[MidLifeXis]Ahhh. Blackened chicken with some actual heat to it. :-)
[MidLifeXis](well, comparatively)
[perlific]so is there a trick to messaging the gods for account changes/mods?
[perlific]I've tried sending a message a couple times and each time my messages appear in my deleted folder... nto sure if thats just normal behaviour :)
[MidLifeXis]/msg gods, iirc. Check also the notes on the "forgot my password link" on the login section prior to logging in.
[ambrus]and maybe see also Can I change my username? and Site Rules Governing User Accounts about policy
[MidLifeXis]See also gods
[perlific]thnks MidLifeXis... I haven't tried from the Chatterbox, but used the link in the forgot my password page... not sure if they heard my plea tho :)
[perlific]hmm... being new, I seem to have already broken one of the rules around changing usernames... damn! so perhaps thats why my request is being ignored
[MidLifeXis]not being a god, I couldn't tell.
[perlific]The creat a user page really should have a "is this username already in use" feature
[perlific]okay another silly question... do all /msg's appear in the Chatterbox... so there's no private messaging?
[MidLifeXis]/msg $username $message sends a "private" message. They don't show up in the CB, unless you happen to be looking at the messages block in your own interface.
[MidLifeXis]Others don't see your messages.
[GotToBTru]except maybe the NSA
[MidLifeXis]well, perhaps the gods or the TLAs (CIA, NSA, FBI, ... )
[MidLifeXis]Dang, GTBT beat me to it. :-)
[GotToBTru]i have the Echelon app on my phone
[ambrus]MidLifeXis: does ISP count?
[perlific]Alright thanks! (end of non-per-related questions)
[atcroft]ambrus: Only for SLA response times. (LaaS/MaaS - listening/monitoring as a service?)
[MidLifeXis]True, PM is on http: connections.
[erix]Salary as a Service
[MidLifeXis]Question for all y'all: When writing an app startup script for Unix (be it, init.d, or some other flavor), do you check for and block if the application disks were not mounted properly? Seems to me to be a "not the app's concern" thing.
[MidLifeXis]Especially when the app and os are managed by different groups.
[jellisii2]Depends on the nature of the program.
[MidLifeXis]Non-life-safety, standard, run of the mill, OTS.
[MidLifeXis]non-security, things like web servers, DB servers, etc.
[MidLifeXis]I have pinged the on call pager (or attempted to) if mounts failed, but that was a function of the mount, not the app services.
[MidLifeXis]Am I totally out of my gourd assuming (yeah, I know) that the machine is in a known state by the time the software gets started?
[jellisii2]Yes, youare.
[jellisii2]The software needs to make sure it has a sane environment to work in before it does ANYTHING.
[jellisii2]If it doesn't, it needs to scream to everyone that's involved that there's a problem.
