New UI for G+ is rocking

Google+ finally has a brand-spanking new GUI which is quite different from the rest. In Google's vein, it is quite simple, elegant, minimal yet functional. Check out the new features on the official blog in this post. I am enjoying every bit of it and looking forward to more such good things from Google. What do you think - let me know in your comments!

101 Useful but lesser known Websites

I came across a list of 101 very useful but not very highly known websites that can be very useful for example for sharing your screen over the internet with others, or editing pdf files in the browser, or create nice charts/graphs, and so on.

Check out the links on original post here. You can also download the full article in pdf from the bottom of the original post.

Get free email alerts when your website is down

Recently Amit Agarwal of Digital Inspirations posted a nice article on how to get free email alerts when your website goes down. His solution uses Google Docs Spreadsheet with some nice scripting using Google URL Fetch Service, Google Mail Service and Google Spreadsheet API to create a trigger to check for the specified URL at the given intervals. The script logs the status of the test and also emails the specified address with the details when there are issues and also after the site is back.

Check out the details and get the Google Doc Spreadsheet from his blog post here.
