Ooh, this looks nice.
Quick update to the Google+ Cover Photo

Now when someone visits your Google+ profile or page on the desktop, they’ll see your entire cover photo across the top (vs. just a small section). And importantly: there’s still lots of room for your content underneath.

Cover photos remain 16x9 (up to 2120px by 1192px), so no action is required to enjoy the new experience. The update is rolling out today, so give it a look, and let us know what you think.

P.S: The image behind your profile name is actually a “blurred” version of your cover photo. Check out the examples attached, then explore the possibilities!

"I would like to write that the skill, bravery and superb handling of this emergency by the pilots resulted in saving lives. This was not the case. It was our mistakes that did."

A story with a happy ending. Great insight into the effects of stress and high workload. Completely irrelevant in the day to day life of most computer programmers :)

Our go-to local Indian restaurant. Not overly spicy, but tasty all the same. You won't find better this side of Parramatta.
