Lazy Reading for 2016/05/29

What are people using for a web framework these days?  I was messing with Fat Free Framework, and there seems to be about a zillion options, for many languages, these days.

In Other BSDs for 2016/05/28

Fun links, this week.


Huge wifi resync

Matthew Dillon and Adrian Chadd have updated the wifi setup in DragonFly, incorporating Adrian’s FreeBSD changes (and merging back some of Matt’s from DragonFly).  This affects the ath, rum, iwm, iwn, run, bwn, urtwn, wi, ral, iwi, ndis, and wpi drivers.  The ‘an’ driver has been removed, too.  I’m not going to even try to link to all the commits.

If you’re on DragonFly master and are using one of these devices, now is the time to update and try.  Note that this removes the separate network interface that’s specific to the device and creates only a wlanX device.

Update: Matt reminded me that at least half the work came from Imre Vadasz; I missed it because I was only looking at the commit email names – mea culpa.

Summer convention season is coming; start scheduling!

BSDNow 142: Diving for BSD Perls

BSDNow 142 is out.  You might think the title is about Perl, the language, on BSD, but it’s because there’s an interview with FreeBSD developer Alfred Perlstein.  I’m sure he gets that a lot.  Among the other news on the episode is a note about ordering BSDNow shirts: do it today because it’s the last day they will be available!  Also, you can order now and pick it up at BSDCan if you’re going to be there.

(I’m linking to the jupiterbroadcasting site because the site isn’t updated as of this writing.)

Lazy Reading for 2016/05/15

I have some links I meant to post weeks ago, so lots of variety this week.

Your unrelated link of the week: The GLOG.  The Goblin Laws of Gaming, a homebrew RPG.  I love just reading the rules on these sorts of things.
