Same here. I paid for the first issue, oh, what a crap app, but there was option to export PDF. Fine, I paid annual subscription from the second. PDF: terney.info .

Implementing UFS journaling on a desktop PC (gjournal-desktop) A guide Galvin and Gagne has been made available online in PDF format.
The content, so far, has lived up to the hype. Kudos to the editorial board and the authors.
Unfortunately, imho, the distribution has been less than ideal. I donate to the foundation every year, one of the highlights of my week is when a new BSDNow comes out, I've attended BSDCan, I maintain a few ports and I submit code and bug reports when ability and time make it possible. When other people complained and joked on IRC that the journal was only available in app stores, i. I supposed it was to maximize the return for the foundation, which in the end helps the community build a better OS.
I have an old Kindle, so based on the information on the journal web page at the time, I order from the site store. Unfortunately that didn't work out well. After exchanging a few emails with the support contact, I was told "The Kindle Apps" Reading text on a Unfortunately, the app crashed about a third of the time I opened it and regularly when I was reading mostly when flipping pages.
Examples include: windowing systems , web browsers , email clients , office suites and so forth. In general, the project itself does not develop this software, only the framework to allow these programs to be installed, which is known as the Ports collection.
Applications may either be compiled from source "ports" , provided their licensing terms allow this, or downloaded as pre-compiled binaries "packages". Older releases are not supported and may or may not work correctly with an up-to-date Ports collection. Most ports also have package counterparts i.
Although this method is faster, the user has fewer customisation options. It allows for installation, upgrading and removal of both ports and packages. In addition to pkg, PackageKit can also be used to access the Ports collection.
Main article: FreeBSD jail First introduced in FreeBSD version 4,  jails are a security mechanism and an implementation of operating-system-level virtualization that enables the user to run multiple instances of a guest operating system on top of a FreeBSD host.
It is an enhanced version of the traditional chroot mechanism.
A process that runs within such a jail is unable to access the resources outside of it. Every jail has its own hostname and IP address. It is possible to run multiple jails at the same time, but the kernel is shared among all of them.
Hence only software supported by the FreeBSD kernel can be run within a jail. Other operating systems such as Illumos are planned.
