It is time for the first First Saturday of 2017 and it is happening in the Kendall area. Come brave the cold, meet your rivals and/or allies, and visit some of the smartest portals in the Boston area! All in the name of some good ol' cross faction fun.

We will meet inside the Cambridge Center building near the Bailey & Sage and Clover. For those navigating by portal, look for the beacons or LED Cloud Ceiling portal.

Meet & greet and register your stats with the opposing faction coordinator between 11 & noon. Starting at noon, compete for ap, explore new portals, and/or carry out missions. At 2:00, meet back at the starting point to register ending stats. Winners will be determined based on AP Gained, Levels Gained and km walked.

There is also a cross-faction city-vs-city competition for all sites participating in #IngressFS . Scoring for that competition is the sum of the ENL & RES scores.

Faction Coordinators for this event:
ENL: Biospice
RES: Zarabadoo

I really do enjoy waking to a thunderstorm. Walking in the rain, not so much. Thankfully this one is more bark than bite.

I am going to have to chalk this up to a fail, HBO Now. There is no need for Flash for video playback. +Hulu is guilty for this too, but I believe +Netflix has proven that it is not needed. Even for subscription services.

There are constantly exploits for the plugin. So much so, that even Mozilla has tired of it and has blocked it. Yes, I am an oddball for not installing and additionally disabling it in Chrome, but I feel justified due to very recent events.

I think I am going to like this new monitor.

It is also very nice for working on website stuff as I can have lots of windows open. Sooooo much desktop available.
