  1. I can't seem to get to the 2.54 update on my Mac. The webpage is a windows .exe file, and Garmin Webupdater tells me I have the latest version (which is not 2.54). Any ideas? Or do I just wait for it to propogate to the Webupdater?
  2. I was pulling weight loss advertisements out of caches this weekend. Now THAT's annoying!
  3. Their support is for their customers only, not their end users. They told me to ask here. Well, specifically to ask the board owner and/or administrator.
  4. I registered, but I'm not allowed to start a new topic.
  5. Can you more formally explain what it is you are trying to accomplish. I want a "Get New" that excludes all the languages and regions that I'm not interested in. Or, said another way, I'd like to customize the Get New search to only return the forums that I want to see what's new in.
  6. Anyone know how to do this?
  7. This is going to sound harsh, but the only thing that can destroy a relationship is the people in it.
  8. Funny thing is, it's a question that google can answer for anyone immediately.
  9. If found this which should help Mac users avoid the problem. You'll need to do this on the internal memory volume and on every SD card you use: I think this is a really bad idea. Why would you remove the safeguard that keeps you from accidentally deleting files? It's too easy to hit cmd-shift-delete and then return to completely empty the trash while in the finder. It can't be nearly as great a burden as it would when you accidentally delete files without any confirmation dialog.
  10. It's a good thing they pointed out which was the can opener and which was the can, otherwise I would have been completely lost!
  11. Close and helpful, but not what I was hoping for. Thanks for the link!

    Really? Where are all these viruses?
  13. Here's what I have in mind: http://forums.Groundspeak.com/GC/index.php?act=Search&CODE=getnew&Exclude=14,17,18,19,20,21,22,24,25,26,27,28,41,29,45,56,30,31,55,32,33,34,35,60,61,62,63 Except it's changing my "&" into "& amp;"
  14. I don't see a place to post Forums specific questions, so if this is the wrong place, please move. Can I generate a custom Get New URL that will exclude specific forums? On my other forum, which is vBulletin based, the URL looks like this: http://www.dgrin.com/search.php?do=getnew&...xclude=12,25,31 Is there an equivalent here? Thanks!
  15. d'oh!!! Thanks. And, sorry.
  16. Slightly OT: is the best way to get these caches into my Colorado to send them one by one? How do I use a bookmarked list most efficiently? I think that you can send upload a pocket query to the Colorado without any alteration. That would be the easiest method. But how do you PQ a Bookmark List?

  18. Thanks, Brian. I've only been out twice, nabbed 7 finds, and I already know I'm a traditionalist. My first time out I went on a trail I've hiked dozens of times and had that "Wow, I didn't know this was here" moment. It was just a tree a bit off the trail, but it's a nice shady spot to beat the heat here in southern california. That's what excites me. The next day I took in a stunning view and didn't find the cache. I'll be sure to go back and get a find on that cache, but the view and the hike were all well worth it. I read briansnat's remarks and had to smile. He may be right if you go back to 2001 or so. By the time I started in 2003, there was already the divide between what brian calls traditionalist and what he call liberalist and for me it was best exemplified by a couple of cachers right in DavidTOs backyard. They even made a movie about it. There have always been some geocachers who prefer hikes and others that prefer urban hide. And a least as long as I've been caching there have always been some who enjoy finding caches just for the sake of finding them (often referred to a just for the smiley) and others who don't care as much about finding the cache as about the adventure of being taken to a new place or area. One thing that has changed is that there are more of every type of cache. Whether you like urbans or hikes you'll find many more caches than you used to. Some will complain that there are so many urbans in uninteresting places like mall parking lots or hidden with out much thought that it is harder to find the urban caches that either are in interesting places or that have been hidden so that the hunt is challenging or perhaps in some humorous manner. It is perhaps the lack of an ability, short of reading the descriptions and logs of each cache, to filter for the caches you enjoy the most that causes the most discussion and debate in this forum. Great info. Thanks!
  19. You know, I had stumbled across this before I really understood how valuable it is. Thanks for the link and the reminder. I'm going to do that. It's going to be awesome!
  20. True. And the three years since this book came out are an eternity.
  21. I did the same. Which means, for me, that I read it last week. It's out of date. The list of suggested prizes conflicts with the guidelines here. This site has had a major update since the book was written. GPS technology has changed. It still refers to now grandfathered cache types. I had already read a lot on the Groundspeak site, so I knew plenty, but I wanted to read the book to get a more complete picture. It sure was helpful, but just not current.
  22. I'm trying to get maps from this site into my Colorado 400t, and I'm lost. They download with .img extensions, but say they are NDIF Disk Images, as opposed to a standard Disk Image. They're supposed to load on the Garmin, AFAIK. I'm on a Mac, running 10.5.2. Any help?
