Front Line News with David Horne SUS-160422-121044001

A stitch in the fabric of time

The celebrations of 950 years of Norman rule are gathering pace. Before you know it the town will once again be swamped with ‘Normans’, who will as always vanquish the gathered Saxon hordes. I’m talking about 1066 re-enactment of course and not some forthcoming Apocalypse. Violent death is a terrible thing, as is the forced occupation of another country, but the events of 1066 are so far removed from modern day life that it all passes off as just a bit of fun.

Meet the new Google+

Google+ has had a bad rep over the years and yes it has been years. 5 years in fact. Despite stories to the contrary, it has remained and has been actively developed by Google. Google must be fairly confident they have a good product, because the open beta for the new and improved Google+ has just become opt out, instead of opt in. Also it is now officially a core product for Google Apps for Work.
