I downloaded and compiled
libtls for OpenSSL.
I also recompiled my Lua wrapper for
libtls and reran the profiling tests from the other day.
I can now say for certain that there is no need to profile LibreSSL because the results speak for themselves—an accumulation of 24 CPU seconds using OpenSSL vs. 1 minutes, 24 seconds using LibreSSL.
Looking at the results,
it makes some sense.
The LibreSSL library I'm using the the “portable version” for non-OpenBSD systems,
and there's probably little work to making it fast.
So now I have to rethink my using
LIBRESSL_VERSION_NUMBER when compiling the Lua module.
I will no longer be using the LibreSSL version and I can't exactly rely upon the
TLS_API value either … sigh.

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or
entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent
links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: http://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
