Connect your enchanted picture box to your scribing device, if you dare.

I can for sure live with that power usage. 😎

Currently running:

jhx, avatar

What I use:

  • A generic i5 PC (i5-8400) with 32GB of RAM and 2 x 4TB SSD ( mirror), vanilla 14.0 with Samba and NFS

  • A small i5 (i5-6500T) with 16GB of RAM for running containers and little bits and pieces here and there, vanilla 12

Both are used - got them for cheap from eBay 😎

@jhx Thanks. I have some older stuff here also which I use for also. Jails to the rescue. Only Bhyve bites me every time booting so a separate debian box would be better.

Alas, I have to consider some other hardware that is more BSD friendly than what I currently have for my main laptop. Wifi worked great on NetBSD, whereas it was flaky on FreeBSD, but the audio input was the flaky one.

A ThinkPad, maybe? I'll gladly accept hardware recommendations for BSD-friendly models from at least a decade ago (read: cheap).

Current status: Deciding between Void and Alpine for the next episode of The Main Machine Trials®

Do you live in Guernsey?
Do you use FreeBSD?
Do you want to financially support its continued development?

If you answered 'yes' to all of these questions, then I have good news for you - the FreeBSD Foundation's payment provider have made some fixes so you can now donate from Guernsey!

You should also get in touch with me so that we can start a user group :-)

When you see me holding a Macbook at BSDCan, you need to understand, it's running FreeBSD


Any wifi people have some time? I'm using an ancient bwn card and this threahd (last post) is making me think there's a reversion to something because it's the only mention I can find using 14.0…

I've already built a kernel accepting the GPL so I'm not super afraid of getting my hands dirty

(I can provide better info in a bit, but the linked forum thread is my exact steps, which, once it was crashing the same way, lead me to that thread)

Seems that to this day a package for is still not built for the raspberrypi in 14-RELEASE. Without it, Office365 isn't 100% usable in it, and I'm forced to choose Debian at work despite the huge performance gap.

Cuh-mon, :(

(N.B.: 100% would ditch it to use only Firefox if the support was the same, but alas, it's MS after all)

The bazaar hosts a babble of languages. Learn to speak to all the merchants so you can haggle for the packages you desire. Perhaps even antiquities from the shop, from a time before the oceans drowned Atlantis.
