Still lots of BSD stuff happening.
Still playing catchup with links.
Lots of event notices in here… Watch for what’s near you.
- The next KnoxBUG meeting is September 5th, with a Trident demo. I’ll post a reminder.
- OpenBSD.Amsterdam. Dedicated OpenBSD/vmd servers, which is a neat idea. Could probably do the same thing with vkernels.
- MeetBSD is happening October 19-20 in Santa Clara, CA. (via)
- Configuring OpenBSD – System and user config files for a more pleasant laptop. Not all of it is OpenBSD-specific. (via)
- Happy Bob’s Libtls tutorial. Also not wholly OpenBSD-specific; more libressl-specific. (via)
- AsiaBSDCon 2019 is happening March 21-24, Tokyo, Japan. (via)
- Ravenports now on gcc 8.2.
- Recent freebsd-jobs posts.
- [talk] ARM – any Tier-1 *BSD options? Nice support work from Netgate.
- libfuzzer, parts 1, 2, and 3 – a Summer of Code project for NetBSD. I linked the first one before, but hadn’t followed up until now. (via)
- OpenBSD, SpamPD and the Startup Bug. (also via)
- Public Access Multics. I am happy just typing that sentence.
Overflow from two weeks running, cause of travel.
Some of this is overflow from last week.
BSDCan is running this weekend. There is, depending on what time you are reading this, a livestream.
Losing power at home this week put a dent in my reading throughput, so to speak, but this will do.
The first news item about pfSense is not necessarily new, but new to me.
Done last minute on Friday, mostly.
A good variety this week.
This was an easy week for finding links.
For once, I was able to work ahead and get this done early!
All at the last minute, this.
Assembled all on Thursday!
I’ve been on the road, so this is a bit light.
Even more overflow, pushing my pre-published posts forward.
A good chunk of this is overflow from last week.
No interview in this week’s BSDNow, but lots of news topics including a note about how easy it is to mitigate WannaCry problems using BSD technologies. Also of potential interest, it links to an in-depth look at how traffic shaping in pfSense was able to significantly improve a home internet connection, from someone whose job is to think about that sort of thing.
