Also, there’s probably going to be DragonFly people at 27C3, and I know there’s going to be some at NYCBSDCon 2010. The early registration discount for NYCBSDCon only lasts about 10 more days, so jump on it while you can; it’s crazy cheap.
Something for everyone this week.
- Via sjg/IRC: The next platforms for DragonFly: Dragon 32 and Dragon 64.
- chmod -x chmod: a slideshow of possible solutions. (via) As ‘blinkkin’ pointed out on IRC: “hammer history /bin/chmod” and “cp /bin/chmod@@0xtransaction_id” would also fix it.
- 328 slides of git-wrangling tips (also via)
- How to pretend to be busy. I wish I had time for this.
- The first MUD, as a solution for class conflict, and not the fighter-vs-mage-vs-cleric type. (via)
Found via a random Google search: SSHGuard. It’s not available in pkgsrc, but it’s in other BSD packaging systems, and it lists DragonFly on the site as a possible host. It monitors various services and blocks access to overly aggressive connections using (on DragonFly) pf. This is similar to scripts discussed here in the past. It also may be useful in light of the recent FTPd problem.
The newest issue of BSD Magazine is all about VPNs and BSD. It’s free to read in PDF form.
I’m going. Venkatesh Srinivas is going. Who else is interested? (See the site.)
The almost-to-200 expisode of BSDTalk has 14 minutes of conversation with John Hixson about PC-Sysinstall and what it could replace.
BSDTalk has another new episode, (197… almost at the 2-century mark!), and it has 37 minutes of conversation with M. Warner Losh about FreeNAS.
After the BSD Show episode with me talking about DragonFly finished, we continued joking around for a good while; Gamaral of the BSD Show! has edited that together into a “B-side“. Enjoy! By this point, I was relaxed, so I sound better.
I’m on the latest BSD Show! podcast. I haven’t listened to it yet – hope I came through OK.
The September issue of BSD Magazine is about BSD and Linux. It’s a free download!
The September issue of the Open Source Business Resource is out, with the theme of “Keystone companies”. “Platform base development” may be a clearer if less exact phrase.
