Recently I wanted to take a picture of one of my bathrooms. Unfortunately, the half bathroom is a bit small and my phone’s camera couldn’t take a shot that could show most of the bathroom. Even though my phone, a Samsung Galaxy Note 3, has a pretty impressive panoramic picture feature, it only creates horizontal panoramas. Fortunately, though, there is a free program called Panorama Plus which can take a series of photos and stitch them all together. Below are the individual pictures I took of the bathroom from different angles and below them is the panorama of all of those pictures stitched together. Not bad!

Google Chrome Inspector’s Network tab allows you to see HTTP requests and responses when a page is loaded. However, by default, if you click on a link and go to another page, the network log is cleared and HTTP requests and responses for the new page is shown. If you’d like to preserver the network log across multiple pages / page loads, click the Preserve Log checkbox. This is especially handy if you are filling out a form which posts to a page that causes a page reload and you want to see the request form data sent.
