  1. For those who don't know what BODMAS is:


    BO - Brackets off (work out the contents of the brackets first).

    D - Division is the next highest priority

    M - Multiplication is next on the list

    A - Addition

    S - Subraction


    It's always best to write things using brackets to show in which order to do stuff because whilst (A+B/C) always means A+(B/C) it can be interpreted in the wrong way by someone who doesn't understand BODMAS.


    I always though the "O" in BODMAS stood for order as in 2^4 (2 to the power 4), for example, would follow the brackets, then would come division, etc.


    Eldest RTB has just done this at school (year 7, just started secondary) and they have the O as Other. It therefore includes powers, trig functions etc. Confused me as I was taught it stood for Of

  2. Eldest and Littlest RTB do one of these each year - we have made it part of our Christmas. It doesn't cost much and the little RTB's have to put something of their own in.


    I've always thought it linked with Cacheing well - when I first started I thought that I would set a cache where people TNL something for those more unfortunate, but the rules prohibit it.

  3. Good grief! Am I right in supposing that there are men out there who trust a woman with any sort of navigation? :P


    Worse still, it seems that there are some women deluded enough to try it themselves without proper male supervision. :)


    When our team are out caching, IF the female is in tow, she keeps the proper distance behind, and when we log a find, her contribution in making the picnic (provided it is of sufficient quality) is duly noted. :)


    Good Job MrsRTB doesn't know where you live. She can read a map, and used to Navigate back in our Motor Sport days, and we were succesful!!!!


    Mind you I wouldn't let her drive.....

  4. Pluses - you can carry arround hundreds of cache sheets, and cache when the mood takes you.


    First thing get Premium Membership. This will enable you to run Pocket Queries.


    I run one for my nearest 500 caches weekly. Then if I am going anywhere I run one for that area.


    Download to PDA


    I use GpxView to read them because its simple, and you can put in your current co-ordinates and caches in order of distance,
