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 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.
The 44th BSDNow episode is out, with an interview of Craig Rodrigues, a tutorial on creating pre-patched OpenBSD ISOs, and the usual discussion of news items, including DragonFly’s recent pf changes.
(I don’t get the pun in the title this time, darnit.)
BSDNow 043 talks with Marc Espie of OpenBSD about packaging, goes through updating your BSD system (all of them? I haven’t watched yet), and discusses a number of other links.
BSDNow’s 42nd video is up, with an interview of Bryce Chidester and a tutorial on chaining SSH connections.
BSDNow 041 is out with an interview of Benedict Reuschling, along with a lot of news discussion and some interesting NAS notes. Hey, I’m mentioned!
BSDTalk 242 has 17 minutes of conversation with Chris Buechler (of pfSense fame), recorded at BSDCan 2014.
BSDNow episode 039 is up, with an interview of Jon Anderson about capsicum and casperd, a tutorial about encrypting DNS traffic, and a slew of other links including ones to the recent BSDCan event presentations.
The May BSD Magazine is out, and Siju George has written an article about using Hammer on DragonFly. It’s a free download to read.
I missed this last week: BSDNow episode 36 is out with an interview of David Chisnall of FreeBSD, plus a RAID tutorial, and other stuff as always.
BSDTalk 240 is 35 minutes with George Neville-Neil talking about NTP and the precision time protocol.
BSDNow 034 is about Network Attached Storage – specifically with an interview of John Hixson at iXSystems about FreeNAS development.
The March issue of BSD Magazine is out, and this month has an article written by Siju George about how his company is using DragonFly and Hammer for backups.
I should have seen that pun coming a long time ago. BSDNow 032 is up with an interview of Dru Lavigne and the usual assortment of other recent BSD items.
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 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 episode 029 is up containing a full slate of material. There’s an interview of Gleb Kurtsou, along with a PEFS tutorial and several other items that are new to me.
Uh oh, I don’t get the pun this time. Anyway, the newest BSDNow episode is an interview with Eric Turgeon of GhostBSD,
and a disk concatenation tutorial for NetBSD and a tutorial that isn’t uploaded yet. (Wait, now I get it.)
I am late posting this: the most recent episode of BSDNow has, along with the regular array of items, an interview of Chris Buechler, of the commercial support company behind pfSense.
For BSDTalk 238, Will Backman has recordings from NYCBSDCon 2014. I think I’m in there, even though I haven’t listened to it yet.
Episode 023 of BSDNow is up, with an interview of Ted Unangst about the new signing mechanism in OpenBSD, a NTP server tutorial, and of course more.
BSDNow episode 19 is up, titled “The Installfest“. They install DragonFly along with other BSDs, and I haven’t even looked at it yet.
BSDNow has a new episode for Christmas; this contains an interview with Scott Long of (among other things) Netflix.
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.
BSDNow episode 15 keeps the pun titles going. Josh Paetzel is apparently replaced by Santa Claus in the interview? There’s also FreeNAS coverage, and lots else.
BSDNow episode 14 is up – and actually has been for a few days; I’ve been on the road. There’s an interview with George Wilson about OpenZFS and a bunch more stuff I haven’t had a chance to watch yet. (see previous note about being on the road.)
BSDNow 13 is out, and it includes an interview with Jordan Hubbard of ports/Apple/iXSystems fame. They also continue the ‘Building an OpenBSD router’ project, and of course, there’s more.
BSDNow 12, which I haven’t had a chance to watch yet, has the normal roundup of events and an interview with Amitai Schlair of NetBSD. There’s also a tutorial about ssh and tmux.
BSDTalk 235 has 26 minutes of conversation with Allan Jude about various topics, including this BSDNow thing I was just on,
BSDNow episode 11 is up, with conversations about OpenSSH, FUSE, building an OpenBSD router, etc… and a whole hour of me talking about the upcoming DragonFly 3.6 release and this very Digest, too!
The 10th BSDNow episode is out, with the ambitious title, “Year of the BSD Desktop”. As you can guess from the title, a PC-BSD desktop gets set up as part of the episode, and as you might not guess from the title, they interview Michael W. Lucas.
BSDNow 9 is up and it’s all Current Events, going by the title. I’d describe it better but I haven’t even had a chance to watch it yet.
BSDNow has Episode 8 out, containing an interview with Antti Kantee, a number of BSD news items (including some I missed entirely), and if you couldn’t tell from the purposefully misspelled title, a conversation about Tor and BSD.
BSDNow episode 7 is out, with jails as a feature among a number of topics.
I’m a bit slow in posting this, but: BSDNow episode 6 is out. Theo de Raadt is interviewed, and a lot of other topics (including DragonFly) are visited. The page listing shows all the areas covered, plus the embedded video itself.
BSDTalk 232 is 15 minutes of conversation with Thomas Cort about “Minix, NetBSD, and Summer of Code”.
The BSDNow video series put out another episode already: Stacks of Cache. I didn’t realize this before, but they broadcast their episodes live as they are done on Wednesdays at 18:00 UTC.
The July issue of BSD Magazine is out, and the listed theme is “Security and Cryptography”, but there’s plenty else.
The June 2013 issue of BSD Magazine is out, and the focus is Ruby. The PDF is free if you tell them your email address.
There’s a new BSDTalk by way of the recently-completed BSDCan 2013 event, and it’s half an hour of talk with Matt Ahrens about ZFS and matters related.
The May issue of BSD Magazine is out with a number of pf articles, plus others.
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.
BSDTalk 244 is Marshall Kirk McKusick and George Neville-Neil talking about the FreeBSD Foundation, for a generous half-hour.
The February 2013 issue of BSD Magazine, available as a free PDF, talks about VAX/VMS ‘rehosting’, has a PC-BSD preview, and other things. The teaser paragraph for the “Fear, Loathing and Misunderstandings” article (shown on that linked page) is perfect.
Will Backman has a new BSDTalk episode up, with a bit of Peter Salus from BSDCan 2011 and a bit of Raspberry Pi on FreeBSD.
We need more fiddling-with-BSD-on-hardware stuff out there. That would be a good thing for Youtube – hint, hint.
January’s issue of BSD Magazine has something I didn’t expect: an article on panoramic photography on BSD – among other material.
Right in time for the end of the year, BSDTalk 221 is out, with Michael Dexter interviewing Matthieu Herrb at EuroBSDCon 2012 for 11 minutes about Xenocara.
BSD Magazine for December is out, offering the usual mix of articles in a free PDF. There’s several Postgres articles in this one.
BSDTalk 220 is up. It’s a conversation with Eric Oyen, OpenBSD user. It’s about 20 minutes and I don’t know the subject past “OpenBSD” cause I haven’t listened to it – yet.
I’m glad 3.2 is out the door. I think I spent more time on release notes and watching package builds than any other release.
- This in-browser recreation of an Apple ][+ is a trip down nostalgia lane. (via)
- HappyEdit, “Vim-based” text editor. It’s actually an IndieGoGo project. (via)
- A physics paper with a description of a non-Euclidean universe, which happens to mention Cthulu. (via)
- NetBSD now supports these 100-core Tile-GX processors; I didn’t know such hardware existed. (Thanks, Tomas Bodzar)
- Active vs. Passive Benchmarking. (Tomas again.)
- The Search for the Ultimate Engineer’s Pen. I like looking at some of the pen models mentioned. The best way to find the “ultimate” pen, that nobody mentioned: go into a good art store and ask to sample a few pens. Bring the type of paper you normally use. Pens are usually out loose, and having it in your hand is the best way to tell. If there’s a college near you with a good technical art program, check the campus store. Why, yes, I did base that example on direct experience.
- The evolution of the computer keyboard. The descriptions of the various mechanisms are neat to hear about. It of course repeats the Dvorak story. (via)
- All the back issues of science fiction magazine Omni, online and free.
Your unrelated link of the day: Sir, You Are Being Hunted. I link to the Kickstarter for this game for no other reason than I think it would be fun to play.
The free download of the October issue of BSD Magazine is available. The theme this month is security, though of course there’s more covered.
The September issue of BSD Magazine is out, as a free PDF as usual. Visit the site to find out the table of contents.
David Gwynne talks for 31 minutes about OpenBSD on BSDTalk 219. Also, Will Backman, the host of BSDTalk is heading to Tbilisi, Georgia next month. Say ‘hi’ if you’re a Georgian.
