It’s a good mix this week.
This can’t wait for the In Other BSDs weekend: ChiBUG is meeting at Giordano’s, in Oak Park, 6 PM on the 11th. Go if you are anywhere near Chicago.
This week’s BSD Now has a word combo I didn’t expect for a title, plus a number of useful learning links. This week’s highlight: more Yubikey BSD support.
This should be prime convention season, darnit.
Accidental theme of video links, which I would not have expected for a BSD summary.
BUG meetings are canceled, but this can’t be surprising at this point.
ChiBUG meets tonight, and it’s at the Oak Park Library, not the usual place. Go, if you are near, and especially if you were too far away, before. This spot may be more accessible.
Dr. Paul Vixie is giving a talk at NYCBUG’s monthly meeting, titled “Operating Systems as Dumb Pipes“. It’s tomorrow. Go, if you are near; this is one of the people who built basic blocks of the Internet’s infrastructure.
If you are near Stockholm, go to the Stockholm BUG meeting, tomorrow. I’m posting it a bit ahead of time to account for time zone difference.
The next scheduled meeting for SEMIBUG is tonight. Go, if you are near.
ChiBUG is having their monthly meeting at the normal place, Giordano’s, tonight. Next month is a new location.
Hamilton, Ontario, is having what I think is the inaugural meeting for their BUG, tonight. That’s I think the closest one to me so far.
Also, the Polish BUG is meeting tonight. I say “tonight” for both of these, but they are very different time zones.
The Dusseldorf BSD.nrw BUG is also also meeting tonight. Second Tuesdays are popular!
This week’s BSD Now has links to a number of about-BSD articles, as usual. Take note – there’s links to two European BUG meetings I didn’t have noted, under Beastie Bits.
BUGs BUGs BUGs this week. I’ll make sure to note the events again when they get closer, too.
BSD Now 334 is posted, with juuuust the right mix of items; some advocacy, some license confusion (for Linux), etc. I notice linked in the bottom section the
February, er March NYCBUG meeting will have Paul Vixie talking at their meeting, which hasn’t even been mentioned on the NYCBUG site yet.
Unofficial theme: conventions. There’s lots of options this year; you should go. If you are reading this, you’re the right demographic to enjoy one.
No theme evolved, but lots more links this week.
