  1. I've looked over the entries on caches I maintain and see dozens of duplicate "Found" entries by the same users. Some are identical, perhaps hitting a button on the Geocaching App twice (or even thrice!), some are similar but a day or so apart. It would be a TERRIFIC feature for the CO to be able to sort for "Duplicate Found Entries" by the same users in one cache's list to make removing each duplicate easier. My caches have over 3000 listings each. Thanks for considering! --Marc
  2. I was able to use RedShoesGirl access info to log in as her, and everything was working a-ok. I emailed her to ask if she made sure her browser had "cookies" turned on - the login requires cookies. I have also been working on revamping the Help Files and a couple of other issues that broke on the new server after a somewhat minor update. I am almost finished those fixes too. Thanks for letting me know via email about the problems - I don't follow all of the threads here as often as I'd like due to work, but once I know something is amiss I get to it as fast as possible. -- Marc March 14, 2014 @ 5:23 PM
  3. Am looking for: Johnnie Lacey 2005 Groundspeak Project (square metal) GD Mystery Coin --Marc
  4. Yes, as easy as pie, as they say. That's a big help and it's the complete solution - usually it's the obvious that's so hard to discover. Related issue: I have attempted to install the Garmin Communicator Plug In several times - It works in Firefox, and I have uploaded the caches to my Garmin. But I cannot get the plug-in to work with Safari. It shows in Safari's installed plug-ins list as being there, but the pop-up screen shows "Garmin Communicator Plugin NOT detected." I suspect I simply have to wait for an upgrade for use with Safari 4, but if anyone has a fix for this I'd be glad to know of it. Thanks for the details in the previous posts too, I appreciate the help, and I'm back "on track" now! --Marc August 18, 2009 @ 11:57 AM N40° 46.565' W073° 58.756' (my usual coordinates)
  5. Searched and searched the forums (just like I search for geocaches!), but need help with the following: I have a Garmin eTrex LegendC, and updated the software. Installed Garmin Communicator. In Firefox (on the Mac) the test screen shows it's properly installed. But I don't quite "get" how it's supposed to work. Can't see anything different in Firefox that gives me any clue at all as to what the install accomplished. Essentially, what I would like to do is upload the data from the geocaching.loc file(s) to the Garmin. I used to do this with GPSBabel or MacSimpleGPS, but times have changed. Can you recommend an app and a path of action that I can use to move the geocaching.loc file(s) to the Garmin and I'll give it a try. Remember, I'm on a Mac (that's not a pc...) Thanks! --Marc August 17, 2009 @ 9:06 PM N40° 46.565' W073° 58.756' (my usual coordinates)
  6. And now, so do I - and a second for my caching friend too! Thanks for the assist! --Marc August 24, 2008 @ 1:30 PM N40° 46.565' W073° 58.756'
  7. I would like to locate a "Discover Me" Name badge - who can direct me to a place to purchase this? This is trackable at Geocaching.com. Thanks! --Marc August 24, 2008 @ 1:13 PM N40° 46.565' W073° 58.756'
  8. I would very much like to purchase one of these Turtle coins (or trade for one - I'd even trade one of my "SilverMarc" geocoins for a turtle... Are you a turtle? --Marc August 11, 2007 @ 11:17 PM N40° 46.565' W073° 58.756'
  9. I have a Proto-Picnic Geocoin (2007 in black nickel) available for trade. Here's the link to my list: SilverMarc's Coin List. It's a souvenir for the Proto-Picnic Geocaching Event (Waypoint GC13FKG) which takes place on Saturday August 25th. If you're near enough to New York City - come in for the event and find some Central Park geocaches! --Marc August 11, 2007 @ 11:40 AM N40° 46.565' W073° 58.756'
  10. I have these coins to trade: UFOs South Pointing Chariot in Gold (it spins) Geocaching the Top 40s Generic Geocoin Castleman's Star Anyone interested in any of these, I've been looking for a set of Ranger 214 Train Coins, but will always consider other trades. View My Available Coins --Marc April 3, 2007 @ 4:01 PM N40° 46.565' W073° 58.756'
  11. Each week the Groundspeak Weekly Notification arrives by email, but because there is no "space" after each new cache's URL, the link connects with the mileage on the next line. Clicking the link fails unless I manually delete the last few characters which are usually something like "98.9mi" This is what the incorrect links look like in the email I receive: http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?guid=b17bc98b-b32b-48a2-87cc-f1a4deb40045 98.9mi If you could program in a simple "space" character after each URL I believe this wouldn't happen. Thanks, and happy caching! --Marc March 16, 2007 @ 11:44 AM N40° 46.565' W073° 58.756'
  12. You'll be tossing the jargon around like a pro in no time! --Marc September 8, 2006 @ 10:40 PM N40° 46.565' W073° 58.756'
  13. Today was a "Three Day!" The July GCC "Mosquito" Coin The beautiful Fung Shui Map coin (with it's own padded red pouch, just like a Fung Shui map is supposed to have!) and the Winter Caching coin (feels cooler around here already!) Thanks! Now, anybody looking for a "Generic" geocoin? I have two ready to trade! http://cointracking.com/public/SilverMarc Happy Trading! --Marc August 14, 2006 @ 9:24 PM N40° 46.565' W073° 58.756'
  14. I have available to trade: New Mexico 2006 (Route 66 on back) Prague Astronomical Clock Generic Geocoin Gold Generic Geocoin Black Secret Agent Mission Impossible Event 2006 Would consider anything appropriate in trade. They are listed in my trading list: http://cointracking.com/public/SilverMarc Happy Trading! --Marc August 2, 2006 @ 9:47 PM N40° 46.565' W073° 58.756'
  15. I shut off my Garmin Legend and stash it in my pocket regularly. Once when I grabbed it, there was an unusual screen showing - It had what seemed to be satellite info, frequencies, and other interesting info. Using the "page" button took me to additional screens that I've never seen before, and can't seem to access via the regular menus. Then, to make sure I wasn't dreaming, it again happened a few days later, and I tried more diligently to figure it out. The only way to leave these pages is to shut off the GPS. Anyone know how to access these pages on purpose? I don't have my docs handy - perhaps it's there, but I cannot get to the printed info if it exists. Thanks. --Marc July 6, 2006 @ 4:02 PM N40° 46.565' W073° 58.756'
  16. Please email me with the details and I'll look into it. Thanks! --Marc April 8, 2006 @ 11:22 PM N40° 46.565' W073° 58.756'
  17. Just a note that all the coins have been shipped to US and most overseas addresses! Enjoy, and Happy Trading! --Marc April 8, 2006 @ 10:26 PM N40° 46.565' W073° 58.756'
  18. Recent acquisitions: Dunclan Clan Route 66 Generic Geocoins (in multiple sizes!) Indy Diver Pins Thanks! --Marc April 8, 2006 @ 10:24 PM N40° 46.565' W073° 58.756'
  19. The contents of 3 big boxes of Manhattan Urban Cachers coin sets have begun making their way around the world via the USPS! Happy Trading! --Marc March 31, 2006 @ 7:10 AM N40° 46.565' W073° 58.756'
  20. The mint reports I will receive the shipment on March 31st. These are the photos from the approved sample run the mint provided. I haven't seen an actual coin yet either. --Marc March 20, 2006 @ 10:43 AM N40° 46.565' W073° 58.756'
  21. I have a Parents of Sam triangular coin to trade, and nothing in mind yet... Let me know something you've got that I don't have in my "Keeping" list. SilverMarc's Trading List Happy Trading! --Marc March 18, 2006 @ 7:25 PM N40° 46.565' W073° 58.756'
  22. One of those really good days... 250 Coin Image Placeholder Coins (yes, it's a visual pun!) showed up today, and I've already been to the post office twice to get them out to believers everywhere! Happy Trading! --Marc March 17, 2006 @ 11:28 PM N40° 46.565' W073° 58.756'
  23. For historical purposes... I just purchased 2 Decon Cannisters from RangerSurplus today for $3.49 each. A higher price then in 2002, but in a half hour of internet searching this was the only place that had any. If anyone knows other places, I'd still be interested in knowing about them. Cache on! --Marc March 16, 2006 @ 6:29 PM N40° 46.565' W073° 58.756'
  24. The mint will be emailing photos of the sample coins from the re-done dies on March 11th (there were some errors between the artwork and the samples which are being corrected.) I expect the new samples to be perfect, I expect to okay the production run, and I expect to receive the coins as soon as the mint finishes them and ships them to me. Then I will ship them out to everyone the next day! I'm looking forward to them also, and it's been longer then I wanted but the mint (CoinsAndPins.com) has worked with me every step of the way to get these just the way I want them. I'm the stickler here, for the record, but I don't want anyone to be unhappy with the coins they'll receive. Happy Trading! --Marc March 9, 2006 @ 4:19 PM N40° 46.565' W073° 58.756'
  25. I came back today to find a mailbox with: Parents of Sam (I have an extra for trade too) Finland CKayaks Selective Availability Image Placeholder Samples My Coins for Trading --Marc March 5, 2006 @ 10:36 PM N40° 46.565' W073° 58.756'
