I have multiple BSD based systems to update, reboot, and hopefully not physically visit in the next week or so.
BSD Now 343 is quite topical this week: viruses and VPNs. Release information, etc., too.
A bit short this week; I think everyone’s been occupied with other issues.
For once, I couldn’t figure out what the name of this week’s BSD Now episode referenced. It’s Data Virtual Address, in ZFS, which gets covered in the show. There’s a specific bit about Go and OpenBSD that I haven’t seen mentioned elsewhere, too. (see show notes)
rcorder-visualize.sh draws the dependencies for rc scripts using dot. Originally in NetBSD, then in FreeBSD, now in DragonFly.
BSD Now 341 is about unification, get it? It’s covering the merging of TrueNAS/FreeNAS, along with the usual roundup of news, including POWER9 and FreeBSD, OpenBSD and Go, and so on.
ChiBUG meets tonight, and it’s at the Oak Park Library, not the usual place. Go, if you are near, and especially if you were too far away, before. This spot may be more accessible.
I have not yet even gone through my BSD RSS feeds for some days and I already have plenty of links for you.
BSD Now 340 is up, with dives into different BSD platform tools; very enjoyable if you like digging into how things work, which of course you do if you are reading this.
Dr. Paul Vixie is giving a talk at NYCBUG’s monthly meeting, titled “Operating Systems as Dumb Pipes“. It’s tomorrow. Go, if you are near; this is one of the people who built basic blocks of the Internet’s infrastructure.
If you are near Stockholm, go to the Stockholm BUG meeting, tomorrow. I’m posting it a bit ahead of time to account for time zone difference.
I am running a bit late posting about it, but BSD Now 339 is out, with conversations about recent different releases, plus as the title says, fundraising.
No theme this week cause I think I hit everything.
BSD Now 338 is up, which strangely is listed as the “100th episode” on the site, but I think that means it’s only indexed through #239. Anyway, it has the normal ingredients – a ZFS article, a convention note, and a link into a conversation about OpenBSD, among other things.
The next scheduled meeting for SEMIBUG is tonight. Go, if you are near.
UNIX history as an accidental theme this week.
Update: NetBSD 9.0 is released.
I like seeing cross-pollination, as I’ve said before. I really like it turning into informal cross-BSD standards.
This week’s BSD Now covers user groups and convention talks and releases and really the full gamut.
