So it's been a while since I have posted on G+ but it's Movember time again and this year I'm raising money to shave off my beard.

Anyone who wants to donate please do so.

So after 801 Days holding this portal it got spoofed by a single account @burset but then overnight at 837 days it's now been visited by a few more unless a bus load of people arrived at the portal.
@jembrot @vinasweet @Cowox9e51T @HulkKampoeng @TukangcendoI @gembuls

I know these guys are either spoofing or using satellite internet because this particular portal & the couple around it are a little unique because it's a little far away from anywhere and I had to install a mobile repeater tower onsite to capture it and the surrounding portals were outside the coverage range. The tower is still there an it's possible to access this one portal but the location is also owned by my uncle although the cemetery and town ruins are publicly accessible it's rarely visited by anyone given its remoteness.

If you look at my profile banner background I took that photo while installing the antenna onsite. I have also tagged this post with the location of the portals.

This portal was pretty much the last thing holding me to playing ingress and unfortunately it's been ruined :(

So after a full year with my +Jawbone​ Up3 I've had it fail on me four times. I've returned it for replacement three times but the latest failure is that it's split on the inside and I'm guessing water has killed it.

Why +Jawbone​ does the up3 have such poor build quality. Also the hair lacky is there because the clasp on the UP3 is terrible at staying closed.

I think I'm now just going to give in and get a +Fitbit​.

Well these look pretty cool. I've got the classic ones and they've been great but this might be a new bedroom power point.

So I'm attempting to make this again this weekend :)

My mouth is already watering!!
So after keeping the temperature to 100-120°C for about 9 hours it tastes pretty good.

For those interested (and to remind me next time) this is what I did.

Method.
1. Apply Rub to brisket cut and leave over night.
2. Cover burner with foil (As in Picture)
3. Put square tray on Alfoil section of burner (underneath meat & grill plate)
4. Place soaked chips in smoking box on grill above lit section of the burner.
5. Place meat above tray.
6. Keep temperature between 100-120°C for 8-10Hrs, check each hour & replace smoking chips if required. Once done it should be similar temp in the middle of the brisket.
7. Enjoy the tastiness.

Rub recipe.
- 3/4 cup Smoked Paprika
- 3/4 cup Sweet Paprika
- 3 Tbsp Sugar
- 2 Tbsp Salt
- 2 Tbsp Pepper
- 4 Crushed Smoked Garlic Cloves (because I had them)
