So, I learned this evening that +Microsoft Corporation +Windows has this wonderfully ridiculous policy that, if you have an OEM license for their OS, and then decide to upgrade a component, say your hard drive, that license is not transferable to the new component.

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 was interviewed by Tim Thompson for the KAIST podcast, and it's online today.  My interview is on Season 3 Episode 3.  Give it a listen, and maybe check out some of the other podcasts too.

I've decided to open up the definitions a bit so that more people feel less intimidated.  Basically, people who have tried to make an impact intercontinentally.  If anyone thinks that's too forgiving, please let me know.

Also, anyone want to be a mod?

Hey, +Joe Philley​! I got my bronze last week after an hour of hacking at work (ssshhhh, don't tell the boss). I believe I was the first in Korea to post the earned badge.

So, I'll take either ADA or Jarvis if you've got any left, but I'd prefer an ADA, please.

So, today +Gwadu 유나​ and I (evenkolder) decided to bike around a bit. We met up for a cross faction meeting and competition. We tried to bike slowly enough for the distance to count toward or Trekker badge. I simultaneously logged with Google's My Tracks application.

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.

Introduce Yourself  - 
 
Hey everyone, I'm going to try to get things rolling here.

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?

Dear +Ingress friends, I've made a crossfaction community for people who have played in multiple continents.  If you have made significant contributions in two or more continents, please consider joining this community!

For those who may be confused, the following are considered continents:
Africa
Antarctica
Asia
Australia
Europe
North America
South America

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.

Some Google Auto-Awesome of my shots in DC.  I was hoping this would happen, so I didn't have to make my own .gif files.

I really like how these turned out, except the Washington Monument one...I love the picture, but the animation is pointless.

If you're in the mood for fast food, do this instead. Food is good, you get a lot of it, and the price is reasonable. Just make sure you spell out everything exactly, because they get busy and tend to make mistakes in orders.

My wife and I went here and ordered the military camp stew, budae jjigae (부대찌개), extra spicy. It was good, and more authentic than we expected. My wife is from Korea, and I lived there for two years. The only major difference with this dish from the real Korean dish is that this is a bit saltier, and nowhere near as spicy. Still, it was quite enjoyable. The kimchi (김치) was pretty good too, though it doesn't automatically come with the food like in Korea. They also serve Baek Saeju (백세주), which was unexpected, but nice. Our biggest complaint is the price. It's definitely not Korean prices. We are still willing to pay these prices, but we would go much more often if the prices were lower. Granted, we are still getting used to Oxford prices. Still, for authenticity, the side dishes and rice should come included in the price of the main meal.

Pretty good food, friendly service. Price is a little high for what you get, but it's still good overall.
