  1. Only one of us is on the correct time continuum.
  2. Regarding Payne's Pain, I haven't tried it, but if you eliminate all of the numbers but the 0's and 1's, you can construct a binary set of numbers, probably in blocks of five. Use these blocks to determine the missing coordinate numbers.
  3. I've solved a few. Once you get beyond simple substitution ciphers, I recommend googling some ciphers to see if they fit. Usually, the cache page gives a clue as to how to proceed. I find google to be a wonderful assist.
  4. You can't publish a cache, silly, you have to hide it.
  5. That is such a kind post. Kudos to you! BTW, you misspelled 'perfect'. No, I meant Prefect, a sort of Roman enforcer in the bad old days. I am quoting Jeremy as he stated in a post that he is. And Joypa, think about how caches are approved. Let's see.....caches are approved.....through a listing service!
  6. New rule: Higher numbered members must worship lower numbered members.
  7. This is a listing service. I do not think Jeremy is making rules. He controls the listing service only. Where did the myth that someone is making rules come from?
  8. Wow! I'm # 230,621. Woopty freakin doo. If you square 23 and add my hat size, you get a really weird number.
  9. Puzzle caches are my favorite now. Plug and go caches are mostly routine now. (There are exceptions) I am thinking of making all of my future caches puzzles to make them interesting. To answer the OP's question, you can't make people do anything in this hobby they are not inclined to do. If I set out puzzle caches, I expect the number of visitors to go down and the quality of logs to go up. We all get to play our own way.
  10. You are forgetting the segment of the community that does not log.
  11. A FAIR ball is a batted ball that settles on fair ground between home and first base, or between home and third base, or that is on or over fair territory when bounding to the outfield past first or third base, or that touches first, second or third base, or that first falls on fair territory on or beyond first base or third base, or that, while on or over fair territory touches the person of an umpire or player, or that, while over fair territory, passes out of the playing field in flight. A fair fly shall be judged according to the relative position of the ball and the foul line, including the foul pole, and not as to whether the fielder is on fair or foul territory at the time he touches the ball. If a fly ball lands in the infield between home and first base, or home and third base, and then bounces to foul territory without touching a player or umpire and before passing first or third base, it is a foul ball; or if the ball settles on foul territory or is touched by a player on foul territory, it is a foul ball. If a fly ball lands on or beyond first or third base and then bounces to foul territory, it is a fair hit. Clubs, increasingly, are erecting tall foul poles at the fence line with a wire netting extending along the side of the pole on fair territory above the fence to enable the umpires more accurately to judge fair and foul balls. Exactly.
  12. Definitely a troll or a sock puppet.
  13. Everybody needs to relax. There is about as much chance of a new rule or guideline being developed as there is of the earth plunging into the sun. It is not going to happen. There seems to be some misguided conception that there is a body of people charged with making rules for geocaching. This is a listing service. But suppose there was some committee. Who is going to enforce the rules? There are no geocaching police, just listing agents. About all you have to make someone do something is peer pressure. That will have to be enough.
  14. There's no such thing as gravity, the earth sucks.
  15. Hmmm...Looking forward to the Thanksgiving fireworks.
  16. If you mean IP address then as I am typing several hundred other people are connected to the internet with the same IP address as I am using. A couple of them are even geocachers. This is fairly common way companies connect to the internet. Yeah, I mean IP address and I know a company will have many computers and one IP address. I believe the IP address was identified as that of a previous sock puppet and/or forum abuser(s) and that is why the account was terminated. I was thinking that, if they are both using a business computer, it could be two different people. Obviously, if this is the case, the guy was wrongly cut off----but, hey, I don't know the whole story and probably never will. Just curious.
  17. I'm confused. How do two different cachers have the same URL address? If this guy is innocent, that would need explaining.
  18. I wasn't begging you specifically. It was more of a general desire that needed fulfilling. I appreciate your efforts and accept your apology. How about this one as a first prototype? Jan Nice. I want one.
  19. We now wish to apologize for our previous apology.
  20. The management wishes to interupt this apology to say that we're terribly sorry for the interuption. We will now resume your regularly scheduled apology.
