  2. Just an FYI in case there are still folks left interested in locationless caches: Somewhere In Time --- GC769F Today's San Jose Mercury News reports about two time capsules to be "launched" in San Jose Fore Station #1 to celebrate its 150th anniversary. One will be opened in 25 and one in 50 years. I am sure this can be somehow used for the above mentioned cache ;-)
  3. Boulter, I love it. Not sure I will use it often, but for these Multis such as West Side Story this is just the right thing! Thanks.
  4. Hi there, I am looking for a good soul wanting to take a picture in front of a sign stating that San Francisco is a Sister City of Sydney. I have yet to take the picture here in San Francisco, but would like to get in touch with a geocacher in Sydney to do the same. This way we can then both log the locationless cache. Waypoint: GC4226 Please contact me directly under my profile - nostrada Thanks!
  5. Haman Hangout Yes Way, Jose! Dr. Mahoney Baloney Less is Moore All of them are evil. In their own ways. I am sure there are heaps more. But these got me for a while.
  6. Return of the King Just in case anyone missed it - it is out! http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?ID=107000
  7. At this point, the organizers of BADGES are: vdbalamo DavidT21 & Fisherwoman dgreno TeamJiffy ChrissySkyking + Blaze
  8. I will mail you tomorrow an order for 10 coins. Please count me in. Thanks for the design and effort, Bobkat92.
  9. No word on the release date of RotK, but I am sure we all agree with your request. I doubt that the fellowship will be able to move this quickly and would expect us to tackle this cache one bright, crisp and sunny Sunday morning in January.
  10. I got it from The Master himself. The answer is yes, Jif and Fy. As The Rat mentioned, we had a great day doing "The Two Towers" cache yesterday. Get some friends together, take some books along and do this cache. mbrill has been very helpful and it is a great pleasure to deal with a friendly cache owner willing to confirm coordinates and to exchange thoughts. (not that we ever asked for more than a verification of the start coordinates, but nevertheless) Thanks!
  11. I like the layout, thanks for all the work!
  12. Friends, Seven geocacher parties gathered and a total of 13 folks embarked on the quest of the Fellowship of the Ring. Let it be known that we succeeded. This excellent multi by mbrill had quite a few visitors this Sunday noon. If you haven't done this cache yet, get a handful of friends together, take the book along and set off for a true adventure. It can be done in less than 5 hours or can take a few weeks. This cache hunt was the prime example why geocaching can be such a wonderful experience. Even when critters are guarding the cache site! WeBeDnD's account of the quest would make JRR proud. MotorBug summed it up very nicely: quote:Found new friends, took wonderful memories, and signed the log. Our thanks to mbrill for putting this cache together. The Fellowship will tackle TTT next. _____________________________ ... where is it?
  13. That depends on the time the page was last rendered, see the bottom line: Last Generated: 10/28/2003 4:34:41 PM (GMT) And just before the logs start, you have this line: Cache find counts are based on the last time the page generated. Therefor - if a cache hasn't been touched since a year you will find the cache count for the folks from a year ago. I guess since it is very resource intensive to calculate those numbers they do it only when the cache page gets updated and then store the whole page somewhere. This whay they do not need to run the count for all the logs on the first page everytime someone clicks on the page. They just pull it out of storage and display it. Makes sense? This is my story. Cheers _____________________________ ... where is it?

At this time in our national security it would be the best if we all just stay at home and watch TV. This is all we need. Oh, and surrender any caches to the nearest local Police station, of course.

  15. Marky, it is a proxy server you run on your Win machine and direct your browser to go through it. It then allows you to set up rules to intercept the incoming HTML traffic and customize the data to your liking. I can for example strip ads out of the traffic, prevent pop up, freeze GIF files, prevent Java script from doing things and more. One example is that I change the way the My Cache Page is presented and I removed the table with the found travel bugs all together. I also added a search function to the page, just by inserting the correct form element in the HTML of the page. One starting point would be http://www.proxomitron.info/. The product is free and not officially supported. I use it also to streamline the my.yahoo.com startpage and remove all the crap I am not interested in, just leaving the stocks, URL and news I want. I cam mail you a screenshot of my page, if you want. Anyway, it is a nice tool but it takes some time to get the configuration sorted out if you want to customize it. _____________________________ ... where is it?
  16. I would love this. I wrote for my first multi/puzzle caches some detailed notes to the approver, and of course (s)he deleted them prior to publishing the cache. Only problem, I didn't copy notes and had to redo some of the stuff. Silly, I know. But it would be really handy if I can leave notes attached to me cache visible only to me. Thanks _____________________________ ... where is it?
  17. I do not have that many travel bugs but got so tired of all these non essential messages about Premium Services and what a Watchlist is and what not else. I am using Proxomitron (Win only) to strip out all the stuff and present the page the way I want it to look. My TBs, search for zip code, filtered search for zip code, FIND from for waypoint and name and my caches. That is it, nothing else. Clean layout, all thanks to spending some time trying things out with Proxo. Of course, once the page gets totally overhauled I will have to revisit this and adjust Proxo - or - hopefully - can do away with it for this page all together. My 3 cents. _____________________________ ... where is it?
  18. DOH. Thanks for the proper linky, Dogastus Yes, I would assume there are a few 12 year old folks on /. - As stated, I read the comments on a threshold of 2, only comments moderated up will be displayed. Anything else is invisible. Nice feature indeed. Ok, so I am a nerd for hanging out there, but I just dig the topics they post. Cheers! _____________________________ ... where is it?

  21. may this be the opportunity to suck up a bit to Hemlock. You got my vote ;-) _____________________________ ... where is it?
  22. Just a FYI - Slashdot has an article up on Online Mapping Sites http://ask.slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=03/10/20/2223200&mode=nested&tid=126&tid=95 There is of course lots of noise there, but you can configure to read the threads on a threshold of 2 for example to filter out some of the more silly comments. Anyway, happy caching and don't get lost. _____________________________ ... where is it?
  23. yup. I can not confirm, but once you know more details, I can tell you if I can join. Mostly Traditional caches, no puzzles, I assume? _____________________________ ... where is it?

  25. quote:Originally posted by GeoROCKS!:Yeah, but still they monitor closely without having to be notified. Many times I've created Members Only caches and watched at least one admin visit my cache page several times over the week or so after approval, probably as a method of monitoring my edits to ensure that the cache is not vastly different from the one they approved. My point is that I admire them for being so thorough despite the abuse they get... How can you see who looks at your page? Just curious. _____________________________ ... where is it?
