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.
It’s the convention time of year!
- garbage: #camperchat.
- OPNsense 16.7.4 released.

This week’s BSDNow has no interview, but some good links, including a meaty one about HTTPS implementation at NetFlix with FreeBSD.
BSDNow episode 158 has an interview with Diane Bruce about ham radio and Raspberry Pi hardware, plus the usual news.
I’m a day late posting this because of travel, but: BSDNow 157 has an interview with Richard Yao about ZFS (on Linux?), and more story links. I found the “NetFlix and Fill” article link interesting – those are BSD appliances they are talking about that eat so much of the Internet’s traffic.
It’s been a very slow news week, but at least there’s a new BSDNow episode: The Fresh BSD Experience. There’s an interview with the FreeBSD Foundation intern, Drew Gurkowski, and a lot of ARM news.
BSDNow 155: no Allan, but an interview with Myke Geiger about using FreeBSD in an ISP role, and a bunch of news items.
It’s a good week to learn: BSDNow 154 has no interview, but a lot of tutorials, including ones on GhostBSD, Enlightenment, Steam on FreeBSD, and so on.
Garbage 37 is out, with talk about their format and timing, OpenBSD material, and more Chromebook discussion.
Garbage 35 is up, with news about ChiBUG, an OpenBSD hackathon, and the ritual shaming of computer equipment.
Fuzzing sounds cute, but it’s about finding security problems, not checking for adorable guinea pigs or llamas or something like that. It’s also episode 151 of BSDNow. It looks like there’s no specific interview this week, but plenty of interesting topics and links listed.
BSDNow has reached their I think semicentennial episode, “Sprinkle A Little BSD Into Your Life“. For this episode, they interview Jim Brown about BSD Certification and his FreeBSD-running sprinkler system, plus more news.
I’m actually linking to this week’s Garbage podcast on time. They have shirts coming in now!
This weeks’ BSDNow has an interview with Edicarla Andrade & Vinícius Zavam about FreeBSD-powered robots. Yep, robots. There’s other news there too, but it’s not as interesting unless it is about lasers.
I was traveling and completely missed this, even though it’s on a regular schedule: garbage: Pirates of the Corebootean.
BSDNow 147 is available, with an interview of Glen Barber and Peter Wemm. They’re talking about release engineering, as you may have guessed from the title.
