I have a folder on my Google Drive that has a LOT of Kindle books. In the individual book folders there are images of the book covers. Good so far. BUT unfortunately, Google + has picked up all the Images and included them in my photos! 

How can I remove the folder from the image selection process?

Long time coming with this but you are right. There's a setting where you can include Drive photos. Deselected and all is good

So.....My Acer Aspire 5742 has been happily running Ubuntu from day one eighteen months ago. I've just acquired my son's 2009 MacBook Pro and LOVE it so have restored the Acer back to "out of the box" condition for another project. WHAT A NIGHTMARE!!!!!!!

Ubuntu loads up in what, 20 minutes to a fully useable and productive system with Apps.

Spent more than two hours last night feeding the four DVD rescue disks into the machine to find there was a MBR issue. Sorted that and then watched the machine "preparing for first use "and installing all the default bloat ware. Then had to install AVG and a genuine copy of Microsoft Office.  

What a mission! And oh I used a Linux based rescue disk to restore the MBR. Linux WINS again!!!

Go to the BT site for full details. I have made calls on the Nexus but have NOT received any, they seem to go straight to my mobile.

On receiving calls they were audible over the speaker and uses the in built microphone so no headset required.

And indeed, another long term MightyText user here. Excellent piece of SW!

Another Premier Inn under my belt! I like the consistency in quality of the rooms, quiet and comfortable. Food in the attached Beefeater was good. Well located just off the M5.
