That's a good comparison and it is the point I was making. Nobody has ever
legally printed money with his own printer but people have been able to mine
bitcoins with their own computers until recently. That was the original
point of bitcoin and it is already on the verge of disappearing. bitcoin was
supposed to be decentralized currency but because of increasing resources
needed for mining that part is no longer relevant. 

Do you really want another unelected federal reserve board of bitcoin? That
kind of defeats the purpose.

Convince doesn't work. Especially as clients are happy with something
and you don't have real alternative for that. They don't care about
your platform and if there's much more people which don't care then
you're in trouble.

For example I'm forced to Windows after years on OpenBSD, just because
there's no way how to use Microsoft Office communicator / Lync on
anything except MS/Apple. On Linux somewhat limited experience with
web plugin, but it's rather harsh experience and doesn't cope well
with meetings, sharing desktop and so on and I don't want Linux
anyway. On OpenBSD I'm out completely, because Citrix ICA works just
on i386 because of compat_linux, but there's not sndio plugin for
Linux yet so no audio, same is true for rdesktop (and similar) and
can't virtualize because it's slow in Qemu and sndio is not here as
well. KMS with modern vga cards is second problem as well as I'm not
able to use second output to monitor. I'm not blaming OpenBSD or its
devs at all, they are doing excellent work with limited resources they
have and trying to help as I can. (be it translations, help to members
on misc, evangelize, pay some t-shirt or other stuff sometimes or
donation and so on). For me OpenBSD was and is best operating system
even for desktop (for my desktop use including multimedia and other
stuff), just my requirements changed at work because of external
entities and dualboot is not a way and virtualization options are very
limited. Maybe because of moving everything to web there will be soon
chance to have OpenBSD as only system (if that will not be done with

Re: Last i386 snapshot broken ?

Hi,

I just tested install52.iso, the last snapshot built on 15 Oct 12.
It works.

HOWTO_PIPEX_NPPPD.txt revsion 1.3 is too old for 5.1.

Did you do

 # sysctl net.pipex.enable=1

?

Hi list,
thanks for replies.

Luis, than I must have on  <at> snapgear route rule as:

It must be considered insecure?

Yep. I had added a 'log' keyword to the redirect rule for spamd (incoming 25 -> 8025) to get some
'observability'... Spamlogd caught that log entry and immediately whitelisted the sender.. Its a bit
unfortunate that it is then not possible to log the rdrs but I can live with that.

To avoid this problem, use another pflog interface for spamlogd. See the man
page for details.
