Does this mean I can't use them to hold up my desk anymore?

#SaveGoogleReader  

Wow! The writing has been on the wall for a while since google have focused their effort on G+. However it still feels like a major kick in the gut. It's where I spend 90% of my time when consuming content. In fact this is probably my last major link to Google as I move to another RSS reader. They have been shortsighted with this product right from the get go and treated their users extremely poorly. So much potential just thrown away. I ranted about all this when they killed the local commenting and sharing so I won't jump into that fight again. There will be plenty of very angry posts over the next little while.

Probably won't be posting to G+ either anymore as I focus on where most of my social community gather. It's been a fantastic product even with the little support it has had internally and I truly hope someone else picks up the ball and runs with it.

Actually Joel I was even thinking of being able to add RSS feeds to a circle in the same way you follow another user. It would suddenly turn G+ into Greader....albeit without an efficient view format option.

Yes, Ryan, very much like that article. However they heard these requests loud and clear when they started gutting GReader but they haven't even so much as hinted this is on the horizon. I'm not holding my breath on this one, but would be very pleasantly surprised were they to move in this direction. However my gut tells me that were they even thinking of doing something along these lines then they would have offered some sort of carrot in order to soften the blow for GReader users. Only time will tell I guess. Ironically enough my two most active times on GPlus have been sharing in the misery of the last two cuts to GReader. However Google never responded to even one of the requested features GReader users have passionately thrown their way. As I said, a shameful waste of such potential.

I'm really enjoying Canvas in the Cisco Networking Academy environment.

A good link to an article from Doyle at Network World and some interesting observations on how multi-area OSPF has very little use for the most part with the horsepower of current routers.

If you were going to do this as a one off for changing the IP of a machine you'd have to practice one heck of a lot before these commands would roll off your fingers. However you just can't beat how easy they've made it to script all the properties of windows OS.

You need to use command prompt or power shell in Windows 8 to manage wifi networks now. If you want to see a saved password for a network not in range you can't find them anymore. Quick Google search to find the commands though... I don't understand removing features like that one.

Introduction
Okanagan College -Assoc. Dean of Science, Tech & Health @OkanaganCollege with 20 yrs in IT and a decade of teaching. Passionate about leadership, education, & technology. 

Since Google+ doesn't let us subscribe to available user content/circles that interest us, we obviously have to be explicit about what content we would like to see. So here are many of my interests:
  • Leadership
  • Education (especially Post-Secondary/College)
  • Technology/Gadgets
  • Gaming
  • Hiking, Backpacking & Camping
  • Skiing/Snowboarding/Backcountry Touring
  • Photography
  • Humorous posts & incredible feats
  • Philosophical discussion
Most of my posts are Leadership, Education & IT/Network Engineering/Tech related. However I'm kind of taking a sabbatical from Google's services as many of the decisions they make in terms of user interface and application development no longer align with my daily knowledge wrangling.

Bragging rights
An uncanny ability to catch things as they fall out of cupboards. On the tech side, if there's a bug, I'll probably stumble upon it!
