No theme this week for the BSD section.
BSD Now this week is titled ‘EuroBSDCon’, but as far as I know they weren’t there – haven’t listened to the episode yet. Any readers here go?
There’s an unofficial NYCBUG meetup, tomorrow at 6:45PM. Go, if you are near New York City.
SLUUG, the St. Louis Unix Users Group, has a short presentation tonight from James Conroy: “What You Should Get with GIT” and a longer presentation of “Locking Down Your Web Browser” with Scott Granneman. It’s online so anyone can go. It’s not BSD-specific, but it will all apply. (Thanks to Johnathan Drews for the reminder.)
BSDCan 2022 is now going to be online, which also means the CFP has been extended so any last-minute-I’ll-go-now-that-its-virtual people can get their proposals in.
(Posting now because waiting for the normal In Other BSDs post will only give you 48 hours of prep time for a proposal.)
A little short this week but the holidays are catching up to me.
Not just release announcements this week.
Live in-person meetings are happening, slowly, finally.
SEMIBUG’s monthly meeting is online, and it’s tomorrow the 19th, at 1900 hours (-0400, Eastern) via Jitsi. It’s going to be about “the advantages of Emacs”, given by a group member. Go, see, even if it’s just to shake your fist at the screen and mumble “viiiiiiiiiiii”.
Why yes I am trying to clear out my backlog of Solène links.
No pun this time; the episode covers the title exactly – plus more recent headlines.
Lots of analog this week.
HardenedBSD 2021 “State of the Hardened Union”, presented by Shawn Webb, happening at NYCBUG at 6:45 tonight. See the announcement for how to get the invite.
FreeBSD Office Hours are happening tonight, 18:00 UTC. Go, if you’re online.
Update: rescheduled to sometime in the future.
ChiBUG’s having a virtual meeting tomorrow night. Register now, especially if you want to hear what Paul Vixie has to say. (You should)
NYCBUG’s on Zoom, tonight at 18:45 eastern.
It’s online, so everyone can go to “Chatting About TLS and Orcs, by Michael W. Lucas“, tomorrow night. I’m putting this reminder the day before because you have to mail email@example.com to get the Zoom invite.
This week’s BSD Now is a special treat: an interview with author Michael W. Lucas, author of a bunch of BSD and non-BSD books. If you’re looking for presents, he’s selling extra books originally intended for convention sales…
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…
