Google+ has replaced my SEO-friendly Google Profile URL with a bunch of numbers. Hope (a) they're handling the redirect correctly, and (b) this eventually reverts to the old URL.

Upgraded MacBook Pro RAM from 4 to 8 GB. Huge performance benefit. Apple should make 8 GB standard. Next up: Swap hard drive for SSD.

After reading and dismissing a series of Google+ notifications on my laptop, why do I have to dismiss them all again in the Android client? Bug or WAD? Yes, I know this is what the Send Feedback button is for.

Aha. I saw Vic's post yesterday and didn't make the connection with my issue - thought he was talking about email notifications. The issue does seem to be fixed today.
