Time to say good bye to #Australia. Even a country that is so dry has its own beauty.

R.I.P. Winamp.

Winamp was one of the first MP3 players available for Windows. I have used it for a long long time. At the beginning it has awesome features and was incredibly fast. Later it became loaded with crap and I stopped using it.

Taipei City as seen in the IITC map.
Incredible portal density. Since I am here (5 days) I have already visited more portals than in 3 months in Shanghai.
That's how paradise must looks like for Ingress players, just a bit less green.

One afternoon in Taipei. 250'000AP in about 4 hours without building, linking or fielding. Just destroy ENL portals.
Local Resistance needs to wake up. The whole city is covered with green sh...!

Found this #snake around 10am slightly north of #Ballina / #NSW, at the Pat Morton Lookout. She was about 1.4m long.
As a snake lover I would be really interested what kind of snake it was. The photo is not good I know, but if someone has an idea what species it could be, leet me know.

Operation Blue Storm
My Own Stormy Blues and Personal Redemption
What follows is my personal experience with the recent Operation Blue Storm (OBS) that was undertaken in New Zealand, on Sunday the 22nd of September, 2013, by members of the New Zealand Resistance (NZRE).

Act I is my unreserved apology to my teammates for nearly stuffing things up entirely, and nearly killing them with anxiety ;)

Act II is my personal attempt at Redemption, and trying to atone for my mistakes :)

Prologue
I had been involved early on in the planning, and led much of the South Island delivery of OBS. My background as an emergency manager and plan writer, as well as a risk manager, meant that I brought a few of these skills to the development of the operation, and I tried to include elements that would manage our risks, primarily Enlightened links and fields, and increase the chance of successfully delivering the plan.

It was me that said during planning:
o Players should only have keys in their inventory for linking on the day, to speed the linking process
o Let's go earlier in the day
Can you see how this came back to bite me? ;)

Act I – Operation Blue Storm
On the morning of Saturday the 21st, after watching the first, and perhaps the most farcical of the Amercia's Cup races yet, I set off in the car, driving to Akaroa which was to be my base for OBS on Sunday.

Not long after heading off, Auckland Enlightened agents appeared in Wellington, and set up some significant fields between Wellington and Auckland - with OBS planned for less than 24 hours away, we certainly paid attention to these going up! I headed to Havelock, and put a blocking link into Kaikoura, and then headed to Picton, toying with more blocking links, but these weren't needed. Time to head south.

I got as far as Kaikoura, and then I hit my first personal 'failure', that started my personal cascade. It was here I found a large car show, and lots of traffic on the road. This slowed my trip to Christchurch, and meant that I lost some time that I could have used, and instead I had to drive to our first event of the weekend - a diversionary P8 farm in Ashburton.

Because of the car show, I was half an hour late. I was also the only agent left who still needed to R8 the portals to turn them into P8s. Yep, everyone was waiting on me. As the traffic had eaten into my planned time, I didn't get a chance to farm the P8s which was extremely disappointing after a very recent move to small town New Zealand. I did manage to pick up some rather vital Gisborne keys needed for the following morning's operation. After a quick briefing with the Canterbury Resistance, I was off to Akaroa to get some much needed sleep.

Started the Sunday morning well. Reset the cache and data in the Scanner, and got to my target portal and set up with more than 15 minutes to spare. At this point I received a message that I could have done with receiving when it was sent - I blame my phone. In short, my fellow agent that was supposed to be with me for the operation wasn't going to make it, as he had been late getting back on an international flight the previous evening, as a result of another unrelated passenger having what sounded to be a fairly serious medical emergency on the flight.

No worries I thought, I can just flip the existing green portal with an ADA and stick two Rare Link Amps (RLA) on. It was only after applying the ADA, and hitting the Upgrade screen that I realised I was in for a pile of hurt as a result of the new mod rules. I, of course, now owned the two existing shields and was unable to deploy the RLAs in the free slots. Oh. Crap. After a quick consultation with the others, the portal was immediately JARVIS'ed and I set about attempting to blow the shields off, whilst not destroying ANY of the resonators. This ended up taking around 25 minutes, the wanton destruction of the surrounding portals, and you wouldn't believe it, but the second shield on the target portal, only a Common Shield, was the last of all the shields on the six portals to drop. One piece of stunning luck here, was that the Enlightened were actively recharging the portal, Tawhiri Matea, and this saved me destroying even a single resonator - the destruction of which would have at a minimum delayed the operation by 90 minutes, but most likely would have scuttled it completely.

At this stage I must have been 25 minutes over time, and boy could I feel the weight of my fellow NZRE agents on me. No problems, I thought, I can now flip it back with another ADA, stick the two RLAs on, and we're good to go.

This was the point I discovered, as a result of the travel delays on the previous day, that I, despite asking everyone else that was linking to offload all keys not being used in the operation, still had a full key inventory and it was going to take forever to make the two links that I had to make. As it stood, my two links would complete three of the five fields for the operation, so I really was in a make or break situation for the whole operation. After trying for 15 minutes to get just one of the keys come up in the link availability cards, I relented, and started dropping all non-essential keys.

After another 20 minutes, a shiteload of portal keys on the ground, and I was finally able to make the links, pretty much one hour and fifteen minutes after they should have been made - so much for me driving for a near-simultaneous creation of the fields and asking to go earlier in the day!

09:59 <rediguana> created a Control Field @Tawiri Matea +586554 MUs
10:22 <pookiebear90> created a Control Field @My Great Aunt Kate +824900 MUs

Operation Blue Storm was success, but it so easily could have been a failure, and all my fault. Let's say I got quite a bit of pressure, needling, a few rather terse words, and requests to purchase drinks. I just wanted to crawl into a hole and disappear. +Michael Neville did outstandingly well to survive my activities today! :)

Act II - Redemption
After a few hours, one of the key portals in the North Island was taken out. This, however, left some quite significant links still able to be built upon, and so we started some quick ad hoc planning for another Act to the Operation that I would implement in a few hours after my long drive back to the top of the South Island. Surprisingly we had very little to do. There was one set of Resistance blocking links in the North Island that were able to be JARVIS'ed a couple of hours in advance by OBS agents on their way home, and some additional links and fields that had been set up around Christchurch presented the option of creating a couple of additional layers.

As much of the drive was spent out of mobile data coverage, I feared that each time I would pop back in, I'd be notified of one of the portals being taken down, and the Second Act would be neutered before it even started. Surprisingly, nothing happened, the remaining links stood.

I got home, and then spent twenty minutes following my own instructions. Dropping keys. All but the five portals I needed - no way was I going to avoid best practice intentionally again. I swung through Motueka, collected another NZRE agent, and we started the drive up to the saddle of the Takaka Hill, where the Takaka Walkway portal resides. A quick upgrade in the misty cloud and drizzle, a painless deployment of 2 RLAs, and this time, the linking was flawless. 

20:49 <rediguana> created a Control Field @Takaka Walkway +595409 MUs
20:50 <rediguana> created a Control Field @Takaka Walkway +116966 MUs
20:51 <rediguana> created a Control Field @Takaka Walkway +131635 MUs
20:51 <rediguana> created a Control Field @Takaka Walkway +309597 MUs

Funnily enough, I received much more positive feedback for this effort, and I hope I have mostly redeemed myself for events earlier today. I do however think that I do owe a few people drinks, and that I am going to be reminded of this misadventure for some time to come!

I hadn't been paying much attention during the day, but now I've had the chance to have a look, thanks to my awesome teammates, I've had the honour to lay 3.29 million Mind Units on behalf of the NZRE and the Resistance globally today and most especially the tens of, if not a hundred, Resistance agents all around New Zealand that made this happen. Personally, I'm not a huge believer in layered fields adding to the MU count (but I love them for topology and some defensive benefits), so even if you remove the two layered fields for double-dipping, it still tops in at 3.04MMU - not bad for a sparsely populated island nation.

Personally, of more interest to me was the total driving I did in the 36 hours, and after checking up on the lovely new Google Maps, I found that I'd driven around 1300km for my involvement! What a fun way to spend the weekend!
