I have multiple BSD based systems to update, reboot, and hopefully not physically visit in the next week or so.
A bit short this week; I think everyone’s been occupied with other issues.
Throwing all the links I can out there.
No theme this week cause I think I hit everything.
UNIX history as an accidental theme this week.
Update: NetBSD 9.0 is released.
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.
Quiet week, so catch up on your reading here.
I managed to miss the Thursday update to BSDNow (#329) – Michael W. Lucas is interviewed mostly about his
unnatural love of gelato BSD books , and he’s always an entertaining talker.
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.
