A reminder: NYCBUG is having an installfest tomorrow night, at 6:45 PM, at Stone Creek. Even if you’ve already installed a BSD on every bit of hardware you have, it’s still a good time.
The first link will bring you a lot more reading. How Mobile Carriers Skirt Net-Neutrality Rules. From a collection of interesting writing by Ingrid Burrington.

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. The Developer Formerly Known as FreeBSDGirl. (via) Plotting Out the BSD Year. (via or via) BSD: A Brief Look Back at 2015. OpenBSD Jumpstart. (via) Can it run […]

Christmas doesn’t stop BSDNow from happening, and this week – along with the normal news summary – has an interview with Trent Thompson about virtualization on FreeBSD. Specifically, iohyve, the new management system. (Linking directly to the broadcast site instead of the page with the full summary on the BSDNow site, because that summary page isn’t […]
A number of people have reported problems with qemu and DragonFly, both running locally and on a host. It turns out to be a problem with the getcontext(), setcontext(), and swapcontext() functions, but Matthew Dillon fixed it in a way that doesn’t affect performance very much. That apparently wasn’t good enough, so he added _quick versions […]
Yet another week that I started 2 weeks ago; this end-of-calendar-year is full of BSD goings-on. FreeBSD on the desktop? Am I crazy? (via) lists.freebsd.org holy jeebus…. I am a newbie trying to switch from pfSense to OpenBSD. How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love The Windows Operating System Family. (via) You Make FreeBSD […]
The DragonFly installer has been modified to produce disk arrangements that will generally match between UFS and Hammer installs, plus directories where you usually don’t want Hammer history or backups (like /tmp or /usr/obj) are now under /build and null-mounted to where you’d expect, since null-mounting works transparently well on DragonFly. Matthew Dillon has a […]
The official title for BSDNow 120 is “I’m talking about the man in the middle” which is too long for an article title here. It’s a Michael Jackson reference and a type of attack against encryption, if you are unclear. Anyway, the episode has the usual news roundup and an interview of Pawel Jakub Dawidek.
