The new look on undeadly.org sure is nice.
I was reminded of this thanks to the Google Calendar entry: SemiBUG is having their monthly meeting tomorrow night (the 22nd, in case that’s tonight by the time you read this), and it’s one of my favorite formats – a series of lightning talks with 2 slides, 5 minutes.
It’s accidental how-to week!
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.
There’s been enough this week I’ve already started next week’s BSD entry.
The next NYCBUG meeting is May 3rd, in about 48 hours. Rob Seward will be presenting on random number generators. The same announcement for this meeting also notes the upcoming pkgsrcCon, BSDCan, and EuroBSDCon.
It’s long article title week!
If you are nearby, KnoxBUG is having a presentation from Caleb Cooper tomorrow night, titled “Advanced BASH Scripting“.
I like it just for the title: Josh Grosse is presenting about IPv6 at the SemiBUG meeting scheduled for tomorrow. Go, if you are near.
It’s happening tomorrow night at the NYCBUG meeting: a yes.c code reading. (more details) Go, if you are close.
Odd batch of links this week.
Your BSD-related fiction book of the week (year? decade?) :’git commit murder‘ is out, set at a (fictional) BSD convention.
KnoxBUG is meeting tonight – there’s no speaker scheduled, so it will be open discussion.
Michael W. Lucas will be presenting at SemiBUG tomorrow, talking about the OpenBSD web stack.
Slightly short this week, maybe because people are prepping for AsiaBSDCon? I have plenty of links for tomorrow’s Lazy Reading.
The normal monthly meeting for NYCBUG for March 1st (tomorrow) is canceled; next month’s meeting is still on.
BSD author Michael W. Lucas is talking at the Troy Public Library (Michigan, not New York) tonight, about his nonfiction writing. Go, if you like his books and/or if you are thinking about technical writing for yourself. He has another appearance coming up on March 11th.
I measure the success of In Other BSDs by how many different BSD flavors I can reference. This is a good week.
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.
