BSD Now 271 is up with no interview but a news summary, including EuroBSDCon and MeetBSD con reports, and an OpenBSD and Ansible item that should be interesting to most anyone, among other items.
Ensuring Perl’s Viability on FreeBSD: A NYCBUG-NY.PM Collaboration is the presentation at tomorrow’s NYCBUG meeting. Going by the details, it’s covering multiple BSDs. Go, if you are near – I wish I was.
Backlog finally cleared! You have a lot of clicking to do because of that.
This week’s BSDNow has a whole lot of release news – GhostBSD, OpenBSD, OpenSSH, plus plenty more. Make sure to check the Beastie Bits at the bottom of the page.
It’s a mad rush to get these all posted in time for the weekend.
BSDNow 269, along with convention reports and other items, covers something I never expected: System V daemons on BSD.
Well, I cleared my tab backlog, but not my RSS backlog…
This week’s BSDNow has a lot of “You will not regret knowing this” material – ZFS performance measurement, 2FA SSH, and using Netcat in various ways.
SemiBUG is having the monthly meeting tonight. The presenter is Nick Holland, talking about SPECTRE mitigations in OpenBSD, and similar mechanisms. If you are near, go.
Here’s your reminder: MeetBSD is happening October 19-20 in Santa Clara, CA. That’s the end of this week. Go, if you are near.
Still playing catchup with links.
BSDNow 267 is posted a bit early this week, with an interview of Michael W. Lucas, about his upcoming Absolute FreeBSD 3rd edition and local BUG.
I’m posting a day early cause of time zone difference: there’s a meeting of the Polish BSD User Group tomorrow.
Michael W. Lucas is giving a talk at mug.org tonight; he may have physical copies of his new Absolute FreeBSD, 3rd edition available. Go, if you are near. Pro tip: If you are late but still want to catch up to Michael, look for the nearest gelato shop.
Still catching up on links.
BSDNow 266 is up, and while the title is “File Type History”, there’s a number of “this is how I use BSD” stories on there, which I always find interesting.
6:30 tonight: NYCBUG’s monthly meeting, with the topic of Subdo. I don’t know what that is, but we all can find out: tonight’s meeting will be streamed.
There’s a KnoxBUG BSD user group meeting in Knoxville, Tennessee, with the topic of “Real-world Performance Advantages of NVDIMM and NVMe: A Case Study with OpenZFS“, presented by Nick Principe. It’s happening at 6 PM, tonight. They have the prettiest logo of any BUG that I’ve seen.
EuroBSDCon 2018 unfortunately had no video, but the presentations are showing up online.
