I now own the most expensive compact camera on the market +sony +rx1. Albeit a secondhand model. But will it always accompany me with my smartphone? Time will tell. http://wp.me/p3WTdN-55

OK, JM, I've found a hack for the custom url thing. I've now got https://plus.google.com/+Fragspawn. I did this by making my first and last name a substring to the url I wanted, then just added a letter to complete the URL. But an alert comes up, telling you you can only change your name an unknown limit of times...

Good luck
JP

PS, and logout between the first and second time you change your name...
 
My custom Google+ URL (+psynix) was not approved. No explanation given. Apparently I have to use my real name.

Synthetic friendships. Crowding out real ones.
 
Is this what we have become?

Install grub boot loader during Ubuntu install. Ensure installer sees win8 partition and dual booting is possible.
 
I've recently bought a new laptop with Windows 8. I've partitioned my HDD and turned off Safe-Boot and tried to install Linux; if I boot from USB it skips, although reads on 7, and will install. I've tried Ubuntu, Kubuntu and Xubuntu, along with Arch and Zorin. However if I run the Wubi installer and then reboot it starts, gets to the black screen and just sits there blank- should I leave it?

After this recent change I may run Wubi on a spare partition (I have 3), just to verify. Anything I should do, guys and gals?

Botched the firmware install script, and lost my phone settings, but on the plus side, I have 4.3 Jelly Bean on the trusty ol' galaxy nexus!
