Accidental theme of video links, which I would not have expected for a BSD summary.
I’m posting now because it’s happening Wednesday and waiting for In Other BSDs on Saturday will be too late: the next FreeBSD Office Hours (livestream with Q&A) is happening on the 16th.
BUG meetings are canceled, but this can’t be surprising at this point.
There’s a lot of releases happening.
BUGs BUGs BUGs this week. I’ll make sure to note the events again when they get closer, too.
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.
It was an abnormally quiet week – probably because of the Christmas holiday, or maybe because I cleared my BSD link backlog last week.
CCC 36 is over, but the videos are on Relive and will eventually be collected. CCC is one of the few remaining big not-a-corporate-event events; always worth viewing. (posting now so it doesn’t get lost in the new year.)
Accidental theme this week: roguelikes! Maybe with me that’s not so accidental.
Lots of variety this week.
Accidental theme: BUGs BUGs BUGs and also happy birthday me! It’s a bit brief cause like usual I am working extra.
End of year events are starting to get scheduled; watch for one near you.
Read that last link, if only to make your convention-going safer in the future.

Some commercial stuff this week, even.
Thanks to Erik Blomberg and the Vintage Computer Festival Midwest, I now know the Digest has reached a whole new operating system: CP/M. This entertains me.
(It’s the Digest being browsed in text mode on a TeleVideo TS-803, if you can’t see the screen well enough.)
I’m sure there’s some recent stuff I missed; I will catch it in next week’s roundup.
Posting this now cause tomorrow’s too late: the 2019 Bay Area FreeBSD Vendor and Developer Summit is happening today and tomorrow. Go, if you are near.
