Lazy Reading for 2016/01/31

I am proud of finding some of these links this week; they are not the usual “here’s what everyone else linked to” that you see.

Your unrelated graph link of the week: Visualizing HipHop trends from 1989 – 2015.  (via)

Another week with plenty of links.

Privatization means rebuilds

That’s a pretty cryptic headline, isn’t it?  John Marino has ‘privatized’ several libraries in DragonFly, so that they can’t get included involuntarily as part of a port build.  That may mean you will need to perform a full rebuild of your system if you are tracking DragonFly-current.

(This is the way to fix ‘system’ languages like Perl was in FreeBSD 4.x – keep them clearly separate from the port version.  It’s about a decade too late for that idea to work out, though.)

I’m always happy when I can compile news for at least 4+ different BSDs at once.

Lazy Reading for 2016/01/17

I’m taking an online course and don’t have as much clicking-about time, unfortunately.

Your unrelated link of the week: Golem Arcana.  For the miniatures gamer with a handheld.

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.
