UNIX tools are this week's unintentional theme. Your unrelated robot link of the week: Every new Boston Dynamics robot is creepier than the last.
Look at the ZFS discussions if you want to feel smug as a BSD user.
Normally I'm just linking to BSDNow, but there's even more BSD-themed media coming up today: BSDNow 130 is out, titled "Store all the Things", with an extended summary of the recent Storage Summit. Garbage episode 15 is out, titled "Compressing with Broccoli".  It notes a lack of activity for Bitrig - I still see commits happening, though.
I see this bite people irregularly over the years: if your default shell on login can't run, what do you do?  I've seen it happen because of a missing /usr/lib, and it can happen with out-of-date library references, too.   There's several different ways to deal with it: That last one may be useful if your dports setup gets mangled, somehow - though 'pkg upgrade' has always worked for me.
Francois Tigeot has again updated Intel i915 video support in DragonFly, bringing it even with what's in Linux 4.2.  This will be very useful for Broadwell and Skylake users, and even Broxton, apparently the newest Atom platform.
Welcome the newest DragonFly committer: Bill Yuan.  His ipfw3 work has been going on for a while.
I earn the roguelike tag this week. Your unrelated link of the week: The Voynich Manuscript and Codex Serahinianus, in PDF form.  Ignore the "never-cracked ancient mystery" bit about the Voynich Manuscript, but it's still interesting to look at.
Keep an eye out for BSD user group meetings in your area - just because I didn't note it doesn't mean it isn't happening.
DragonFly 4.4.2, a bugfix release to 4.4.1, is out.  This was mostly prompted by the recent OpenSSL update, but other little fixes have made it in, too.  It's available for download and is probably available at your nearest mirror by now, if you want an image.  The release page is updated, and there's always the Git tag summary for 4.4.2 for the most exact details.
I have DragonFly shirts, helpfully printed up by Sepherosa Ziehau in China.  I have a list of people that are interested in shirts, most of whom remembered to give a shirt size.  I don't have anyone's email address or mailing address on that list. If you are on that list, send me your mailing address. The shirts are marked L/XL/XXL/XXXL, but they run smaller than U.S. versions of those sizes.  I usually find a U.S. XL shirt baggy, but "XXXL" is the one that fit me, for instance.  I'll do my best to place the appropriate one.  This is just an advance apology, since it's too late to change anything if it turns out tight. I'll mail these out as I have the spare cash and time on hand.  (I hope most of you live in the continental U.S.)
Rapid topic shifts this week. Your unrelated tea link of the week: Cuppa Thugs.  
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.
It would help with Burp, which is being ported to a number of BSDs.
BSDNow 128 has an interview of Nick Wolff, the usual roundup of news items, and I'm sure something that matches the title of the episode, but I haven't listened to it yet.
