Deleting all my collections on google+

Having collections was fun for a while, but my earthquakes collection zoomed to 34,000, and I was having trouble swatting down all the useless comments.  So, another group communication thing is destroyed by spam.  I've been on every one since the beginning of the internet. They all are great for a while, then stupid people find out about it.  I'll maintain the blog for archive purposes, and I'll go to Google spaces for 'disposable' comments.  When you delete a collection, every post goes down the drain.

Google spaces is 'invite only', and is a bit weird right now.  Those who want to be invited have to figure it out, I don't really know how.  :)  I don't even know if 'public' still exists.

Good for Trump, if he can get away with it

That would be the standard line of all his supporters.  Never pay a penny of tax .... blah blah.  Now, here's the latest from his campaign.  :)

I especially like her leery, forced smile.  :)

**made-up picture removed.  These things quickly lose their significance as the trumpie moves on to more bizarre things.  I just can't keep up with funny pictures.  :)

LInux - We need Google Scientists now

I just read that Ammie and Vimware have joined up, putting another nail in the Google cloud services.  So, I am nagging them again to do something original.  I am getting tons of free stuff from Ammie to review, yet nothing from googs.  In fact, they banished me from adscents long ago.

If then want to get ahead they are going to have to give free stuff to their greatest fans.  I'm thinking of some processor time on their cloud.  I would put Linux on it, and run some great analysis programs.  Then I would blog how easy it was and that anybody with money should pay them.  God knows I'd never pay them, I don't pay for anything!  :)

So, Google, get the lead out and do something.

ps.  I can't figure out this new G Spaces thing, as opposed to a collection, so I started one on this, with no members.

pps.  I'm getting a Google home speaker, and all the phones are primed for 'ok google' any time.  So when I say the magic phrase in the kitchen what will happen?  Do they all start talking to each other?
