Much better this week; I actually have links.

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.

I use italics a lot this week.

EFI run-time ABI support in DragonFly

UEFI, which I casually sum up as the replacement for BIOS, has been seeing some support in DragonFly, but not within the installer.  Matthew Dillon and Sascha Wildner has ported over FreeBSD’s EFI ABI support, which I think means support for various EFI applications and features.  I haven’t booted a machine using UEFI in any significant way, so I don’t have a good explanation – but I am sure this is useful for people with new hardware.

Update: some explanation plus a note that it’s experimental and you could brick your machine.

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.

A somewhat short week this week, for BSD.

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.

I’ve never had as many hackathon links as I did for g2k16 over this week and last.
