[talk] OpenBSD ports docs

Hi everyone --

Followup from Wednesday night's meeting. Here's links to the OpenBSD FAQ 
section on ports and packages as well as the OpenBSD porter's handbook. 
Remember too there is man page documentation. You'll want to start with 
ports(7), which I've linked below as well, then move on to the other man 
pages in the SEE ALSO section.

~Brian

[talk] FreeBSD EC2 Crash Course?

Hello all,

I recently setup my first EC2 instance, and that was my very first foray into “the cloud”.

I am seeing a huge mound of documentation, I am not seeing a nice list of gotchas or a good overview of things
like instance storage vs. EBS vs. ephemeral storage and such.

I know there’s a few here that run things on a fairly large scale in Amazon’s cloud - I really only need a
few cheap standalone instances.  My concerns boil down to:

• How to never lose my public IPs
• How to safely backup the entire instance off-site (none are over 10G)
• Swap (seriously - even something this simple has caveats and apparently if you use EBS you can rack up a
huge bill if something spins out of control and hits swap hard)
• Any FreeBSD-specific gotchas beyond Colin’s notes here: http://www.daemonology.net/freebsd-on-ec2/

In short, I really want to just treat this more like a simple VPS instead of a puppet-ified cloudfront
sharknado monster, and I want a recovery path if I break something.

Any pointers?

Thanks,

Charles

[talk] Samsung Chromebook2

I was just browsing through the commits for FreeBSD-CURRENT and stumbled across this change: http://svnweb.freebsd.org/base?view=revision&revision=269369

In the past there has been a lot of interest in running FreeBSD on cheap netbooks (Anyone remember the Asus Eee PC?) so I figured I would pass this along since
the Chromebook2 is a $320 dollar ARM laptop: http://www.samsung.com/us/computer/chrom e-os-devices/XE503C12-K01US

[talk] USB wireless: a quick note

I have to use wireless USB on a certain laptop due to the idiotic BIOS
whitelist.

Quick note about drivers on OpenBSD.

I have found most are using urtwn(4) which is on the flakey side,
including that one a bunch of us bought from Maker Faire last year.

But I bought a few at Microcenter, and one happened to use run(4) with
RT5390.  So far, so good... but happy to have a Ralink chipset.  The
label is "Tenda" with the model W311MI.

[talk] pfsense traffic shaping

Has anyone set up a pfsense router or bridge for traffic shaping for 
testing different network environments ? Simulate slower connections, 
noisy connections, dropped packets etc.

Any tips ? Preferred setups ?

[talk] HOPE...

Suggestion: I imagine whoever is going should contact the speakers at a/the non-script-kiddie event(s) and ask for permission to stand up and announce that the group exists (like a one minute shout-out about the group and the upcoming ports talk...)

The events that stand out as being somewhat non-script-kiddie are (<shameless-plug>now let's check the conference schedule on  the open source events calendar at osfda.org...</shameless-plug>):

Friday:
    Are You Ready to SIP the Kool-Aid?
    Crypto for Makers
    How to Prevent Security Afterthought Syndrome

Saturday:
    Threat Modeling

Sunday:
    Bootkits
    Stupid Whitehat Tricks
