Anyone know who the band is during after hours at #io14 ? Usually they announce this during the keynote.

HeatSink/Multi Hack Question
--------------------------------------------

I am on a mission to create the ultimate farming spot.  I have a set of 3 portals that are only reachable on foot.  My goal is to put 3 Very Rare HeatSinks on each as well as a very rare multi-hack on each.  I am well on my way; however, I am not seeing the results that I expected.

On Portal 1 I have 3 common HeatSinks and a VR MultiHack.  So when I hack I expect to see the following hacking rate:  3 C HS  = 300 * 0.8 * 0.8 * 0.8 = 153.6 s cooldown.  However, when I immediately hack again it states that I have 240 seconds until cooldown.

On Portal 2 I have 3 Rare HeatSinks and a VR MultiHack.  So when I hack I expect to see the following hacking rate:  3R HS  = 300 * 0.5 * 0.5 * 0.5 = 37.5 s cooldown.  However, when I immediately hack again it states that I have 120 seconds until cooldown.

On Portal 3 I have the ultimate farming node, a portal with 3 very Rare HeatSinks and a VR MultiHack.  So when I hack I expect to see the following hacking rate:  300 * 0.3 * 0.3 * 0.3 = 8.1 s cooldown.  However, when I immediately hack again it states that I have 30 seconds until cooldown.

So, I must say that I am disappointed.  The ultimate farm is less fertile than I was led to believe...especially given how hard it is to come by these VR mods.

Can anyone explain why I am seeing numbers that do not add up to the widely posted mathematical models of Heat Sinks?

And another thing for your information: the cool down timer starts when you press the hack button, not when hack animation starts or the results screen shows.

ION Registration has begun.  Nice to see that the Googler I spoke to at the Atmosphere Maps event was wrong.  So, I have to give +Vic Gundotra some props since he did take care of his IONs.

None here. I am expecting ions to go through the standard registration and to get auto accepted. Hopefully that is not wishful thinking.

Google I/O 2012 registration has begun...for I/ONs at least. $900 this year. Totally worth it. See you there.

Any plans to bring back "highlight my level 8's on portals"?  I love this feature.

What? No Google ION registration for I/O 2013. A Googler just confirmed this to me. Come on +Vic Gundotra, take care of the faithful and loyal.

Not a friend...I was at a Google enterprise event and asked one of the people at Google about ION registration.  She called around and then told me the grim news.  However, you are correct.  Just got my ION invite today and have already registered.
