Hi from 2019! Some news about me and this blog.

It's been more than a month since the last article, which is unusual. I
don't have much time these days and the ideas in the queue are not easy
topics, so I don't publish anything.

I am now on Mastodon at solene@bsd.network, publishing things on the
Fediverse. Mostly UNIX propaganda.

This year I plan to work on reed-alert to improve its usage, maybe write
more how-to or documentation about it too. I also think about writing
non-core probes in a separate repository.

Cl-yag, the blog generator that I use for this blog should deserve some
attention too, I would like to make it possible to create static pages
not in the index/RSS, this doesn't require much code as I already have a
proof of concept, but it requires some changes to better integrate
within.

Finally, my deployment tool drist should definitely be fixed to support
tcsh and csh on remote shells for script execution. This requires a few
easy changes. Some better documentation and how-to would be nice too.

I also revived a project named faubackup, it's a backup software which
is now hosted on [Framagit](https://framagit.org/soleneBSD/faubackup).

And I revived another project which is from me, a packages statistics
website to have some stats about installed OpenBSD packages. The code is
not great, the web UI is not great, the filters are not great but it
works. It needs improvements. I'm thinking about making a package of it
for people wishing to participate, that would install the client and add
a cron to update the package list weekly. The Web UI is at this address
[Pkgstat](https://pkgstat-openbsd.perso.pw/), that name is not good but
I did not find a good name yet. The code can be downloaded
[here](https://framagit.org/soleneBSD/obsd-pkgstat).

Thank you for reading :)
