I hate to say it, but I think it is. For me at least.
I used to love Google+, but a lot of the recent changes has put me off and I'm beginning to wonder, is Google+ dead?

+John Nelson I haven't got a clue what their motivation is mate. But at the moment, I just can't use it.

Both Sony & Xbox networks are going to be under a DDOS attack this Christmas, apparently. One to be aware of if you're a big gamer guys.
Apparently, there's going to be a Sony & Xbox DDOS attack this Christmas, that will take both networks offline. But is it such a bad thing?

A few days ago, I posted about possibly making a forum site for YouTube creators, as there don't seem to be any really good ones out there.

I started work on this around a month ago, and it's now at a stage were I'm happy to show people. So, feel free to take a look at the site, and if you wish, sign up. The address is: http://yousoup.net

Feel free to fire any feedback to me in here, good or bad, it goes towards making the site better, or tearing it down in the community doesn't want/need a site like this.

Thanks guys!

Question  - 
 
As well as a YouTube creator, I'm also a web designer, and I've been thinking about creating a set of YouTube Creator Community forums. Would this interest anyone here?

Don't worry admins, I'm not going to post a link or anything, just looking to see if it's something people would be interested in.

+The SwankiestGamer that's what I'm hoping to do with YouSoup. I've just fired you a request on Skype. We can talk more on there.

I Love Motorcycling Because...

Anyone who knows me will know that I pretty much live and breath motorbikes, and I have done ever since I got my first little 125cc Suzuki back in 2003. 12 years on, I've had a number of bikes. But as time has gone by, I've grown to love being on my bike now, more than I ever have.

So, why do I love motorcycles? It would be easier to list what I don't like about them - NOTHING. But that's not what this post is about. Rather than listing all the things I love, I'm going to give you an example instead.

Back in June, my Granddad unfortunately passed away, due to cancer. I was very close to him, we would go out for a drink every Friday night, and it was him that actually got me into motorbikes when I was a kid. The last bike he owned was a Douglas Dragonfly 350cc horizontal twin. Beautiful bike.

The morning after he passed, I had to get away. We are a close family, but we're not an emotional family. We don't kiss, we don't cuddle, we're strong & silent people. I was starting to break though (I'm tearing up typing this, even now). I had to get out of there, so I did what any biker would do - I headed to the garage, I put my gear on, and off I went.

I didn't have a destination in mind, I just wanted - no, scrap that - I NEEDED to ride. I headed into Wales, and what started out as a quick ride to clear my head, turned into nearly 8 hours of some of the best riding I've ever experienced, covering nearly 300 miles. No phone, no Facebook, no people; just me and the bike.

When I finally got home, my head was clear and I was ready to help the rest of my family through it. I just needed to sort myself out first. I know my granddad would have done the same if he could.

You see, riding a motorbike can be all about the speed, it can be all about the fun, all about the touring, or all about the community. But on this day, it was all about me, my bike, and the open road. It was better than any therapy. You just can't get that feeling from any other machine, not in my option at least.

I always wear a camera when I ride, and this day one was no different. The video below is a compilation of that ride.

The guys at World Motorcycle Community want to know why I love motorcycles. Hopefully this answers your question guys. I hope you enjoy the video...

Do you guys think that Google+ is dead/dying? Unfortunately, for me, I think it is. :(

What the f**k has Google done to G+? The new design is a disgrace. Everything seems to be hidden away and more difficult to find. That's the reason I'm not really on here any more. I find the whole thing taxing.

Perfect example. I just went to post this on my profile, only to find that it had remembered my last post to a community and automatically posted it there. Seriously, why is that even a feature?

I think it might be time for me to say goodbye to G+.

+Kev Quirk yeah agreed, google has somewhat killed the community feel. Hell have you tried to see someones profile now, you can't even tell who is who anymore. Again, still the best social media still available. That said with the US government passing CISPA against the will of the people, not sure how long any social media can last here.

I've heard talk that both the Playstation & Xbox networks are going to be hit with a DDOS attack this Christmas, ans it's set to last for a whole week.

So people with kids who are obsessed with computer games might have a rough time this Christmas!

More info:

New video just gone live - why do people post deliberately controversial subject, just to get likes?

I am the creator of Motorbike Community, an online community site that brings bikers from all over the world, together.

I can usually be found hanging around here talking all matters of geekery with my fellow geeks.

When I'm not geeking it up in my personal time, I can be found geeking it up in the office. I'm a Cyber Security Analyst for Hewlett Packard Enterprise.

Aside from geeking I also have a fascination with body art (tattoos) and I love nothing more than to chill out with a nice cold beer and my guitar.

How many times did I use the word geek in this intro??
