Absolute OpenBSD, $50 SSH Mastery, $20 DNSSEC Mastery (4 proof copies only), $20
If you buy a book, I’ll throw in a free Tilted Windmill Press T-shirt while . . . → Read More: Books at BSDCan

Absolute OpenBSD is at the printer. I can do nothing more on this book. For better or worse, the book is complete. I’m resisting the urge to scream “I can do it better! Give me the book back, I will rewrite it until it doesn’t suck!”
I got copyedits back on DNSSEC Mastery. Hopefully, the . . . → Read More: Misc: Books, and April Fool’s

Yesterday’s election was mostly a primary, but also included a few millage issues. The purpose of a primary is to keep the obvious maniacs from getting onto the final ballot, so I make the effort to vote. (Your definition of “obvious maniacs” probably differs from mine, but that’s okay.)
I’m waiting for verification, and am . . . → Read More: Technology versus Democracy
I usually post two different sorts of items here: tech articles, and publishing articles. Would you lot prefer I did two separate blogs? I would probably still feed both to third parties such as Twitter and Facebook, but it appears that most of my readers use RSS.
If nobody cares, I’ll leave things as they . . . → Read More: Splitting blog?
You can find me on Google Plus. The short link is http://gplus.to/mwlucas.
