After Action Report: Today was the first Saturday of the month and you know what that means... It's time for First Saturday!
Yes, it's time for all the good little boys and girls to put aside their differences and meet for some coffee and gossip.  The site for this month was moved at the last minute because of a conflict but Aromas Coffeehouse in teh Old Market is always good fun.
We had several new players attend this month including a couple from KC (Goldenone9140 and Chop79) and two new Omaha agents (compassyun and ballinplay). There were several levelers in the house as well. (good to seem them since this is all about them, right?)
Personally I had a great time getting to know a lot of the newer agents that I have seen on the scanner and in COMMS but had not had a chance to meet yet.  Having a face to place with the agent name really helps keep it real. 
After sufficient amounts of caffeine were taken in and the agents were fully revved up we started the competition. This month the teams were much more even than they have been in a quite while. 
After just over two hours of fierce competition the results were compiled and the results were as follows:

City Levels Gained: 4
Total Trekker Earned: 96
City AP Gained: 2344243

Top Enlightened Leveler: ballinplay - 1 level (53330)
Top Resistance Leveler: RusTinMan - 1 level (111770)
Top Overall Leveler: RusTinMan - 1 level (111770)

AP Gained - Enlightened: 873,516
AP Gained - Resistance: 1,780,206

Top 3 AP Increase:
OmahasBeast - 309,479
someagenthole - 221164
ShinyTinman - 172892

See the attached screenshot for all the data from the event.

NOTE: There was some confusion regarding the start time and some agents departed the location while other agents were still doing check-in but after a bit of discussion the contest time was extended to 2:15 for everyone else and the early agents were asked to come in at 2 hours instead, which they did.

Thank you to everyone that donated today so that the winners could be awarded prizes since this event is funded by the agents not NIANTIC.

Great times were had and I can't wait to see you all next month!

How long until the "Ingress Mail" function is out of Beta?  I have been testing with +Mike S and we have successfully transferred capsules of gear over 1000 miles within seconds and not lost a package. This will be great for supplying agents in remote locations who can't get to a L8 farm.

A new feature that I would like to see is a function that allows you t recover resonators from a portal when you upgrade that resonator.  For instance if I roll up to a P5 portal and upgrade the 2xR6, 2xR5, and 2xR4 with my resonators the upgraded R4-R6 would be added to the inventory. I have heard rumours that you are looking at releasing this in a future update?

Greetings all! My Agent name is Malikont and I play primarily in the Omaha area but also travel around the country for work. Looking forward to working with other Agents to protect the city from the greens.

New Fanfic mini series just about completed...

Not Suer how I feel about this other than there is no way it can be worse than the new movie.
Back in March we posted a teaser trailer for Nightwing: The Series, an upcoming fan-made miniseries centred around Batman’s former sidekick Dick Grayson, and now with production almost done, a new full length trailer has arrived online, and we have it for you below… “Nightwing: The Series follows the story of Batman’s former sidekick, Dick …

Alton Brown shared a great post on how stock/broth is made and what the difference is between the two.  I threw away the ham bone after the Christmas meal and did I ever get in trouble for not saving it for stock. What can I say, I was thinking with my head not my stomach.  Stupid me.
 
Culinary stocks are fine examples of edible recycling.

Do you know the difference between stocks and broths?
What is the difference between stocks and broths? Let’s lay out the facts right up front: — A stock is made from bones and whatever connective tissue and joint material is connected to them at the time they go in the pot. — A broth is a liquid in which meat has been cooked. A broth may be flavorful, but without bones there will never be substantial body. In the home kitchen producing a pure “stock” is difficult because getting bones spotless is a...
