When your IT system is as big as this you don't just get bugs or ghosts in the machine...you get weasels!

#notIdeal
The Large Hadron Collider particle accelerator in Switzerland is offline after suffering a short circuit - caused by a weasel.

As always, +Brian Medeiros​ will approve. "The Darth Maul" has stunning lines, a stealth geek reference to suit any office

I was looking for a non-pocket way of saving stuff to read later only yesterday and today they release an update to +Inbox by Gmail​ and a chrome extension to go with it. Sweet.

Slightly confused why they didn't use Keep but I suppose keep isn't for everyone.

Ps keep is awesome, why aren't you using it already 😇

Would love to see some behind the scenes technical tips on how this was done.  For me I think that would add to the magic but, much like 28 days later, a totally empty city is such an alien concept these days - haunting is a good word
It took 2 months for photographer and filmmaker Mathieu Stern to create his haunting short film "Alone in Paris." That's because it wasn't shot at odd hour

For such a short article it's already got my attention. Can't wait to see if the show they are planning makes it beyond the pilot. Sure it will be a bit of reality TV but the adventure...wow, that's what got me hooked.
After three years in Beijing they decided to broaden their horizons by riding more than 21,000 miles through 22 provinces

A bike with a motor... A motorbike. Obviously. 74 miles at 44mph top speed. Witchcraft!

Love to see cross-over pieces like this.  It seems so obvious once it's pointed out to you but of course dogs understand leadership - it's instinctual.  

Calm and assertive.
Why dogs are the best team players, and what entrepreneurs can learn from them

According to +Trello 73% of productive people drink coffee (obviously!). Plus with their "Babel" update I can now change all the settings to Swedish to force myself to be #language immersed.

#TrelloGlobal
Now officially available in over 20 different languages!

This is nothing short of brilliant news. Sir Terry Pratchett had a couple of treats for us all even after his departure. What an absolute sir!

Dig a little deeper and you see that Mort is to be made into a film as well. Probably my favourite series from the Discworld universe with the Wee Free Men coming in a mighty close second.
Author says he changed his mind about adapting novel without co-author after receiving a posthumous letter from Pratchett asking him to

Random lunchtime detour to The Mortimer Arms. Bean to cup automatic machine but well looked after, not an ideal start for a coffee review hunt but that means more time on the motorbike.

Smokey, though not a bitter taste. Something artificial in flavour, perhaps from the water which seems quite chlorinated locally, but no aftertaste. A smooth and easy cup to enjoy in the sporadic sunshine we've been having. Supplied minted🌿

Spotted a couple of pubs north of here into Romsey that are worth a drive to investigate. Hoping for an espresso machine next time.

Made a bonus stop to see the recently be-plaqued Scott Mills Bridge. It's amazing. Words can't describe it.

I know this will make +Nina Kristensson​ chuckle 😊

Bonus fact, the Scott Mills Bridge shows up on +Google Maps​. Which was nice.

On the expensive side but has a great range, helpful staff, they do samples and they have some really unusual items in stock as well - certainly worth stopping by for ideas and it looks like they have access to tradespeople as well

Awesome view, a bit more than your normal fish and chips but the burgers are fantastic and they have lots of local food and fish specialties; like the Noisy Lobster (though ring in advance if you are after something special as they can get busy)

Good coffee, nice staff. Quaint old house set right back from the road, wonderfully quiet with lovely gardens in the middle of the New Forest.

The sales guy was honest and respectful, not pushy. Listened to what we had to say, showed us relevant information and looking forward to going back (what a weird thing to say for a car showroom) once the new V90 is released. Ps the place does get pretty warm when the sun is out

Super helpful staff, really appreciate the time they gave us. Found the right products and helped get it loaded as well. Definitely coming here first next time.

Has some genuinely cosy nooks and crannies to hide away on a rainy day with a pint and some good friends. Food is pretty good casual stuff and they had "Marmalade Ale" on tap - had to give that a try!

Super helpful staff. Good range of gear from boots to bikes. Got my eye on one of the Indians they have in the showroom but for now they're servicing my current bike and doing a great job. Gonna keep going back!
