- Configuration of OpenSMTPD to relay mails to outbound smtp server.
- Let’s Try on OpenBSD: CrossCode and Stardew Valley Multiplayer.

BSDNow 267 is posted a bit early this week, with an interview of Michael W. Lucas, about his upcoming Absolute FreeBSD 3rd edition and local BUG.
I’m posting a day early cause of time zone difference: there’s a meeting of the Polish BSD User Group tomorrow.

There’s a KnoxBUG BSD user group meeting in Knoxville, Tennessee, with the topic of “Real-world Performance Advantages of NVDIMM and NVMe: A Case Study with OpenZFS“, presented by Nick Principe. It’s happening at 6 PM, tonight. They have the prettiest logo of any BUG that I’ve seen.
There’s a social meeting for NYCBUG tomorrow, September 5th, at Suspenders. As far as I can tell, the only difference between “technical meeting” and “social meeting” is if there’s a presentation. Go, if you are near.
If you are near Stockholm, there’s a BSD User Group meeting tomorrow night. Go, if you are near.
Lots of event notices in here… Watch for what’s near you.
- The next KnoxBUG meeting is September 5th, with a Trident demo. I’ll post a reminder.

NYCBUG is having an outdoors meeting in Bryant Park, today, 6:45 PM. Go, if you are near.
I have the normal list of links, but here’s a feature. At first glance, this looks like Netgate, the commercial entity behind pfsense, is not using FreeBSD for their new product. However, Jim Thompson of Netgate steps up and give a full-on explanation, and points out there’s already code out there to do this – it needs contributors.
- Where did devio.us go?
- Do Not Use sha256crypt / sha512crypt – They’re Dangerous. As the source link comments point out, FreeBSD’s implementation may be similar. I haven’t looked at other BSDs, and I’m not qualified to evaluate how dangerous this is or is not. (via)
- Simple Desktop for OpenBSD 6.3. (via)
- New Grammar for smtpd.conf.
