Lazy Reading for 2017/10/29

This is another one of those ‘wide variety’ weeks, so settle in; I am confident at least one of these links will grab you.

Your unrelated link of the week: Lynda Barry is the funk queen of the galaxy, a fantastic cartoonist, and now the best ever advice columnist.

For once, I was able to work ahead and get this done early!

Cobbled together Friday night because my new job oddly has less hours of work but less time to screw around.  That’s for the best.

DragonFly 4.9 users and dports

Because of the major version number change, there’s no packages built for DragonFly 4.9.  Your options are to either update to 5.1 (which you probably meant to do anyway if you are running current) or manually point to the newest packages.  Or just build from dports.

For clarity, this does not affect you at all if you are running 5.0 release.  It only affects you if you are running DragonFly-current and have not updated in a while.

I have more links to post but I just plain ran out of time.

Your crazy update of the week: The Beacon Project.

Less crazy/better idea: The Church of the SubGenius | A Documentary.  Pledging.
