This is really good news: California Attorney General delays .org sale https://domainnamewire.com/2020/01/31/breaking-california-attorney-general-delays-org-sale/
I’m going to have to get clever in terms of backing up this machine, since everything on my network currently gets backed up to an SMB share, and I can’t find any hint of smbfs support in recent versions of #OpenBSD.
Mild cursing. Not angry.
Hmm, my current theory is that it’s the cheap-ass mouse I’m using. Let me try a better one and see if some of these problems go away.
Hardware support seems fidgety on #OpenBSD compared to what I’m used to. I’m having to unplug my mouse and plug it back in because it just stops working. X11 will sometimes also refuse to start until I log out and back in.
Is this common? Anything I should be looking at to improve the situation?
It worked once!
I take that back. It doesn’t want to start X11 at all ...
Seem to be having issues getting #OpenBSD to start X11 when my laptop is connected to the USB-C dock ...
Which is all just another way of saying we don’t invest enough in training junior devs, and we’re paying the cost
Meanwhile, the added complexity cost in terms of infrastructure ends up becoming a distraction from what we (senior devs and architects) should have been doing all along, *designing* really good, clear API’s and teaching junior devs to embrace and improve them.
Annoyed with myself for trying to rsync my home folder from my laptop onto a network drive instead of creating an archive.
It ran all night and didn’t complete, further delaying my #OpenBSD install.
One small thing about switching to #OpenBSD that I’m really excited about I’d that my son really likes puffer fish, which I didn’t even know until today
Prepping my laptop for the leap to #openbsd: rsyncing my home volume so I can copy it back after the reformat.
Goals: UEFI boot with a custom-signed (secure boot) EFI loader and full-disk encryption. Everything else should more or less fall into place if I can get that worked out.
