScrutinizer05infobot takes ~5 minutes for logging in to all 120 channels21:41
DocScrutinizer05and it does so via 3 concurrent accounts/personalities21:41
whitequarkDocScrutinizer05: http://irclog.whitequark.org/neo900/2014-12-01#1417469725-1417469935;21:43
whitequarkI'm not sure how is that possible O_o21:44
DocScrutinizer05the miracles of freenode21:44
DocScrutinizer05seems it wasn't lequin that got split, but whatever server gone down on ping response times21:48
DocScrutinizer05whitequark: how's whitelogger relogin doing?21:49
whitequarkalready there21:49
whitequarkit relogined to legui21:49
DocScrutinizer05cool shit21:49
whitequarkmeh I'll just wait until netsplit resolves. I loathe freenode's rotation21:50
whitequarkmainly because of broken IPv6 somewhere in central usa21:50
DocScrutinizer05c<ycle usually cycles through the list of servers in local config. Thus when you only got chat-freenode.net (or whatsthename) then odds are you again get first prio URL redirect21:50
whitequarkI thought you meant like "power cycle"21:51
DocScrutinizer05freenode's "goi-IP" aka load balancing is crap21:51
DocScrutinizer05seems clients are supposed to pick a random URL out of a list of CNAMEs with identical prio (if there's any prio for CNAME at all). However usually clients take first entry21:53
whitequarkno, the DNS server is supposed to randomize the list21:53
whitequarkat least that's what google and co do, I believe21:53
DocScrutinizer05oops not CNAMEs but alternative A and AAA21:54
DocScrutinizer05anyway any DNS caching will spil such randomization for good, and I'm not even sure DNS servers actually do that21:55
DocScrutinizer05host -a chat.freenode.net21:55
whitequarkwell, if you make them do that, they do :p21:55
whitequarkcaching is an issue though. you could set TTL to 021:55
DocScrutinizer05indeed the result of above query is randomized21:56
whitequarkactually, dig chat.freenode.net shows that order is randomized21:56
whitequarkin fact it rotates by exactly 1 on my machine, which has its own caching nameserver21:56
whitequarkand it just jumps around randomly when I query
whitequarkso seems like caching nameservers support this explicitly21:57
DocScrutinizer05so your relogin suffered pretty bad luck when picking leguin again ;-)21:57
DocScrutinizer05btw the AAAA are _not_ randomized here21:58
whitequarkyeah, that's probably the issue21:58
whitequarkmy server connects via ipv621:58
whitequarkyep, whitelogger back22:07
