BSDNow 2^8: Because Computers

The newest BSDNow episode is number 256 but it’s numbered as a power of 2 which makes me irrationally happy.  (Rationally happy?  Squarely happy?  Trying to add in a combination math and language joke there.)

Aaaaanyway, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, some Linux comparisons, ZFS, and so on.  It’s the usual content, though I don’t mean that to sound dismissive.  It’s more that I’ve been driving for the past 10 hours and have to go to work in 6, and I’m going directly from this keyboard to bed.

 

BSDNow 249: Router On A Stick

BSDNow 249 is covering a really wide range of topics including an uncommon amount of NetBSD, so I’m going to do the easy thing and repeat the summary: “OpenZFS and DTrace updates in NetBSD, NetBSD network security stack audit, Performance of MySQL on ZFS, OpenSMTP results from p2k18, legacy Windows backup to FreeNAS, ZFS block size importance, and NetBSD as router on a stick.”

Opinion time: The Reddit / Hacker News forums have reached the anything/everything point where there’s no longer a focus.  Lobste.rs is worth visiting, though, for BSD content and in general.
