Fursuiters should wear touchscreen gloves i stead their usually paw gloves.
I could also lend my 10" tablet to someone who has bad sight in a fursuit.
That device has no internet uplink, but it can use wifi to share internet from a mobile phone nearby.

Don't forget that Ingress pretty much 'requires' a GPS module / fix to prevent location 'drifting', otherwise 3G/LTE triangulation's deviation -plus- the calculated Wi-Fi tethering accuracy may turn out to be hell. :3

Don't worry, the tablet has its own GPS reciver.
It is not as precise than the one in my mobile phone, you would have a drift of about 2 or 5 meters.
But this is way better than opperating a small smartphone in a fursuit.

It would have 3G, too, but i did not inserted a SIM card because a second SIM card additional to the one on my mobile phone would cost extra money.
So if someone wants to lend this device, he/she could also use the SIM out of his own mobile device within my 10" tablett.

I played ingress with it for some time, when my mobile phone was sent to repair for some weeks ...

I like this! Being a L8 frog after all :)

Seems like at ConFuzzled, Smurfs outnumbered Frogs, but at EF it looks like Frogs will outnumber Smurfs!

Either way, it'd be great to go for a wander, capture some portals, change colour a few times to level some up... This is going to do wonders for the unique captures and unique hack counts :D

And afterwards, an appropriately coloured cocktail at the hotel bar? ;)

Now that the schedule is up, want to plan a date and time for a cross-faction Eurofurence meetup? :)

Since Vixus and i are members of the security team, we have a lot of duty during the convention.
So i suggest one of the the following time slots, because these are the only times we're both not on duty.

  • Wednessday before 15:00
  • Friday 15:15 to 16:30
  • Friday evening after 20:00
edit:formated as list

Right, PERSONALLY, I'd like to see Come Find Me LIVE which is at 8pm on Friday, out of the dates/times you mentioned. But Friday 1515-1630 is good with me, and Wednesday should be too (I arrive on Tuesday anyway).

I ("yimjun") had my fun as well. Find the link to my page in an earlier post.

Alone while waiting in the check out queue I switched the central portal of the lobby 5 times or so  ;D

Who is Tgoof, BTW?
