  1. Hello Guys,
  2.  
  3. I've been using Linux for a while but I've always been intrigued by the BSD community and as a result of always meant to try it out more.

  6. This question Maybe a little to BSD specific for this show I'm not sure. Either way, I enjoy the show you guys put together every week and always get something out of it. Thanks for all the work you put into it.

  8. I installed a virtual machine the other day of FreeBSD and started messing around. What I was wondering about at the moment was the best way to run some simple startup scripts. Like if I wrote my own little backup routine for instance. Normally I would use systemd on the Linux side to start services and check their logs. I've been reading about rc.d in the FreeBSD documentation but I find myself with more questions then I can find answers for because I'm starting from absolute scratch. For example, as long as I include all the requirements in an rc.d script can I do almost whatever I want to in there? I mean I'm sure I should obviously keep it as simple as possible. I'm kind of looking for some good examples and best practices kind of stuff.
