Eugenia, now that you've got that T-shirt, beware when you go to Texas;-).

Happy birthday FreeBSD

I'm using FreeBSD on some system, works great. (except on sparc64, because of syscons support)
Netcraft's stats proves the quality of BSD...

Happy birthday!

Great!

Are the pics (the one with the two girls whipping a guy) on dnalounge.com front page also from the freebsd party? if so then either the freebsd dudes are kind of kinky or they're demostrating the evilness of the GPL (the GPL dungeon maybe)

:-D

Happy Birthday FreeBSD, here's to wishing you another 10 years of "dying" ;)

Yeah! Or at least in SF during Summer holiday when I'm there ;)
LinuxWorld 2003 was cool too, so was the Helix party afterwards. Free drinks and food + a T-shirt ;)

Let's hear it for your electric company !! That's a long time with uninterupted power. Or were you trying to imply OS stability with no load ?

Hey, how about an IP, I bet there's some juicy security vulnerabilities on that box!

Those are from the FreeBDSM party... Not entirely the same crowd for that one.

Jeremy?

Where was Jeremy Zawodny? Doesn't he own the place?

Matt's pictures
by Eugenia on Tue 25th Nov 2003 22:02 UTC

Thanks for the link, I will update the article with it!

BTW, it is scary, but me and JBQ are on six of Matt's pictures (and we didn't stay for the whole duration there)! Here is one, so you can spot us on the other 5:

BTW, it is such a shame that I didn't know that Matt Dillon was there, because we have made 2 interviews by email already, and I couldn't recognize him in the crowd... At some point I saw a guy with a good camera (Matt's got a Canon 10D, which is what my husband wants to buy for Christmas) and I told my husband: "look, that guy has a nice camera". Ironic... :o

Sorry, I think security is more important than uptime.

Oops! Meant to add...
by DoctorPepper on Wed 26th Nov 2003 00:45 UTC

Thanks FreeBSD team!

My headless FreeBSD 4.9 server is an absolute dream to maintain. Just run my buildworld script when ever a security advisory shows up on the FreeBSD web site, and it just runs...

i use FreeBSD in my machine and i like it so much.

Thanx a lot to FreeBSD Developers.

I wish I could have been there too :/

Long uptime doe not necessarily mean that the server contains security vulnerabilities. Assuming a few things:
1) If you don't use any of the components in the bases system that have been patched for security (OpenSSL etc (OpenSSL can be used from ports and then it is patched separately). To know that you have to keep track of known security vulnerabilities as I assume all good admins do ;)
2) Use a firewall to shield off anything that is not served.
3) The server daemons (Apache, proftpd etc) are patched as needed when security vulnerabilities are found. These and almost everything you install from ports are patched without taking the system down.

Now OTOH if sendmail is used on that system and not patched in over a year then that system is ready for taking ;)


Gotta looove the daemon! Here's something for all the zealots and trollers: FreeBSD 4 is dead! Long live FreeBSD 5! Let's roll for another 10 years

Happy birthday FreeBSD!!!

Happy birthday FreeBSD, you've been serving me well. ;) Unfortunately, I couldn't attend the party, ;) I guess I'll have to wait for the 20th anniversary... Or maybe Dragonfly's 10th anniversary... Only time will tell.

Yay
by Anonymous on Fri 28th Nov 2003 12:16 UTC

Yay FreeBSD. Time to upgrade my FreeBSD server to 5.2, successively upgraded from 4.3 to 4.9 by source over 2.25 years (do THAT with windows or most linux distros ;) ). Want UFS2 filesystems, so sadly have to do a install on a new disk. Oh well ;)

Happy Birthday FBSD :)

You already came long way....but to remain the best as usual you still have to go long way.....Desperately waiting for FreeBSD 5.2..!!!
