(Disappointed) This is cyser (meade/fruit) mix that i bought at Millstone Cidery in Munkton at the start of the new year. Loved the location of this place and the whole aura of wild fermented ciders. Their ciders/cysers tasted good enough in our tasting session that I left w/ about $150 in bottles. few weeks ago, noticed this funk growing. contacted the cidery, who said it was all normal and wouldn't affect the product. took it to a gathering. opening the bottle shot out half the product, and the remainder tasted really terrible w/ an unbearably fizzy texture. Manufacturing mistakes happen, so none of this is a big deal, especially with wild fermentation (which I've done quite a bit of myself)... but then I wrote the company again, and again asked for compensation (like a replacement). this time they have chosen not to answer at all. super disappointing. the owner seems to think the customer assumes the risk. he did suggest in my first request for compensation that I could drive the bottle to Monkton, but 2 hours of driving isn't worth a $30 bottle.  Won't be recommending this company to anyone else, even though the other bottles we bought were all fine... customer service matters.

Kieran Foley design, Bosphorus, complete! In cashmere and extra fine merino, this measures 76" long by 19" wide. There are about 18 blue combos, 15 neutral combos, and about 13 colours up the center. This is about 6 weeks of knitting on size US3 needles with 3 strands of fine lace weight held together. Six balls of yarn are used on each row. The lacework and stranding is actually easy stuff, but the yarn management takes some practice.

Question about the scanner... when you are attacking.. .what is the percentage that shows up in red indicating? Is it how much damage you've done to the portal overall? I thought for awhile it was damage to me, and then for awhile it was damage to the res I was on... and neither makes sense. Wondering if it is a useful piece to watch. and what does a critical hit really mean?

So.. how can this be??? Is this an ADA flip? Seems kind of bizarre for that. I thought you can only lay down two mods.. indeed, I was reminded of that this morning when I tried to shore up downtown Sykesville but already had two shield on.  what am I missing? This is the same smurf who has the portal in (according to security) illegal territory. He seems decent enough, hasn't bugged us.. The other portal is Springfield Hospital which is really not near anything and yet he's laid down a heat sink on it.. and says he doesn't work there (my reasonable explanation for why he hasn't encountered security)... ok, so what am I missing ?

Well.. our first plan was foiled by Springfield Hospital security.. so we had to ditch that portal in our plan... but regrouped and were able to capture and field 13 portals using the Maxfield Ingress s/w. Great program!  It would work really well with more players.

This is our 2nd time running into security there, so not sure if we should report it as an illegal portal.. they say no one is allowed on the road the portal is on... but Res player terpdog seems to have no problem.

Well.. after sitting unchallenged for three weeks or so, making those extra fields seemed to have raised the attention of Pitbullhooligan.. but they only replaced them with lvl1 resos, so if we can get past our water well today, we are likely to go take our frustrations out and get them back. :) otherwise, we're out of town for a few weeks.

Hi. Thanks to Ard Shagart and LunarTick for the warm welcome. We are a family of 3 playing as two agents: knitcode and ununbium. Knitcode is level 5 and ununbium level 4. We live in Sykesville off the river and work down in Laurel, so we are mostly in S. Carroll County/N. HoCo.
