New York City BSD Conference (NYCBSDCon), a one day technical conference hosted by the New York City *BSD User Group, will be held on Saturday, September 17th at Columbia University. The all day conference will include a variety of speakers representing the BSD projects and the open source community.

    One hopes that there will be plenty of humppa music on hand for this event.

      Maybe I'm just old and crusty, but what exactly is humpa music? And why is it suddenly the required answer to all things OpenBSD?

          Thanks for the link, I missed that one. Nothing like being on the outside of an inside joke to really confuse you ;)

        because you have lived in a cave and have no idea how openbsd works

        > but what exactly is humpa music?

        something to do with a band called Elškelšiset who do cover versions of songs replacing certain words with hummpa ... I think

        http://www.humppa.com/

        they have cult status round here

        > And why is it suddenly the required answer to all things OpenBSD?

        it's an in-joke, probably originating with the hppa port ...

        Glad you asked, here's what it sounds like: Humppa!

        In this case, ignorance *is* bliss (trust me).

          Heh, I suppose it is an acquired taste, like good Dutch beer when you're used to drinking the Americanized malted barley water.

            Good Dutch beer? Does that even exist?

            I think you're talking about Belgian beer. Big difference!
