"You’re out of storage space and will soon be unable to send or receive emails until you free up space or purchase additional storage."

How did that happen? A bit annoying....

Just saw a bookmark to Orkut.com - was looking through some old folders in my browser. I had forgotten that Google closed Orkut so all the users would migrate to Google+. I wonder where they all went .......

Oh, there they are

Yeah that one. They were going to demolish it 3 years back when I move out of Chelmsford.

So what's going to replace it?

Although this will no doubt have a knock-on effect and actually make the web more mobile friendly, it is not actually changing anything immediately, is it? It is just pointing more people to the parts of the web that are already mobile friendly, and ignoring (downgrading in Google search) those that are not. But webmasters will eventually toe the line!

Just deleted all videos on Google drive, then realised that they did not count towards my quota, so made no difference!

One of the most popular new posts on Great Baddow for some time is the news of another barbers shop opening. People just cannot get enough of barbers! Maybe the offer of FREE haircuts (it was today only, sorry, you're too late!) was why it was so popular.
A new Turkish barber shop opens today (27th June) in the Vineyards - GoodFellas Barber Shop, "The Art of Turkish Barbering". To celebrate their opening day

"Adding in 3D support apparently means an extra 2g in weight over the BP350’s 85g but that still means the BP550 feels very light in the hands."

Why mention this in a review? Do people tend to carry their Blu-ray players around with them now?

Feature article and web content writer
Introduction
I was raised in rural Essex, close to Chelmsford, and not much happened in the first 18 years of my life. 

In 1992 I headed off to Preston to learn Astrophysics ..... in 1993 I went to Coventry where I studied Geography. This was much nicer to study, less maths and more research and writing. I spent one year working at  the Forestry Commission's Alice Holt Research Station in Farnham.

In 1997 I graduated and decided to head to the big smoke where I spent 12 years working in the investment banking and global custody industry. I worked for Lloyds, RBS, Nomura, Henderson and BNP Paribas. 

A 2009 a company restructure saw my job move to Scotland; I was made redundant in July. I decided to take the plunge and started working for myself. My initial plan was to be a web designer while building up my content website. However, the content sites grew quicker than anticipated so I focused more time on these for a while. 

I became a content specialist and suddenly found my writing work to be in demand so started writing for some web marketing agencies. After doing this for around a year I decided to start my own writing business and Wade's Words was formed.

I love my work. I spend my days researching new articles and stories - doing the things that I enjoy for the first time since I left University in 1997!

My ambition? To write something good. I mean, really good. Something that I can be proud to tell everybody about, although ideally everybody will already know about it ... stay tuned. One step towards this goal was to do a Writing Fiction course. Writing factual articles comes pretty easy - fiction is the real challenge.
Bragging rights
I work for myself and enjoy my work.

Been here a few times now and it always pleases. Fondest memories are the mini cottage pies for starters and the lamb. Nice atmosphere, a quiet and relaxed place with good food and drinks.

Went there for the first time in January 2014 and very impressed. First time in years I had my teeth cleaned and shined without any pain too. Five star service.

A very tranquil cemetery that is well maintained. Perfect place for some quiet reflection and remembrance.

Great martial arts club. Both my kids do karate here and they both absolutely love it. Friendly teachers, well equipped, clean and with changing rooms. Plenty of parking too.

Excellent venue for kids parties and hosts social and fitness clubs too. I am not a member but have used it on several occasions and it is always welcoming.

Have been going to Weymouth for my summer hols for several years now and we always visit the Spice Ship. In fact, after my last trip I found seven receipts in my wallet. Good food, good sized portions, good beer, good rear garden with play area for kids. Friendly staff.
