I’m a bit late because of travel, but you still should see the latest BSD Now; the CHERI system is interesting and underappreciated.
I’m preposting this, so hopefully it is still accurate: SEMIBUG has a menu of lightning talks tonight. It’s online.
I managed to avoid a dominant theme this week. On purpose! I think it means a better summary.
The last link has some interesting applications to try.
This week’s BSD Now has a bunch of how-to-do-this links, as you might guess from the headline.
Predrag Punosevac has some notes on how he cleaned up some HAMMER drives and freed up half his disk space.
Some cranky links, some fun links.
Unrelated game of the week: Hexagonal Pipes.
Some useful tips hidden in there this week.
This week’s BSD Now takes its title from one of the links talking about how cat(1) works, which reminds me of this article about how the very original implementation of grep was crazy fast.
There’s an unofficial NYCBUG meetup, tomorrow at 6:45PM. Go, if you are near New York City.
No mini-theme this week, just a mix.
The lead link in this week’s BSD Now is the sort of thing I like to link to: debugging Lisp in space. There’s more than that.
This will matter most to you if your connection to the Internet is poor: fetch(1) now will time out on data transfers too.
I mentioned a new committer for DragonFly, Sergey Zigachev, recently. He hasn’t shown in the commit logs for DragonFly directly – cause he’s fixing up dports. I’m mentioning that because the amount of work that goes into dports to keep all those ports working on DragonFly is separate and unseen – but necessary.
BSD Now 464 is out for the week, and has the normal roundup. Nothing unusual to point out, just good reading.
SEMIBUG is having a presentation on Jupyter notebooks tonight, online. The presenter is using them for genome sequencing, so this should the interesting.
