@phessler @canadianbryan Yes, I had exactly the same thought and emailed Ingo at schwarze@openbsd.org. Then got the confirmation from schwarze@usta.de composed with Mutt/1.8.0 (2017-02-23) :)

I wish Ingo were on Matodon or Twitter, but seems email is still the best social network.

Got a Tor hidden service up on my new OpenBSD machine today! Thanks to @romanzolotarev amongst others for their thorough OpenBSD guides. It was fun to configure httpd and relearn how to use ports after not touching it in a decade.

Tried becoming a Patron - but ran in some issues (card holder *needs* to have the same name as Patreon account). Gonna sort them out, you'll have a new pledger today or tomorrow.

fanless desktop computer.

Finally managed to write about my current setup. Will update some photos later, stay tuned :)

@romanzolotarev Really enjoyed reading about your fanless setup. Thanks for taking the time to write it up!

I'm not using zsh (yet?).

Every time I ask someone who uses it whether they like it, they say it's great.

(Almost) every time I ask them what makes it better than bash, the only thing they can think of is 'better completions'.

Which makes sense I guess, completions are awesome.

I was playing with xsetroot(1). In addition to setting the color of your desktop, it can place a binary image. I converted my current desktop. I like it. Dithered images still look awesome. #OpenBSD

Thank you! I also like the mention of vi recovery files in the copyright notice :)

@mwlucas Read your book, posted about it in the most obscure place.:

Thanks for Ed Mastery!

Thanks @tomasino for mentioning it!

I am a programming simpleton. I babble a lot about lately, I am running on most machines I own, I build in my spare time and I have a fetish for niche programming languages.

I am happy to help you if I can. I leave you with the rest to figure it out...
