  1. Nano's are so small, there practically virtuals.
  2. I noticed a minor issue with the all finds query the other day. If I have five normal PQ's scheduled on a given day, I can run the all finds query, either before or after the other PQ's run and it works, no problem. But if I have already run four PQ's, then the all finds query, the system will not let me schedule a fifth PQ for that day. Not a big issue but a little inconsistent.
  3. Can we please stop with such comments. The only ppl who NEED cache data is Jeremy and the staff of Groundspeak because they make there livings using it. For the rest of us caching is our hobby, we don't need it but like having it. If it makes someone happy having the data for the caches in there home territory why not.
  4. What I would rather see is rather than the whole state, how about everything within 100 miles of your home coordinates. With possibly the following restrictions. 1) You run only such query per week. 2) It must be centered on your home coordinators. 3) Your home coordinates must not have been modified in the last 7 days. Right now I set up 14 PQ's to get all the caches within 60 miles of my home.
  5. How about us border dwellers... Assuming such as system were implemented (I am not going to hold my breath), run it for your home state, change your home coordinates to across the boarder, then run it again.
  6. Understood, right now to map out an area that requires multiple PQ's the only efficient way of doing it is multiple queries with the same center point and radius divided by placement dates. Its a technique I use a lot (right now I have 14 PQ's setup that way to map out my home area, and that's only a 60 mile radius). With circles there is no other way because to do otherwise would have lots overlap or gaps. But just look at the number of times it comes up in this forum, its not a very intuitive idea. But if we could setup rectangular areas where the edges are precisely defined it would be a very useful and more intuitive way to cover an area. When I have planned out my caching road trips, being able to map out my route using this sort of technique would have been much easier. Now if you could define two coordinates and then specify that they are either the corners of a rectangle or the ends of a line where its to map out a specified distance either side, that would be very useful.
  7. When editing, click the box with the label 'My profile details are written in HTML format'.
  8. If all the caches in your area are going missing knowing who is on the watch list is not going to help. With instant e-mail notification and PQ's a cache thief has all the information they need without ever bookmarking or even visiting the cache page. Now if there is a local cacher who just has a something against you, having an idea you might be on to them could persuade them to stop, but for someone who is truely outside the community there is not much you can do.
  9. I think a wap link would be useful for some users. But on my phone, it can receive emails but I can't follow the links, even to the wap site. Having the waypoint code would at least allow me to look it up.
  10. The concern I would have is if I was trying to set up two queries with rectangular regions next to each other, I would like them to butt up against each other but not overlap. With a center coordinate and then a distance it would be difficult to calculate what the exact distance would be. Having a center point and boundary where things would be contained would be powerful and for those smart enough to be able to use this forum would not be a challenge, but I worry about those users who are not as savvy. If the query generator really needed a center point to operate it could always calculate the center of the defined rectangle.
  11. Personally I find the 'do not include caches...' a bit backwards, I would rather see: [ ] only include caches North of ______ [ ] only include caches South of ______ [ ] only include caches East of ______ [ ] only include caches West of ______ Maybe something like:
  12. To say that someone has logged the same cache twice has committed a mortal sin and is in league with Satan grossly understates the seriousness of this offence. (Sorry I could not resist)

    I ran into a problem recently where the time a GPX file was generated was stored in the file as GMT and since I was trying to use it on a system that is working on PDT (GMT - 7) and the gpx file was generated late in the evening it appeared as if it was generated in the future. Just wondering if fixing that would be on the to do list.
  14. I used to use a query like this but ran into problems when our very dedicated and hard working local approvers fall behind and caches take longer than a week to get approved.
  15. They finally ran at 3:10pm today, thanks.
  16. My regularly scheduled queries still have not run.
  17. I assumed that since the OP was asking for a GPX file to load into his palm that he was going to use cachemate and GSAK, since most cachers use those program to access the data on the palm.
  18. My last query ran at 4/15/2006 5:46:19 AM, my sunday queries did not run.
  19. That would not work for me, it would take me at least 11 PQ's to map out a 75km (47 mile) Radius from my home. Best you could do is from the search listing, open each cache page and click the download GPX button, a bit more tedious but it will work.
  20. My Regular PQ's ran last week at 2AM, its almost 9am and they still have not run.
  21. Even if you use this method (which I do by the way) its possible that you will miss some of the logs. I have PQ's setup to run once a week for all the caches within a certain distance from my home, if a cache gets more than 5 logs per a week, I will miss some of them.
  22. I tried to download a page full cache data in the form of a LOC data and after pressing "Check All" then "Download Waypoints" I get the following screen Server Error in '/' Application. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Column 'PublisherId' does not belong to table Table.

  23. It would be nice if you could filter on any note type, by yourself or by others.
  24. True, but its still an extra step we did not have to do before. And the way the 'Quote' button confuses me, I keep hitting the one on the response before the one I want to quote, but thats just something I will have to get used to.
