Overflow from the past two weeks. I’ll have my email and tab backlog cleared next week.
I like when I can get Net, Free, and Open items all in the same week.
The 35th Chaos Communication Congress starts today. (I linked to the multi-day schedule.) It’s one of the few places you can see hacking, from the ground up. So, even if you aren’t near it, you can still see it, live.
If you are going to MeatBSD, the reservations have to be in by Saturday. (Which is why I am posting it now instead of on Saturday for In Other BSDs.)
NYCBUG’s holiday party is tomorrow at Suspenders. Go, if you are near New York City, and talk about what you’d like to see in a presentation. Chances are good someone there is familiar with the topic.
Michael W. Lucas is reprising his MeetBSD keynote, “Why BSD?”, at the November SEMIBUG meeting, happening at the usual location, tonight. Go, if you are near.
Update: you can attend remotely!
Still lots of BSD stuff happening.
BSD Now 271 is up with no interview but a news summary, including EuroBSDCon and MeetBSD con reports, and an OpenBSD and Ansible item that should be interesting to most anyone, among other items.
Backlog finally cleared! You have a lot of clicking to do because of that.
Here’s your reminder: MeetBSD is happening October 19-20 in Santa Clara, CA. That’s the end of this week. Go, if you are near.
EuroBSDCon 2018 unfortunately had no video, but the presentations are showing up online.
BSDNow 265 has a con report – the just-finished EuroBSDCon 2018 in Romania, plus the usual roundup of news items. One news item that will be useful someday: how to perform a BIOS update on a non-Windows computer.
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.
- OpenBSD.Amsterdam. Dedicated OpenBSD/vmd servers, which is a neat idea. Could probably do the same thing with vkernels.
- MeetBSD is happening October 19-20 in Santa Clara, CA. (via)
- Configuring OpenBSD – System and user config files for a more pleasant laptop. Not all of it is OpenBSD-specific. (via)
- Happy Bob’s Libtls tutorial. Also not wholly OpenBSD-specific; more libressl-specific. (via)
- AsiaBSDCon 2019 is happening March 21-24, Tokyo, Japan. (via)
- Ravenports now on gcc 8.2.
- Recent freebsd-jobs posts.
- [talk] ARM – any Tier-1 *BSD options? Nice support work from Netgate.
- libfuzzer, parts 1, 2, and 3 – a Summer of Code project for NetBSD. I linked the first one before, but hadn’t followed up until now. (via)
- OpenBSD, SpamPD and the Startup Bug. (also via)
- Public Access Multics. I am happy just typing that sentence.
No interview this week in BSDNow 261, but links to a recent 1999 convention video, details about TrueOS/Project Trident, and the usual.
This episode has one of the more intriguing titles for BSDNow, and it’s because they are covering a recent hackathon and “BSDCam” (not BSDCan), which I did not know about. The tiny network terminal server mentioned this week may be of use to people, too.
BSDNow 258 showed up a bit early this week: Among the normal news articles about technology and BSD conventions are notes about how HardenedBSD is setting up their non-profit board. I like seeing that sort of governance documented as it’s happening; it’s the right way to inform people.
I have more to post but just plain couldn’t get it all pasted!
BSDNow 257 (which is not as exciting a number as last week but still prime) has no interview but manages to hit all the right notes – every major BSD is mentioned and also links to recent convention reports.
A few of the links are not directly BSD-ish, but related.
