So, whoami #introduction
I am working for a large German hoster/telco and heading a security team there. A fine team of skilled dudes.
I got into Linux at school (mid 90ies) and immediately loved it. My first #BSD was #OpenBSD 2.5 and I run that for a while. Over the years I experimented with #FreeBSD and finally stuck at #DragonFlyBSD where I am also a committer.
Nowadays, my business systems have to run Linux while all my personal devices run #OpenBSD. Our wireless support In Dfly sucks :/
#FreeBSD 12.0 has been released!

To the Tumblr refugees: welcome!
Having been on the Internet for over thirty years, I have one piece of advice for creative folks working online:
Control Your Platform.
Don't build a business around Facebook, Tumbler, G+, Geocities, MySpace, AltaVista, or any of these other third parties that claim to offer quick and easy results.
They all go away. Every one of them.
Build your own site. Use third parties to steer people to your site.
Third parties are the devil--useful devils, but devils.

for any new folks not sure about CWs, here are some common tags:
politics (can be triggering without warning)
nsfw / 18+ (obviously)
selfies / eye contact (can make people [especially autistic people] uncomfortable)
food (bad for people who fast)
animals (could trigger pet phobias or pet death memories)
basically anything you wouldn't want to talk to someone about in public. also, you can put a -, ~ or + to determine if the context is negative, neutral or positive

My users@ post has the details on upgrading, as do the release notes. Note there's a step in there to update initrd, which has been available for the…[...]
@stsp @florian I agree and frankly think this is downplayed: writing C using system manpages on anything but OpenBSD is painful. (And that's only documentation---not even to mention OpenBSD's functions like strlcpy, reallocarray, etc.) And it probably turns people away from C. Or worse, encourages error-prone idioms, which throws fuel on the flamewar.

It's quite nice here in the middle of nowhere. Totally quiet. You go outside and hear ... Nothing.

The CCC video operations center is no joke. Two hours after I gave my talk, it is available for download and streaming. Amazing!
Anyway, watch my talk if you're into networks and stuff.
