  1. GC1F4Z2 Motorway Mayhem M5 Sedgemoor Services Southbound is in Somerset in GSAK
  2. 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
  3. Discussing GSAK ist verboten!
  4. 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
  5. 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.
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. Disagree totally on that point! Yes, Groundspeak and Garmin may have given up on it but it's still going strong with the phone based players and web-based development tools. We've =Wherigo+Cache&hidden_fromyyyy=&hidden_frommm=&hidden_fromdd=&hidden_toyyyy=&hidden_tomm=&hidden_todd=&bml_owner=&bml_guid=&submit=Filter&submitbutton=Filter"]set a few and =Wherigo+Cache&fromyyyy=&frommm=&fromdd=&toyyyy=&tomm=&todd=&submit=Filter&submitbutton=Filter"]found a few and the range of ideas for game play never ceases to amaze me! Mark
  9. I have to agree that it's blummin' heavy handed locking a thread about FindStatsGen! FindStatsGen goes hand-in-hand with caching and if Groundspeak's own stats pages weren't so pathetic there would be no need for anyone to use it! The OP or other cachers might have wanted to comment on the Project-GC link I posted or is that verboten as well? Mark
  10. You can do it using project gc http://project-gc.com/Profile/ProfileStats?profile_name=lathama&getprofile=Get+profile Alternatively, here's a cribsheet I wrote a few years ago for a local cacher http://www6.brinkster.com/coolsite/findstatgen.htm
  11. On an unrelated note, his car's odometer reading recently passed 200,000 miles The fifth time he's had a car do that Mark
  12. I think the 'mileage of Trackables passing through the cache will be reasonably accurate' reason is nonsense. If that was the case Multis would have the same restriction. I think the main reason is that if you are planning to go to an area and see a puzzle, set about solving it only to find that the final location is miles and miles away you'd be pretty miffed. M
  13. Like you say, other major sites. Geocaching.com is in no way a 'major' site! M
  14. Don't worry about it Drop the owner an email if you like then they can then release the copy We've lost trackables in the past and most of ours have been 'lost' I don't lose any sleep over it that's for sure Alternatively just deny all knowledge M
  15. That's a shame In that case, yes Reivers is the oldest original log. (We've found the 14 of the 15 oldest UK caches)
  16. GCF0 (oldest cache in UK) has the original logbook and container Edited to add Oh yeah, I just noticed that you mentioned that cache in your post
  17. Have you tried this? I renewed my PM last week expecting to have to pay £24.99 and I got charged $29.99 I'd say, get and renew asap and set up an auto renewal while it's still a mess! Mark
  18. Heavy-handed moderation on this site is enough to kill it! I only use Facebook for Geocaching related stuff and I use my own name. Whereas this is a joint caching account. For that reason I usually communicate with the reviewers through Facebook as well. Mark
  19. I can honestly say that I have NEVER added a cache to the watchlist and then done ANYTHING with the watchlist other than click 'back' or closed the page I think the only time I remove anything is when I've received one too many emails about a cache/trackable and I click the link within the email
  20. When I click the link to add to watchlist, it then shows me the watchlist. I don't need to see the watchlist. If I am using my iPhone or something with a very slow connection it is piggin' irritating having to wait for a wage to load which I don't even want to see! It need updating so it works like the 'Add to Favorites' link So there! Yes, there is bound to be someone who likes to view their Watchlist each time they add a cache to it but I'm pretty sure they would be in the minority Mark
  21. I think my definitions would be: Meet: Pub etc, no new caches eg Brummie Meets or stanthews's monthly Wiltshire Events where attendees generally just talk about caching Event: Outdoors but where new caches are placed/released and attendees actually go caching eg Coming of age 3. (Camping events would fit in this category ) Mega Event: 500+ attendees Thanks Mark
  22. There's a tripointing site http://www.trigpointinguk.com/ which has nothing to do with Groundspeak or geocaching (although a lot of the user names will look familiar) The other option is the moving Virtual GC45CC which visits trigpoints around the UK. Any previous trigpoints can be claimed and you need to quote the YSM number in your Found It log. Have a look at the map on http://yosm.org.uk to determine what the YSM number is. However, if the trig isn't listed, you can't log it* *yet Mark
  23. All known moving caches are excluded from the souvenir scheme. Bookmark list of excluded caches: click I think these were added over time so some cachers might have souvenirs which were awarded before the cache was excluded (if you see what I mean) We have a stray Kentucky State souvenir and I have no idea which cache triggered it. Mark
  24. Would I be so brave as to suggest it's a male/female thing? I (Mr Delta68) prefer North up on the GPS whereas Mrs Delta68 prefers direction up. I have never been a map turner Mark
  25. Well, for the PQ from Bookmark list I'm CERTAIN that it used to show the distance from from home for each cache! Not so sure about the route PQs because I've only ever previewed those in order to tweak the setting to get the result as close to 1000 as possible
