[04:16:03] <cmn32480> interesting... I have created a bash script that allows me to run exec, no terminal window required
[04:19:27] <crutchy> ooh nice
[04:19:43] <crutchy> does it fork it into the background or summin?
[04:19:52] <cmn32480> i uh... don't know
[04:20:14] <cmn32480> I was thinking simple windows batch file so I don't ahve to navigate to the directory where the irc.php resides
[04:20:22] <cmn32480> but in windows, it woudl run in DOS
[04:20:51] <cmn32480> Linux... I have NFI how it works
[04:21:00] <cmn32480> but the entire script is as follows

[04:38:43] <cmn32480> crutchy - I wasn't kidding when I said i have no clue why it runs as a background process
[04:39:30] <cmn32480> i just killed it and ran it again to amke sure I wasn't losing what little sanity I have
[04:39:32] <crutchy> yah me neither. that's a weird one. can you kill it if it stops responding in irc?
[04:39:38] <crutchy> oh
[04:39:42] <cmn32480> killall
[04:39:46] <cmn32480> killall php
[04:39:52] <crutchy> ah 'course
[04:40:27] <cmn32480> unless you ahve a better idea (i'm hoping you might)
[04:40:42] <cmn32480> <---- NOOB
[04:41:01] * cmn32480 knows just enough to get himself in trouble
[04:42:16] <cmn32480> I'll ask in #soylent... maybe they have a clue
[04:43:18] <crutchy> i used to use screen
[04:43:31] <crutchy> on a box i sshed into
[04:43:55] <crutchy> you using windows or linux? sorry i think its the heat

[04:44:24] <cmn32480> jesus
[04:44:28] <cmn32480> you melt yet?
[04:44:38] <crutchy> i prolly would if i went outside :(
[04:45:06] <cmn32480> my laptop is Windows
[04:45:15] <cmn32480> the box I'm running exec on is Ubuntu
[04:45:27] <crutchy> maybe use screen on your ubuntu box
[04:45:36] <crutchy> ssh into it from windows using git-bash
[04:45:49] <cmn32480> SSH ->VNC
[04:45:59] <crutchy> oh or vnc :p
[04:46:29] <cmn32480> it works adn has easy compatibility w/ Windows
[04:46:56] <crutchy> gitbash is handy if you wanna access headless boxen
[04:47:24] <cmn32480> gitbash is a? terminal emulator?
[04:47:29] <cmn32480> kinda like putty?
[04:47:50] <crutchy> sorta. it runs in what looks like a normal windows terminal, but it has linux goodness
[04:48:00] <cmn32480> hmmm
[04:48:03] <cmn32480> have to look inot it
[04:48:17] <crutchy> by default it just operates on your local pc
[04:48:22] <crutchy> but it has ssh built in
[04:48:32] <crutchy> and git ofc :)
[04:48:43] <cmn32480> i figured that part!
[04:49:10] <cmn32480> the big issue that I have is transfer of files through VNC doens't exist
[04:49:41] <crutchy> https://git-for-windows.github.io
[04:49:46] <NetCraft> ^ 03Git for Windows
[04:49:49] <crutchy> oh
[04:49:51] <cmn32480> i have it installed
[04:50:11] <cmn32480> at least not the version of VNC that I am using
[04:50:17] <cmn32480> so again, another thing to look into
[04:50:20] <crutchy> hmm. maybe set up a samba share?
[04:50:33] <cmn32480> I was thinking that too
[04:50:50] <cmn32480> atm, I have it going through one of the NAS boxen at the office
[04:51:14] <crutchy> hmm. i never configured samba with security before. only on my home lan
[04:51:18] <cmn32480> being the head sysadmin puts me in an RHIP
[04:51:30] <crutchy> ~define rhip
[04:51:31] <exec> rhip: unable to find definition
[04:51:44] <cmn32480> Rank Hath It's Privilege
[04:51:48] <crutchy> lol
[04:51:52] <crutchy> :)
[04:52:17] <cmn32480> RHIP and HNIC kinda go together
[04:52:25] <cmn32480> HNIC - Head Nerd In Charge
[04:52:43] <crutchy> lol
[04:53:20] <cmn32480> alright
[04:53:27] <cmn32480> enough learnin' for one day
[04:53:32] <cmn32480> it's almost midnight
[04:53:35] <cmn32480> Exec is stable
[04:53:42] <cmn32480> and I'm tired
[04:53:53] <cmn32480> thanks for everythgin crutchy.
[04:54:02] <cmn32480> you have been a great help in my edumacation
[04:54:40] <crutchy> g'night mate. glad to help where i can. sorry to cause grief with it
[04:54:49] <cmn32480> no grief
[04:54:59] <cmn32480> confusion due to my lack of skills, definetly
[04:55:20] <crutchy> i kinda just change things holus bolus
[04:55:22] <cmn32480> but it is all for a good cause, and it is making me think in ways that I don't ahve to think very often
[04:55:44] <crutchy> my commit messages prolly don't help much either :/
[04:55:51] <cmn32480> I'm perfectly happy to keep a stable version running, and when you change stuff adn get stable again, upgrade
[04:56:09] <cmn32480> eh... no biggie. the compare in Git is pretty good
[04:56:24] <crutchy> oh cool yeah. if i change the bot i'll make a little comment at the top with config changes
[04:56:43] <crutchy> otherwise changes to scripts shouldn't bust the bot any
[04:56:54] <cmn32480> that'd be swell, but if not, we do liek we did today.
[04:57:37] <cmn32480> it's all in fun.
[04:58:20] <cmn32480> I'll catch you tomorrow. I'm off to bed
[04:58:23] <cmn32480> night crutchy
