Does it happen to you that all of a sudden, people you don't know - and perhaps people that don't peak your interest - appear in your G+ feed and Google says you're following them?

Third time now for me. #ghostsOfMousClicksPast  ?

I used to get a lot of very religious stuff, Islam and Hindu especially (?!!!), but it was always marked as hot or some such. Haven't had a much of that lately, thank goodness!

People, please take note! If you are going to travel to Iceland and plan on being this kind of tourist - then PLEASE DO NOT COME!

We REALLY don't need more slobs, messmakers, cheapasses that only want to mess up our nature and leave garbage and crap everywhere..

If you can't be bothered to pay for service, access or travel, we can't be bothered to want you here. Your nature-stomping, off-roading and littering costs us piles of money already. I don't want my legacy to my child to be apathy over our nature - giving way to feces and garbage everywhere. If YOU want that kind of nature expericnce, please keep it in YOUR back-yard.

Thank you.

It goes without saying that it's a perfectly valid argument for dumbass locals as well :)

Great! Microsoft Edge now works with G+, and it's faster than Chrome on OS X by at least a factor of two (on the same hardware!)

Well, so much for taking the leap early on (and serves me right, knowing what I know). After updating, my laptop is stuck in an INTERNAL_POWER_FAILURE error - a loop (it boots, logs in, loads the desktop and bluescreens).

I guess the last-minute addition to the Windows 10 team must have been that guy who was responsible for the Windows XP and Vista bluescreens.

Dear +Nokia, I would very much like my next phone to be a remake of the Nokia 1280 with nothing additionally - except 4G connectivity and a WiFi hotspot capability. Nothing else. No internet-enabled programs, NO Android, Windows or iOS, no bloatware, no adware and no lagware. Essentially, I want exactly the 1280 melded with a portable 4G hotspot.

So... I saw this picture on the almighty cesspool that is the Internet, and I thought "are people really this ignorant?

For starters, the only month that actually is 4 weeks is February. Except on a leap year. All others are either 30 days/2 extra (4 months) or 31 days/3 extra.

Second grade mathematics teach that small things pile up in numbers.

So, I wrote a small program that calculates the number of extra days at the end of 9 months as if every month had only 28 days and gestation stated at the first day of any given month.

Extra days for starting month of January are : 21
Extra days for starting month of February are : 21
Extra days for starting month of March are : 23
Extra days for starting month of April are : 23
Extra days for starting month of May are : 24
Extra days for starting month of June are : 21
Extra days for starting month of July are : 22
Extra days for starting month of August are : 21
Extra days for starting month of September are : 21
Extra days for starting month of October are : 21
Extra days for starting month of November are : 21

There are never fewer than 21 days. That's by my book 3 weeks. And May comes as special with 24 "extra" days - that's half a week extra. Now, if gestation lasts 40 weeks, then it's lasting 9 months and at most 1 week, and in May, it's lasting 9 months and 4 days.

I seriously doubt that a third-grader would make this mistake - which increases my suprise that there are actually "grown up" persons that do believe that this is true.

sigh
