Another instance of Ingress intel map brokenness:
https://www.ingress.com/intel?ll=44.35226,-72.741197&z=17

there is a portal that is maintaining links, yet it only has 3 resonators

Have Ingress News reports replaced media objects from hacks?
I haven't hacked out a media object since news items started popping up in my scanner app.The media objects had the advantage of you could look at them when it was convenient (and recycle them for a few XM). You have to look for news if you dismiss it from your scanner when it comes up when you don't want to look at it.

Sometimes out away from home and the office and see something that looks like a portal, hack it, and end up with a key that I probably will never get a chance to use.  What do others do with keys that they have little use for? Recycle them? Create a list of keys to offer to others?

I got 65% - this is a hard quiz!


We took VT Rte 15 from Jefferson to Burlington to do some bike riding. The GPS suggested a different route at first that it said involved dirt roads, but we had and followed directions that kept us on paved roads. On the way back the GPS again said that dirt roads were necessary, we ignored it, intending to follow the directions that we had. We got off of I89 at VT15, which was an exit before the GPS route, and it calculated a new route. Though we tried to follow VT15, we missed a turn somewhere when the GPS directed us a different way. We found ourselves in an area that didn't have the shopping centers that we had seen on the way out, but the view was nice. Since we were time limited and the computed route showed that we would get back in time with only minutes to spare we didn't try turning around. We knew we were going the right way due to the location of the mountains and the compass indicator. After a couple of turns we found ourselves on the promised dirt road. Then it got more interesting as the road got steep and then narrowed to one lane. Eventually the road returned to two lanes and we got back to pavement. After a steep down hill and a sharp turn we were on VT108, which is where we wanted to be.

I guess it's time to either buy a new GPS or new maps for the current GPS.
