Gone are the days of identifying non-threats from iPhone users near your portals. However, I'm glad. I'm really looking forward to the influx of players and change in local dynamics.

SitRep, OP: Evelien’s Rain

On Saturday, July 5th, we undertook the largest fielding attempt in the Cincinnati area. OP: Frog Queen, as it was known (SitRep: https://plus.google.com/+JoeDykes/posts/3eEiyGY9F4t), didn’t quite go as planned. We managed to get some success out of it, but not what we were going for. To briefly recap the events of that operation, here’s a quick summary: We planned three layers over Dayton, Ohio, and seven layers over Cincinnati, Ohio. After the final stages of lane clearing and preparation for the final linking, a rogue Enlightened agent began purposefully blocking our efforts. This caused us to miss the cycle window, and only two of the planned layers over Dayton went up in time.

Rather than give up on a broken situation, we decided to retry our efforts, and go for it again just four days later. Most of the same plans were used, as a good portion of the required keys were still in supply. Also, seeing as how it was so near to the last operation, the required link lanes were still fairly clear, and most agents from the first time were ready to clear their same areas again. To avoid any possible conflict from the same rogue agent the first time around, things were planned much more swiftly, and quietly.

Lane clearing went pretty smoothly, minus some last minute panic due to bad cell service. But overall, everyone was in position and ready to link in time. In the end, six layers went over Cincinnati, and three layers went over Dayton in time for the checkpoint. The total MU count ended up just shy of 9 million. One more layer went over Dayton, but missed the checkpoint by roughly 30 seconds.

MU counts: 8,978,898 = 696,387 + 726,321 + 960,246 + 38,710 + 4,625 + 729,217 + 1,416 + 9,890 + 963,167 + 971,342 + 971,342 + 972,502 + 961,712 + 972,021. Additional Dayton field past checkpoint: 747,038.

The title of this operation is dedicated to agent EvelienRain. Her part in the first operation was difficult, to say the least. She did an excellent job of clearing her area, and being willing to hang around for any further help. Unfortunately, she was the one to directly deal with the rogue agent. There was no worry of anything physical, thankfully, but it certainly wasn’t a pleasant experience for her. Easily one of the nicest people we have, and in no way deserved to be treated so poorly.

OP: Frog Queen sitrep

On June 23rd, one of our top ranking agents (@LadyLumpz) mentioned plans to leave town for a while. As a gift for them being away and unable to contribute to the local cell, we decided to organize large fields covering their, and our city (Dayton and Cincinnati, respectively). This would also be the first effort to field over these cities entirely.

We then went into the usual planning stages. Anchors were identified, keys collected and moved, scrubbers recruited, resources procured, and everyone was excited to take part in the whole operation. The plan was to have three layers cover Dayton, and seven layers cover Cincinnati. After all keys were secured, and specific agents were ready to move, scrubbing began on Friday the 4th. Over the course of Saturday the 5th, the last of the blocking links were targeted, and agents headed to their required anchors. As the final couple hours ticked down, everything was moving smoothly, and on track.

There was, however, an unexpected problem. A rogue Enlightened agent, upset with the flipping of their portals to clear links, began to throw their own blocking links. There had been issues with this agent in the past, but we didn’t anticipate this drastic of a reaction. They knew where to best block efforts, due to being let in on information about the operation earlier, in hopes of them cooperating. Efforts were made to talk to them, and ease whatever issues they had with the operation. This gained no results, and the friendly blocking links continued.

Despite this difficulty, we still managed to throw two of the planned layers over Dayton before checkpoint, netting roughly 1.3 million MUs. Half of the required links to cover Cincinnati were in place, and ready to be linked to, however the extra time and effort required to clear the friendly blocking links caused the time frame to be missed. In an effort to complete the fields anyway, we continued pushing for the last links. Before this could be finished, though, the main northwest anchor went down.

Lessons were learned, friendships made, and (some) fields went up. Despite the difficulty we encountered, things went beautifully.

Specialty recruitment material, made for Sears catalogs, the back of comic books, and any other publication fit to print!

I had shared this among my circles previously, just not publicly. Also, there was an embarrassing typo. Whoops.

I think it should say "Ingress is for you". Saying it's "here for you" makes it sound like a shoulder. (imho)

Does anyone know of a way to clear up the "Oops! Something went wrong..." thing with Intel? When this hits, I can't use Intel with anything. I've tried multiple browsers, rebooting, multiple computers, even mobile on and off wifi. Is this a problem with Intel itself, or is there anything I can do on my end to fix it?

At the Cincinnati Interitus anomaly, the little bags of goodies (stickers, pins, etc.) ran out pretty quickly. From the look of the crowds at the point that they ran out, it seems only about half of everyone got the bags.

My question is, is there any way we can still get those? If nothing else, I would just like the little Interitus lapel pin. I secured a medal voucher at the after party, but the little bags were long gone.

Introduction
I'm just another geek guy. I like art stuff as well, but rarely do anything with it. I probably should, but I never can decide what to actually make. I like to tinker with electronics, usually to repair them, or mod them. I'm a pretty reserved person, but that doesn't mean I don't like you. I just always work under the assumption that I'm bothering people if I ask to hang out. Yeah, not very rational, but neither am I.

Good prices, and friendly staff. However, they're a bit forgetful. After dropping our car off, and leaving a number (and being told we'd be called when finished), they never actually called. They were heavily overbooked, so we were told it may take upwards of an hour and a half. We walked around the surrounding area for two hours, while the car was finished within 45 minutes. No call was ever made, and we eventually walked back to ask about. It had been sitting there finished the while time, while nobody had the thought to tell us.

Excellent experience here. There's a HUGE range of flavors to sample here, and they work with you to find exactly what you like the most. They also have a great selection of equipment, from the smallest starter kit, to full blown mechanical mods. All at very fair prices.
