  1. I am now reborn and a compleatly diffrent person. OK I am atually 2 pepole then hmm
  2. Looks like to frog is in a bad mood.
  3. While were at it can we ditch the "geocaching in the news" and mega event sections over here as I and I am sure most pepole over here arn't awfully intrested in whets in the Americain press or events in the states or if were lucky on the continent, I know we have a mega event and I would have thought that everyone intrested would know about that as it covers the whole of the UK.
  4. No probs for me -I've just finnished tdying up a cache page for submission.
  5. Saw that offer, unfortunatly I ditched my old tent for a new one last year - unless they want my new one back that was bought in their sale. Good idea though.
  6. This could be very usefull and this is something I have had trouble with before, when you can't remember the exact name of the cache you are looking for. This would also be usefull when searching fo a perticular series for example, the "Sidetracked" series here in the UK, which is a series of caches placed near railway stations and a great starting point if you use the train to get to work or a cahcing trip. To conclude I have thought it a bit odd the GS don't include this a search option considering how usefull it may be.
  7. Have a look at this other currently running thread, it's the same for the Oregon: Link
  8. I have been using IE 8 for a while now and have Garmin plugin installed, not that I use it much and have no issues I can think off
  9. I have seen these but are all the Lackeys on there?
  10. As you might of guessed..... I am curious as to how many people work at Groundspeak and how many work on the geocaching side of things? If appropriate it would also be interesting to know (even without names) what they all do apart from listening to our complaints ? While we are at it how many of those excellent volunteers are there? Appoligies if I am being far too nosey, I am just courious.
  11. The fourms are still behaving themselves over here, and I havnt had any pobst todat and yesterdat (BST) at all which makes a very plesent change. Thanks again.
  12. I know all the reviewer do a good job and I have had some of my 11 caches pubished by all of them apart from "the Bee Keeper" but I do hope I don't lose " Graculus" has he has been very helpfull. Having said that if they do re-deived the UK then I am sure that who ever we get at this end of the country will do an exelent job. But I think "The Bee Keeper" is just reviewing around London at the moment? I suppose if I am right this may change and he/ she may find themselves reviewing other areas as well.
  13. I have never understood why someone in the mists of time decided to create such a silly backword system unless it was ment to confuse. In other words - I agree.
  14. It's been impossible for me to get on to the fourm today, but as soon as you applied the fix it's been a breeze.
  15. I guess the server felt guilty and put it back.
  16. While we are mentioning the fourms today can someone please tell the server to put our flag back.
  17. Carry twezers for nano logs. Use a pointy stick for proding in thick undergrowth or dark holes. And I carry some of this as you never know what gunk you will find in some of those holes.
  18. World Nettle Eating Championship CRAZY!!!!!!!! I do belive that there are other mad pepole in the EU and it's not just us Brits.

    I am pretty sure that redistribution of PQs or other premium member data is disallowed. So are saying that if I have a friend that isn't a Premium Member and we go caching together and I have a "Member Only" cache in my GPSr he/she has to set in the car and wait on me? Or I can't give them the coordinates so they can help such? I've read that this has happened and the non-prem member has been able to log a Mem Only cache by copy/paste/send link to log page. there used to be a back door for this as I understand - not sure if there still is? I suspect that most cache owners would open the listing up temporeroly so that a non premium member can log it. I don't think that there is anything in the guidlines that say non premium members can't log those caches if they have signed the log book..
  20. It will still show up in a cachers list of found caches if they have found it. If you don't know anyone who has found it then looking at the find history for local cachers might be a good idea as most of them who were caching whilst it was active would have logged it.

    I am pretty sure that redistribution of PQs or other premium member data is disallowed. But if you are with the premium member at the time. What about familys that have seperate accounts for their kids and only use 1 premium account as they only need 1 set of PQ's?
