How do I search in the G+ app??

Anyway, wanted to ask about the theme: widget is dark, but when app opens, it's light. Can widget and app share the same theme?

Works as advertised, allows https://github.com/docwhat/itsalltext/ to be used with gmail.
Old Compose is a 100% FREE Google Chrome & Firefox Browser Extension that restores your Gmail to its old, beautiful compose settings

Well put. The Plone Foundation should have a cloud run in this way specifically for every member to blog. Would be an excellent example.

Good grief, how do they manage this? The Home, End, Ctrl-Pgup, Ctrl-Pgdn keys are all broken in G+.
Home and End are just dead; the Pg keys don't switch browser tabs.

It's crazy-making. Some days I think it's the MS that's making me fail; other days I just hope I'll eventually find a way out of this rabbit hole.

Plone and Javascript. I think I'm not the only one getting frustrated when I get the task involving some Javascript sorcery in Plone. It's also just crazy impossible to find some front end developer t...

Tried to install Ubuntu 13.10 this weekend. Generous helpings of #fail . Nothing worked, from keyboard detection to drive partitioning and formatting. At first "Try Ubuntu" worked, but after a failed attempt to install, it stopped working (ended with unresponsive blank desktop).

Finally walked over to a PC and got the 12.04 install image on my USB key. Now installation actually worked.

Very glad to have a functioning OS again. Everything feels very nice, but I'm going to have to get a proper window manager.
