Comment: Re:Will OpenBSD switch to Systemd? (Score 1) 290

Recently both Debian and Ubuntu decided to make the switch to Systemd. With more and more distros switching to Systemd, will OpenBSD do the same?

Systemd's license is incompatible with OpenBSD, thus it would need to be rewritten from scratch (and it would probably refactored too). For systemd to appear in OpenBSD there needs to be a benefit to OpenBSD... not simply convenience for people moving from Linux. This is how pf was born: IPFilter was removed from OpenBSD due to concerns about its license and the pf developers refactored IPFilter's baroque rules syntax for simplicity and consistency.

I was just about to post something like "wait until the Europeans, Koreans or Japanese start posting their speeds". The USA is so far behind that average speeds elsewhere seems screaming fast at home... Then there's Canada, which was amoung the fastest 10 years ago, but then stopped improving. Now they're trailing.

For mac users, I make sure that my computer is reachable by ssh and I set up a "help" account. Then I email the following commands (with appropriate substitutions)

sudo /System/Library/CoreServices/RemoteManagement/ARDAgent.app/Contents/Resources/kickstart -activate -configure -access -on -clientopts -setvnclegacy -vnclegacy yes -clientopts -setvncpw -vncpw VNC-PASSWORD -restart -agent -privs -all

ssh -R 5901:127.0.0.1:5900 -R 2201:127.0.0.1:22 help@MY-IP-ADDRESS-OR-DNS

Next I PHONE the person and get them to start up "Terminal" and copy/paste the commands above into the Terminal window. I also tell them what to type into the Terminal window when it asks for the "help" account's password.

Now I can start up my VNC client and connect via port 5901
