Kinda hard to tell who the target audience on this is?
On the one-hand you've got some direct kernel/release changes that go way over my head as a Linux user (what the hell is the uvm-handler?). Then a few lines down, you've got some pretty rudimentary Shell tips that I would expect anyone with a terminal to have learned within their first few months of use.
I like the concept, though. Site looks great on mobile, looks like you've got an RSS feed. This would definitely be the kind of thing I would add to my Pocket and read with my morning coffee, if I were a BSD user.

That's so cool! I love undeadly but it's great to also have this website, with interesting content I wouldn't normally come across. I'd have no idea that OpenBSD was installable on Gandicloud, for example. Or how to play Bach's prelude in C minor on OpenBSD using the MIDI speakers (issue #2). Thanks and keep up the great work!
I'm really confused by this webzine.
It's a single page aggregation of undeadly.org or ..what?
How is that a webzine?
It's just a fun way to present some news about OpenBSD that the author cares about. What's confusing? There can be more than one website about OpenBSD.
as someone else reported, the confusing fact is that it's advertised as a webzine yet it does not come in the shape of a webzine.
it was more "magazine" layout previously, but they solicited feedback from the community that this single-page HTML layout was preferable to the "magazine" style layout.
Hey neat -- my post on running Signal Desktop on vmm(4) got featured here.
In stark contrast to the majority of top level comments here, I am very happy with this 'zine's existence and am always happy to come across it. I have added it to my RSS feed, but I also tend to come across it via other media as well. I'm always happy to see it and happy to see it being delivered to a wide audience.
I appreciate a curated set of highlights of recent dev. The linked articles have been >80% valuable to me. In some issues, some of the content is less applicable to me, and in others more -- this is fine.
Many thanks to the authors/editors!
Me too; I've always wanted to learn about OpenBSD, and this may just be the way to start learning about it for me.
I don't get this website. A webzine, as I understand it, is a magazine published on the web. I have followed this site since it was launched as I was waiting for it to become "more". But this is, no disrespect intended, more or less completely useless.
I think it is very useful, for example, I would not know "uvm handler" was unlocked without this issue. May not be a multi-page zine, but it has nice and useful I can look into elsewhere when I have time.
So I do not need to keep track of multiple sources for OpenBSD. Just this and the OpenBSD Journal
It's quite literally not useless. It's a collation of info, community stuff, interesting links, latest changes, etc. What's _actually_ useless is your comment calling the webzine useless. "Let people enjoy things."
