  1. Is it possible to remove 'awesomeness' from the filter on the Oregon 650? Thanks
  2. As the topic title suggests, the screen on our Oregon 300 is not responding. Any ideas? It switches on but that's all. Hard reset isn't possible. Thanks
  3. Currently on 144 finds (still only 13 published hides) We ALWAYS use more than one type of device Between the two of us we have Oregon 300,Oregon 550,iPhone 4 and Samsung Galaxy S4 running WhereYouGo. I could add Mio P500 to that list as well but to be honest, I haven't used it for a few years now. M
  4. Strewth! Why dig up a thread that's been dead for three years?
  5. OK, I use this GreaseMonkey script I then preview the Events only PQ I mentioned earlier and step through each page at a time. This saves the event distance etc within the Firefox settings I can then go to the http://www.geocaching.com/calendar/default.aspx page an I get a nicely filtered page like this: This might all seem a bit long-winded and cumbersome but compare that to the worse-than-useless normal calendar page. Go on, click HERE to see what an unusable mess it is! I use it all the time. I have never had any feedback about the script from anyone else despite it having been download 1,325 times!
  6. Apart from having notifications set up for events, I also have a PQ for all UK Events which have not yet been attended. There's always some muppet who logs an Attended instead of a Will Attend but generally it shows me all the future events without having to mess around with setting dates. I can then preview the PQ in the map and see if there are any forthcoming events in areas I might like to go to. I also use the PQ for something else which is very useful but difficult to explain so I shan't bother because I doubt anyone would be interested anyway... M
  7. Sounds like one of those never-ending staircases
  8. My guess is that the problem is more straightforward that all those suggestions. The Etrex only supports 6 character cache codes so some are being truncated and overwriting others nearby which have the same code once truncated. Truncated ones on the etrex will then not appear on the website as they are not valid codes The solution is to load the PQ into your etrex using GSAK and the drop2 option to remove 'GC' off the start of the codes This thread will now get locked because over zealous moderators say that we are not allowed to discuss GSAK M
  9. There's a puddle in the foreground of this photo taken while doing Without Whitemoor wander....
  10. Gosh! I always plan months in advance and translate a short list of must-do caches complete with 'reserves' in case of DNFs. Mind you, we do like to find as many different cache types per country which makes things a whole lot more complicated! B) M
  11. I had the chance of FTF on a couple of Archived Virtuals last year... I didn't bother in the end though. They are still loggable for anyone who wants to risk it. I know a cacher who logged a find on a different Archived Virtual last year but his log was deleted and the listing locked. Mark
  12. It's possible if it's not locked. I have a bookmark list with all the Archived UK/Ireland Virtuals on it and I get notified whenever anyone logs a find. Sometimes logs get deleted (not necessarily by the CO either) and sometimes they remain... M
  13. I tried to play with intercache on my Galaxy S4 and got nowhere. On the one occasion the site actually let me log in (it nearly always says the password is incorrect), I was unable to get an internet connection. This was outside in my road not deep in the words etc. I think I'll stick with Wherigos (the icon is so much nicer than a boring question mark as well ) M
  14. Personally, I never use Advanced Search I just do everything with PQs. You can specify D/T there easily enough. Just previewing them on the maps will show you where the closest ones are. There's also the Project GC Matrix search tool: http://project-gc.com/Maps/mapmatrix/?profile_name=L8HNB&country=United+Kingdom&region=&county=&location=&max_distance=&submit=Filter&submitbutton=Filter M
  15. The difference then though, was that the cachers were mainly (if not all) from a technical background with a genuine interest in out-door and GPS based activities. They can't really be compared to newbies who discover Geocaching by sitting in their bedroom browsing the iPhone app store looking for a new free app to play with. Mark
  16. Get whatever maps you need from here: http://garmin.openstreetmap.nl/
  17. GC1F4Z2 Motorway Mayhem M5 Sedgemoor Services Southbound is in Somerset in GSAK
  18. I think saying S**t in German is not as strong as it is in English. I did a Wherigo the other day written by a German (with and English language option) and it used it quite a bit. Marriage proposal in Ben Nevis? Oh dear this can only mean it's all downhill from now on! :D M
  19. Discussing GSAK ist verboten!
  20. Well I've fixed this particular script now. It just seemed strange to me how they stopped using the guid in links on one page but continue to use it in a functionally very similar page Mark
  21. The Event Calender page is not fit for purpose. This is fact! not just my opinion. Some time ago I wrote a GreaseMonkey script which stored distances etc in the 'nearest.aspx' page using the GUID as a key and then displayed them next to the event details on the Calender page. It also filtered out all countries I had no interest in. Sounds messy but it worked fine for a few years until the last site update; now guid is no longer used in the nearest.aspx page (it uses a combination of gc code and name instead) but guid IS still used in the calender page rendering my GM script useless So, like I say, 'Improve' things by all means but at least be consistent! :mad: I am under no illusion that this will make one jot of difference.
  22. In the meantime, load your PQ into GSAK, filter on all caches by the one cacher you want to ignore and then add to the ignore list using the API tools. Takes a matter of seconds and you can then ignore hundreds. I do this all a lot for one reason or another. The more 'positive' reason is to remove swathes of puzzle caches from the PQs. I don't want to exclude all puzzle caches as some might be 'bonus' caches or 'challenge' caches etc
  23. Feel free to move this somewhere more appropriate if necessary... One of my GM scripts is failing since the last site update. For some reason the script is firing three or four times when the nearest.aspx loads, but only once on the forum pages so it's not a fault with the script or my version of FireFox or GreaseMonkey You can try this with a simple script containing just alert() and see how many times the message box pops up Anyone else had this problem or know how to resolve it? Thanks Mark
