Tomorrow night, KnoxBUG’s monthly meeting has Sam Fourman of iXSystems talking about FreeNAS. Show up if you’re near!
A good chunk of this is overflow from last week.

Slightly short this week, maybe because people are prepping for AsiaBSDCon? I have plenty of links for tomorrow’s Lazy Reading.

If you are anywhere near KnoxBUG’s meeting place (mid-Tennessee, US), Joe Maloney will be presenting on OpenRC and TrueOS, tomorrow night. See the link for address and times.
A lot of the real content this week is buried in the comments, strangely.

- BSDploy, linked in comments on the Digest earlier this week, but the source link here has some interesting history, including that rsync.net came from the first VPS provider, which was… jails!
Reminder: “OS : The underlying overhead of computation“is happening tomorrow night with NYCBSD. Go if you can.
There will be pizza pie, and Raspberry Pi, for installing BSD, at the next KnoxBUG meeting, tomorrow, for those near Tennessee.
Note that it was originally scheduled for Tuesday and had to be moved up a night because of a conflict – so your schedule has changed even if you were already planning to go.
Done all at the last minute.
- Courses 6 to 9 of DevOps with Chef and FreeBSD are out.
- Ansible and pfSense. (via)
- “OS : The underlying overhead of computation“, an upcoming talk at NYCBSD. Note that it’s on Feb 1, not March 1 as originally posted. I’ll post a reminder.

- “Noob user – want to install a UNIX OS. Help a bit?“
- Michael W. Lucas will be talking at Kansas LinuxFest 2017 – in May.
