Some pictures from my trip last week to Churchill, Canada. Fantastic time - really amazing seeing polar bears up close in their natural habitat.
The story behind the first four – when bears wander into the wrong areas, they can be tranquilized and held for up to 30 days before being released. This is to discourage the bears from wandering into human territory. Then they're airlifted back to their area.

Fedora 23 has rolled out this week after six months (give or take) of hard work by the Fedora Project. Job done, right? Not exactly–we still need to tell the world that Fedora 23 exists, and why they should be... Continue Reading →

Interested in the future of packaging and deploying complex applications in containers? Check out this post from Christoph Görn, who gives some insight into the development that's going on with Nulecule and Atomic App.
 
More cool and froody stuff going on over on Project Atomic. Want to keep up with Nulecule and Atomic App (our work for composite applications w/multiple containers)? Sign up for the container-tools mailing list here: https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/container-tools
We are pleased to announce Atomic App 0.1.1! Find it at github and docker hub. Atomic App is the reference implementation of the Nulecule Specification for composite applications. It can be used to bootstrap container applications and to install/deploy and run them. One of the key design goals of the Nulecule spec is to be container and orchestration engine agnostic, so that any developer or operator could successfully build, test, install, run...

Great post by +John Mark Walker on the Project Atomic blog.

Tech friends: Some random questions about SD cards, cameras, and ERR messages.

So - I have Nikon D610 that takes two SD cards. I bought some 32GB PNY "Elite Performance" cards and put two in (one for RAW, one for JPG). The camera started throwing an error after I'd taken ~70 pictures. Identified that the camera was complaining about card #2, so I took that out and all was well.

My question(s): Any way under Linux to really test the card and see if it's a bad card? (As opposed to maybe just reformat the card and throw it back in.) Note that this is a brand new card - so if it's bad, it's definitely not from overuse.

Any other experiences with faulty SD cards I should be aware of?

I figure I'll find more Android fans here than elsewhere... For people switching (again, maybe it'll stick this time) to Android, what recommendations do folks have for:

- Music (sync with Linux music players FTW)
- Podcasts
- Everything else?

+Corey Goldberg Thanks, but I'd really like to maintain my collection on my desktop with something like Amarok or Clementine, and then sync with my player.
