Hey, ZHackers fans (and fellow aficionados of scifi and zombies!), I'm heading to Printers Row List Fest this weekend!  I'll have copies of all my books including ZHackers: Volumes 3.0 AND 3.1 for purchase.  This year I'm sharing a table with fellow writer's group member +James Roby.   He writes kickass James Bond-style spy novels about Detroit's own Urban Knight.

This is a really awesome project I've been dying to share with everyone!  Thanks to my fellow +System76 ers.  +Jason DeRose packaged the software and wrote a great tutorial, and I helped make the video with +Cassidy James Blaede.

Seriously, just check it out!
 
Build this interactive topographic map at home with our easy step-by-step guide packaged just for Ubuntu. Shape real sand and become mesmerized by the life-like simulated water flow. Check out the project details at http://s76.co/Y2Fwda

I saw that on Facebook -- really cool, David! My geology professor friend sounded especially excited about it.

Tracking down 'frame-eating' bug in the version of x264 included in wily.  So far, this seems to affect both straight ffmpeg-based programs (blender) and gstreamer pipelines using x264enc.  This only happens when encoding intraframes and not all-keyframes.
On close testing, affected files have the correct number of frames, but every frame's timestamp is offset by ~2 frames, so frame 0 has a non-zero timestamp that's (almost) exactly what frame 2 should have.

Leo talks about his sweet new laptop, Ubuntu Gnome's bootloader choice and picking the 'bad option', and +System76 support saving the day.

Enjoy your Oryx, Leo, great video!

Ubuntu users, if you're having trouble getting updates (and your computer is running hot because appstreamcli is eating all your CPU), there's a pretty easy solution: disable xenial-backports and run the updater.

Open Software & Updates, go to the Updates tab, and deselect "Unsupported updates (xenial-backports)".

Click the close button and refresh the software list when prompted.

Next, launch the Software Updater to install updates.

After the updates are finished installing, you can go back to Software & Updates and reselect "Unsupported updates (xenial-backports)".  Future updates should work after this.

Huh, I just realized that if you count +Terry Hancock's Lunatic's series, I have a Kevin Bacon number of 3 via Paul Birchard.

So we need to encourage Paul to do a movie with Kevin Bacon so we can move up to 2, then? ;-)
