Beautiful photos.  Now I must have that wide angle!   Want to hear about the ballooning and Capadochia/Ephessos.  Funny note to the previous comment: Henry's Pappou Yanni, great Pappou Nicolaos, and Great Great Pappou Ioannis were in the Greek Army or Navy.  You guys represent World Peace.  :)   Luv, Mom

"So the Target philosophy towards expecting parents is similar to the first date philosophy? Even if you’ve fully stalked the person on Facebook and Google beforehand, pretend like you know less than you do so as not to creep the person out."

This is pretty similar to the turmoil Google had over how to roll out face recognition software for photos. The technology has been around for a while, but we had a lot of trouble finding a way to make that available without it feeling creepy. (And I'm really proud of what we ultimately released for this.)

Hey friends who work at Google,

I've already submitted this as "feedback", but since I have no way to know if anyone is actually reading that (why doesn't it give you a bug # or something so you can follow up?).... I'm hoping that you can get this noticed by someone on the correct team so I can continue to using Google Docs to write latex. (Which is awesome for collaboration BTW...)


It appears that after there have been 100 actual misspellings in a document, google docs starts marking words over 12 characters long as incorrect, even if they are spelled correctly. This does not appear to affect shorter words. Also, you can temporarily fix it by retyping the word, but the issue returns upon refreshing the page.
Thanks to +Andy Konwinski and +Beth Trushkowsky for procrastinating the morning away helping me narrow down the issue!

I just noticed that this bug has been fixed (at least for my 26K word Google document). Also, it seems to be very smart about ignoring tokens that are not supposed to be words (e.g. latex notations like "$\beta T$" aren't being marked as misspellings). Thanks Google, the turn around time on this was very impressive!
