Hi. I'm a Unix Administrator, mathematics enthusiast, and amateur philosopher. This is where I rant about that which upsets me, laugh about that which amuses me, and jabber about that which holds my interest most: Unix.

Cat meme IRL?

A few days ago my daughter called me at work. I could hear the panic in her voice as she said "Dad, it's not my fault!".

There are *many* things that run through a parent's mind in this situation. None of them are pleasant.

I tried to hide the panic *I* was feeling. "What happened?" I asked her. She said "Well, it's about Stewie!"

I love this place.

I have a beaglebone black. It was running OpenBSD 5.5. I felt the urge to upgrade last night, so I set off on a massive fustercluck of cursing, crying, and gnashing of teeth (whatever that means). Oh, and the curse of U-boot bites. Hard.

First, you aren't **EVER** supposed to skip versions when you upgrade OpenBSD. If you have an OpenBSD 5.5 machine and you want to upgrade to OpenBSD-5.7, you need to upgrade to 5.6 first, then upgrade again to 5.7 (or backup everything, perform...

I'll let you read that really quick. Take your time, actually, this blog will be here when you get back.

Back? Awesome. Let me hint you in to a little secret...

OpenBSD has had that technology since 2003.

Let me repeat that: This amazing "new" feature in HardenedBSD has actually been in place in OpenBSD for over a decade now.

Got it? Good....
