I really like Moby's latest ambient album, and incidentally, it's free.
'over the last couple of years i’ve been making really really really quiet music to listen to when i do yoga or sleep or meditate or panic. [...]
it’s really quiet: no drums, no vocals, just very slow calm pretty chords and sounds and things for sleeping and yoga and etc. and feel free to share it or give it away or whatever, it’s not protected or anything, or at least it shouldn’t be.'
We are now writing release notes for #OpenBSD 6.2
This is work in progress. If you want to help out, go through commits since April 1st 2017, get a copy of www/62.html from CVS or git, add missing entries for important changes new in 6.2, and mail your diff to me (email@example.com). I will review and consider adding your suggestions.
(If you have a local clone of the CVS repo, via cvsync or rsync, the relevant commits are listed in the file CVS/Changelog)
The #OpenBSD signify keys for the upcoming 6.2 release:
autoconf/clang (No) Fun and Games - https://undeadly.org/cgi?action=article;sid=20170930133438
@kurtm a bounds check was accidentally removed in a previous commit
Unprivileged user can kernel Panic OpenBSD (at least 6.1 and September 8 amd64 snapshot)
I tried it out and it totally kernel panicked the boxes in question.
Don't even know how it works (yet?) but the fact that normal user can do it is... scary.
