If you're a Gmail user you'll probably already know, thanks to the email Google sent around, that starting this week Gmail will suggest you Goole+ people as recipients without exchanging email addresses.
What emails will I recieve from other Google+ Users?
By default settings, other users can contact you Once until you reply to them, thereby sharing your email address.
How will I know which emails are not from my google contacts?
Emails from people outside your circles will be filtered into a new Social category in your Gmail inbox (if enabled).
Where can I change which Googl+ users can contact me?
A new setting can be found in the settings section of your Gmail on the "General" tab.
Where can I get more information?
At current you can get more information from the Google support section on Emailing Google+ connections

So, I've been having issues installing Office 365 University specifically on a new install of Windows 7.
I've tried the fix it solutions by microsoft but have still been resulting in the same error.
So, I checked the error logs and found the installer was having an issue downloading i641033.cab with the following message:
2014/01/03 01:22:19:909:: Error: Type: WinHttpQueryDataAvailable: failed Http Request has no data: Last error: 0x00002ee2.
WinHttpQueryDataAvailableFailed ErrorCode: 12002(0x2ee2). File http://officecdn.microsoft.com/DB/12345-67890-ABC-XYZ/Office/Data/15.0.4551.1011/i641033.cab download failed. (note: not exact link)
So naturally, I hit the link and downloaded the file, then placed it in the temp dir at %TMP%
New error message:
2014/01/03 01:33:15:969:: Dirty machine detected: registry entries present but path does not exist: C:/Program Files/Microsoft Office 15/ClientX64/integratedoffice.exe
This file is found in the cabinet, so I extracted the contents of i641033.cab to C:/Program Files/Microsoft Office 15/ClientX64 and tried the installer again.
While slowly making progress, the installer is now working.
After several hours of waiting on my poor internet connection (less than 1MB for some reason), the download finally finished and i was presented with the installation complete video that office has.
So, to sum it up, check your error logs (bootstrap.log) in the %TMP% folder to find the files to manually download, download them and put in the right places and office setup will continue. (Or grab the initial file from the Files/Uploads section here (1.87Mb)

So, i've spent the past week or so getting my head around the new Google+ Signin code.
So, this leads me on to getting frustrated, a lot. And getting a bit further, then getting frustrated again.
All I wanted was a unique ID, and an email address from Google so I could use these to authenticate an existing user in a system.
Could i find any documentation on this? Nope.
Most documentation leads somewhere along to https://developers.google.com/+/ or similar, or leads to the OAuth documentation.
Now the OAuth documentation was a great help Not!
I kept getting errors stating I was missing an origin, when after reading the class files, there was no way to set an origin. So anyway, I carried on getting annoyed and kept on trying.
Now, eventually I got there (which I guess you assumed, as I wouldn't want to post on here how I failed at understanding some sample code.. that wouldn't look too great)
And I got somewhere.
I even went to the lovely task of putting how far I got on github https://github.com/ganey/gplus-quickstart-php
I hope it's useful to some people as a starter for getting the information in PHP, rather than getting all bogged down in all the client side bits. The code will need modification, and securing, and shouldn't be use production as is. However it should provide a start for others to work from to get Google+ profile information in PHP which can be used however you want.

So, i've started working with the Google Plus O-Auth stuff, which some quick start guides can be found here: https://developers.google.com/+/quickstart/php
It was going rather well initially, then I started getting some 500 errors which weren't appearing in the error log.
Now being an administrator has its benefits, as I went and checked the Apache logs to find the cause of this error.
Right, before you spend forever being tired, getting frustrated and rackin your brain at why it isn't working, think for a moment. 500 Errors are pretty much permission related issues.
The information you need: Change the permissions on your directory.
If your following demo code its this one:gplus-quickstart-php
Put it at a maximum of 555 (
chmod 555 gplus-quickstart-php). Voila! Working.

Category: MediaSo bitcoins have spiked again. This is slightly to do with Mt.Gox having a 0% fee for black friday weekend this year (2013).
I know I said I gave up on them, but with the prices hitting well over £500 GBP each, it does get tempting.
Unfortunately, my rig just cant get into the game anymore, even at 700MH/s most pools don't even give me out any work. So therefore i'm stuck mining Litecoins, or various other AltCoins which can be traded on Cryptsy.com.
On an upside, I stumbled across an amount of NMC (NameCoins) I had previously stored away to buy some .bit domains. These arent worth a whole BTC, but something is better than nothing.
I guess it's time to start digging through those old hard drives to find those wallet.dat files and hope I get lucky! (and because I don't throw technological stuff away, I won't end up like this unlucky guy who threw out a hard drive which had £4 million GBP worth of bitcoins on it).
