Google made an arty version of my picture from the garden this evening.

The new Photos is a bit different. I'll explore more later

I know some of my G+ friends tried Tsu a while back. There have been a few changes recently, so it may be worth another look.

+Kate Russell I saw you joined. I'd be interested in what you think of it now. It's still a fairly small fish in the social network sea, but they are doing interesting things.
I know a lot of people have inactive #Tsu #children. I certainly do. I think it's time to bring some of them back. If you can reach them by other means (in person, on Facebook), then let them know what has changed recently and encourage them to give it another go. I would mention: 1. You can make you feed open to the web now. Tsu is no longer a walled garden 2. You can donate or transfer small amounts. So even if you only made a few cents you ca...

Just had my best ever daily earnings. I think this may be due to them correcting for underpaying on other days, but it's still a nice boost. I'm actually making dollars per week now. You don't need to be a megastar to make something

We were watching an episode of the old sitcom To The Manor Born where there was a scene at the station. It seemed odd that they had blurred a poster in the background. Then it struck me that it might feature Mr Saville and sure enough, here it is. 

Do we need to censor things from the past that feature bad people? This man was on TV a lot in my youth, but it seems those shows cannot be shown again due to his crimes. Do we rewrite the past to pretend he never existed?

To use a cliche, it seems like a slippery slope.

I'm inspired by +Robert Llewellyn 
#Inspirational #renewables on #Orkney. They are making more energy from #wind, #solar (even up there) and waves than they need. Previously they had to run big diesel generators. Lots of technology being tested up there where conditions can be extreme, but it should spread to other places. I want to run a car that's powered by the wind! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FXe1hBvlylw

I like the concept of +Nerdalize radiators that contain a server to heat your home. It's processing for someone else. They vent excess heat.

The article covers some larhe scale projects too. We need to reduce waste everywhere.
All computers produce heat, but computer servers produce a lot of heat - why isn't this used to keep homes and offices warm?

I was listening to the GAK podcast today and they mentioned that the Zoom people had been in the shop. They mentioned a G4 pedal, but didn't give any details. Has anyone heard anything about this?

What features would like like in a new multi-fx?

I'd like MIDI or some other way to control it. That would allow adding multiple expression pedals and easier patch switching if you could attach something like a Behringer FCB1010
Professional and ultra-flexible MIDI foot controller; 10 banks of presets, each with 10 fully user-editable presets; 2 expression pedals with freely assignable MIDI channel, controller number and range; Simultaneous transmission of 5 MIDI program change commands and 2 MIDI controllers per preset ...

I was pondering who uses Tsu. I think it's like G+ in some ways, except nobody came here to make money. Having a good following here could be good for your Googlability. I think different networks have different demographics, but I can't say I have empirical evidence. Bah, I'm rambling again ;)
Is #Tsu ready for my mum? Probably not in her case as she's not a big computer user and not even on Facebook. So who is using it? I was thinking about what sort of people are currently on here. Obviously we have the early adopters and social media specialists who will try anything new. They will put up with all sorts of issues if they think it has some future. I mainly fall into this camp. We also have the 'get rich quick' crowd who were lured ...

My son wanted to try this game, Octodad Dadliest Catch. I've not tried many games on Linux. I think the PC should be up to it, but all I get is the loading screen and then the PC locks up, whilst playing the music. Any ideas?

Some thoughts about today's big change on Tsu. I'm interested to see how sites develop.

I never liked that Tsu was a walled garden. They have given us the option to open up. That makes it a more useful site. 

As I've said before, it's a great site for artists as you can get paid for being there and income is always an issue. There's also the possibility of people sending you tips (the money sort) or buying your art with Tsu dollars they have earned there.

I'm making a couple of dollars a week by doing what I would here or on Twitter. People who can build a big following can make considerably more.
This is big! #Tsu is now visible to the world and to search engines (if you want). I didn't like that it was a #WalledGarden before as public posts should be truly public. This means you can use it as a #blogging site (although I think it lacks RSS) and share links to posts on other sites without people having to join up to read them. It could also increase the number of views you get and so potentially increase what you can make. Other sites ke...
