Classic G+ will be gone on 24th of January

I'm really worried what will happen after that. Last time I tried new layout, I couldn't see posts from people who I interact most. There were posts from people who I hadn't circled or followed and that weren't even near my interests.

Hiding comments on posts? It's nice that somebody else thinks this for me what should be shown and what should be hidden.

Less white space and picture zoom? Last time there were enormous white space and all photographers were gone...

Bring already back the flowing stream from G+ early days and let me decide whose posts/comments I see.
From better commenting, to showing you more of what matters, to bringing back Events, we’re making a bunch of improvements to Google+ based on your feedback.

Got some books

Latest acquisitions onto my bookshelf. Some practical hints into cybersecurity with penetration testing and incident response. Rtfm is pretty good command cheat sheet. Worth checking out if you're into cybersecurity.

Do you have any recommendations for other noteworthy books in the field?

Kellomies

I traded this beauty away on Monday. Really reliable Valjoux 7750 movement and sturdy build on this chronograph made this limited edition watch pretty great. Limited to 50 units, this might be pretty hard to find.

Efficiency in action

Huge sinkhole got fixed in under a week... Can't understand how they planned this and implemented it in such tight schedule.
 
Five days of round-the-clock work to repair the huge sinkhole in Fukuoka. That's pretty quick by any standard. The machines are running round the clock; I guess they had rotating crews.

Via a private share.

They better not screw it up (they will). They already have the Major too overdressed...

Ronja, the Robber's daughter

While I don't have Amazon Prime, this is pretty great! I didn't even know that Ronja has been made by Ghibli! Gotta find it somewhere...
Gillian Anderson will narrate the 26-episode series "Ronja, the Robber's Daughter."

Declassified Intelligence Cartography

As a map enthusiast I approve this.

HOLY CRUD, THIS IS AMAZING
To mark the 75th anniversary of its Cartography Center, the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) shared decades of declassified maps.

Glass dragon

Glass art has always been one of my favorites, this really neat video shows how much craftmanship each piece takes.
 
Cool, or hot!
Watch a master glassblower make an intricate dragon

And in practice! The Cap wasn't mandatory, so probably everybody didn't take the offer... But there were many caps visible today :D

Watched Trading Places yesterday

Two ruthless millionaires place bet that they can ruin one man's life and make another man successful with some of their help. Soon these two find out how life is when you end up in poverty or have practically everything.

Good script, good acting and lots of comedy moments. Very entertaining movie. Not for smallest family members. Recommended.
