  1. If you look in the csv.xsl script for the first line that reads:


    <xsl:value-of select="gpx:name"/>


    and replace it with:


    <xsl:value-of select="concat(gpx:name,' ',gpx:desc)"/>


    This will work, but a more flexible way is to use the fields in the export dialog box. My currently looks like:


    but I am sure it can be even more improved.




  2. I would like to order a couple - do you by any chance ship to Europe as well?




    I'm pretty sure there will be no problem with that. I'll have Dancingfool get back to you. I know there was someone from Germany also expressing interest in the coins.





    Yes, got a message from him.


    Thanks a lot



  3. Thank you for your quick reply.


    The next version of GSAK will make the generation of this (and any other type of CSV or TXT file) very easy, but that is of little comfort to you now.  :huh:


    Sounds good.


    There are two ways to get around this now:


    1. Write a macro to iterate through the file and output using the PutFile macro



    Not sure what file you mean. Also I couldn't find a PutFile macro in the gsak directory or on your webpage.


    2. File=>Print. Select the Grid columns format, and enter your special tags in the "custom column" set up. Use the method as described in item 13 of the FAQ to generated an Excel file, then delete all the columns but the "custom one", now "save as.." from Excel as a text file.


    Unless I am overlooking something this only gives me a single file with all the caches rather than individual files. Also I can't seem to get log entries into a view?




  4. Hi Clyde,


    so far GSAK has been able to cater for all my wishes, but now I am running into a dead end. I would like to create text files to view on my mp3 player, one for every cache, named as:


    %typ1%con1%drop2%notGC%code %name.txt


    That would be similar to the html export, but just as plain text and without the indexes. Any idea on how this could be achieved?




  5. I'm sorry that closing an apparent security hole means an inconvenience for you. *shrugs*


    Appology accepted (I didn't realise it was you who did it).


    I am still curious how the fact that someone is able to download data for a non-approved cache constitutes a security risk for the geocaching.com server. I would feel flattered if someone went through the trouble to get the data in advance (not sure how he would know that such data would exist in the first place.). 'Security hole' seems to be a catch-all excuse these days to make life harder for the user.


    Maybe Jeremy could implement a check to see if it's the OWNER of the cache trying to download the GPX file - or someone else.


    I would appreciate that very much. It seems to work well for the actual cache page or is that another 'security hole' and we soon won't be able to see it either?


    Thanks for listening


  6. Yes, he has probably heard of tape recorders as well. The fact remains these are just crutches to work around something that was introduced with no apparent benefit and has destroyed an elegant way of doing things in the process. *shrug*


    I had just to recreate my cache notes (after approval) for three caches from little snippets and it *was* extra work and it was annoying. Good for you if it doesn't matter to you.



  7. now 2 and a half hours later still clicking on the gpx link goes to a blank page

    I have the same problem. Most annoying - now I have to keep my cache notes in a seperate file where they can get lost, rather in the GSAK database. *shrug*

  9. Have earthcaches been added in? I was going to add them in myself but if they are there it will save me a job.

    Earthcaches are now supported as well as "other" waypoints. I use them mainly for my (and other people's) houses, so they show up wit the standard "house" icon. The zip file has been updated with the script and the extra icons.





    P.S. Thanks for the kind words.
