Re: Fan spinning constantly on Lenovo X1C and 6.6

2020-01-24 Thread Jay Williams
I'm running an X220 myself, and I noticed that the fan was constantly running
since upgrading from 6.5 to 6.6. I figured it was just Firefox being a hog, but
it does it even when Firefox isn't running, but after seeing this thread, I'm
thinking there must be some other reason.

Re: roundcube installation php modules

2018-07-10 Thread Jay Williams
Create a php file with  inside, and confirm that PHP-FPM is 
picking up the extensions. I'd also confirm via the command line, using a 
command such as:

$ php-5.6 -i | grep intl

Why then do you have any products on the OpenBSD store?

The whole idea is to generate some extra cash for OpenBSD. 

This little sticker giveaway has netted the OpenBSD Foundation at least
$50, some of which are first-time donors, all for some little pieces of
paper with adhesive on the back. My goal is not to rip off anyone, but 
to help the project.

Re: OpenBSD Puffy Stickers

2017-11-30 Thread Jay Williams
Currently the OpenBSD store has mugs, t-shirts, posters, and CDs. All of
those require more expense than stickers. Stickers are rather inexpensive
to produce, can be sold for high markup, and cost very little to ship, not
to mention are very popular, especially in the tech industry.

It wouldn't require any new artwork or commissions. If you were to sell
Puffy stickers or OpenBSD Logo stickers I'm sure they'd be top-sellers.

Case in point, UnixStickers.com charges $2.69 per sticker and that doesn't
include shipping.

StickerMule was fantastic. I can't remember the last time I've been more
impressed by an ordering process and professional service. The stickers look
fantastic too, so no complaints from me.

By the way, there are two stickers lefts up for grabs.

OpenBSD Puffy Stickers

2017-11-29 Thread Jay Williams
I like putting stickers on my laptop, but alas after searching high and
low over the internet I wasn't able to find any good OpenBSD stickers
So, I got a few printed up myself at StickerMule so now all of my laptops
and even my car can show support for OpenBSD.

That being said, I have 7 extra Puffy stickers available if anyone else
would like to have one. They're 3" wide, and have a matte UV coating on
the outside, so they'll work indoors or outdoors.

If you'd like one, you can send me your address, and I'll drop one in
the mail for you. Even better, you can make a donation to the OpenBSD
Foundation as "payment." It's my small way of saying thank you to the 
amazing OpenBSD community.

P.S. Does anyone know why the official OpenBSD store doesn't sell
stickers? I bet they'd be a big seller!



Re: obligatory leaving letter

2017-11-29 Thread Jay Williams
As a new user to OpenBSD, who is trying to learn as much as I can, seeing a
message like this is very disheartening. OpenBSD's security focus and passion
for clean, minimal and secure code is something that the world definitely
needs.

Despite the worldwide trend, especially here in the USA, I hope we can find
ways to get along and work together toward common goals, rather than be divided
against ourselves.

Best of luck on your new endeavor!

Re: The disconnected AC adapter affects Java application launch speed. (SqlDeveloper from Oracle)

Do you have apm enabled with the "-A" flag to enable automatic performance 
adjustment mode?

You can run $ apm to see what it says.
