In Other BSDs for 2018/06/23

Lots of announcements, lots of reading.  Note the first item listed is happening today.

In Other BSDs for 2018/03/31

Happy Almost Fool’s Easter Day!  I have to be at work in a few hours, at 3 AM, so this is all I was able to find in the time I have.

In Other BSDs for 2018/03/17

The first news item about pfSense is not necessarily new, but new to me.

In Other BSDs for 2017/09/09

Already overflowed to next week.

 

In Other BSDs for 2017/04/01

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.

In Other BSDs for 2016/04/23

I apologize for ending with a question.

In Other BSDs for 2016/03/05

I hope you have some time for reading this week.

Lazy Reading for 2015/10/18

Accidental topic this week: very, very old computers.

Your comics link of the week: Cartozia Tales #1, with more added.  I subscribed to this series long ago, and it’s a lot of fun.

In Other BSDs for 2015/03/14

I goofed up and didn’t complete last weeks’ In Other BSDs before it published, so you get some extra this week.

Lazy Reading for 2014/11/23

Lots to read this week.

Your unrelated link of the week: Snowpocalypse 2014.  I grew up there and now live not too far away.  That’s really not that much snow for the area; it’s just that it fell so quickly.

In Other BSDs for 2014/09/20

Low on the source links this week, but there’s plenty else.

Update: from talk@nycbug, George Rosamond gives a nice APU setup summary.

Summer of Code 2014 followup

I followed up with Google on why DragonFly isn’t in Summer of Code this year.  It is exactly as I suspected: they want to get new organizations in.  DragonFly’s been doing it for 6 years, so they are picking new orgs over returning ones.  This is apparently the same reason NetBSD isn’t in this year, either.

(Honestly, I can use the break.)

No DragonFly in Summer of Code

DragonFly wasn’t accepted for Summer of Code, which frankly I expected to have happen last year – we’ve been participating every year since 2008.  However, FreeBSD and (for the first time) OpenBSD are listed as participating mentoring institutions, so you can still get your BSD/GSoC going.
