1. Upgrade is optional. You can do it any time. The previous version is still solid.

3. Upgrade is easy and predictable. Everything is under your control. All changes are well documented.

Update: The MacBook overheated and shut down, so I spun up a VM on my Thinkpad and built the kernel there. With the freshly built kernel, wifi works and battery life seems to be about 2.5-3.5 hours. Proprietary NVIDIA drivers are working.

I've in two days and I'm spending my evening building a custom kernel for an almost decade old macbook air.

One of these days I should probably start rethinking my priorities.

Wow, cross-compiling with xbps is so nice. Took me barely any time at all to get master (with persist support) built for my .

Truth is simply an excuse for a lack of imagination.

Amazing work by beck@ & robert@, further refining #OpenBSD unveil(2) semantics, working to remove an early hack that was required to proceed early on, especially with gnarly beasts like chrome. 👍

We just donated €240 to the #OpenBSD Foundation, totaling €2300 so far.

We added 24 VMs in January. 35 more available on server7.

Thank you all!

Bizarrely enough, a philosophy talk I attended on tuesday has helped me resolved some issues with a short story that's been brewing in the back of my mind for the better part of two years now. It's partially set in an infinite dimensional Hilbert space—hence the issues.

Have had to abandon on my main machine for a little while (doing some machine learning, and python+julia+jupyter works far better on Linux). Decided to go with Linux and a full DE instead of a WM for a little while. Turns out is pretty nice these days.
