Some NetBSD patches have been approved upstream by Xen. This is a good thing for Xen 4 on NetBSD. :)

Roy Marples has recently completed his work to make the NetBSD curses implementation more useful and compatible. So if you're a fan of NetBSD's games, vi, etc, .
iChat with NetGear SPI (stateful packet inspection) is problematic, 2009-12-05 00:00:00 #
So for a while now I've noticed that when is online from home I am unable to hit my website or ssh to my house. I thought this was related to my office's firewall but last night noticed that it was happening locally to. The problem seems to be that netgear's SPI is triggered when iChat (not adium) signs into AIM and it decides to SHUT DOWN ALL INCOMING TRAFFIC! So if this website had extended outages during the day, that could have been a potential reason. Anyway, netgear's SPI sucks and I should put my soekris back in the firewall hotseat.
BSDCan 2010 announced - represent NetBSD, 2009-12-04 00:00:00 #
FYI- If you're going to be in Canada, go to BSDCan. I went to NYCBSDCon and had a pretty good time meeting all kinds of people I see on mailing lists, irc, etc. (Hello, Christos, jlam, and Brian S.), listening to talks about various things, and having something to do when I go somewhere and travel. Also if you're doing something interesting, give a talk! NetBSD does tons of amazing work that no one knows about. :)
NetBSD defaulting to more security, then the normal amount, then back again!, 2009-11-14 00:00:00 #
