Perhaps a performance tweaks mini-theme this week?
Dragged right out of my RSS feeds.
Accidental theme of video links, which I would not have expected for a BSD summary.
A bit short this week; I think everyone’s been occupied with other issues.
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.
End of year events are starting to get scheduled; watch for one near you.
Incidentally, my employer, REDCOM, uses FreeBSD as a base for its main product, is deployed in rough areas and in high-security government locations, and is one of the few electronics manufacturers still working entirely in the U.S.. REDCOM also has jobs to fill in New York, where I work. Please, apply if you see a job that interests you – and tell me.

I linked to some other BSD link roundups, so the joy of clicking can continue.
The last weather station link is a real gem.
Straight open tab dump, again!
A late update: BSDCan 2019 registration, plus an update.
There’s a number of long-running BSD series out there nowadays, some of which I’m linking to here. That’s a nice change.
If these aren’t enough links, some of them are links to more links.
Inadvertent theme: release news.
- Our Software Dependency Problem. Hard thinking about something many, many people don’t think hard enough about. This talks about software, but it’s directly analogous to ports/dports/pkgsrc. I’m leading with this even though it’s not directly about BSD, cause it affects anyone using a packaging system.
- I mentioned it before, but FOSDEM 2019, happening right now in Brussels, has a BSD Devroom with a lot of things happening in it; you could spend your entire Saturday in there.
- And something that has me quite excited: The Pinebook Pro, among other hardware announcements for FOSDEM. BSD is being mentioned right there as something to install on it, rather than as an aftermarket hack like with Chromebooks – heartwarming, I tell you. (via)
- Unix flowers. Look for birthtoken while you are at it. (via)

Overflow from the past two weeks. I’ll have my email and tab backlog cleared next week.
I am having trouble keeping up with BSD news items. This is a good problem to have.
Overflow that I couldn’t catch up to before last weekend’s In Other BSD’s posting time. I try to always have these by 9 AM Eastern time Saturday. (Same for Lazy Reading on Sunday) I mentally imagine everyone sitting down with a drink and nothing else to do but click links, those mornings. At least, I hope that’s what it is.
