#sitrep #frogtears

What is blue stays blue

We'd been waiting for a while for a big frog buildup now. Several mostly destructive frog meetups have taken place in haarlem over the past month but they always seemed so uncoordinated that they never managed to raise a single P8. Then we once again got a tip about an enlightened build. So the next day when I woke up around 12pm I opened the Intel map and surely I saw some outside frogs coming into town from everywhere. So we quickly gathered all the ada's we collected over the past few months. We were expecting something like this already, so we had time to prepare. We simply had to stay off the radar all day, but yet most of us played Ingress all day long. Hell we even shared their very obvious beer portals. After most of them seemed to finally have left we could start. With 6 smurfs, who all showed up within a 12 hours notice the flip back could begin. Within 4 hours not a single green P8 was left within the city center.

So what did we learn from all this? It takes 32 frogs a complete day to build P8s. It take 6 smurfs to build P8 overnight.

Ik vind het vooral zeer komisch dat nog niemand tot de conclusie is gekomen dat deze 'sitrep' meer een pure troll was. Ja wij weten wat bouwen is, de meeste begonnen te twijfelen of 'jullie' dat wel wisten aangezien de gemiddelde Haarlem kikker komt slopen, 1 resonator deployed en weer weg gaat. Nee dat is niet bouwen.Daarnaast, als we het over virussen gaan hebben, virussen zijn een onderdeel van het spel. Echter naar een andere stad komen, 1 portal flippen omdat deze al x aantal dagen staat is vrij lame. Vanwaar dan alles flippen in plaats van gewoon slopen en opbouwen met 6 man wat alsnog een erg hoge P7 zou zijn. We wouden het gewoon zo snel mogelijk in het centrum omhebben, en ja het klopt dezelfde middag stonden er nog maar 50 ofzo, maar bedenk wel even dat dat jullie bursters heeft gekost. Daarnaast hoop ik stiekem toch dat enl in Haarlem eens wat vaker gaat bouwen, want zoals ik al eerder zei 1 reso deploy is niet echt builden.

Verder ingame horen we elkaar niet echt te mogen, irl even goede vrienden. Dat zou je toch wel moeten snappen als ik gewoon aanschuif bij je beerportals +Sabrina Schrijver-Meeuwsen, ik trakeer als je langs komt in elk geval.

Nou toch op een avondje outgress vanwege andere zaken (ik heb 1 burster afgevuurt op locatie dus je kan vast wel uitzoeken waar ik was) toch aardig wat fun gehad vanwege Ingress. Bij deze sluit ik dan ook de comments.

So last night while I was distracting +Shadowdancer Wereldvreemd​ so she couldn't hack towards her gold hacker, I suddenly got a notification that I received the gold walking medal. Pushing me towards level 13 instantly, ha beat you to it. The fact that +Shadowdancer Wereldvreemd​ got to level 14 because of it later that night isn't important here :D give me a week and I'll be there as well. Thanks Niantic.

As you may or may not know I started playing Ingress quite a while ago. And as goes for pretty much every single online game, sometimes you just have to do something entirely crazy to achieve something. In my case it is reach level 11 before the 15th (thanks Niantic..).

I already have the AP but I just have the medals stopping me. 2 gold medals to be exact. Closest are fielding (200~ fields left) and unique hacks (900~)/unique captures (~500). The later two options are slightly closer as I went on a rather long walking trip through The Hague today. Resulting in ~450 unique hacks and ~100 unique captures. Meaning that if I actually get the remaining unique hacks in time level 11 before the 15th is actually totally possible. And about 9 hours of walking, good for about 40km~.

Forgot to share this earlier this week, but as planned I reached level 11 earlier this week. Now here with that gold innovator and a rather quick step towards level 12!

Thanks +Google. This notification was already annoying as it is (shows up when you have a custom CA installed). But to make it even more annoying as of the latest Android L dev preview it is no longer removable... Seriously thanks... Why even bother giving the user the ability to add custom root certificates if you're gonna bug them like this...

Well, that's annoying. Let's hope it's a bug and ++Google fixes it before the official release...

I once again have a possible programming problem. Well not so much a real issue, just a possible issue of which I'm not sure if it is actually possible. As you may or may not know I'm currently in the process of rewriting my internal C++ framework to the public and I'm currently working on the simple http client. Now I sort of optimized the way this client handles gzip to use less memory than the version I'm using in my internal version. Basically when a http chunk is done (or just the new data directly from a bufferevent read callback if there is no chunking) I dump it directly into our z_stream and decompress it. I have a theory that without chunking but with gzip (sure it is rare) it may not be able to decompress it correctly because of this. I however would like to be sure this is or isn't the case before I start adding safety around it. I am aware that this explanation is kind of vague, but I hope the point is clear enough. For reference, this is the commit where I add this more efficient way of decompressing it. And while you're clicking on that link, check out the public version of this framework of course (still working on it though) https://github.com/schoentoon/tripping-cyril/commit/842a9dd74f8f2812b7a3572ea56c8328ec556e85
