All done at the last minute!
Odd batch of links this week.
Your BSD-related fiction book of the week (year? decade?) :’git commit murder‘ is out, set at a (fictional) BSD convention.
Much better than last week, but there wasn’t any hurricane-force winds this week – which helps.
Slightly short this week, maybe because people are prepping for AsiaBSDCon? I have plenty of links for tomorrow’s Lazy Reading.
I measure the success of In Other BSDs by how many different BSD flavors I can reference. This is a good week.
Reminder: “OS : The underlying overhead of computation“is happening tomorrow night with NYCBSD. Go if you can.
Done all at the last minute.
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.
This week’s BSDNow has extended notes about FreeBSD and lld, the LLVM linker, plus notes on the NetBSD scheduler, OpenBSD changes, and so on. It’s very ecumenical.
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!
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.
Started out with a short list, but I managed to find some extra links by Friday.
I get all the BSDs this week.
BSDNow 162 has an interview with Petra Zeidler of the NetBSD Foundation, the nonprofit organization that supports NetBSD-the-operating-system. Plus the usual news, the highlight for me being a link to an explanation of what ^d really does.
A relatively uneventful week, at least for BSD.
