I studied tutorials on-line and previous discussions on @misc. I found
out that for 6.6 amd64, if I disabled ulpt(4), I would not get the

Dear OpenBSD users,
I run OpenBSD 6.6 amd64. The window manager is fvwm with stock configuration.
I am not able to completely set compose key by
$ setxkbmap -layout us -variant dvp -option compose:ralt
What I meant by *not completely* is that I am able to use _right alt_

Thank you. I just tried it. It did not kill the process.
Dear OpenBSD users,
I am not able to kill a python process.
$ pgrep python
showed a PID of 8926
However, I am not able to kill the process.
$ kill -9 8926
# kill -9 8926
Running as root did not help.
How can I kill this process?

My substitute for _pandoc_ is the _org-mode_ of emacs, which is for some
people also good for outlining etc.
But I miss _pandoc_.

Skype usually runs well on Linux.
It may run on FreeBSD too, although I have never looked into that.
One trick that I use is to run Skype on my Android phone.

mu / mu4e is set to read directly ~/Maildir.
I did not change any setting in /etc but did manually edit /etc/passwd.
Here is the setting of
