So, I was informed that the only way to have "Genuine Windows" on my computer again is to pay $119 for a new license. And the kicker? They no longer support Windows 7 on the store page, so I'll also be forced to "upgrade" to Windows 8, which I really do not want on my computer.
It really seems like a great way to punish customers for using their OS. Kind of a nice "fuck you, you have no choice" for all of us that bought it.

I'm agent evenkolder, currently a Level 10 Enlightened agent.
I started playing on December 8, 2012 in Hampton Roads, VA. I reached level 8 in February of 2013. I submitted many a portal in those days, and played many long hours with the local teams.
In May of 2013, I relocated to Daejeon, South Korea. At the time, there were very few players or portals. Since then, Daejeon, and South Korea in general, has seen a very rapid growth (although still no roads on the scanner). I have played in 2 anomalies and contributed to another while here. I have also submitted a lot of portals and took part in quite a few operations.
In the end of March, I will be relocating again. This time, I will be in the Oxford area in the UK. My wife will be joining me. While I can't claim to have contributed there yet, I am confident that I will remain an active player in the UK and European community.
So, who's next?
For those who may be confused, the following are considered continents:
If you have played in a significant way on any two or more of those, please join! Also, please tell others. I'll be looking for mods to help out if/when this thing gets rolling.

This is an historic drinking fountain along the Walton Well Road (plaque dated 1885) which was erected by the mayor at the time.
Also, anyone want to be a mod?
We biked over 30 km today alone at a pretty slow pace. The entire time, the scanner was open, mounted to our bicycles so we can easily see. Yet, according to Ingress, I only went 8 km this whole week!
It's a real drag to be unable to log one's real work. This isn't the first time this has happened, of course. Just the first time I thought to log it.
