I apologize for ending with a question.

garbage[23]: High-availability real-time clustering dealy


Garbage 23 is up cause it’s Friday and the content is initially summarized like this: “Brandon tries not to use Google for a week”.  It’s apparently not that bad?

This is one of those weeks where a bunch of release all tumble together by chance.

garbage 22: potential


Garbage number 22 is out, and talks about a number of things, including NVMe support in OpenBSD, programming in Go, and ‘reader-submitted issues’.

garbage[21]: Much ado about nothing


This week’s garbage podcast is out, with some OpenBSD topics and also some interesting direct experience of licensing violations.

garbage[20]: OpenBSD 5.9


The 20th garbage episode, justing by the summary, talks a lot about the new OpenBSD 5.9 release and other BSD-related matters.

garbage[18]: Pixel C, Raspberry Pi 3


Garbage 18 is out, and talks about the hardware in the title – and also goes into tethering between Android and OpenBSD, which I am sure someone will find immediately useful.

Has anyone been watching the AsiaBSDCon video?  I have not been awake/unbusy at the right times.

garbage[16]: You guys got it wrong, your algorithms suck


Garbage 16 is out, with OpenBSD news and general tech talk.  There’s apparently progress on Raspberry Pi 3 support.

(Podcasts tend to be timely, and time-dependent, so I’m not saving this for the weekend In Other BSDs)

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.

There’s a lot of convention links this week, which is mostly an accident.  If any of them are near you, go!  BSD conventions are always fun, in my experience.

That first link is important.  DragonFly, as a project, hasn’t had issues like that yet, but that’s more a side effect of it being a smaller project rather than anything else.

End of year donations


Even though DragonFly is not incorporated as a non-profit, there’s been a rash of unsolicited donations in the last few weeks, all of which are appreciated.  For end-of-year – or start-of-new-year donations – there’s also the 501(c)3 organizations behind FreeBSD, NetBSD, and OpenBSD, too.

DragonFly libm changes


DragonFly now has the same math library (libm) as OpenBSD, replacing an earlier combined version of I think what NetBSD and FreeBSD ran.  This doesn’t necessarily directly affect you, but it’s work worth doing; matching the underlying frameworks between BSDs helps everyone.

Hammer spreads via GSoC


DragonFly committer Joris Giovannangeli has a Google Summer of Code project.  He’s bringing Hammer2 to OpenBSD, in single-node form.  It’s a very difficult project, but Joris is a very talented worker.

I’m not sure how I ended up with so much BSD material this week, but hey, we all benefit!

Your extended read: scaling linux-based router hardware recommendations, from the NANOG operators list.  Follow the thread.  It’s theoretically about Linux, but people name BSD solutions all through it.  Hmm…
