I've created a based reimplementation of (from ).

Long story short, this utility allows you to use your editor in a pipeline (e.g., fetch -o - man.freebsd.org/beinstall.sh | vipe.sh | nc termbin.com 9999).

Let me know if there is something you would improve.


If you have an mobile device (like or ) please help us with reviewing/testing the tutorial we are adding to the manual page:


@xanderio, let's add a .desktop file for so that it could be started from a display manager (e.g., svnweb.freebsd.org/ports/head/)

I am not sure though if it should live in the upsteam repo or the tree.

Another day of work with my #FreeBSD workstation. We have been trusty companions for a couple of years now. Thanks to the work of people like @zeising who are working on the graphics stack things have improved so much. So a big shout-out, to everyone who is making FreeBSD such a fun experience on the desktop 😺

Calling all community members! We want to hear from you. There's still time to fill out the FreeBSD Community Survey. Help shape the future of the Project, and please spread the word. Survey Deadline: May 13 at midnight UTC. research.net/r/freebsd2019

Call for testing: FreeBSD Package Base. These are stock FreeBSD images which will allow users to perform all updating via the 'pkg' command directly. lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/fr

Let's see if enabling with gfx.webrender.enabled in #66 on improves performance.

Thanks to: @debdrup

I have just released #hikari 0.0.1, my #cwm inspired window manager (now including documentation and a cleaned up repository). Get the code at my #darcs repository (you don't need darcs, you can download a zip if you want to). Currently only supports #FreeBSD and #OpenBSD. #Unix #BSD hub.darcs.net/raichoo/hikari

Dear #FreeBSD folks!

People of the @bsdstammtisch in Vienna are working on maintaining the @matrix Python-Synapse package and we're running into a LOT of outdated Python packages which we depend upon.

If you're maintaining a Python package for FreeBSD, PLEASE update it!

Thanks, your help is very much appreciated!

Calling all admins of instances in the . The is coming, we need to show the MEPs how massively the EU Internets will be affected.

We are preparing a list of all EU-based , , , , , and any other instances.

Please *contact me*. All I need is the domain name, which EU Member State it's located in, and the rough topic of the instance. Approximate user count welcome, but not necessary.

Please help. This is important.

Really enjoyed Benno Rice talking about "The Tragedy of SystemD". The part about "the culture of contempt" in programming communities really struck a nerve since I've been guilty of acting like that more often than I would like. I'm still working on that. #FreeBSD #BSD #SystemD #Linux youtube.com/watch?v=o_AIw9bGog

TIL: It looks like #valgrind can't be trusted that much. Had it running for hours on #hikari and it didn't report anything. #dtrace however found something fishy right away. Gotta love developing under #FreeBSD ❀️
