Mainly getting FreeBSD to behave the way I want.
Biggest issue is blank ttys after starting X. The one X is on works
fine but the rest are blank and thus unusable.

Also giving feedback on TrueOS release candidates- haven't got past 2nd
page of installer yet.

And finally, polishing up a shell script and adding some bells and
whistles to it after which I'll try doing the same thing in python so I
can put a gui on it- gives me incentive to learn python something I've
been going to do for quite some time.
