    OpenVPN on your private hw/vps and all traffic over that. Your own DNS, your own mailserver.

      If you want some examples for OpenBSD:

      Mailserver OpenVPN

      1. 1

        This always is good, but then for work or something like that you need to enter to a crap site and these kind of settings breaks things, anyone can confirm that this is pretty safe on that way?

        1. 12

          This is a work in progress project and there is still a lot do.

          If you want to get involved in OpenBSD wifi development, you could get started by helping us with this effort.

          Eventually, this driver could support wireless on the rpi3 and some macbooks.

          1. 10

            Thanks, stsp, for all your help getting me into the wireless world! And for reaping all that karma now. ;)

            This driver might be an easier way of getting into OpenBSD wifi development, since all the wifi madness is done in the firmware, so one doesn’t have to understand everything right away.

            1. 2

              Will it support BCM43225?

              1. 10

                BCM43225

                Nope, that’s a SoftMAC chip. The problem with these chips is that the Linux driver code is too insane and large by OpenBSD’s standards: https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/tree/drivers/net/wireless/broadcom/brcm80211/brcmsmac/phy/phy_n.c

                With FullMAC, this junk is hidden in the firmware so we don’t have to maintain it.

                  Are these ones the ones on macbook/macbook airs?

                    They completely blew it. All those polls were for nothing. It’s just a T470 with a 7 row keyboard: http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2017/09/retro-thinkpad-image-2017

                    It’s the same crappy 16:9 screen like all the other laptops today. I hear all the time that nobody makes 4:3 or 16:10 screens anymore, yet Apple sells 12.9’’ and 10.5’’ 4:3 tablets and 12’’, 13.3’’, and 15.4’’ 16:10 laptops without any issue. All with high quality IPS screens, most of them wide gamut even.

                    1. 3

                      Poor chassis choice. Retro ThinkPad enthuiasts are either into the smaller models (600X, 701C, X300, the entire X series for that matter) or the really huge ones (A-series, 700 series) - making it T470 based makes no one happy.

                      1. 4

                        Um, plenty of my “retro ThinkPad enthusiast” friends love their T40 and T60 series models, which are comparable in physical size to today’s T400 series models (~13in by ~9in).

                        Speaking for myself—who got into the game too late to be much a “retro ThinkPad enthusiast”—I like my X220. I don’t especially care for my T450s daily driver, but that has little to do with the form factor (which I think is fine), and everything to do with the keyboard, lack of ThinkLight + lid latch + ports in the back, and the 16:9 (rather than 16:10) display.

                        If the “ThinkPad Retro” had a 16:10 display, it would be perfect for me, modulo what we haven’t heard about what ports it’ll have. By the way, since it hasn’t been linked in this subthread, here is the image of the “ThinkPad Retro” that Lenovo accidentally leaked.

                        1. 1

                          I agree with you - though I had older Thinkpads, including the X60s. I must say, that I love my T450s a lot - I like the form factor of the laptop, but I would prefer a better keyboard and more vertical screen. I have to say that I started to like to have that much horizontal space, as I am able to edit two programs side by side.

                          Thanks for the photo - I like the keyboard, especially the big ESC key :-)

                          1. 1

                            FWIW I edit three files side by side in my 15” MacBook Pro, and I still have better vertical space than the T450 in about the same physical package.

                            1. 2

                              I do not know anything about MacBooks, but the T450s, is only 14”, so it’s normal that a 15” has more vertical and horizontal space. To have a 15” in the same overal size like the T450s, this sounds very interesting. But in any case Mac will never be for me - I need the TrackPoint, a good keyboard and Linux.

                        2. 2

                          Exactly, it makes no sense. Plus that 16:9 screen.

                          1. 3

                            The worst part is that when sales are slow, they’re going to blame it on “oh, the enthusiast market isn’t willing to put their money where their mouth is” instead of on the horrible screen, and we won’t see things like this happen again.

                      1. 17

                        Thanks! Having a place to sleep during a hackathon is very important to me and this makes it happen :)

                        1. 14

                          That, and the fact there is a hackathon to start with!

                          1. 10

                            What? Why are you wasting valuable hacking time sleeping? ;)

                            1. 3

                              At the very least, one could sleep on the keyboard, like real hackers. Then blame the cat for all the noise. There is a cat in the hackathon room, right?

                            2. 1

                              hehe

                            1. 1

                              And I siting here waiting for a sparc64 laptop.

                                  zabbix FTW!

                                  1. 3

                                    Thank you for this! And still amazed by the simple, clean and beautiful design of the site!

                                    1. 3

                                      I always wondering about having this keyboards, are awesome, super cute, but at that level of tuning, if you touch a regular keyboard for sure type slow as fuck right? Because of distribution of keys?

                                      1. 2

                                        If you went and used only a 40% for two years, you would be slow at a regular keyboard, but it’s very unusual that anyone does that. Most people can’t avoid occasionally using conventional keyboards now and then, and that’s typically enough to keep your speed up.

                                        1. 2

                                          I use a Kinesis Advantage. After I first switched to it, it was a bit awkward going back to my MacBook keyboard, but now I can easily switch between the two.

                                        1. 3

                                          Sonarr under FreeBSD inside KVM on SmartOS here.

                                          I really should move it to a native zone at some point. Can’t be bothered messing with mono though.

                                          1. 5

                                            Talk dirty to me.

                                          1. 5

                                            Did you know you can run Sonarr directly on OpenBSD? :D

                                            1. 3

                                              I don’t want to run mono on my beautiful OpenBSD, I want to running that crap on a Linux ;D

                                              1. 3

                                                It could be more secure to run it natively on OpenBSD

                                                edit: I maintain sonarr and radarr on FreeBSD

                                                1. 1

                                                  I forgot /s

                                                2. 2

                                                  Over docker. Because security matters.

                                                  1. 2

                                                    Why not run OpenBSD in the VM as well? It’d be segregated from the rest of the system and still running on OpenBSD.

                                                    1. 1

                                                      I just wanted to try the alpine machine, so I tried with Sonarr

                                                    2. 1

                                                      As a C# developer and OpenBSD user, it’s perfectly fine.

                                                      Speaking of Mono, I need to finish my port of it to Haiku. (Not even BeOS is safe. Muhahaha!)

                                                  1. 1

                                                    The Sun hardware I’m pretty familiar with but does anyone know what the Comparex 7/71 is? Dumb terminal perhaps?

                                                    1. 1

                                                      Probably, this was like 8 years ago, and I never ask about it, but they have a lot dump terminals and sun terminals with ultra1. I think that Comparex is a mips machine.

                                                    1. 1

                                                      Now they’d do it for the nsa

                                                      1. 1

                                                        And I just retire my old ibook, so long and thanks for all the builds :)

                                                          1. -2

                                                            Is that a woman?

                                                            1. 3

                                                              Does it matter?

                                                              1. 2

                                                                It don’t matter when it’s Arcturian

                                                            1. 1

                                                              Chrome on OpenBSD? How is that possible? I want it on OpenIndiana :)

                                                              1. 1

                                                                With pain. A lot of pain.
