The St. Louis Unix Users Group monthly meeting is tonight at 6:30 Central time, talking about rsnapshot and LDAP. It’s online, so you can attend even if you are not near.
There’s a new dports build, and there’s been some updates so a new point release to 6.2.2 for DragonFly is a good idea. The new binary packages are available now with ‘pkg upgrade’, and I’ll work on 6.2.2 over the next few days.
This was done very early; I have been rigorous at cleaning up open tabs.

- A tip: ctrl-A and ctrl-E move your cursor to the start or end of your command line, non-destructively. It’s taken me 3 years to learn to use that instead of erases-the-whole-line ctrl-U.
