BSDTalk 243: Ingo Schwarze


It’s all multimedia day here, as BSDTalk 243 is also out with 16 minutes of conversation with Ingo Schwarze about mandoc.  Mandoc is the man replacement in OpenBSD and built-but-not-yet-used in DragonFly.  ‘man replacement’ is probably an oversimplification.

BSDNow 046: Network Iodometry


BSDNow 046 interviews Brian Drewery, talks about tunneling through DNS ports (an useful trick to get around network paywalls, if it’s what I think it is), and of course more general discussion of BSD topics.

BSDNow 045: ZFS War Stories


BSDNow episode 45 is up.  This one is an interview with Josh Paetzel of iXSystems.  No tutorial this week because Allan Jude is at the devsummit in the UK, an event I totally did not know existed.

BSDTalk 239: Baptiste Daroussin


BSDTalk 239 is 55 minutes of talk with Baptiste Daroussin at vBSDCon 2013 about ‘pkgng’ on FreeBSD.  The BSDTalk post doesn’t mention it, but it is the same pkg tool that DragonFly uses, so Baptiste’s plans are relevant to DragonFly too.  (I haven’t had a chance to listen to the podcast yet so I don’t know how much he talks about DragonFly, specifically.)

BSDNow 030: Documentation is King


BSDNow episode 030 is out with an interview of Warren Block about FreeBSD documentation, along with a conversation on a number of other topics, including setting up a BSD machine as your access point (highly recommended, along with home router setup) and setting up a BSD (FreeNAS) as a Synology replacement.  They also totally scooped me on Michael W. Lucas giving an OpenBSD talk – which might be because I forgot to sign up for his announcement mailing list.

BSDNow vs. BSDTalk

BSDNow 18, first of the new year, is up.  Among other things, it mentions my crazy ‘OpenPF’ idea, and there’s an interview with Baptiste Daroussin.  He’s one of the people working on pkg, so whatever he does there affects both FreeBSD and DragonFly.

BSDNow 16: Cryptocrystalline


As you can kinda sorta guess from the show title, BSDNow 16 is about encryption.

One of the things noted there that I hadn’t heard of is that FreeBSD ports is getting a ‘stable’ branch for the first time – I suppose I need to read even more mailing lists.

BSD Magazine: FreeNAS FreeNAS FreeNAS


The April 2013 issue of BSD Magazine is all about FreeNAS.  I mean, every article is FreeNAS related.  If you’re curious about the product, this is the place to start.  (The magazine is also now available in ePub format in addition to PDF.)

Does FreeNAS count as another BSD flavor, rather than an appliance?  I’m not sure.
