Note there’s several BUG meetings coming up.
Your book plug of the week: “Of course, if you don’t want to sponsor a book on SNMP I can’t blame you for that either. It’s a horrible topic that most of us would rather pretend didn’t exist.“
It’s Thursday, so BSD Now 317 is posted, with the usual news summary – and a recap of EuroBSDCon 2019.
If you are near Portland, Oregon tonight and like pizza, go. Of course you like pizza!
This week’s BSD Now has lots of material to work with, but the part they talk about that’s new to me: Homura.
I goofed and didn’t post about the SEMIBUG meeting tonight, so it is too late now… but this video was the topic of discussion.
Are you near Chicago? ChiBUG meets tonight. Go, if you are near.
Still a backlog, no matter how much I link.
A little late linking this, but never mind: BSD Now 315 includes, among its other usual links, a recap of the vBSDCon experience, from the just-completed event.
Mentioning it here because it’s timely: the Vintage Computer Festival Midwest is happening this weekend, and if I wait until the normal day I would post this – Sunday in Lazy Reading – it will be too late. Go if you are anywhere near. (Credit goes to joshua stein on the ChiBUG mailing list – don’t forget their meeting next Tuesday.)
I have an RSS backlog now.
This week’s BSD Now is up, discussing a bunch of informational topics – including what’s happening with dsynth, how virtual memory works, streaming on NetBSD, and other links.
vBSDCon 2019 starts tonight and runs for 2 days – go if you are near.
I don’t know if it’s going to be streamed, but if tonight’s NYCBUG meeting and presentation is streamed, it’ll be visible here. (Preposting so I don’t miss it.)
Tomorrow’s NYCBUG meeting is “Setting up a convenient working environment“, with Ivan Ivanov. Go, if you are near. It will be streamed but I don’t have a link for that at the time I’m writing this.
I have a number of BSD user group notifications here – please tell me if you have a group and I’m not regularly posting about it.
- NYCBUG meeting on the 4th: Setting up a convenient working environment, with Ivan Ivanov. I’ll post a reminder.
- ChiBUG is meeting on the 17th. RSVP on the mailing list if you are going. I’ll post a reminder.
- vBSDCon 2019 is happening next weekend, on September 5-7, in Reston, VA. Go if you are near; every report I read about last year’s event said it was a rollicking good time. The schedule is up.
- FreeBSD on RISC-V as a voting machine test. BSD is common for embedded, high-security hardware – and people tend to not know because it’s embedded, high-security hardware. (via)

- ‘Cube 2: Sauerbraten‘ on FreeBSD.

The pleasingly-symmetrical BSD Now episode 313 is up now. If you use TLS (and you do), it may be interesting. Also, a link to a Thinkpad and BSD test – also of interest to many.
Incidentally, my employer, REDCOM, uses FreeBSD as a base for its main product, is deployed in rough areas and in high-security government locations, and is one of the few electronics manufacturers still working entirely in the U.S.. REDCOM also has jobs to fill in New York, where I work. Please, apply if you see a job that interests you – and tell me.

This week’s BSD Now covers a lot of topics, including linking to a gentle explanation of package management, which surely no reader here needs to have explained? Well, you are covered if so.
This is a somewhat pre-made post coming off a week on the road, so I packed it chock-full.
