First off chas asks:
The simh VAX emulator has received a bit of media attention lately, and seems to be growing in popularity. However, OpenBSD will not run natively on the simulator without a kernel patch. While an installed disk image is available, why not fix the problem at the source?
I realize that this post is rather out of the ordinary. While we as editors do our best to fill the rather large shoes left by deadly.org, things sometimes get delayed, slip through the cracks or we try too hard to balance quality against lack of updates. I thought this approach might help a bit.
We really do rely heavily on reader story submissions, and appreciate all the help we get that way. But on that note, please feel free to include a working email address so that we can contact you if we feel your submission is better answered privately than as a frontpage story (note to such a person named george: if you're curious about PAM and OpenBSD here is mention of an early attempt and further searching even on this site can reveal some useful explanations of why BSDAuth has been prefered).
Naturally, we will not include your email address in the posted story if you request as much when using the add story function. Even when we do link to email addresses, I know I at least try to insert some extra chaff to make the mailto: links less spam-spider friendly; though of course if you request it we will be happy to leave your address unaltered. On another note, we appreciate the feedback from the polls as well, but if you have anything else you would like to chime in on, or think this style of posting is a bit too over the top, let us know. Feel free to reply here, or give us an earful at firstname.lastname@example.org.
