A long-standing data corruption bug in ZFS was all over the #zfs news this week. A very good summary is available at FreeBSD Bug 275308 .


  • it's already been fixed and has been merged into FreeBSD stable/14 (and other branches)
  • it's also extremely unlikely to have been hitting you if you have ordinary workloads

Just stumbled across this article from 9 years ago:
NTFS is still the status quo on Windows, believe it or not.

Peter Neubäcker has a stunning Penrose tiling floor on his terrace… I guess now he‘s got to get a new floor though:


In case you are making macOS Installer packages and doing that since ages, you should take note of the following passage from the productbuild man page and revisit your Distribution files:

NOTE: On Apple Silicon, the macOS Installer will evaluate the product's distribution under Rosetta 2 unless the arch key includes the arm64 architecture specifier. Some distribution properties may be evaluated differently between Rosetta 2 and native execution, such as the predicate specified by the sysctl-requirements key. If the distribution is evaluated under Rosetta 2, any package scripts inside of product will be executed with Rosetta 2 at install time.

Although it seems awkward at first, this is indeed necessary - any "script" might as well be a binary instead which in turn might require Rosetta 2 (as it's probably not Universal, which is typical for old Installer packages).

In case you're creating the Distribution files manually, the options XML element has a hostArchitectures attribute which lets you specify the exact requirements.

Thanks to Randy Saldinger (Mothers Ruin Software) for letting me know emoji people:wink
