A short list this week. I’m heading into the final month(s) of an ERP replacement projects at one of my jobs, so it ain’t going to get better for a while.
For some reason smbios device support always gave me trouble on every laptop I worked on for the 2000s. So, this support for smbios identification on EFI-only boots is good news to me.
Events and crazy things are the mini themes this week.
Your unrelated music of the week: rekt.network. (via)
If you want to present a paper, or were thinking about presenting at EuroBSDCon, today’s the deadline for getting it in.
Smushing BSD and Lazy Reading links together into one, again. Tell me if that’s good or bad from where you’re standing.
Your unrelated music of the week: DRASS – see it, say it, slaughtered. Another band name for Shardcore, which I have linked before. AI generated visuals if you can’t tell.
SEMIBUG’s having a presentation on CARP tomorrow. It’s being given by Nick Holland who has a long presentation history. It’ll be online through Jitsi, so anyone can see it.
Nostalgia / game styling is the inadvertent theme of the week.
I’m glomming all BSD and not-BSD into these roundup posts. I don’t think they need to be separate.
Reminder: GEFS, NYCBUG, tomorrow.
I’ve been posting in this new pattern for a while now. The content is mostly the same – DragonFly updates, BSD user meetings, oddball mostly history links – but I’m posting as I see them instead of doing a weekend summary. Which do you prefer? The summary or the drip?
Some links: The Next Generation in Graphics Part 1, talking about the colossal shift in gaming that was Doom/Quake, and different kinds of differential, explaining how GPS is corrected. And here’s something unusual: Captain Beefheart and the Magic Band tracks with single instruments separated out by AI. You can more easily hear how unique John French’s drumming was/is.
If you are near Portugal this September, so is EuroBSDCon 2023. Registration and the call for papers are both out.
VCF East photos. Some of these machines are complete mysteries to me.
The next NYCBUG meeting, May 3rd, will be a talk about GEFS, the Good Enough File System, and porting from Plan9 to OpenBSD.
Michael W. Lucas is talking about his new OpenBSD filesystems book tomorrow at SemiBUG’s meeting. It’s online so you don’t even have to be there.
Registration is open for BSDCan 2023, and here’s what you will see there.
SimCity 2000 on OpenBSD, but should work on most any BSD.
