Google Nose is a failure, What good is this technology if I can't even get the Scent of Coffee... Aroma is a HUGE part of the coffee experience. I believe this is miss for Google...

CM is a great project, it's people ask for so very little... I just wish I was in a position to help out more than with just spreading the word :/
 
We normally do not put personal posts on this page, as they can be complicated matters and usually do not pertain to CyanogenMod news. That said, something is affecting us in a way it really hasn’t affected us before, and it’s hitting very close to home.

Within CyanogenMod, we have dozens of maintainers and hundreds of contributors; none of whom are paid employees. Yes, we get donations, but despite the jokes of yachts, helicopters, and private planes, it is really just enough to cover operating costs for servers and hosting. Occasionally, there is enough leftover in the team account to buy a device for a developer. What we are getting at here is that CyanogenMod is not rich.

There are, however, times where we wish that we were a full fledged company. It’d be nice if CM could pay for some full-time positions or help out team members when they are in need. Currently, we are experiencing a painful reminder of this limitation.

A member has had a pretty serious problem fall into his lap. +Ryan Scott (aka ChiefzReloaded), a device maintainer, has a rare infection known as Necrotizing Fasciitis. This infection is caused by bacteria that eats skin, fat, and other tissue; it is literally a flesh-eating disease. Ryan is going through the treatments that he needs to keep him alive, but unfortunately, that treatment quickly becomes very expensive to deal with, and it is no exception for Ryan. This disease has placed an incredible strain on him and his family, including his young children. The CyanogenMod team would love to be able to hand out a fistful of cash and help out as much as possible.

Love from the Community
Some members of our community have started a few initiates to benefit Ryan and his family. As we are unable to help out financially, we would like to lend our support for these community initiatives, and help spread the word.

+Polo Heysquierdo has started an Indiegogo page for Ryan at http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/scott-family-fund. This page has some more details on Ryan’s condition and a method for you to help the effort.

Additionally, a huge community favorite and someone who the CyanogenMod team loves, +Deth Becomes You has started an auction with proceeds aimed at helping out Ryan. https://plus.google.com/u/0/107290707477228775864/posts/BYfaDHZeJKt

And last, but not least, you can send donations and words of support to Ryan directly via paypal. chiefz.reloaded@gmail.com

We understand that not everyone can help, but even if you can’t, sending Ryan and his family some kind words and sharing this message will go equally as far.

Thank You,
The CyanogenMod Team

A call for help

So at this point my local group has seen a population explosion of Enlightened individuals. As an enlightened myself one would think that more joining the fold would be welcomed, and it is. However at this point the Resistance in the area can hardly be called resistance. The sheer volume of Green on the streets is near insurmountable. 

I've considered a faction change but have a few personal reasons against it. So I've though about helping the Resistance bolster their numbers in the local area. However in 2 weeks of looking for players I've not done too well.

I thought I'd throw this up here and see if anyone has any suggestions on helping the other side get some traction membership wise...

Thanks!

Any tips for dealing with GPS spoofers? moral in the local group is plumetting all because one account that never drops more than an L4 is every other day rolling though at speeds bordering on impossible taking out portals that are "lynch pins" for multiple fields, usually not finishing them off, only dropping them enough to break fields and links. Turns out he's only leaving 1 portal with 2 Resonators on it, the rest are being destroyed captured and upgraded to 4 L3/ 4L4.

When the Portals are taken all 8 deployed Resonators are at minimum distance nearly touching the portal.

+Joe Philley Just an update in case you were curious. I got my wife set up with her code and we took a drive out to pick up some milk. In that 10 minute trip she netted her first portal and link (I've yet to get a link, my luck in the portal key department for the last week and a half has been terrible). When we got home I asked her what she thought, the answer "I had a blast we should go for a longer drive after work tomorrow"

So again to you fine people over at Niantic Labs I say thank you for this truly addicting and enjoyable experience and keep up the great work!
