First: hats off to gman999 for his incessant efforts in getting the content of this site in better shape. I especially applaud this low-tech/no-tech blog layout in MultiMarkdown.

I have been noticeably lacking but not totally idle. I’ve had to take some paying work which has slowed me down on open source but my path forward is fairly clear. My main task is to rework the makefiles mainly the stuff in that comprise the OpenBSD ports for TBB so that they dovetail with and use as much as possible of the Mozillan infrastructure already in the OpenBSD ports tree much of it due to landry who has already helped me a couple of times. I should’ve done this from the beginning but my head wasn’t really on straight when I first started this. I’ve been reticent about touching anything that I didn’t write choosing instead to adapt what others have done to get something working. Although this was perhaps effective in the short term if we want this in the tree it has to be consonant with it… in short: if you’re serious about contributing to OpenBSD then pick up a shovel and start digging but politely.

The BSDCan 2 16 call for papers was issued yesterday and a TDP-related submission was made. BSDCan is likely the largest BSD gathering globally and an excellent opportunity to speak to BSD developers and users.

EuroBSDCon 2 16 is tentatively slated for September 2 16 in Belgrade Serbia. It is another significant BSD event attracting users and developers from Europe and beyond. At a glance there are only two Tor relays in Serbia and both are Linux. Beyond Serbia there are few Tor relays in the Balkan states overall making EuroBSDCon 2 16 a great opportunity to extend not just BSD Tor relays but any Tor relays. … read more
