Another across-the-BSDs week.
BSDNow 234 is up, and has an interview with Benno Rice of FreeBSD.  There's also chatter about jails, Summer of Code, FreeBSD's new Code of Conduct, libhijack, and so on.

Reached overflow again!  That secretly makes me happy.
This week's BSDNow has a ZFS explainer about what the theoretical maximums on storage could be, plus a whole lotta DTrace.  (Needed a Sun reference in their title this week.)
Some really fun things this week. Your unrelated comics link of the day: Verse.
Very much last-minute; compiled 20 minutes before bed Friday night.
