+Historic Scotland publishes an online catalogue of their collections

This should be of interest to my history-buff friends. I should point out that so far the arms and armour collection, which is of most interest to me, is still somewhat lacking but I'm hopeful this will improve with time.

Google finally brings some much needed love to your contacts list

words and lyrics by Jean-Loup

The revamp is still a preview but it works quite well.

Reshared post from +Bradley Horowitz

Big launch for the team today!  We've hugely improved Google Contacts.  The once tedious task of "managing" your contacts on Google has been made a lot easier, more intelligent… and more beautiful…  The launch is still a 'preview', so go to contacts.google.com/preview, check it out, and let them know what you think!

words and lyrics by Jean-Loup

Just when you thought this government couldn't get any worse, they introduce a TV levy to replace the TV Licence payable by everyone regardless of whether you even own a television.

Given how the BBC is now a well known channel for government propaganda, this is a pretty good indication on how far to the right this country is falling towards. If the BBC is struggling financially, maybe they should look into privatising it and introduce commercials. Or maybe they should take a good look inside themselves and regain a little bit of honesty and integrity towards the public that subsidises them. Regardless of anything, I'm sure there are laws against forcing people to pay for goods and services they aren't using

According to the article, this isn't likely to be enforced until 2026. Scotland we have less than 11 years to finally achieve our goal for independence.

That time when Anna Torv made an impersonation of Leonard Nimoy as part of the rather complex plot of Fringe
