Another BSD User Group event tomorrow, the 7th: HELBUG, a brand new BUG starting in Helsinki, Finland. The announcement has details on where to find it and what they’ll be doing. Go, if you are near.
I finally worked through my Lazy Reading link backlog.
- Computer-generated books, a list.
- Every Icon, eventually drawing every 32×32 monochrome image possible. I remember a 8×8 physical hardware version of this called All Possible Images, some years ago. Google doesn’t remember it, though, or chooses to give me links to API docs instead.
- Frankenbook, Shelley’s Frankenstein with additional essays and annotations worked directly into the original text. This is something web pages were built for. (via)
- MacTote, for lugging your FatMac around. (via)
- Grandma’s Zelda map. (also via)
- Actual screenshot.
- Towards LaTeX in the Browser. (via)
- Unix influence in history. (via)
- The UNIX Operating System: A Model for Software Design. Via this page. The target is behind a paywall. The mention of Kernighan as an author, though, made me wonder if he had published it separately. He hasn’t, but I did find his books page at Princeton.
- My Delorean runs Perl. (via)
- The revival of blogging. English translated version.
- The vi input model. (via)
- Mycroft II, an open source voice assistant. Are there more like this?
- How’s your soldering technique?
- Welcome to Armageddon! An excellent roguelike history from an excellent magazine.
- Why create a new Unix shell? (via)
Your unrelated link of the week: see the last paragraph of this Don Hertzfeldt interview; it’s important. “Every time you pay to watch something you’re casting a vote. You’re saying, ‘Hey go make more of this, please.’ Audiences have all of the power to shape what gets made and what doesn’t.”
- The history of NetBSD/atari and support for ATARI compatible Milan. Not in English, but it’s a slide deck so lots of pictures. (via)
- The OpenBSD Foundation 2018 Fundraising Campaign. “If a penny was donated for every pf or OpenSSH installed with a mainstream operating system or phone in the last year we would be at our goal.” (via)
- Any good Unix options available for X86?
- The LLVM Sanitizers stage accomplished. (via)
- ZFS vs. OpenZFS.
- TrueNAS makes the cut for Avid editing.
- DiscoverBSD for 2018/01/29.
- Install OpenBSD on dedibox with full-disk encryption. (via)
- OPNSense 18.1 released.
BSDNow has made it so far that I have to double-check the episode number! In 231, they cover some history and some upcoming software work.
dragonflydigest.com is changing providers today, so the site may go missing for a while as DNS updates, and as I scramble my config.
