Distributions  - 
 
As I have some down time in a hotel I decided to play around with some distros I haven't used in a while. I am currently using Fedora 23, which is a vast improvement over the last time I tested Fedora back when it was called Fedora Core.

The install went perfectly. System update went perfectly. Adding repos, codecs, and my preferred software and tools all went without a hitch. The Gnome integration is great, which is no surprise given the relationship between RH and Gnome.

It runs quickly and smoothly, so far. No hints of lagging or hiccups. As someone who prefers Gnome over other WMs/DEs, I am much happier with Fedora than I thought I would be. I may just leave this on my laptop for a while to see how it performs over time.

Slack and Arch are my preferred distros, but I have to admit I am, so far, pretty impressed with Fedora 23. And I'll admit it's kind of nice to have everything working right out of the box without having to edit a single config file.

I've found an issue with it today. It seems there are network issues. Was trying to stream a movie over wifi and kept getting a lot of buffering. Switched over to Debian and streaming was perfect.

It appears that there is some issue with Fedora causing a slow wifi connection.

Nothing fancy, just easy to read for those of us with less than perfect eyesight. Tap temperature to update weather, tap time to open agenda. Outer ring tracks seconds.

Just updated to latest firmware on my S2. Nice to know Samsung isn't just letting things ride.

tried it on a Note 4 too. some days I get notifications, most days I don't. lots of people on various forums are having the same issue. I've tried every "fix" I could find out there , no luck yet. one guy got a new watch but that didn't fix it. seems like most of the problems are with the Note phones :(

No, I haven't bothered upgrading the firmware yet. If it isn't broken, don't fix it.

Gear S Discussion  - 
 
Been using the TMO Gear S for a while and love it. Last week bought the Gear S2 Classic at Best Buy. Seeing photos of it on the web I didn't think I would like it but after seeing it in person I thought it was great.

It's good to have options. When I am going to carry the phone with me I wear the S2 (which I think is great) and when I want to leave the phone behind (or just want to go with the extra geeky look) I wear the S.

Both are awesome watches and I have to say I haven't bothered to wear any of my Wear watches since I bought the S.

Yeah I'm hoping they improve it soon. Right now it's basically a beta.

I've had my Gear VR for a couple of days now, and am loving it. I drive a truck for a living and haul a lot of oversize loads. Since oversize can't move between sunset and sunrise in most states I have a lot of down time this time of year.

I've been watching Netflix and DVDs on a 22" TV in my truck but wanted a bigger screen. I did buy a larger screen TV but it wasn't practical and wound up broken inside of three days.

I ordered the Gear VR from Amazon and find it to be the nearly perfect solution. Not only can I watch Netflix and ripped DVDs in my truck, but the VR environment has the added benefit of making it feel like I am spending time out of the truck.

I am totally sold on this technology and look forward to seeing how it evolves over the next few years.

My favorite place to stay in this area, and I stay here often. While it isn't anything fancy, the owner is a very friendly and helpful guy. The rooms are always clean and comfortable. You just can't beat this place for the price.
