End of year events are starting to get scheduled; watch for one near you.
This Turkey Day (for U.S. readers) episode of BSD Now  talks about the perennial idea of BSD admin certification, along with the usual roundup of recent news.
Small computers is the accidental theme this week.  
Read that last link, if only to make your convention-going safer in the future.
BSD New 325 has a bunch of release news this week, including FreeBSD 12.1, and as you can guess from the title, rainbow tables.
If you are like me, you've typed "make buildworld && make buildkernel && make installkernel ..." about a zillion times.  Now, you can encapsulate that process in a shorter statement: 'make build-all install-all'.  The real benefit is these new steps also run in parallel to match the number of CPUs present, and logs to file instead of the console, automatically.
Some of the larger application sets on DragonFly have had trouble building, and inconsistent problems with that build.  i.e. rust would fail, but in different parts of the build process, every time.  It looks to be a problem with signal interaction, and there's now much safer ways to do that on DragonFly. That is going to require a full buildworld/buildkernel if you are on DragonFly-master, 5.7.  Release/5.6 users are unaffected.
Happy birthday to my father, today. Your unrelated music link of the week: The Wyrding Module: Typhonic Neural Tantra.  (via multiple places)
Some commercial stuff this week, even.
BSD Now 324 is up, with the normal mix of content.  It includes a heck of a awk statement for renaming files, and mention of a deployment management system for BSD I hadn't heard about - Bastille.
