Lazy Reading for 2016/03/13

I had too many links for this as early as Tuesday.

Your unrelated video link of the week: Rotoscoped Horse.  Taken from the old Muybridge photos.  (via)

Has anyone been watching the AsiaBSDCon video?  I have not been awake/unbusy at the right times.


Hammer not show

The ‘hammer show’ command can be used to dump the B-Tree structure of a Hammer volume, and CRC errors can be spotted.  It’s rare that anyone would need it, but if you do, this dumped information will include file hierarchy information.

If that makes you a bit nervous to repost any of that information when talking about it in public, Tomohiro Kusumi has added an ‘obfuscate’ option to ‘hammer show’ that does just that – it hides path information from the debug output.

New CPUTYPE variables

John Marino rearranged how GCC5 handles CPUTYPE settings.  If you are specifically setting the target CPU when compiling, his commit will give you an exact list of what to target.

Note that I am not saying another architecture – this is all x86_64.  I also don’t recommend doing this unless you have a specific use for it – compiler overoptimizations often create more problems than they fix.

All over the map this week.

Your unrelated link of the week: teasmades, 50% off with the code ‘MOTHERSDAY2016’ until March 9th.  Given the difference in US – UK voltage, I don’t know if this would be a good investment for me, but I’d sure like to have one.

I hope you have some time for reading this week.
