News 490: New Year’s Plan9’ing: FreeBSD Foundation’s Software Development review of 2022, what can we learn from Vintage Computing, OpenBSD KDE Status Report 2022, a Decade of HardenedBSD, In Praise of Plan9, and more. Tutorials Automation and Hacking Your FreeBSD CLI: The more we automate, the more we can save time and boost our productivity to higher levels. In this article we plan on looking at how to build more human-readable outputs in FreeBSD by leveraging tools like libxo to drive better output for automation APIs. OpenZFS – Data Security vs. Integrity: Data security is about preventing data from being disclosed, ensuring that only the correct people can access it. Data integrity ensures the data is correct, that it has not become corrupt due to hardware failure or other issues. With ZFS, you can get both.

There are email providers who will block email from brand new domain names, and perhaps others will consider it spam, and maybe only consider it spam for the very first email contact between your instance and their email server. Your results may be better within a few weeks time.


Beginning in the second half of the 1970s, the world witnessed the birth and affirmation of so-called Big Tech – the five largest companies that operate in the field of information technology, which are also known today as “GAFAM” (Google, Apple, Facebook, Amazon, and Microsoft). In the roughly 50 years since then, these companies have been able to build empires of intellectual property of technologies and systems – primarily through acquisitions of other companies both small and large, which allowed them to center technological innovations within their walls. “The GAFAM Empire”, a project developed by DensityDesign Lab and Tactical Tech, collects the information of more than 1,000 acquisitions made by these companies, in order to look back on the history of the industry through the limited data publicly available on the web. The information visualizes a landscape of acquisitions to identify common interests, which are then broken down into a deep analysis of GAFAM’s history. The project visualizes the data in different shapes and through different focuses, allowing the reader to understand a complex system of relationships that is constantly evolving and that is redefining the concepts of competition and monopoly.

I like to use https://yewtu.be as landing page, because it has been around for long with no down time and it has an easy name to remember.


My experience is that using any Invidious instance in combination with yt-dlp on the command line makes downloads already work. Just saying.


News Testing wanted: execute-only on amd64: On the tech@ mailing list, Theo de Raadt (deraadt@) has issued a request for testing of patch(es) for execute-only (xonly) binaries on amd64. What kind of jobs are available with FreeBSD/OpenBSD?: Networking student wanting to know whether FreeBSD/OpenBSD knowledge is a thing that could bring them job offers. NetBSD HAMMER2: Based on the FreeBSD version, with notes: - Initial target is read-only support, but write support is also planned once read-only support is accomplished. - Tags are merely for packaging, nothing directly to do with file system version. - -CURRENT aka upstream NetBSD is the only tier 1 support branch at the moment.

Tutorials FreeBSD vs. Linux – 5 Factors When Considering FreeBSD vs Linux – Package Management: The popularity of package managers permeates all Unix distributions. Yet there are subtle differences in the approach that Linux vs. FreeBSD take in handling packages. How does Linux compare to FreeBSD's way of managing packages? We have identified key points to consider in the software lifecycle management of both in the article.

Have a look at the word pandemic on English Wikipedia, the paragraph about Current pandemics, and let’s ask ourselves why the continent of Africa is usually neglected in Western media ?

  • HIV/AIDS

AIDS is currently a pandemic in Africa, with infection rates as high as 25% in some regions of southern and eastern Africa.

There were an estimated 1.5 million new infections of HIV/AIDS in 2020. As of 2020 there have been about a total of 32.7 million deaths related to HIV/AIDS since the epidemic started.[41]


Looks nice. https://diff.blog/FAQ/

Auto follow - diff.blog automatically make you follow the blogs of developers and organizations you follow on GitHub.

Does it have RSS feed so it can be read in a feed reader ?


I feel that bad faith arguments need to be called out on sight.

Well, I can tell that I am fan of Socrates in the sense that asking questions instead of making assumptions (which you did in your comment) gives flexibility and more direction towards a good and rather balanced conversation rather than monologue versus monologue (For the latter I’m thinking about politicians in some countries who seemed to be mainly interested in their own person and their own party, rather than other people).


Indeed. diff.blog - discover and follow developer blogs would be a better title.


Because having been part of activism came with being in touch with more critical thinkers and people who already cared about their privacy in real life. Caring about privacy on the Internet was the logical next step.


If you were genuinely curious about a link between internet privacy and the pandemic, you would not ask the poster to waste everyone’s time specifying “which pandemic” we all know he was referring to.

Why the aggression and the assumption ? The question seemed sincere and harmless. There may have been more pandemics in other continents where we in the West almost never heard about.

Thanks for sharing the web links.

Trying to ping the user @lemmyreader@lemmy.ml Please tell me if that worked. :)

Worked :) And let’s ping in the original question poster as well @Amicchan@lemmy.ml just in case.

Hypericum (St. John’s Wort) pills can be bought in some regular shops here in Europe. I have a tendency to use them in the Winter, but this time it didn’t go so well. I also have it as tea, maybe I’ll give that a try again when needed. Luckily I found other ways to feel better. Odd thing about the results for German speaking countries.

Trials from German-speaking countries reported more positive findings than trials from other countries (RR = 1.78; 95%CI 1.42 to 2.25 vs.1.07; 95% CI 0.88 to 1.31, respectively; see comparison 1.5 and Figure 2).

What do these numbers mean exactly ? Was it a huge difference or not so much ?


Interesting to see this good read from March 2017 now posted on Teddit (Reddit) about 9 hours ago : https://teddit.net/r/linux/comments/10bpvbh/what_it_feels_like_to_be_an_opensource_maintainer/ with useful comments. Nice one, Lemmy! Is Lemmy gaining traction ?


Interesting that you mention St.Johns Wort, it is something which I used from time to time, and I like that it is natural with minimal side effects. (I’ve been told that women should be very careful with this as it conflict with some contraceptives).


Yes, sad. “power corrupts” applies. But I’d say usually it is good to not place your bet only on national politics. Watching the local community politics instead and do “direct action” or consumer behavior change (which may include for example small things like eating less meat, not buying from big brands which produce non sustainable products, or slightly adjusting some bus stop billboard ad) makes sense.


I think we are on the bring of a big collapse.

I think the collapse has been there for decades already. Maybe it was not so visible among humans but I imagine that animals and nature have felt it clearly already. Whether to blame the amount of pills made and given, is because of capitalism or neoliberalism I’m not sure. I have read Not Made of Wood: A Psychiatrist Discovers His Own Profession by Jan Foudraine, a book which became popular in the seventies and has helped to make mental help better than it was before, however lately the lack of time for patients, and the work pressure have made giving pills very popular. Not just doctors and psychiatrists give pills but also psychologists started to do so :( There is still hope, for example the resistance of Lützerath is Germany shows imo that not all of us have turned into mindless money greed capitalist robots.




This year end episode of BSDNow features a trip report to EuroBSDcon by Mr. BSD.tv, as well as an interview with FreeBSD committer John Baldwin. Happy New Year, 2023!

carbonOS 2022.3 Release!
What is carbonOS? carbonOS is an independent Linux distribution that focuses on UX and robust system design more than it does on compatibility with Linux tradition. It is an atomic distribution, which means that OS updates are always safe. The system’s layout ensures the integrity of system files. Unlike other atomic distros, carbonOS does not attempt to keep around traditional package management features: carbonOS is Flatpak-first for your apps and container-first for everything else. This will allow carbonOS to achieve unique features, like Verified/Secure Boot. carbonOS’s end goal is to be a distro that uses Linux’s unique capabilities to provide a secure, stable, and robust environment for users’ apps and work. I want it to be a general-purpose OS that the user doesn’t have to think about. Users should be able to game on it, work on it, program on it, and do whatever else they want without ever having to worry about the technical details of their operating system. Basically, I’d love to fulfill the “GnomeBook” dream: an OS as maintenance-free as Chrome OS, but as powerful as a real desktop OS and all without compromising the users’ ultimate freedom over their hardware.
