After a great deal of procrastinating, I've rearranged my home office again and restored my FreeBSD machine to its rightful place under the desk. It must have been switched off for several months now, as the update (buildworld for 7- and 8- as well as portupgrade -aPP) is taking forever. There's a reason for running through this routine: there are a few things I want to test with systems upgrades and jails. In addition, I'd like to document how the EBN is set up, to the level of detail of including package names. This is part of an effort to clean up the EBN code and separate the tools from the website a little; that in turn is in advance of adding some new features to Krazy / EBN in general.
It's kind of nice to be back on FreeBSD again. I'll have to take note and compare the FreeBSD KDE packages with the OpenSolaris ones I produce.
PS. There's nothing like cleaning your desk with a shovel and just dumping everything in a box never to be looked at again. I did retrieve several Bluetooth dongles and SD cards that I'd thought lost.
