Welcome to gek being a gek, but now on BSD. Let’s get into it!


Q: Why?
A: Blame @AnotherDev: BSD Challenge

Q: What are you trying to do?
A: A home server. It should be my primary git server, as well as, storage server.

Q: Why OpenBSD?
A: The more tism the better Focus on simplicity, correctness and security. If this will work out I will move my web facing VPS to OpenBSD too.

Q: So any plan?
A: Yes, see below.

In all seriousness tho, what are you looking to get it to do?

me neither, a vm on mac. ping cant resolve a host, dig can.

just local git, nfs, maybe some more shit, we’ll see. I might migrate it to newer CPU later. oops, spoiler
