  1. I will probably be able to do some programming again in January. Maybe I'll try to get Geocaching Sweden running again then. Or maybe it's not necessary, if someone else has put up a nordic stats site by then.
  2. I'm not updating Geocaching Sweden for the moment, because I don't have the time to do it. I have been very busy for a while, and I have some programming work to do before I can run new updates. It is my intention to do this, but it is impossible for me to say when I will find the time to do it. The e-mail account I use only for Geocaching related mail is recieving so much spam that haven't even bothered to sort out the important mails and answer them. I am sorry for that too.
  3. Now you can practice geocaching at home, with the Geocaching simulator. The simulator is in Swedish, but all the Swedish you need to know is Karta=Map and Navigering=Navigation. Click on the picture and use the arrow keys to move. I have found cache 1-4, but not the last one. [This message was edited by Gustaf on July 20, 2003 at 05:20 AM.]
  4. Maybe I'll just go and smack Odie, to let out my frustration...
  5. It means that the confusing "new"-sign finally has been removed, and replaced with an equally confusing *, to indicate that the cache was found during the last 7 days.

    More statistics!

A lot of information, but presented in a rather dull way, in my opinion.
  7. Earlier today, CyberJunkie placed his 100th cache in Sweden! It's amazing how someone can place that many caches. I have a hard time maintaining my 13 caches And CyberJunkie has only archived 2 of his. He must have spent a fortune on lunch boxes. [This message was edited by Gustaf on June 21, 2003 at 03:02 PM.]
  8. Yes, it's happening to me too.
  9. I found about 50 caches before I bought a GPSr. It's not that hard if you are good with maps and maths. I only failed to find a couple of caches, and some of those I found were multicaches, where I had to calculate the distance and bearing between two sets of coordinates and then count my steps and use a compass to get there. I even placed a few caches without a GPSr. This was possible thanks to a detailed map with grid lines. I calculated the position of the cache from a few known points in the area, like road crossings, that were easy to find both on the map and in reality. Again, I was counting my steps to measure distance and used a compass to get bearings. I have now checked my coordinates with a GPSr, and they were all very accurate.

    quote:Originally posted by Divine:I'd like to see some kind of stats page where one can see things like: - caches per country (ok, we already have this) - cache®s per capita in different countries - cache®s per square area in different countries Have a look at this.
  11. Don't try to outsmart me Kobdalis. You know I'm the guru when it comes to statistics It's 8.37 percent on Wednesdays which is a statistically significant difference from the other weekdays, since there are as many as 9742 logs.
  12. I just read all the Swedish logs and noticed that more than 50% of the cache finds occured on saturdays and sundays. Wednesday is the least popular day for geocaching

  15. Det brukar vara billigare att köpa sin GPS från England än att köpa här i Sverige. Tyvärr räcker inte tusenlappen långt där heller, runt 1700 kronor får du betala för en eTrex basmodell, inklusive moms och frakt.
  16. I heard about Geocaching on radio (Vetenskapsradion) on september 1:st, 2001. The next day, I found one cache and placed another.
  17. Not much Geocaching activity going on in Norway lately: Statistics for Norway
  18. Länge skrev jag på bara på engelska i loggarna, men sen bytte jag till svenska. Jag vet inte riktigt varför, kanske mest för att det då var så många andra som skrev på svenska. Men om det är något problem med gömman, något som jag tycker att andra som kommer efter mig bör känna till, skriver jag alltid på engelska. Man får tänka på att alla inte känner sig så bekväma med engelska språket, framför allt då den äldre generationen.
  19. quote:Originally posted by Anders:Could it be that they are out looking for caches, maybe? Anders The Icelanders have been out looking for caches since October, when the last one was logged. They should be back anytime now.

    Old virgins

    One of my caches, Paradise Lost, was found for the first time yesterday, 13 months after I placed it. Are there even older "virgins" out there?
  21. Quoting from Encyklopedia Britannica: quote:Scandinavia: Generally held to consist of the two countries of the Scandinavian Peninsula, Norway and Sweden, with the addition of Denmark. Some authorities argue for the inclusion of Finland on geologic and economic grounds and of Iceland and the Faroe Islands on the grounds that their inhabitants speak North Germanic (or Scandinavian) languages related to those of Norway and Sweden. So it's pretty much just Norway and Sweden. And I'm not that sure about Norway either, so let us just call this forum "Sweden". OK, bad idea
  22. quote:Should read country/language instead of ****ry/...I wonder what went wrong... I know. You misspelled it and got censored. You cant write **** in these forums. Or ****, or ****, or... Those Americans...
  23. quote:Originally posted by jasy:That is a more appropriate title :-) Who will mail Jeremy? /jasy I suggested Scandinavia to Elias, so I guess I'm the one to blame. Have you noticed that it says Iceland too, on the main page? That's definitely not Scandinavia! However, Scandinavia is more well known to foreigners (Americans) than Nordic countries.
  24. Captain_Morgan&Family wrote on another thread: quote:IMHO is that it's unfair and unpolite against other geocachers to make cache descripitions only with your own language, i.e. for example in swedish or finnish only. I think it's unfair to write about my site in finnish. I'm getting curious
