    Google+ (Off topic, but I want to share with you all)

    Google+ is still by invitation only, so here is yours!

    For any who can't get it to work, it's first come - first served

    (it'd have been better to offer it via PM, for this reason).

    For those of you who are curious: Google+ has an explanation.
    "Tactical" is a mindset, not an equipment list.

    I don't see any explanation. Is it some kind of network extension for those who can't seem to burp without twitting/facebooking it to the world?

    No, it's a social network (ala Facebook, Myspace, Friendster, etc).

    Since it's Google, it has the potential to be better than all of them.

    Yes, it kinda puts Twitter aside.

    You can read more about Google+ at wikipedia

    Okay. If the link does not work for you, PM me.

    I will need two things:
    1) A first and last name that Google will believe are real. Since I go by my middle name, I put both first and middle in the first name box.
    2) Your email address.

    To me, less Google is to be desired, not more.

    They don't get to park their corporate jet (767) at the NASA
    hanger because they respect the privacy of the public.

    So why is this on GRM?
    .
    No people should have to fear the will of their government; all governments should have to fear the will of their people.

    Well, He DID Say "Off Topic" . . .

    . . . and he was right.


    It's nice that you want to share your enthusiasms but, really, this is SO not the place for that.

    Okay, . . .

    . . . Let's give this a try . . .

    It has been suggested that this thread might be appropriate for the Rallying Point sub-forum.

    Let's try that out and see where it goes.

    If it results in heinous spammage, we'll have to put it down.

    So, into your capable hands I commend this . . .

    This is relevant to GRM since G+ makes it easier to sort your contacts into 'circles'. Then when you post, you post to one or more circles. Facebook has similar functionality, but its not easy to use.

    So I could set up a GRM circle and watch what you all are saying to me about gun posts. You guys would see the latest adventures in reloading, but not pictures of the family reunion.
