Lots of storage this week.
Note the end this week of pc98, the most focused of niche platforms.
Accidental theme this week: books.
There’s always a rush of links after a holiday, as people sit at home and catch up on what they’ve wanted to do.
I get all the BSDs this week.
A somewhat short week this week, for BSD.
That’s Bryan Cantrill, of Joyent, interviewed in BSDNow 163. Joyent has been a major supporter of pkgsrc, though I don’t know if many people realize that. There’s the regular news roundup too, of course.
It’s the convention time of year!
The Lumina release is the highlight of the week.
Adding a new “BUG” category, cause there’s enough ongoing BSD user group activity these days that it’s a reoccurring theme. That makes me happy.
Lots of user group items this week.
I’m hitting every type of BSD this week.
Summer convention season is coming; start scheduling!
Some DragonFly links are sneaking in here just to get them cleared out.

I apologize for ending with a question.
This time, this was all last-minute.
I hope you have some time for reading this week.
That first link is important. DragonFly, as a project, hasn’t had issues like that yet, but that’s more a side effect of it being a smaller project rather than anything else.
