Pinned toot
OpenBSD is very stable and working for me, pretty nice

@romanzolotarev @starbreaker agreed, everything is javascript heavy. I went back to rails recently and it's a really nice change to see a platform still embracing unobtrusive javascript by default.

Should we recommend -current or -release/-stable to new people who wants to try ?

-CURRENT = favourite this toot
-RELEASE = boost

Follow me if you are new to and want to know. ;)

Thank you!

What are some of your favourite sites that you mostly like for low resource use (not grinding your browser to a halt):

I'll start:
- lobste.rs
- undeadly.org

I'm watching my two-year-old tinker around with my PocketCHIP. He's just patiently testing each key to see what happens when he presses it.

@romanzolotarev Actually, it depends.

6.2 was released very recently so now is a good time to try -release on anything.

But -current will often have grown better hardware support if the last release was a while back, and it will have more up-to-date packages. So e.g.for laptops which have trouble with -release, I would recommend -current.

For firewalls and other systems which rarely reboot, -release is definitely better unless it does not run at all due to lack of hardware support.

@romanzolotarev interesting. Don't take this the wrong way, I also like and just upgraded my server here to 6.2 but it seems like such a small niche to do , on with ! Do you own by any chance? 😀 Of course you do!

I'm
- a web developer,
- writing on backend and frontend,
- running on (almost) all of my computers,
- fan.

To improve the security of my severs, I'm generating my own moduli file. Having a different one from others makes certain precomputed attacks more difficult.

"""
for i in 2048 3072 4096 6144 7680 8192 ; do ssh-keygen -G moduli-${i}.candidates -b $i; done

for i in 2048 3072 4096 6144 7680 8192 ; do ssh-keygen -T moduli-${i} -f moduli-${i}.candidates; done

cat moduli-???? > moduli; mv moduli /etc/moduli
"""

This will take a few days....
