Is that a Chinese word? Jitte in Japanese is a medieval police weapon. (Also called jutte).
I was also active in the beginning on pcbsd forums, I think that somewhere in my scientifically named oldstuff, there's still an interview with Kris Moore for an online BSD magazine, not sure if it managed to produce an issue or not. Gosh, I've gotten old. :-( This was way back when, when PCBSD first started.
Glad to hear the guide helped someone, even if it is years old by now. I think I was out of PCBSD by that time of the firewall incident, I feel as if I would have remembered it.
Since you asked, jitte is a Shotokan black belt kata where you practice defense movements against someone with a staff and take it away from them. Start and ending in the same place or you're not doing it right:I would argue with your pronunciation of te being ta, at least in standard Japanese. Often words get changed in a dialect and I wonder if that's the reason you use ta. Could it be Okinawan? (Just asking, and nostalgically remembering the days of AOL martial arts mailing lists, where people would start challenging others to a fight over such things. I'm old and weak, so I'm *not* challenging).
Wikipedia is writing jutte as 十手, the 10 hands. I think that's the standard spelling for the weapon too. Anyway, I like the name, and I'm sure there's an interesting story behind you adapting it.
As I've aged, I have lost multitasking ability, so I'm envious.
It's worked well for me on any FreeBSD derivatives (Ghost, Nomad,...) and FreeBSD itself. Not a surprise if helloSystem just worked. My hardware is old and well supported....and basic stuff I tried (youtube video, though I didn't try netflix, prime, or others requiring widevine), browsing and so on, worked pretty well.
