There’s always a rush of links after a holiday, as people sit at home and catch up on what they’ve wanted to do.
Last anything for the year!
A much more well-rounded crop of BSD links this week.
Started out with a short list, but I managed to find some extra links by Friday.
This was an easy week to put together; there’s a lot of links this week. Last week was slow – maybe it was because of EuroBSDCon?
A relatively uneventful week, at least for BSD.
Happy birthday to my younger daughter.
This post fleshed out at the last minute, between road trips.
A week of travel didn’t get in the way of links! RSS feeds are still fantastic tools for those who know how to use them.
A nice wide range of topics, again!
This week filled up fast, despite me having an exam to take in the middle of it.
Your unrelated link of the week: HOW TO OPERATE YOUR FROG. (via)
I’ve finally used up my Lazy Reading links backlog!
Your sort-of off-topic link of the week: Michael W. Lucas’s fiction is, for a short time, part of a larger book bundle which is available for less than the price of buying it all individually. Buy now if you want a deal/lots of fiction to read.
The GNN in the title is George Neville-Neil, interviewed on BSDNow 136 about the TeachBSD project, plus the usual collection of recent BSD news. The show title comes from this station advert.
This week’s BSDNow has an interview with Michael W. Lucas, BSD author. He often speaks at events, so it should be an enjoyable talk.
Normally I would save this for a “In Other BSDs” weekend edition, but it would be too late: if you want to get in on a book sponsorship for Michael W. Lucas’s next FreeBSD Mastery book, you have only a few days left to join in. His last book sponsorship worked out perfectly, timing-wise.
This is actually overflow completely from previous weeks. I am not sure how I am ending up so far ahead on these but not the Saturday BSD items. As long as it shows up on the expected day, I suppose it works out.
Your kinda-unrelated item for the week: Butterfly Stomp, Michael W. Lucas’s free short story. He writes fiction when he’s not writing BSD books.
This time, this was all last-minute.
Look at the ZFS discussions if you want to feel smug as a BSD user.
Several book links this week.
Thing I should link more regularly: Garbage, a podcast that isn’t specifically about BSD but happens to cover it a lot. I linked to it when it was starting, but didn’t catch new episodes (fixed by finding the RSS feed). There’s been a bunch since then, so you have plenty of listening material now.
