I'm glad I spent past Saturday improving the thermal isolation of my roof, the sun is at its maximum radiation and it's currently 35 °C outside.

Wohoo! my previous connection was 1Mbs/512kps at most in a lucky day. An stable 3/1 link is too good for me :)

Very clever use of GIF movies created by uploading similar photos to G+. Bookmarked for my TODO.
I thought this might be relevant to the interests of the archlinux|arm G+ community since it uses both arch arm and G+.  I recently set up a few security cameras around the house and picked up a Raspberry Pi and installed arch on it to manage them.  

Whenever there's movement detected, the cameras upload photos to the Pi through FTP.  I use a script to add the black borders so that it meets the size requirement for G+, add exif data for date/location, and sort by which camera it comes from.  Then grive (https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/grive/) syncs the pictures with my google drive since there's still no official Linux client.

Google+ then does a decent job of sorting pictures for significance since there's a lot of plain shots of my doors.  Auto awesome also makes nice gifs of any motion.

All in all I'm very impressed by archlinux|arm - packages build with relative ease and everything works just like I expected.

My new toy doesn't lost packets anymore, doubled the speed of my old connection, and all the goods only because I'm testing the setup in my couch! Can't wait until morning to move it to the roof :)
