my #bsdstart was installing NetBSD on a friend's dreamcast 😂 i had no idea what it was or how it worked and we quickly stopped after it booted...
coming from the linux world (first contact was mandrake in school) i set up my first FreeBSD installation on an old pc i had at home in 2005 i think. used it as a fileserver forever until i finally moved to OpenBSD with 5.3 in the summer of 2013 and added DNS and DHCP 😀
Whoever thought auto playing videos in a browser was such a great idea should never be involved in browser development.
I made a quick shell script to download the Spamhaus DROP list and create a block list for pf
The Spamhaus lists are really helpful if you're running a mail server
I'm using this on #OpenBSD. You can probably run this weekly via cron
Remember to reload pf after generating this list
Who on here has any experience with the Tilera TILE platform? I have two TILEncore-Gx36 cards that I'm looking to "play" with and would appreciate having someone to (occasionally & thoughtfully) ping about them.
BLOCK 👏🏻 ALL 👏🏻 THE 👏🏻 ADS
Seriously. Install uBlock Origin and never disable it for anyone until the ad industry shapes up.
okay so it's #introduction time? hey there. #openbsd user since 5.0 and mainly #freebsd and #linux before that. my work is mainly oracle enterprise software (*slow clap*) and databases on windows, linux, system i and aix hosts. a security nightmare so i only do that in my free time and at home. also began c programming a few weeks ago and love it!
'Include hostname in shell prompts by default' has been the best fucking thing of late. Can't wait until it hits release for all of my edge devices! I'm certain it's saved me HOURS of time by not `uname -a`ing all the goddamned time! I'm still befuddled by the args against it!
Hey BSD folk. Looks like our good friend Peter Hansteen (@pitrh) is in the market. Now's a great time to hire a great guy, pf expert, mail guru and real Unix systems admin. https://twitter.com/akpoff/status/951215465879261186
