In "awesome news that I missed first time around"....

This is absolutely mind-blowing, but at the same time completely unsurprising. A mechanical structure like a gear isn't all that useful in nature, when a breakdown means dying (basically the reason we haven't evolved wheels). But a replaceable gear? Awesome.

Ultrastrike. What is it?

My sources are telling me about new weapons research coming out of secret XM labs....

From here on, it's pure speculation. Ingress is currently missing ranged and directional weapons, and both would be very useful.

The name sounds very powerful. Some form of rare airstrike capability isn't outside the range of possibility.... it would be really exciting if this was a weapon that could be used collaboratively, powered by XM from multiple players.

Simon Singh should take note: libel and defamation laws cut both ways, and in nearly every case it is the media trampling on other people.

Anyway, here's some good news.

I'm not much of a gamer, except for #Ingress, but I've seen these issues all over the web. Attitudes are hard to evolve, but this interview says some interesting and thought-provoking things about the way we rationalise.

Got this pic just before the core went critical.

I'm going to have to think about containment before I take another one apart.

I tried forcing it... not going well!

When I get the core further in, the heatsink becomes less stable, and the XM glows like crazy.

+Brandon Badger +Joe Philley - might need some expert help. Did the folks at Verum Inveniri liberate any tools for manipulating XM constructs?

I've been hacking around with a heatsink mod. I got the XM core out, and used some of the code from a Jarvis flipcard on it... having trouble reinserting the core.

I think I broke it. It's sitting there floating irritatingly just above my desk.

Can I have some more, please, +Brandon Badger ?

These symbols keep floating in front of my eyes when I close them. They seem to be burned into my eyeballs.

And they keep ruining perfectly good photos. I think I was too close to a portal when I took this picture.

Can anyone tell me what they mean?
