I am happy to be in the new year.
As in, right now, and online, so join in and say hi.
The NYCBUG Troff presentation is tomorrow night. If you want to attend – and you should, cause it’s online – you need to email to register. I’ve seen the presenter, James K. Lowden, before; he’s an enjoyable speaker. Go, even if you aren’t near.
The first link here is the one that everyone should take advantage of.
Virtual BUG meetings could be fun (see links); I’d like to attend even if it’s not local. If I can put aside time…
The ChiBUG monthly meeting has gone virtual, so go now if you are interested. The thread about it also includes some notes on how to connect under BSD that may be useful beyond this immediate event.
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.
