Vermaden, who I link to on the regular, has been doing an excellent job of posting BSD links to lobste.rs.
I always thought IRC was pretty decentralized, but I didn’t realize talk(1) was designed to work machine-to-machine. That means in theory that if you have a talk(1) binary on your machine, you could chat directly to anyone else with the same binary, even on a different platform. Since 4.3BSD! Anyway, I only realized this because of this recent bugfix thanks to Dan Cross.
A very straightforward title in this week’s BSD Now; worth listening to for more information on Wireguard, the new hotness.
This week’s BSD Now talks about the usual hardware, but also gets into the recently announced Allen K. Briggs scholarship.
Aaron LI has ported timeout(1) to DragonFly. It’s a way to run a command with a time limit, and I’m happy to say it is a cross-BSD item, coming from NetBSD by way of FreeBSD.
It’s online, so everyone can go to “Chatting About TLS and Orcs, by Michael W. Lucas“, tomorrow night. I’m putting this reminder the day before because you have to mail email@example.com to get the Zoom invite.
I am happy to be in the new year.
This week’s BSD Now has a bunch of “project status report” items – normal reports, not end of year roundups, despite the date. Good reading if you aren’t familiar with the work involved, in any case.
As in, right now, and online, so join in and say hi.
There’s an Q&A session for this week’s BSD Now. I haven’t looked carefully enough to see if this is the last for the year, but there’s some fun what-are-you-running-at-home material in there.
Working on less traditional BSD links here.
This week’s BSD Now talks about shell history, Plan 9, and new-to-me ArisbluBSD, so it should be fun.
I haven’t had much to report this week, but there is a new episode of BSD Now.
BSD Now isn’t getting back into the punning headline territory it used to occupy; this week’s broadcast is using the title of the first article discussed – so there’s virtualization, tools, and so on.
The NYCBUG Troff presentation is tomorrow night. If you want to attend – and you should, cause it’s online – you need to email to register. I’ve seen the presenter, James K. Lowden, before; he’s an enjoyable speaker. Go, even if you aren’t near.
The first link here is the one that everyone should take advantage of.
