Yeah, the glyphs take a little practice, but can be worth it if you're farming.

Ah.  Gotcha.  Well, at least there's parkour.

Interesting.  What do you hope to learn from watching them?

Incidentally, I won't be around much today.  I've been volunteered for some all day training thing.

So, another thing you probably know, but I just found out about: When you're attacking a portal, hold down the "Fire" button.  You'll hear a "whoop whoop" sound, and a white circle will shrink to a point centered around your position.  If you release the button when the circle is the smallest, your shot will get a hit bonus, up to 20%.  You can easily take out an L8 resonator with L6 bursters this way.

-flippin' smurfs like it ain't no thang.

Proposed alternate hypothesis: Your media provider has such a complete monopoly that they don't need to provide customer service, and instead find it cheaper to give you the runaround?  What you see as incompetence, they see as a cost-saving solution?

It sucks you can't get 'em electronically.

This process (80% of the stuff lawyers do) is about to get automated by deep learning systems which can do the job infinitely faster and an order of magnitude more accurately.


Have you tried turning the forum off, and then turning it back on again?

And then Junk became Prime Minister.

... That's how it works, right?

If you're going to do some Covert Ops in the name of Discordia,
keep your head down, and Keep Your Fucking Mouth Shut.
A mowhawk is as good as a target during Police Action.

The wise spags toss a wrench into the Machine™,
and then walk away.
They strike against Authority, but don't put it on the Internet.
They subvert the paradigm, but don't stick around to watch.
They mindfuck the people, but don't pat themselves on the back.

If two people know a thing, it is not a secret.
Getting away with it means staying away from it.


Wow.  Strong contender for best thing I've seen all day.
