Interesting observations while poking around again today, unveil(2) and pledge(2) are separate, yet complimentary features, you can use unveil(2) without using pledge(2). This was confirmed by bob_beck@ on Twitter.

Another thing, while not presently documented, is the possibly to once again "veil" previously unveiled filesystem points, by using an empty string as the flags argument. This appears to be intended for some complex use case, but still very cool.

Now in manuals :

unveil(2) β€” unveil parts of a restricted filesystem view

Sitting on some awesome #opencvs diffs that are running on anoncvs.cvshub.org.

If you want to help me test, co your repos from that anoncvs mirror and start using the opencvs client on your openbsd machines.

There should be a global 'awareness' week for developers. For a week reduce your RAM to 2 GB, disable all cores except 2, downscale your resolution to 1366x768 and cap your internet at 1 Mbps (or less for mobile developers)...

Maybe, just maybe we will start to have less crappy, bloated software.

Buy the Linux Geek @Humble bundle from @nostarch humblebundle.com/books/linux-g - Support the @eff and get lots of good summer reading including the Book of PF (still very much a BSD book, strongly leaning towards but also , )

I'm no longer so easily winded by a flight of stairs. Well, any reasonable amount.. like maybe 5. ☺️

*Boycotting Prime Day for reasons obviously other than being broke, and not having Prime.* :blobpeek:

Simply pursuing through the initial set of userland diffs as I wake up, the semantics of this interface and its usage feels sooo right. ☺️

I simply cannot decide if I like Marvel's Cloak & Dagger or not, story feels soo slow.. but I keep watching it anyway. 🀷

RT @bob_beck@twitter.com I just watched robert@ pull up videos and install extensions in a chrome with all the processes using my latest unveil(2) diff. This pleases me after a four day slog at this hackathon.

I hate to beat the same old drum, but any support would really help me out immensely. I've been living month to month. Many heartfelt thanks to those who have setup recurring donations! :blobaww:
