This week’s BSD Now talks about merchandise! No, it’s really starting with a license discussion. A merchandise-finding episode would be a good idea, though.
BSD Now 278 has an interview of Marshall Kirk McKusick, from BSDCan 2018. If you aren’t familiar with him, he’s been involved with BSD possibly longer than you’ve been alive, and you’re probably using code he wrote, one way or another.
Podcast for the weekend: garbage.
BSD Now episode 277 touches on a bunch of things like updating FreeBSD from 11 to 12, and Knuth history, but it links to some helpful directions for using nmap, which I think is one of those basic tools that should be in everyone’s arsenal, along with wireshark.
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.
This week’s BSDNow has a whole lot of release news – GhostBSD, OpenBSD, OpenSSH, plus plenty more. Make sure to check the Beastie Bits at the bottom of the page.
BSDNow 269, along with convention reports and other items, covers something I never expected: System V daemons on BSD.
This week’s BSDNow has a lot of “You will not regret knowing this” material – ZFS performance measurement, 2FA SSH, and using Netcat in various ways.
BSDNow 267 is posted a bit early this week, with an interview of Michael W. Lucas, about his upcoming Absolute FreeBSD 3rd edition and local BUG.
BSDNow 266 is up, and while the title is “File Type History”, there’s a number of “this is how I use BSD” stories on there, which I always find interesting.
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.
BSDNow 264 is available now and has the usual roundup of news, including discussion of Threadripper performance that I’ve avoided.
BSDNow manages to hit a majority of the BSDs this week, talking about Free/Open/Net in various ways. No interview, but lots to hear about.
This week’s BSDNow covers a few things I haven’t seen yet – a news update from the FreeBSD Foundation, and a status report on Project Trident.
Still haven’t cleared my backlog of links…
- “DISABLE HYPERTHREADING ON ALL YOUR INTEL MACHINES IN THE BIOS.” You should not be surprised by this. (via)
- X11 on really small devices. There’s video, though it’s a .mov file and so could also be on YouTube.
- mandoc-1.14.4 released.
- NetBSD machines at Open Source Conference 2018 Kyoto. (via)
- Modern-day package requirements. I could have sworn I linked to this before.
- Michael MacInnis: Oh a new Unix shell – BSDCan 2018. Video, also probably mentioned indirectly before, but now there’s comments.
- unbound-adblock. “The ultimate network adblocker!” (via)
- OpenBSD on an iBook G4. (via)
- Netgate SG-1000. Runs pfSense; haven’t tried it but I like it just cause it’s tiny.
- PICO-8 works on OpenBSD using iridium browser. (via)
- People who run BSD: A series of BSD user interviews. I wish this kept going. (via)
- Valuable News for 2018/08/11 and 2018/08/18.
- Michael W. Lucas on IT the to D.
- End of life for NetBSD 6.x.
BSDNow 259 is out, and I happen to have just come off a 10-hour drive, so I will do nothing other than point you at the episode.
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.
