Puffy in the cloud

I finally found a nice excuse to run an OpenBSD server. My wife is a huge Dropbox user & I'm not a fan of our photos sitting on their servers. Enough said, 640 GB of storage on vultr.com (plus having me of her head) finally convinced her that we should run our own :) In this post I'll go over the steps I took to configure a full blown ownCloud server running on OpenBSD current with the new httpd.

The first patch I received

People often speak about contributing to an open source project and how that allows you to grow as a developer. Rarely if at all anyone speaks on the impact that patch has on the person receiving it. In this post I'll go over a patch I received 7.5 years ago and the reasons why I still remember it up to this day.

Go development on OpenBSD

is perfectly fine. In this post I'll go over the tools I use, their setup and some pitfalls that you might encounter while first dipping your toes in lang/go on OpenBSD. I will also mention a new go related port I just submitted for review & inclusion :)
