Selfie, as requested. May have burnt out my fingers, cooldown active. First Gold Translator in Australia (18:50 AEDT 01'FEB), as far as I'm aware. Put me down for an ADA, +Joe Philley.

Ding! First L16 agent in Australia.

Everyone has their own reasons why they Ingress. Mine are twofold: the people and the travel. And since there is no badge for having fun with your teammates (I would definitely have black if there was), I knew I'd have to go for the "travel badges".

I've long been called a "tourist in my own backyard" by my friends, so I thought I'd live up to that moniker by chasing unique portal visits and captures without leaving Australia. One and a half years of playing later, having visited every major city here except Perth, I've finally claimed the titles of Platinum Explorer and Pioneer.

I'm no +Damien Mórka, so to meet the other major L16 requirement, I had to resort to a black Guardian. However, I don't subscribe to the theory that a Guardian is a "lucky" badge (though it can be). It's a badge that can be gained through sheer physical effort, endurance, geographical knowledge, persistence, and, of course, travel. A good Guardian is one your opponents know about, but are helpless to do anything about. That's how I got mine, and I've been helping my teammates get theirs in a similar way ever since.

Huge kudos to my honourable opponent +Alistair Erskine, who beat me to all L16 requirements except the black Guardian by a week. And huge thanks to everyone who supported me in all my crazy travel pursuits, and everyone whose fingers were too slow on the "deploy" button when I was around.

Some river crossings are more fun than others.

Also, this is the first of my random photos that Google decided to Auto-Awesome. I think I like it.

Every year, on April 24th, thousands of Armenians gather at the Tsitsernakaberd Monument in Yerevan, Armenia to commemorate the victims of the Armenian Genocide of 1915.

Unfortunately, being in Sydney, Australia, I wasn't able to pay my respects at the memorial itself, so I did the next best thing I could do: build a replica with some fields.

On a side note, as I was running around the city making links, all around me were preparations for ANZAC Day, a day of commemoration as solemn to Australians as the day preceding it is to Armenians. On April 25th, 1915, exactly one day after the events marking the start of the genocide, Australian and New Zealand troops landed in Gallipoli, and would go on to provide some of the earliest first-hand accounts of the atrocities taking place throughout the Ottoman Empire.

And yes, of course the actual memorial a portal: http://www.ingress.com/intel?ll=40.185791,44.488192&z=18

He who invented this is a god amongst men, and I want to worship at his temple (where I assume these will be given out for communion).
Yeah bread makes you fat as fuck. Split a fuckin' bacon cheddar sausage down the mid section and stick a god damn dog in that bitch. I've been sticking meat in meat since 01'.

Perhaps one day such fine cuisine will reach our shores.  

For now the closest match I can suggest is find a reputable Calzone.  I can recommend Luigi's in Narellan based on a recent tasting.  ;)

Got commissioned to take a few photos of the Central Park heliostat near my work (also known as "Miroir de Mer" or "Sea Mirror" by Yann Kersale) for some arts publication. Feels good to pick up a camera for a set purpose after a long hiatus.

Just my trusty Canon PowerShot S100: fits in pocket, shoots RAW, and has a 24mm f/2.0 lens. I don't like lugging SLRs around unless I really have to.

*What colour is this banknote?*

It's really bothering me that this is even up for debate, but people I've asked have been split 50/50 on what colour best describes the Australian $20 note. Time to make things more "scientific".

A cartoonist working in a black and white medium will use various methods to create the impression of shades of grey - a simple example being cross-hatch. With one source colour, the illusion of a more varied palette is achieved.

In other words: red.

PS: sadly, my son will only ever see this note as a shade of brown. :(

Sydney Enlightened DECLARE VICTORY yet again :)
 
Sydney's 1st "Level 14" portal

When we heard yet another exclamation of "Ding! L14" from one of our teammates, it suddenly occurred to us that we now had 8 L14 agents among the Enlightened ranks in Sydney, and hence it was time for another fun symbolic "first": an L8 portal deployed only by L14 players.

We might even be the second in the world to do it, after the Moscow ENL.

In the week it took to find a time that suited everybody, we had two more agents hit L14, who quickly jumped onboard, so we had to delegate one to capture duty and one to modding duty, so everyone could get their name on the portal in some way.

The portal we chose was "Kelly & Her Gang", in honour of +Darren Kelly and +Tanya Kelly, two of Sydney's oldest players, who were around for every other "first" we've achieved, including deploying their resonators on Sydney's (and the Southern Hemisphere's) first L8 portal over a year go.

And a tip of the hat to Sydney's only L15 agent, +Jerry Riznyczok, who sat this operation out so we lowly L14s could have our newbie fun.

The L14 team:
+Aram Dulyan
+Darren Kelly
+David Olsen
+David S
+Hubert Wagner
+Magnus Boman
+Mark L
+Shannon Elbourne 
+Tanya Kelly
+Yuan Liu

It's doable after all! #ImperfectGlyphPerfected

The trick is to draw the complete glyph as normal, then connect the SW and NE nodes without going through the centre node.

Google+ made me this Auto-Awesome montage on the morning after an Eminem concert. It's my first proper encounter with this feature, and it's surreal enough to be worth sharing, I guess.

EDIT: watch with sound to see what I mean.

All you can eat hot pot (with a freezer full of meat) at reasonable prices. A great place to stuff yourself and/or try out new ingredients. They also have a cheaper small pot available if you're dining alone.

The thick pork bone broth is by far the best in Sydney. Best enjoyed with a soft-boiled egg.

The escargots and the steak tartare are as good as they come. Pricey, but the service and the atmosphere reflect it.

The portions are giant. The "small" chips are larger than the "large" chips in most places. Chicken salt on the chips is a must.
