OpenBSD people ... I have a question as I am preparing an article for the next episode about OpenBSD in general and PF...

Just exactly/approx. how good of a firewall You can build out of OpenBSD? Should I simply think of pFsense or it can go way beyond that (more secure, more features, IDS/IPS)?

Microsoft technologies are fun and all until you find a bug and all they can say is: "We know it exist, and we won't share any source code so you could find a workaround.. And it's likely to be fixed in 2-3 years". (Dotnet engine error). Proposed solution by microsoft: Run your production environment in "debug" mode; the bug don't happen when in debug". So the app, already taking 12go to disk space and 4 go of ram will now take more than 20go of space and 9go of ram... Project folder is 12mo.

2 weeks vacations.. leaving the cat behind wasn't an easy task; We asked a lot of people to pass regularly to check on her and and I built a pretty good camera surveillance system. It was really easy; For the "server stuff", ZoneMinder. And for turning every webcam into an ipcam; gen2brain/cam2ip. Everything via docker containers... it took me 10 min to set everything up.

So we now have a cat-cam :D

C# dotnet is really easy for someone who did a lot of C... But the project I'm working on look afflicted by the same problem than nodeJs: Loading "non-understood" modules to do important stuff...

We still have 12 new SDF Ceramic Mug Cups available for good homes in the SDF Fundraiser store from that hidden stash we found in a storage box! They feature a stainless steel cap and were made to celebrate SDF's 25th anniversary in 2012.

Well, the nouveau support for my video card finally came. I was testing fedora and forgot to do the usual "nouveau.modeset=0" when suddenly it worked anyway ^^' Just tested "PRIME" and it work ! And the discrete video card shut itself after a moment when not used. It's just perfect. Woah.

Well.. I was sure one would need a "display driver" to use xorg on a beaglebone black. I installed a minimal xorg and... it magically worked out of the box (tested because I was wondering what would be the driver (not intel, nvidia or anything I knew). (Archlinux Arm). It should not ^^' I should have to do at least something... a "generic driver" or an old old-made c compil for an old unknown driver... hm

It's been a while I touched nodejs. In the sector I am it's seen as unreliable, unsafe, unstable and just bad. I wanted to try a small app with npm... and the message it gave me at the end... :
"found 29 vulnerabilities (9 low, 3 moderate, 17 high)".

Well... now at least they advertise some of them now ^^'

A bird just fell into my chimney (About 10 meters) 10 min ago. I took apart my fireplace to free it... And while doing that I forgot about my cat...

The second the bird got out of it, my cat was flying into the air to intercept the poor bastard... I had to open the jaws of my cat to let it free again... two time...
