So, G+ has gone crazy. Every couple minutes it's displaying, "154 new posts", "57 new posts", etc. When I click on it, it errors out. And there are ZERO new posts. ☹ #gplusproblems

I do not like that Google+ is putting posts into my All stream by people who are not in my circles. ☹ #googlefuckup

I think Google is having difficulty in the number of servers and storage they have made available for G+. And with the grade C changes being made to G+ and the poor designs being approved, I'm inclined to believe that this project has been moved to a back burner. ☹

Anyone have any experience with nearby oil wells and saltwater injection? There's a small oilfield 'bout ½ mile away that is applying to begin the injection of saltwater into these wells. They aren't "fracking" and it doesn't seem like a lot: "maximum rate of 150 bbls per day at 400psig".

I've reviewed the State and Federal law on this and while safeguards are legislated, how does anyone know if they're being followed? These wells are all located at the headwaters of what becomes a major source of drinking water for this portion of the State.

If you've experience with this sort of thing, any direction, information, advice, or help would be greatly appreciated.

Nice screw-up, #Google  

So I get up and I see the Blue Box with 70 new posts in this stream overnight. Great! I can catch up on what my friends around the world are doing. But, NO. I get to see ~10 and then Google+ skips back across days, ignoring the other ~60 posts from last night.

HOW DO I GET TO SEE THOSE? #badgoogle

Exactly. Yesterday myself and a friend were just about to relaunch the "FB is crap, follow us to this new place" campaign among our mutual acquaintances but I'm holding off til things like this get ironed out.

Google must be running our local G+ stuff through their new GoogleFiber network North of here: every attempt to check a Notification generates an "error contacting server, try again" message. ☹

Why don't browsers have an "Update Window every X minutes" option? #dagnabit

I'll bet a clever JavaScript programmer could make an add-on for it!

Google has taken the stream I follow the most, my String circle stream, and turned it into an All stream. All posts to any circle show up in my String stream as of yesterday. If I go to any other circle and view just its stream, it only shows the posts by people in that circle.

I never used the All stream as in does not show all the posts by everyone in every circle. Even with each circle's setting to (originally) all and (currently) to more, monitoring the All stream only displays about 25% of the posts people I've circled make.

Now Google has decided that since I spend 99% of my time in my String circle, I must have meant for it to be an All stream and have polluted it with postings from every circle. For me, the solution is simple: I've deleted all of my other circles. I can get the information and personal interaction I was getting via my other circles through industry sponsored sites and sites like Tumblr and Twitter.

As +Jason Simmons has ranted, and I agree, whoever is driving the changes at Google+ seem to be purposefully running it into the ground. Besides, Google seems to be making more money by mining our posts here and our email content on gMail. Hopefully the current court cases against Google on these issues will continue to go against them. (These judgements are part of the reason for the recent privacy changes the users of Google products have been notified about over the past few days.)

Yes, I am a big fan of social networks, but to be constantly "challanged" to relearn what I was using yesterday is just ridiculous.  I would be very upset if I started knitting a pair of socks one day and the pattern changed the next day.  #GoogleNeedsToListen

Anyone else suddenly getting "Google+ page unresponsive" errors in chrome? The error box appears, sets for a moment or two, then disappears. No problem with the Google+ page and notifications are appearing and the stream keeps flowing. #google
