I want a list of all the children of a filesystem. I'm using:

$ zfs list -Hr -o name -d 1 foo/bar
foo/bar
foo/bar/a
foo/bar/b

I don't want the parent in that list (i.e. foo/bar). Can `zfs list` do that?

If not, I can use grep to get rid of `foo/bar`.

The output I want is:
foo/bar/a
foo/bar/b

To initiate processing of git commits in the ports tree, the last remaining change is to this line in /usr/local/etc/freshports.org/config.sh:

REPOS_TO_CHECK_GIT="doc src"

But first, I have this bagel in front of me.

I'll work on configuring FreshPorts for the new git ports tree at about 1600 UTC. Lunch time.

Updating an existing mosquitto installation from 1.x to 2.x?

There are changes to pid file, certificate, and configuration file permissions.

You wanna know how we get what we want? We start voting the republicans out so things shift to the left and the democrats gotta fall in line so they get re-elected

Yeah, I know we didn't get the $2000 check but look at all the things we DID get.

• stimulus checks going to people on SSI and SSDI?
• increase to the child tax credit?

Democrats are not GREAT but just remember: EVERY SINGLE MEMBER OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY VOTED NO.

Today someone mentioned creating a cron job. That reminded me of:

* when thinking crontab, consider periodic
* when thinking mkdir, consider zfs create

This author does good work, very easy to follow his writing. The latest book is on TLS: mwl.io/nonfiction/networking#t

3 days later, this question

"Interesting idea. With standard newsyslog.conf on , how can you rotate a log file daily, but only if it's non-empty?"

results in a new feature:

"a new flag, 'E', that prevents newsyslog(8) from rotating the empty log files."

Friends do not let friends use btrfs. In a redundant file system, I want to at least do a mirror of my OS boot drives. If one of them dies, I want my system to continue to operate.

I'm told btrfs won't boot such a system. By design.

Please tell me this is not so.

Blog post about how to register a package without installing the package, thus preventing the package from being installed.

What?

Imagine you have a dev system, and you want to avoid accidentally installing the package for the code you are working on.

After an afternoon of volunteering (thanks $WORK) at a vaccination clinic, what better way to unwind than updating those last two hosts in the ?

Sometimes I ignore this laptop for long periods of time & I only become aware of that on sunny days.
