How to revoke access from unwanted apps which are Google authenticated

I recently grant access to feedspot from my Google account to check it out. But when I wanted to remove it I figured the application doesn't have an option to do that except may be sending a request to them via email. Then I figured I can directly do that from my Google account itself.

Go to https://myaccount.google.com/

Connected apps and services => Account permission

I found all the apps I have given permission is listed there with the date. Click the app and say revoke access!

Thought this could be helpful for someone else as well.

Linux Mint 17 - WIFI disabled upon wakeup

When I put my laptop to sleep and wake it up I find that WIFI is disabled in network manager. Unless I restart the laptop it doesn't get enabled. An issue similar to this has been discussed here http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=53&t=184520. I believe Mint has inherited this issue from Ubuntu since similar issues are discussed in the Ubuntu forum as well.

Based on the discussion on that thread I did the following workaround. Put the following script in /etc/pm/sleep.d and make it executable. I have name the script as "wakeupnet.sh".

case "$1" in
        service network-manager restart
exit $?
