I'm excited when my cat does new interesting things like a parent is when it's their child.. 😺
New FAQ showing off the fuzzy matching in #OpenBSD's pkg_* tools: https://www.openbsd.org/faq/faq15.html#PkgDup https://marc.info/?l=openbsd-cvs&m=150869609614677&w=2
Interesting technique by Todd Mortimer to reduce the number of gadgets on x86 even further: https://marc.info/?l=openbsd-tech&m=150869222214001&w=2 #OpenBSD #clang
I finally just realized you can "Pin" new columns on Mastodon, keeping searches open like Tweetdeck. It's still not great though..

"Mailed you a diff, please sit on it for 3 or 4 months while I pass it around to various government and private institutions."

Tedu on HN: “A bunch of dudes on a linux mailing list lack the authority to prevent OpenBSD from fixing things.”
As #OpenBSD's de-facto wifi maintainer, I first learned about this WPA problem in June. A simple patch was provided which I could commit with slight modifications.
The original embargo was already 2 months long, and then extended again for 2 months.
The generall public (you) were left in the dark about this for at least 4 months.
This is a very sad state of affairs. It takes the industry much too long to apply a simple patch.
