Last week ended up being a busy week, possibly the business of the year. But I was able to start the week off with something that was at least positive.
After two years, and well after many agents who started after me, I finally reached Level 12 in Ingress.
And I've been so busy that this is the first I've been able to actually do anything with it.
May the fourth, normally a day when I think people expect me to be going off and doing something related to Star Wars. Honestly, I tend to skip a lot of the geekier holidays because I'm too busy or just forget. And this year, and I don't know if it was by design, May the fourth aligned to be 60 days after the Ingress Sojourner badge was released. This was the day that everyone who had been able to hack every single day since the badge became active was going to hit Gold level.
Ingress badges are currently divided into 5 tiers: Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum and Black. And after level 8, gaining levels is a combination of so much Action Points and so many badges of certain levels. And because I've been playing casually, getting AP has been easy. But making progress on badges has been more difficult.
