BSDCan 2010, coming up the 13th-14th of May, has put out the call for papers.  The website says proposals start December 19th, but I suppose that's just the day you start handing them in.
BSDTalk episode 180 is a 25-minute conversation with Girish Venkatachalam about ... stuff.  (I am posting before listening.)
Thunderbird, in pkgsrc, has been updated to version 3.  This means that if you don't want to make the upgrade right yet, you'll want to follow mail/thunderbird2.  This won't affect binary package users until the next quarterly release.
Alex Hornung pointed out that getting the Linux Test Project to work on DragonFly (using the linuxulator) would be a very helpful step in that same Linux emulation.  Running the LTP does not require programming skills, incidentally.
Updated pkgsrc-2009Q3 packages for DragonFly 2.5, for i386 and for x86_64 are available.
Jon Birrell, a contributor to a number of BSD projects (primarily FreeBSD), has died.  His friend and coworker Craig Rodrigues has posted a notice about his death, along with some memories.  It's always awful when someone dies, but it always strikes me about how when an open source contributor dies, it's noticed, quietly, worldwide.
That's a mouthful, isn't it?  There's a fresh build of pkgsrc packages for 32-bit DragonFly 2.4, from pkgsrc-2009Q3, on  Utilities like pkg_radd should find it automatically.  New builds for i386 2.5 and 64-bit 2.5 are on the way.  (though pkgsrc packages built on 2.4 should work fine on 2.5.)
The recent PC-BSD and FreeBSD issues of BSD Magazine are available as PDFs.  (via)
I like linkblogging, especially because there's been a lot of good stuff floating about:
Thomas Nikolajsen came up with some ideas for making the configuration files for a given Hammer volume accessible, even when that volume is being presented over NFS.  He's looking for more ideas.
Several people have been working on having DragonFly compile with clang.  Alex Hornung's updated the clang page on the DragonFly site for details; if this interests you, a conversation on EFNet #dragonflybsd may be in order.
The National Center for the History of Electronic Games is looking for tangible artifacts having to do with old text-based games, like Adventure or Zork.  The article includes some history, too. (This place is in my town, and it's eye-bleedingly awesome.  I predict that a few years from now, when people realize what this is, it will become a game history Mecca along the lines of PAX.)
This blog post from Peteris Krumins lists all the publicly available Introduction to Algorithms lectures from MIT, and links to his summary for each, so you can find out what it's like before investing in over an hour of lecture.  Very specific but very valuable stuff.
