This week’s BSD Now talks about some recent security discussions with telnet and (unrelateD) OpenSSH history, and points to a recent discussion on DragonFly I haven’t even gotten to link yet, cause it’s ongoing.
(telnet is awful but it makes me feel nostalgic, cause of all the times I typed ‘GET HTTP/1.0 /’ into it.)
All over the map this week.
This week’s BSD Now talks about using a Mumble server on OpenBSD, along with a nice range of other topics.
And overflow continues! I am secretly pleased.
BSD Now 307 accomplishes another trifecta week, mentioning Free, Net, and Open, and also mentioning that vBSDCon’s call for papers closes tomorrow – I’m mentioning it now cause it’ll be too late to mention for In Other BSDs this weekend.
Hopefully I am not too late posting this: SEMIBUG meets tonight, and the presentation is Eddie Thieda, talking about OpenBSD on the desktop.
Done early, for once! I managed to complete this by Thursday night.
This could be an In Other BSDs item, but it’s worth highlighting: saugns is a “Scriptable AUdio GeNeration System”; a utility for generating sounds – specifically FM modulation, in a way that will make you think “synthesizers!” There’s a whole language behind it, and the program, as the author, Joel K Pettersson, points out, compiles with no trouble on every BSD.
BSD Now 306 is up, with the normal mix of stories about multiple BSDs… Except two separate ones are about DragonFly, so this week is extra good.
Brian Reynolds will be presenting on “Everyday ZFS” at the next NYCBUG meeting, tomorrow, at the usual location. Go, if you are near.
If you are near the Chicago area, go to the ChiBUG meeting happening tomorrow night.
I have a backlog of more BSD links to add, beyond this – it was a busy week!
I’m late posting this because I was on an island in Lake Huron instead of near a computer, but here it is now: BSD Now 304 is titled “Changing face of Unix” – that link is the show notes and will tell you more.
There’s a meeting of the NetBSD Japan user’s group, and an informal users session, tomorrow, in Tokyo. Go, if you are near. (via)
This week’s BSD Now talks about the normal assortment of news, including DragonFly’s release, and an explanation of the Vulkan framework in OpenBSD; something I hadn’t read about yet.
A happy note for the end of the week: I like seeing cross-BSD work. (and POSIX)
This week’s BSD Now talks a whole lot about ZFS, which is no surprise given the OpenZFS events going on. There’s other news, of course.
