new SpreadFreeBSD.org logos

There are new logos on our SpreadFreeBSD.org website which you can use.

SpreadBSD

Did you know you can help us spread the knowledge and awareness of FreeBSD/PC-BSD by putting one of the new logos on your website, blog or emails and get a point every time somebody clicks on the link?

Bij doing this you can get (by enough points) products from iXsystems free or discounted.

Have a look at the different logos: www.spreadfreebsd.org

pfSense – hardware/server request

Scott Ullrich from pfSense Project

is looking for anybody willing to donate a hardware or a fast server to speed up building and compiling of pfSense.

It seems more and more that I spend 90% of my time waiting for pfSense builds to validate code changes, kernel changes, etc
more…

Here’s a rundown of parts that would be ideal:

  • quad core cpu, or dualquad core if possible
  • 4g ram (not strictly necessary, but useful for cache)
  • 6 sata disks (western dig raptors would rock), and an areca or similar card with 256M-1G battery backed cache

Is there anybody able to help the pfSense project?
