Lots of vBSDCon registrations today. Last day of early bird for $100.

Still time to get in.

Today is the last day of Early Bird registration at $100 for vBSDCon 2019, in Reston VA, Sep 5-7

registration: vbsdcon.com/registration

schedule: vbsdcon.com/schedule/

Do you use multiple workstations / laptops? Do you want some stuff synced between those devices?

I use syncthing for that. It is peer-to-peer, no 3rd parties involved. It is secure. it is fast. It is reliable.

Got laptops / workstations not always online all at the same time? Install syncthing in a VM or server.

See syncthing.net

Do I know someone who has already signed an Eclipse Contributor Agreement (ECA) with the Eclipse Foundation?

For a one letter change to a man page, I don't want to do that paperwork.

@jpmens I have a crazy idea.

Can I use curl/wget/fetch with authentication to throw something into a mqtt instance?

I am searching on: mosquitto curl 8883

... and failing to locate useful examples.

If subversion on FreeBSD is no longer working with Kerberos auth, change your port config options.

With a recent commit to www/serf, the option for using Kerberos changed.

It was: HEIMDAL_BASE

It is now: GSSAPI_BASE

svnweb.freebsd.org/ports/head/

So far so good.

I also had a supervisord config file ready to go, but abandoned that in favor of using daemon in the rc.d file.

I am happy to present your vBSDCon 2019 speakers: vbsdcon.com/speakers

Schedule soon.

@jpmens What I don't see yet: how to take the database entries and view it on maps.

Hey @jpmens I was reading Owntracks documentation last night.

I already have a mqtt instance sitting on a public-facing server, but with no public-IP address.

I am sure it just bridges to my main mqtt at home, hidden away in the basement. mqttwarn runs there

I think to implement Owntracks using the first mqtt server, all I need to do is:

* open it up to public acccess
* add in some auth for my phone
* add in some rules to mqttwarn to dump the stuff into a db
* configure the phone app
*profit

vBSDCon 2019 has a list of talks. My goal this weekend is to get that list published.

vBSDCon 2019 registration is now open: (link: vbsdcon.com/registration) vbsdcon.com/registration

Wait... what about the schedule? What talks will we see?

That should be ready this week. But don't let that stop you. Register and get the early-bird rate. It goes up soon. See URL for details.

Please retoot.

Over the weekend, I updated a zpool mirror. I replaced two existing HDD with two new HDD. The first 'zpool replace' took 5 hours. The second took 3 hours. Faster drives?

I think so.

vBSDCon CFP closes today. You have roughly until it's the 20th everywhere to submit your talk proposal.

Apart from scponly, what tools/options do you use for restricting incoming ssh to scp only?

I want writes restricted to one directory only (via authorized_keys) and no reading of files from the server.

Yes, we'll be using passphrase-less ssh-keys for this, & many restrictions.

The user's home directory will not be writable by that user. Instead, only /usr/local/dump/foo will be writable by user food, for example.
