Cleaning out stuff, and I have too many books (never thought I'd say that).

Question for the audience: Should I keep books I've bought and not read, or keep books that I've already read for the memories (and rereadability)?

Keep some, throw (or, give) some away. I was recently wondering why I still have a book about programming in DBase III.

So much walking today. My legs will hate me tomorrow... They're kind of hating me right now, for that matter.

FS was a lot of walking, but fun.  It was good to see you there.

Operation Mission Hunter - Boston
17 hours, 90 missions, 43km walked, 632296 AP, 184 UPC, 452 UPV.

Recently two large-series missions were created in Boston (Zakim Series - 54 missions, and Public Gardens - 24 missions).

The plan was to complete these two mission series', and as many other missions as possible, in one day. I would start at sunrise with the Zakim series, and just keep going all day. And I would only do new missions that I'd not completed before.

Reports from other agents, put Zakim at 10 hours total for completion. Then I would do some (a multiple of 6) missions to get me from the end point of Zakim, to the beginning of the Public Gardens. Reports from the Public Gardens put that series at a total of only 1 hour for completion.

At this point I would be up to 96 missions completed.

Then I mapped out a path that would gain me another 83 missions, and planned to keep going as far as I physically could.

I arrived at the beginning of the Zakim series and started the first mission at 5:50am. I had an extended battery, two external batteries, and 4 bottles of hydration. This was also to be the hottest weekend (so far) of the summer in Boston this year, with a forecast high in the low 90's.

I soon learned that my sneakers were not as new as they were when I was in DC, and I could feel it 4 hours in. Luckily at this point, I was near a drug store, and the good Dr. Scholls gave me some inserts that helped me survive the rest of the day, but the damage was already done. Between the soreness and the heat, it was slow going from then.

13 hours, 3 medals, and a level gain later, I finally finished the Zakim series, 3 hours behind schedule.

Of the 19 missions I had chosen to get me from here to the second series, due to my soreness at this point, I only did 12, eliminating 2 as being too far out of the way, and one has being too hilly terrain.

The Public Gardens series, true to reports, only took an hour to complete, wrapping up the day at 10:45pm

I'm Boston - based, but I visit Seattle 3 or 4 times a year. Just got home a few days ago after a week of solo agent training in Seattle.

Story
Introduction
Massachusetts native, moving to Seattle very soon.

I've been a Linux user since 2000, first Debian, then Ubuntu. I consider myself a hacker, not a developer, or a programmer. I don't so much as write programs, as I just bend them to my will. (See definitions #1 through #7 here if you don't understand this usage of the word "hacker")

I love SteamPunk and own a lovely pocket watch (a gift), top hat, bowler, and have dreams of making my car look the part (as I cannot afford a true antique car).

I have been playing Ingress for a few months, and have grown to appreciate the community more than the game itself.

I am a nerd. Or a geek. Whatever you want to call it. And I'm damn proud of it.

A delicious re-incarnation of the Patriot Diner (which itself was the restored diner from Berlin, NJ), on the site of the former Tin Man Diner. Great food, and serving sizes. They offer a military discount, too! You won't see them when you're heading off the Cape, so make sure you stop on the way down!
