If they hit their $2,000,000 stretch goal which unlocks a Blu-ray option, I am totally in.

We've barreled on through the original goal to more than $1200 in pledges. Can we top Jensen's 2014 pledges and meet the stretch goal of $1500? I think we can! Please visit http://goo.gl/C3Abe6 and help us get there!

Some of you may remember that +Jensen Hornick shaved his mane to raise money for the +St. Baldrick's Foundation, a charitable organization that funds research to combat childhood cancer. With a last-minute push from the +Ingress community, $1400 was raised for childhood cancer research. And Jensen's participation was featured in the very first Ingress Obsessed video with +Christina Wrenegade and +Rebecca B. Well, guess what! That was a year ago!

This year, partially inspired by Jensen's participation, +Ed Dryer's son Joey grew his hair long specifically to participate in a 2015 St. Baldrick's event. Joey has raised over $300 so far, but he hasn't reached his goal yet. Like we did last year for Jensen, let's push Joey's pledges over the top... and then some!

Please visit http://goo.gl/BVqt8m and contribute what you can. There's no amount too small to help!

Thanks,

+Ingress can be intense. Agents can take things too seriously. Sometimes, it's good to engage in some directed silliness to remind ourselves that having fun with Ingress is the most important thing. +Reed Nightingale's Operation Max Range is a great example of a bit of serious Ingress silliness, and his write-up is hilarious. Enjoy!
 
Operation Max Range was devised to demonstrate true linking power, with a primary goal of using portals to their fullest potential. The portals and lines for Operation Max Range were specifically chosen so that without four link amps on the anchors, the field would be impossible to throw. This decision meant that our anchors would be unshielded, but since the majority of the anchors are hiking portals we felt fairly secure in the field concept.

@Jzenya and Israeli agent @abEnigma both immediately saw the strategic value in Operation Max Range, and volunteered to be primary and backup planners and intel leads. They spent the next four days earnestly massaging the concept field into a technical work of art, complete with link orders and required deploy and mod arrangements for each of the 14 unique anchors.

With the field plan complete, it was key farming time. No agents in any connected networks had keys to the anchors Operation Max Range needed, so three agents were sent to acquire the required quantities covertly. Once gathered, Washington agents @TheEnabler and @dnightin were instrumental in getting the keys to our fielding agents.

The night of Operation Max Range’s execution, not everything went smoothly. A critical blocker portal was set up by an unsuspecting Resistance agent and only discovered just before throw time. Fortunately, the clearing team was close enough to remove the problem right before it needed to be down. Additionally, the primary intel lead started having Internet connection issues minutes before show time. Luckily another trusted intel agent was available to cover the short outage and keep the op moving forward.

Because of the link distances and the unknown signal strength for some service providers at the anchors, we originally wanted to use the very reliable, low-latency, literally speed-of-light smoke signal messaging to handle communications. Unfortunately, we didn’t manage to get the proper permits in time, so we had to fall back onto our backup voice-over-ip, text-based, and short range mechanical air pressure wave communication channels. Fortunately, the signal strength near the anchors was sufficient to support these three backup modes, enabling all of our fielders and lane clearers to stay in sync.

Link number 1 was thrown, and from there, all of the planning efforts started showing. Link after link, field after field, the north, east, and west fielding teams executed Operation Max Range with laser-like precision. The 112 level 1 resonators and 21 required rare link amps were up to the task, and held the fields up solidly. Shortly after the start of the op, Enlightened activity appeared in the area. However, despite their presence and despite having spotted the op underway, they did not throw any blockers, and we were able to get all of our fields up before checkpoint.

As with most fields, the stress doesn’t end until checkpoint hits, and Operation Max Range was no different. Due to our fielding agents’ schedules and availability, we had thrown our fields over three hours early. Minutes ticked by. Then an hour. Then two. Finally, checkpoint! All of our assumptions about our choice for portals were validated. Whether it was the night throwing time, the hiking-only anchors, or the combination of the two that kept the layers up, it didn’t matter. We had pulled it off. As stressful as it was at the time, in retrospect it’s reasonable to say that all of the agents involved had a great time making Operation Max Range a reality. Vive le Resistance!

Records Broken by Operation Max Range:
Most level 1 portal anchors (14 portals)
Most layers using only level 1 portals (12 layers)
Most fields in an op using only level 1 portals ( 33 fields)
Largest field op using only level 1 portals (13 agents)
Largest total MU count in an op using only level 1 portals (255MU)
Longest purely level 1 link (467m)

Huge thanks to all of the agents who helped with this SAF!

Everything about this place is great. Food. Coffee. Service. Location. Be prepared for a brunch-time wait on a Sunday, but I promise it is worth it!

Dr. Katz has been my primary care physician for over seven years. He's extremely efficient, usually getting me out the door in about 15 minutes, but he also listens and asks good questions. (I'm impressed with his ability to remember things about me even though I only see him once a year or so.) I've never had a better doctor. The entire practice is run well. They are very punctual about appointments, so I've never sat in the waiting area more than about 1 minute beyond my scheduled appointment; they're never "running behind" in my experience. Highly recommended!

Fast. Cheap. Delicious. Attentive, friendly staff. Nothing fancy about this place, but it is exactly what a diner should be.

The food is fantastic. At the suggestion of our waiter, I had the scallops this evening instead of the usual jerk chicken, and wow, I was not disappointed! The drinks are delicious. I won't say the place is cheap, but the quality matches the price!
