Personally, I've not posted a single update which I shared with only specific circles. Anybody can inspire me on how to use circles better? (This post is public again!)

Thanks +Nathaniel Bertram If I knew Google+ was coming out, I wouldn't have made an effort in real life to integrate my Birmingham friends with London friends with other friends etc etc!!! Now I regret my friends know each other!

Problem with circles: +Roger Planes is my friend and also a developer. So he's in my "friends" circle and "dev" circle. Similarly I'm in his "friends" circle and "dev" circle. However, when I view my "dev" stream, lots of his personal stuff comes up! But I only want to check out what's new on, c#, say. This is a problem as long as overlapping circles exist.

Easiest solution - don't be friends with developers :p

With so few people on Google+, circles are completely pointless.

Exactly what +Ben Brady was just saying (and I was thinking!). Bit boring really. I want them to roll out the business pages soon - that should make it a bit more interesting.

Am I the only one who doesn't like the page layout of the circles page? It would be much better if the contacts were the left and the circles on the right. Our browser windows are generally wider than taller!

I wonder when google buzz is going to be phased out/integrated? Personally I can't wait.

We didn't stay here but reserved 2 mats over email weeks before we arrived in Font. When we arrived to pick them up, we learnt that they only had small mats left (they explained to us all the big mats were taken by people staying here). The mats were very thin, very small, very old, and one of them had broken straps so was difficult to carry. We didn't have any choice because it was Easter and many mat renting places had rented out all the mats (we contacted a few). Luckily we hired a big mat elsewhere later, but this could have ruined our holiday - these mats were really not very useful at all, you don't want to boulder using just them. The hostel staff was perfectly nice about it, and gave us a discount (5 euros each mat rather than 8 euros, which isn't that much considering these mats were really rubbish). But this is no way to do business. No credibility! Very disappointing...

My colleague lost her phone here last year and this year my backpack (with a laptop in it) was nicked so evidently thieves are operating here.

The katsu was very thickly battered and badly fried (oil likely not hot enough). The beef noodles were very nice though. Lovely atmosphere and nice service!

You can tell this is a really well-managed store. If you compare this store with some other outdoor stores nearby, the difference is striking. It's got a really good range of products, the layout changes a lot, but is always clear. But most importantly, I really like the staff here. The staff here are genuinely nice and helpful. They are neither like Snow+Rock staff who patronise you with their opinion on what you should get, nor Cotswolds staff who really don't know what they are talking about. Everyone here seems to be friendly, earnest, honest, but also really knowledgeable about outdoor stuff. Every time I'm in this store, someone helps me. Every time I'm in Cotswolds, all the staff are helping the customers buying the most expensive waterproof boots they will wear once. If you are planning to get out of M25 once in your life time to do some walking in the woods, maybe with the dreadful possibility of getting wet, then go to Cotswolds, and buy a waterproof jacket, and maybe a pair of boots. But if you are serious about any outdoor pursuit, Ellis Brigham is a better bet.

I visit this restaurant so often that I feel it is high time I wrote something for one of the best Vietnamese restaurants in London. This unassuming venue beats many of its more upmarket competitors in terms of the quality of food. The summer rolls are a must-try. The beef pho, gio, beef in betel leaves, and the vermicelli salads are all fantastic. The mixture of fresh chilli, lime juice and herbs will create an explosion of flavours in your mouth. My mouth is watering now that I'm thinking about it. This down-to-earth restaurant has a special ambience that only the buzzy and crowded street eateries in Saigon or Hanoi would possess. Dining here is not only appealing to one's taste buds, but also an experience that stimulates all your senses - the noise, the décor, the fantastic smell of gorgeous food. It is unforgettable.
