Trever McGhee75,039Please accept my apologies if your one of the few that got hit by a bug in their system!This is my first event and for some reason Google notified some people 20 times and for some their system was planning on doing that within their calendars for the next 5 years...every single day...20 times a day...how it did or why it would set peoples calendars up to be notified 20 times a day...I don't know.Hopefully they've got it corrected, if not please let me know.I know I wanted to help peoples wishes come true but not in that way,The goal of this event my Birthday is give you as many of my Birthday Wishes as you require...why because you deserve it.My wish is here is to connect you to the thoughts/ the energy of thousands of people around the world all making a Birthday Wish for themselves from the heart... to you.I like to Imagine the energy from all those making a wish and the energy coming from the ones that come true(the smiles..the laughter..the tears...the overflowing of pure joy) being connected to you to power your own wish to come true.Thanks to some theories about Quantum Physics there's no space between you or me or them...topped with the fact they tell us energy is never destroyed, it's gotta go somewhere as each new person joins in, so why not to you to empower your wish to come true sooner rather than later.Imagine being connected to thousands....millions of others all making wishes...all hoping that your wish comes true for it will help empower their wish.They've documented several cases of where positive thoughts have made a difference, so why not around someones birthday who can then share it with everyone whose connected to that person...so me for this event.It's never been done before, so why not now....be part of it. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain as we go day by day, year by year building this community of wish granters.Now think of an image that represents your wish and then take2seconds to think of that image at least once a day until it comes true.Have fun with it, there's no right or wrong way when you come from the heart.Please let us know as each wish comes true...yes each wish...there's no law that says you're only granted one wish...you deserve everyone of them when they come from the heart..when that wish fills you with the passion for life...*****UPDATE at first I was focused on getting as many people as possible for this so that everyone had more energy but now after reading your comments..hearing your passion for life...the numbers have gone completely out the window for each one of you have brought your own unique energy to the equation that's priceless....THANK YOUIn my world Birthday wishes can be made everyday of the year because it's a celebration everyday that your here to share this with.So today I Celebrate being 44 aUpdate to fix Google Bug for "It's My Birthday and my wish is for your wishes to come true!!"2012-08-17 12:00:00205

Dallas McMillan7,412Circle from the land downunder - Australia's top 200 PlussersWho are Australia's most followed people on Google Plus?I've put together this circle of Australia's top 200 profiles (by follower numbers - not engagement - some aren't particularly active) on Google Plus.It's pretty interesting to see the types of profiles which make the cut.Here is my quick overview:By far the most dominant characteristic of the top 200 are photographers - professional and amateur.The other notable individuals are a couple of cricketers in the top 10, a smattering of celebrity chefs, musicians, writers, artists, models and other celebrities.There are also fair numbers of Google employees, IT workers, social media and marketing types as well as a decent number of scientists and mathematicians. The only politician I noticed was Malcolm Turnbull - the Prime Minister and Leader of the opposition are conspicuous by their absence.I got the list from +CircleCount http://www.circlecount.com/au/profileslist/ and I've made a few tweaks - removing a couple of profiles that were inactive or had moved away from Australia. There were a number of others which probably don't belong as they now work in the USA or elsewhere.  #australia   #australianphotographers   #circleshare  I've notified members of the circle - let me know if you don't want to be listed.2013-08-04 14:24:522009213

You certainly did deliver.The circle contains a bunch of people who I was already following, but a wealth of freshly undiscovered goodness for me as well. In total, 436 Awesome Aussies waiting to fill your stream with all sorts of goodness. It's got photogs, geeks, writers, a kiwi (ANZACs all the way), expat Aussies living abroad and a couple of long-term Aussie residents who won't admit to being Australian :)I'd like to make special mention to the following people for making this circle possible.The Resharers+Mz Maau  +Giuseppe Basile +Starway Paul +JPG Photo Gallery  +Daryl Hunt +Jim Munro +Brad Chasenore +Annie Yim +Rose T +Rob E +James Fridley +Gerardine Rudolphy +Christopher Prins +Charles Strebor +Peter Lake and +Australia Great The Contributors+2012-12-31 22:36:03436692946

Bea Wellman0This is a great circle of people that I enjoy following.  Some of these posters are not for the faint of heart...er I guess that should be "faith" of heart.   My fellow Freethinkers / Atheists / Secular Community / and the obligatory badasses.  I have another circle with more of the same - but this is the circle that tends to share the most.For all of you that are in this circle - thanks for sharing and making me realize what a great community of thought I belong to.2012-06-26 04:14:29496114

Kathryn Crosby19When I returned to G+ for about the third time and tried to actually give it a chance, I found the most frustrating issue was that there are so few active Australians that there are often long dead times while the rest of the world is asleep. Like me, many of the Australians in this circle posted a couple of things in July/August/September, but because no one else seemed to be posting anything they moved away. None the less, having got near enough to 500 Aussies, I figured I should share the circle and add it to the database. Perhaps with a heap of Australian circling going on it will wake things up a bit. I have tried to cull out the wannabe Australians and the completely inactive, but there may have been a few missed out. If I have missed you please feel free to post in the comments and I'll start work on a second Australians circle.2011-11-02 08:55:134993058

Confession: I tried hard to like Inbox, but ... I guess I've spent too much time honing my Gmail skills. What I missed most was the Gmail apps feature that let you swipe left and right for the previous/next message. I liked the Inbox reminders, but ... not enough to compensate for the things I missed.

Finally! A picture of Schroedinger's cat! ... Actually, this is even more puzzling that that shop-worn paradox. Two separate photon streams, one illuminating an object, the other hitting a collector ... and revealing the shape of the object. Action at a distance! How can this be? Reality is broken! .... Or maybe "distance" needs to be rethought.

I have an arts friend visiting on Sunday from interstate, and I cannot believe how difficult it is to find out what gallery exhibitions are on in Adelaide. Yeah, the Art Gallery of SA is there, but ... so far all the other galleries I've checked are closed on Sundays. Bah! Getting desperate for ideas here.

Dear Apple: Free upgrade to Yosemite, you said. It'll be great you said. Then this happened (among other things). Please explain why an "upgrade" needs to remove perfectly working third party software, not to mention resetting or removing previously set preferences. Also, why did I need to install Xcode (2.5GB download) just so I could run make, when it was ALREADY INSTALLED? Fuckers. How about maintaining a little separation between the OS and applications, huh?

The East German system collapsed under the weight of it's own absurdity, as all systems will when they exceed the limits of the rational and sensible. It just takes a while.
As for the West being responsible ... they were caught by surprise, just like everybody else. East Germany was a horrible dictatorship ruled with an iron fist, until, suddenly ... it wasn't. I recall thinking at the time that it was as if the leaders just got old and tired and though, fuck it. And maybe that's the real answer. 
Similar thing with the collapse of the Soviet Union, although there I think Gorbachev just saw the way the wind blew and genuinely believed things would be better with more freedoms. But don't be deluded into thinking this was all about the people's desire for freedom. What they wanted was more consumer goods, more choice. Look at their "free" elections since and you can... more »

A silly question: when my Chromecast is idle, it shows a slideshow of images from the web. That's cool. But when I switch to a regular channel, or turn my TV to standby, I suspect that Chromie is still grabbing those images from the web in the background. 

So, is there a way to "pause" or switch off that behaviour? Or do I need to unplug Chromie?

I have lots of GB/month, so that's not an issue, but it does seem to be a waste of energy.

A question for the maths geeks:

What is the value of the infinite series 1-1+1-1+1-1..... ?

If you stop at any point in the series, the value is either 0 or 1. But as an infinite series, it's either or neither. 

I expect there's a name for this, but I can't find any reference to it. Maybe someone here knows?

There's a perfectly good block-level tag, DIV, that you can use instead of SPAN. And people using your code won't get tripped up by it and wonder wtf is happening. :/

Wow. This is much grittier than I remember. Growing up, back in the day (1965) we really thought the world might end at any moment. Cold war, Cuban missile crisis, assassination of Kennedy -- everything looked like a trigger for World War Three and nuclear annihilation. That sort of thing when you're a child leaves its mark, and it would have been great to see subsequent generations not go through that. But here we are. :(

Not being a Gamer (I find the graphics disappointingly crap), I've avoided this #Gamergate  controversy, but it seems everyone is posting about it now, so ... I decided to read up on it. 

It seems to have started either with gamers objecting to people wanting to change the culture ("Social Justice Warriors" ... and what's wrong with that?) or perceptions of bias in the gamer journals towards said SJW. Neither of these really matters to anyone outside the gamer community, because, let's face it, they're games. Play, enjoy, move on.

What does matter is that things have taken a very nasty turn with online harassment, threats of violence and death (seriously? because they have a difference of opinion?), and publishing of personal details (in order to make good on those threats, presumably). And pretty much exclusively directed at women. (So pretty much a 12-yob... more »

What does matter is that things have taken a very nasty turn with online harassment, threats of violence and death (seriously? because they have a difference of opinion?), and publishing of personal details (in order to make good on those threats, presumably). And pretty much exclusively directed at women. (So pretty much a 12-yo boy thing to do.)

And what's most important about this is the revelation that there isn't really a damn thing anyone can do about it, and it is souring the internets. Yes, victims can go anonymous, but who wants to do that? We're all looking for that 15 seconds of fame. They can go dark, but, fuck you very much, that's a horrible prospect for anyone addicted to the net, plus it's a win for the assholes. They can block people, but often the scumbags are using a fake id anyway, so they can reappear in another profile.

Recent posts by +David Brin and +Yonatan Zunger at least make it clear that G+ people are concerned and thinking about the problem. And I see evidence of a backlash (finally!) against the trolls which may drive them (temporarily) back to their caves. It's good to see so many people declaring their abhorrence of this behaviour.

Bottom line, I think, is that online social platforms are still relatively new, and we have yet to establish the sort of social norms and expectations that stop people from running around naked and randomly hitting people (except at Kings Cross late at night, apparently). Basically, it's the threat  of public shame that prevents most stupid behaviour, and we have not yet learned or established any form of shame on the net. (Maybe instead of just blocking people, we should have some kind of public shaming method ... but no, certain people would consider that a badge of honour.) 

So no, I don't have an answer. But I'm happy to know that those more knowledgeable than I are working on it.___

This! We wants it.

I wonder if it addresses that most pernicious of email problems, the endless thread. You know the one: where people reply to an email and then reply to the replies and so on, and over time the replies actually change topic, without changing the Subject line, and different people reply to the same message, effectively spawning new threads, but the whole mess ends up as one giant tangled thread, with each message containing copies of all or most of the previous.  Probably not. That's a hard problem.

Oh Noes! It's Dr Who night, and this happened: TV coax cable is broked.

I have other cables, but they have two problems: they all have a male connector at one end and a female connector at the other. For reasons unclear, our wall socket and tv both have female sockets. (Actually, makes sense, all sockets should be female.) I guess all my other cables are for connecting one device to another.

Any way, a trip to the store may be required.

And the boy in me can't help but be amused by the categorisation of plugs and sockets as male and female.

Come on Google, you're trying too hard. ... G+ regularly matches posts in my stream to pair those with similar topics, but ... this is ridiculous! (OK, probably coincidence, but you never can quite be sure with Google. +Yonatan Zunger  ?)

Wow. How far we have come in 55 years! My first experience of programming was on a CDC6400, as an undergraduate at Adelaide Uni in 1972. Also my first experience of hacker culture. :)

Today in History: First successful fully-transistorized computer was introduced
On October 16, 1959 — 55 years ago today — the first successful fully-transistorized computer, the “CDC 1604,” was introduced by Control Data Corporation. This computer was the speediest — executing about 100,000 operations per second — and one of the most powerful computers at the time of its introduction. It was designed by Seymour R. Cray, who has been called “the father of supercomputing.” (It was called the 1604 because the original goal was to support 16K of memory and 4 tape drives.)

Interestingly, Cray had the same kind of supportive parents that Ray Kurzweil and Larry Page have both stated they had. Cray’s parents allowed him to use the basement of the family home as his “laboratory,” where by age 10 he had built a device out of Erector Set components that converted punched paper tape into Morse Code signals. Reminiscent of certain descriptions of Steve Jobs, Charles W. Breckenridge said of Cray, “To Seymour, elegance of physical design was as important as reaching the performance goals. In this area also he was unmatched by anyone.”

Gotta love irises. Did you know they have a scent, rather like an Apricot Sponge Pudding. Have a sniff next time you see one. But don't eat it!

You don't realise just how big this stadium is until you see it from Light's Vision. The Colonel used to be looking out over the CBD, but most of it is now obscured.  (Maybe that says something about the size of our CBD?)

8000 views in four months? Fucksamatter with you people? Stop what you are doing and give this a listen, now. It might be the best thing you'll hear all night.

You don't have to go far these days to find good music. I'm still on the sofa, but I may just have to get up and start grooving ... oh, one problem: too short!
