So back when I was working for MySQL AB as support manager for MaxDB, I created an IRC bot to help manage the #maxdb channel on Freenode. We didn’t get a lot of traffic, and Daniel De Graaf mentioned that he could use a bot to help manage some iptables factoids over on #netfilter. So I had her join. He taught her all sorts of interesting things. She stored these factoids in a MySQL database. I have just migrated from MySQL to MariaDB which I compiled from source. Here are the packages:
cjac@mariadb:~$ mysql -u root -p Enter password: Welcome to the MariaDB monitor. Commands end with ; or \g. Your MariaDB connection id is 5322 Server version: 5.5.32-MariaDB-1-log (Debian) Copyright (c) 2000, 2013, Oracle, Monty Program Ab and others. Type 'help;' or '\h' for help. Type '\c' to clear the current input statement. MariaDB [(none)]> use maxine; Reading table information for completion of table and column names You can turn off this feature to get a quicker startup with -A Database changed MariaDB [maxine]>
15:22 < cj> maxine: iptables? 15:22 < maxine> hmmm... iptables is a generic table structure for the definition of rulesets. Each rule within a chain consists of a number of classifiers (iptables matches) and one optional connected action (iptables target).
