New Talk

It gives me great pleasure to announce a new talk:

FreeBSD: A brief history of the early days, by Rodney W. Grimes
Rod Grimes, involved with early FreeBSD, will give a brief history of the early days.
Rod will talk about the time from the pre-patch-kit days up to the 2.x releases, with some mysterious history gleaned from the repo logs.
