Accidental theme this week: books.
“Old consumer computers” is this week’s accidental theme.
Your unrelated video of the week: Turbo Encabulator. There’s more like that out there, like the Rockwell Retro Encabulator.
This turned into a BSD User Group event list, which makes me happy. There was nothing like that 3 or 5 or whatever years ago.
NYCBUG is meeting tonight for an installfest, plus dinner and drinks afterward. Attend if you are close, and especially if you want to get BSD on some odd hardware.
BSDNow 174 this week presents a recap of the 2016 year, including chunks of interviews you may have missed.
This is another one of those events that’s coming up too soon to wait on my normal BSD Saturday summary post. FOSDEM 2017 is looking for ‘BSD devroom’ talks, with the suggested length being 45 minutes. The deadline is December 10th, in 3 days. Submit a proposal if you will be there.
I have a pretty significant backlog of links for this week – to the point I had to open a separate browser window to sort out open tabs.
The cohabiting part of this week’s BSDNow is about someone running FreeBSD and Gentoo on the same ZFS drive. No interview but lots of material from the recent EuroBSDCon and MeetBSD conventions.
A much more well-rounded crop of BSD links this week.
Several pfSense links this week, which by complete coincidence is the same week that I’ve been adding network cards to my older pfSense devices at work to create radio links.
BSDNow 164 has a whole lot of conversation about things that start with V, plus an interview with Josh Paetzel of iXsystems about the upcoming MeetBSD, FreeNAS and other things.
A somewhat short week this week, for BSD.
BSDNow 161 has sort of 2 interviews this week. has Allan Jude talking about his EuroBSDCon trip, plus Michael Shirk talking about Bro on FreeBSD. Also, lots of news items right on the BSDNow page.
Mark Sumter’s giving a talk on ZFS at tonight’s KnoxBUG meeting. Hurry! I should have posted this sooner but work tied me up today.
It’s the convention time of year!
BSDNow 160’s title is linked to Allan Jude being at EuroBSDCon, happening right now. (Groff is there too!) Episode 160 is available in any case, and I bet there will be some sort of interview(s) coming out of this.
Roguelike Celebration, happening tomorrow (the 17th) in San Francisco. Normally this would be in Lazy Reading, but that’s too late. (via)
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.
