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.
It’s a Cyber Monday deal, so I can’t wait until the normal weekend roundup: BSD Magazine is offering their Devops with Chef on FreeBSD course for 30% off today only.
I use italics a lot this week.
Even the U.S. holiday doesn’t stop the regular posting of BSDNow episodes. #169 is up now. I like the Let’s Encrypt vs. the FreeBSD cluster story, cause that’s an interesting and intricate problem.
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.
This week’s BSDNow episode is almost all FreeBSD, all the time. No interview subject this week. I’m going by the written summary because the video is showing as private… but maybe I’m catching it just before posting?
I’ve been on the road all week, so it seems like I just posted about the last episode. BSDNow 167 is online, and it returns to the interview format. Scott Long of Netflix is interviewed. He’s part of the reason most of the Internet runs through BSD.
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.
I get all the BSDs this week.
Oddball links for BSD this week – but pay attention to the first one.
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.
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.
This week’s BSDNow has no interview, but some good links, including a meaty one about HTTPS implementation at NetFlix with FreeBSD.
