With the recent changes to Ingress FS I figured it'd be nice to try help organise one again. So here we go...

ENL PoC:@Jinshei(+Sally W )
RES PoC:@RobertABT

11:00 doors open for registration with a plan to start at 11:30.
13:30 scanners down and return for scoring
Restocking portal active at 14:30

The Coffee Lab, Gloucester.

No... I meant which portal?
The Vining Warehouse (,-2.252763&z=18&pll=51.863081,-2.251464 )

Parking: Castlemeads is an option. £2 all day according to the website: and just a short walk from the docks and our starting point. Car park accessed via the A430, then follow the path to the footbridge over the river, cross the road, enter the docks, then the coffee shop will be straight ahead.

If we have issues with The coffee Lab not being open in the morning we will do sign in at "The Lord High Constable of England" (a nearby Wetherspoons with a cluster of portals)

There, but not there

This year, we have seen the centenary of the end of the First World War.  The war to end all wars. The Great War. Everyone who fought in that war is now gone, but we continue to remember the sacrifice they made, and the sacrifices that people continue to make today.

Four years after Lest We Forget, hundreds of Ingress agents from both factions came together once more on Remembrance Sunday to create a large piece of field art.  The image of Tommy was selected as he represented the regular soldier of the British army from that time.

The remembered, returned.

In remembrance of those who were there,  we support those who remain via with all proceeds to the There But Not There charity.

Due to disorganization, we have failed to get ourselves together. So we'll be restarting in February,

Specifically for my US female friends. I feel you need more puppy in your life right now. Especially having spent ten minutes on twitter and had to shut it myself, and it isn't even my country. We have the brexit fuckers, have puppy pics.

This was fabulous fun. We thought we would be out for an hour or two. Eight hours later having spent the night on a canal path without thinking to bring food or drink... Or warm coats...

A couple of weekends ago we took part in an ENL Eurovision (Eur an Aus) operation to Enlighten as many cities across the two continents, and involve many new agents. Success! as well as covering the cities of Birmingham, Coventry, Northampton, and Gloucester. We managed to get five agents their Onyx, and one his Platinum fielding badge.

Total number of Fields 15, average MU 2.8mill per layer. Many thanks to all those that took part, new and old. The blue team gave us a good battle, credit to them, most of our fields missed the CP's, but we still got it up!

Roll Call:-

It looked something like this at its peak:-

Poor sleep triggers viral loneliness and social rejection*

Poor sleep can literally kill your social life. Researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, have found that sleep-deprived people feel lonelier and less inclined to engage with others, avoiding close contact in much the same way as people with social anxiety. Worse still, that alienating vibe makes sleep-deprived individuals more socially unattractive to others. Moreover, well-rested people feel lonely after just a brief encounter with a sleep-deprived person, potentially triggering a viral contagion of social isolation. The findings, which will be published August 14 in the journal Nature Communications, are the first to show a two-way relationship between sleep loss and becoming socially isolated, shedding new light on a global loneliness epidemic. "We humans are a social species. Yet sleep deprivation can turn us into social lepers," said study senior author Matthew Walker, a UC Berkeley professor of psychology and neuroscience. Notably, researchers found that brain scans of sleep-deprived people as they viewed video clips of strangers walking toward them showed powerful social repulsion activity in neural networks that are typically activated when humans feel their personal space is being invaded. Sleep loss also blunted activity in brain regions that normally encourage social engagement. "The less sleep you get, the less you want to socially interact. In turn, other people perceive you as more socially repulsive, further increasing the grave social-isolation impact of sleep loss," Walker added. "That vicious cycle may be a significant contributing factor to the public health crisis that is loneliness."

On a bright sunny day, seven agents set out to brighten the world, bringing a burst of colour to the city of Gloucester. With much planning and hours spent by dedicated players hacking keys, the seven met where the four roads met, the historic centre of an ancient city.

One hour of linking, followed by drinks and food to revive the overheated agents, and the Gloucester Ingress Starburst was born. 234 links, and 34 km travelled.
