YouTube Re-Enables Watch History After Google+ Switch
FYI, YouTube re-enabled watch history after switching to Google+. I just wanted to give a reminder to those who paused web history way back when it was disabled.
Keep Pairs of Rechargeable Batteries at the Same Charge Level
Drakaji shares a good tip when using rechargeable batteries:

You could easily improve on this with the use of colour or others symbols that have some meaning to you and are visible at a glance.
