Following this commit https://marc.info/?l=openbsd-cvs&m=162562554228908&w=2 (the DRM 5.10 update), a simple sysupgrade was all that was needed for the machine from https://bsdly.blogspot.com/2021/07/the-impending-doom-of-your-operating.html to just work with the latest #OpenBSD snapshot. Thanks again to jsg@ and all #OpenBSD developers!
The Impending Doom of Your Operating System Going to or Past 11, Versus the Lush Oasis of Open Source Systems https://bsdly.blogspot.com/2021/07/the-impending-doom-of-your-operating.html TL;DR: #Opensource, specifically #OpenBSD is good for you, also featuring bit players #Linux, #Windows11, #macOS, #microsoft, #apple
I submit 184.108.40.206, yet another bot whose herders switched the usernames and the passwords around and hilarity ensued

Progress in support for the riscv64 platform https://undeadly.org/cgi?action=article;sid=20210619161607 #openbsd #riscv64
Discovering that two high profile Windows security offerings can not co-exist on the same system because they both depend on (and supply, writing to a system directory of course) a library that's officially abandonware and whose authors recommend strongly against using due to non-mitigatable exploitability.
How is your morning going?
The main lesson learned today was, even in the face of corrupt firmware files, #openbsd behaves fairly sanely. With a few other things to sort before midnight there was no way do the writeup right away, but now it is possible to finish it.
If you're quite quick about it, you can make the 2021-05-26 submissions deadline for #eurobsdcon 2021, all-online this year.
Check out our CFP at https://2021.eurobsdcon.org/about/cfp/, click onwards to the submission+registration site.
See you online and hopefully in person next year!
The state of toolchains in OpenBSD https://undeadly.org/cgi?action=article;sid=20210520073003 #openbsd
For the second time in a week I have been contacted about removals from the bsdly.net traplist for addresses that are not currently in it (and in one case no trace in the last two years). So I added a sentence to the Summing up part at https://www.bsdly.net/~peter/traplist_ethics.shtml.
I was reminded, forgot and then remembered again that the 20th anniversary of our #RFC1149 implementation flew by without anybody noticing. Here's my piece from the 10th anniversary: https://bsdly.blogspot.com/2011/04/rfc1149-ten-years-of-in-flight-internet.html #pigeon #internet #tcpip
