I like the idea of virtualized machines springing into existence just by trying to connect to them. This is OpenBSD-specific, but could probably be extrapolated to bhyve or NVMM.
Emily Pillmore of the Haskell Foundation is presenting at the next SEMIBUG meeting, tomorrow, at 7 PM.
Just seeing the screens gives me a nostalgic feeling: early Mac floppies on the Internet Archive. Collected by the same guy who did the Apple ][ cracks. (via)

From “Run Your Own Mail Server” chapter 0:
"In 1978 Gary Thuerk, an employee of the Digital Equipment Corporation, emailed several hundred people he didn’t know an invitation to a demonstration of the new DEC packet-switching systems. (...) Five days after the message went out the chief of the US Air Force’s ARPAnet Management Branch, Major Raymond Czahor, called Thuerk’s boss to tell them to never do it again on pain of disconnection. This first advertising email sold twelve million dollars of computers."
Cloud and back again talk by Brian Cantrill. Not BSD specific but he's been involved with other BSD work. (via)
helloSystem 0.8.1 released as a reaction to an 0.8.0 review. Which makes sense.
backlight, both the generic backlight driver and control tool, has been ported to DragonFly.
I have enough link buildup I'm dumping them all:
- Special tcpdump filtering options for OpenBSD's pflog interface.
- Zork III.
- Michael W. Lucas in Jan/Feb 2023 FreeBSD Journal.
- BSDCan 2023 Tutorial: OpenBSD Storage Management.
- Some notes on OpenBSD 7.2 on a Thinkpad X201. What will I do when/if my x220 dies? It's the best laptop.
- Taking a Better Photo of a CRT Screen with a Phone.
- Portney's Earthshapes.
Finally a nice object system for Perl. (via)

"Run Your Own Mail Server", a task that has become unreasonably more difficult in recent years. Related: Who Reads Your Email?
I like the last paragraph in this description of Y2038 tests. (via)
TeX Live 2023 is available on DragonFly.
Not sure what to do with it, but I like the idea of MARCHintosh.
"Tracing and Troubleshooting Open Source Systems" - probably applies to all BSDs.
