Hey, there’s a new garbage!
No interview in this week’s BSDNow, but lots of news topics including a note about how easy it is to mitigate WannaCry problems using BSD technologies. Also of potential interest, it links to an in-depth look at how traffic shaping in pfSense was able to significantly improve a home internet connection, from someone whose job is to think about that sort of thing.
There’s been enough this week I’ve already started next week’s BSD entry.
