Hurricane season is well underway, and if you're an information junkie like me, you like to watch storms progress even if you're thousands of miles away from the tropics. I was looking for a good hurricane tracking software package for either my phone or Linux desktop, and I realized everything I'm looking for is available on a simple webpage.
If you want an interactive map of current tropical activities that is fully Linux compatible, swing on over to The Weather Channel's Hurricane Tracker.
Their interactive map is full of useful information about any storm currently swirling around. Yes, the map itself is powered by Bing™, but it's completely compatible with Linux. So whether you're an information junkie in the Midwest like me, or wary resident of the Lesser Antilles; Weather.com's hurricane tracker is a pretty interesting tool.

Free Webinar: Hadoop
Some of key questions to be discussed are:
- What is the “typical” Hadoop cluster and what should be installed on the different machine types?
- Why should you consider the typical workload patterns when making your hardware decisions?
- Are all microservers created equal for Hadoop deployments?
- How do I plan for expansion if I require more compute, memory, storage or networking?
