I'm going to do an upgrade of the host the bsd.network instance is on. Estimating 30-60 min of downtime.
I just committed this to #OpenBSD -current:
Back in the history of time, IPv4 had classes of addresses. This was widely acknowledged as a failure. At the same time IPv4 classes were declared a
failure, #IPv6 decided to add
them back because using a mac address for IP address configuration was easy.
Now that we have RFC7217 support we can remove this artificial limitation: allow non-/64 prefixes to be configured by SLAAC.

Hey BSD folk. Looks like our good friend Peter Hansteen (@pitrh) is in the market. Now's a great time to hire a great guy, pf expert, mail guru and real Unix systems admin. https://twitter.com/akpoff/status/951215465879261186

"""Realized last night that the original embargo for the Meltdown/Spectre bugs, which was today, had to be chosen so Intel CEO Brian Krzanich could give his CES keynote last night without having to discuss them."""
Words for the day:
Complex: inherently tricky. Heart surgery and rocket launches are complex; you have to get a lot of things right or none of it works. Antonym: simple.
Complicated: made needlessly baroque. A Rube Goldberg machine is a complicated solution to a simple problem. Antonym: elegant.
The hardest part of senior engineering is finding the elegant solution to complex problems. Anyone can find a complicated solution.
Apparently the VMware afd service failed to start, or started and immediately stopped, and it's the service every other vmware service depends on. So Windows just failed on starting almost every aspect of VMware center and gave up.
Let's all say it together: "My industry is a cesspool."
