NYCBUG dmesg tracker

Will H. Backman
For those of you who are sending dmesg output to the developers, you may
also want to post your dmesg to the New York City BSD Users Group dmesg
tracker.

 From their site:
"Upload your dmesg so others can see your kernel boot messages and
related troubleshooting details. Each dmesg is searchable for particular
hardware, error messages, etc. and can help others as a reference for
their BSD system. The filter provided looks only in the dmesg and works
best with single word searches."

Oh, it's accepting submissions again is it...I had a couple I wanted
to send in a few months ago.

It would be nice to see some more brand-name servers on there,
with information on specific models (SATA vs SCSI, version/model
numbers, maybe approximate date purchased etc) if possible,
and running up-to-date OS releases (lots of 3.6/3.7 on there,
even for recent entries)...

Super cool site.  This brings a question to mind: is there a reason
that no useful sites like this are linked to the main site (at least,
none that I found)?

        Because while it looks cool and minty, it's no
substitute for sending dmesg's to [hidden email], which get
put where developers can access them and use 31337 tools much
more sophisticated than a php interface (like grep) to get
useful information out of them for making OpenBSD better.

        While I certainly don't mind if people put them there,
please remember that sending them to [hidden email] is
what really matters for OpenBSD development. It's not on the
main site because we'd really rather people send dmesg's
to someplace that helps development.
