Ever since +Gerid Adams​​ went public with the early results of his courageous investigation into RESWUE, which you can read here (https://plus.google.com/+GeridAdams/posts/bQjyakKKmwK), I've been working up the courage to share what I have learned about another vital weapon in the Guardian hunter's arsenal.

What I have discovered will shock you. I haven't posted before, out of fear of reprisal from Guardian hunters on both sides. But Gerid can't be the only whistle-blower. If others like me start to follow Gerid's courageous example and come out of the shadows, maybe we can make a real difference here. Are you listening, +John Hanke​​?

To cut to the chase... I have learned, through sources I still must protect, that there is an app used in virtually every instance of Guardian Portal takedown. You get points for it, too! Usually. This app is brazenly offered for FREE right in the Google Play Store by its makers. And nowhere in their TOS do they forbid the odious practice of Guardian hunting. Do you need a smokier gun than this?? I will post the link here, but I just rely on your better natures not to use this powerful tool to become a Guardian hunter yourselves.

deep breath, Aaron, you can do this

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.nianticproject.ingress

This app, known colloquially as The Scanner, has been used in every verified Guardian Portal takedown. By hunters on both sides. Like Gerid, I am mostly concerned about the impact of hunting in the x-faction #Ingress community, and most definitely am not motivated by frustration that the other team has a shinier toy right now. And I was definitely NOT spurred on in this by a troll source. I was handed information, and drew my own conclusion. I leave you, now, to do the same.

Good night. God bless you, and God bless the worldwide XM portal network.

AUSTIN, TX—While attending the fourth day of this year’s SXSW conference, Chicago-based marketing associate Tim Danner told reporters today that the music, film, and interactive festival is just about as cool, as alternative, and as real as it...

Spotted at Panda Express: very young guy with mustache, triforce logo ironed on backpack, Oculus-labeled plastic case. #geeksinthewild

It looked like he might have been carrying an actual Oculus Rift headset. The box was the right size for it. And DePaul has a program right nearby that includes video game design.

#Ingress internal issues. Feel free to ignore, unless you're interested. In which case let me know so I can recruit you. We've got a new achievement for that...
 
With 90 minutes having passed since the announcement of the Recruiter badge, I would like to propose a community petition to remove the badge. There are various reasons, just look at any post in the ingress community today.

Hi, gadget-savvy friends. I'm looking for a bluetooth headset for my phone that can also double as a pair of decent earphones, so I can watch Netflix or HBOGo on my commute. +Gustavo G. had a pretty good one on Saturday (what was the brand and model again, Gus?), but I'm open to suggestions. I would prefer to spend less than $50.

I think I'll ask my wife to make the sleeve, though. Pennies worth of fleece and a minute of sewing.

Now that cocktails in jam jars have made it to EastEnders, what's next for those who would be 'alternative'? • Have you spotted any hipsters in the wild?

Introduction
Renaissance geek, seeking insight in a soundbite world. But they don't pay me for that. They pay me to take care of financial issues and strategic planning in the arts & culture nonprofit sector.

It's a great location that is both out of the way and close to everything. Lovely old house with lots of great rooms, including a spacious attic sweet with slanting roofline rooms, called the "Tree Top Room." Good service, and plenty of privacy. Breakfast isn't quite as good as we've had at other B&B's.

The location is extremely convenient to our needs, and the room exceeded expectations. It's been recently renovated. There is a partial wall that creates a mini suite in the room. There is lots of space, and the staff is very nice and attentive. Only complaints: There is no vent fan in the bathroom and the food available for breakfast is not great. There is variety, but not much that is healthy. The hot food is hit or miss in quality.

Recently, during fundraising events held by two different nonprofit organizations at the same venue, the venue got permission from a neighboring parking lot owner for the attendees of these events to park in his lot. During the events, Rendered Services illegally towed 10 cars that were parked in this lot with the permission of the lot's owner. They damaged one of these vehicles, a RWD car that is not exotic nor rare, by towing it without a flatbed, causing thousands of dollars in damage to it. Of course, it is impossible to reach the towing company's manager on duty, because he is "in and out all day." I hope the insurance company's subrogation specialists can do a better job, and I hope the parking lot owner terminates their contract.

I had a great experience with Kathleen Tomayo. She knows how to draw, which gave me a lot of confidence right from the start. She was also really nice and worked with me by email on what I wanted to do before I went in for the tattoo. When my blood sugar got low, she gave me gummy worms. And never, ever did they give me any cooler-than-thou attitude.

I've just tried the Sweet Greens & Lemon. I don't think they know what the word "sweet" means. The taste is predominantly that of celery, which is not sweet and which I do not like. Unfortunately I was expecting it to taste more like Odwalla's or Naked's "superfood." It was also expensive. Even after a $1 off coupon, which got me to try it, it was about $5.50.

The food is great. Several notches above your average falafel/Middle Eastern food joint. My favorites are the fattat plates with sauteed chick peas and pine nuts on top. I also like the wraps, which I think is saying a lot, since I usually don't like wraps. I especially like the one with chicken and french fries. It sounds weird, but it's great.
