@sir And what proportion of those emails contain diffs?

On this day a year ago we started with a small side project to host OpenBSD VMs on OpenBSD.

We couldn't imagine the interest that followed, 283 VMs, 8 hosts dedicated to vmm(4)/vmd(8).

Thank you all! And a huge thanks to @mlarkin, @reyk and Ori Bernstein


@pea Have you tried turning it off and on again?

@pea Happens to the best of us.

Happened to me during a quantum field theory exam. Turns out I don't understand quantum field theory. Instead I get to repeat the exam mid august.

Ugh. Why didn't take over the world.
