  1. I'll check it out - probably a limitation on the size of data: urls...
  2. I'll place the order at the end of the day, so far it's just me and Learned Gerbil buying stuff.
  3. I'll play, I know an aussie cacher too who will no doubt play along!
  4. It seems to be the value in this Waymarking thing isn't in the "game" aspect, more the waypoint data itself. What would make it really worthwhile is if this data were available for re-use, but I guess that's unlikely to happen. If I had more time I'd have set up "open Waymarking" project already
  5. Just bumping the thread - should have enough items to make a reasonable raffle now but any more are still welcome. I'll be placing the "bulk order" for TB tags etc on Thursday, so if you want any bits and pieces for next-to-nothing postage, add your requirements to the thread...
  6. My caching hound is Deefer the Dog, we're in Hertfordshire - would love to play along!
  7. I normally have a few IRC channels open and I'm in there all day - conversations are sporadic so it's best to stay logged in as long as you can. It tends to liven up in the evenings though...try around 7pm
  8. Helicopter rescue for man trapped in gorse
  9. It looks like you're struggling to keep it erect
  10. Probably the only way would be to take a screenshot of the PDF viewer (e.g. with Alt + PrintScreen) , paste it into an image editor, then crop the image and save it as a JPEG
  11. Just a few weeks until the Bash in a Cache in London on Thursday 1st September.... Bulk buy TBs etc If anyone wants to bulk up an order for geocaching odds and ends (TB's, stickers etc) from here add a note here by Thursday 18th August and I'll make one single order and collect the cash at the event. Good way to save money on the postage costs for small items! I did this at the last bash back in February and a few people remarked they liked the idea, so I'll do it again Raffle? I was toying with the idea of a charity raffle for Children in Need, but haven't managed to rustle up any definite prizes yet (aside from possibly a Michigan Geocoin if it arrives, and I'll throw in a UK geocoin if I get one by then). I asked globalpositioningsystems.co.uk but they politely declined. If anyone would like to donate a geocaching-related prize or has suggestions I'm all ears! Looking forward to what should be a fun evening!
  12. Worldwide Assorted Ne'er-do-wells Knowingly Eradicating Recreational Stashes no, it's no use, the acryonyms just aren't coming to me today.
  13. Try http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Letterboxing "Letterboxers hide small, weatherproof boxes in publicly-accessible places (like parks) and post clues to finding the box online on one of several Web sites (see below). However, clues to finding some of the most highly-sought boxes are passed around by word of mouth. Individual letterboxes usually contain a logbook, an often hand-carved ink stamp and an ink pad. Finders make an imprint of the letterbox's stamp on their personal logbook, and leave an impression of their personal stamp on the letterbox's logbook — as proof of having found the box. Many letterboxers keep careful track of their "find count."
  14. Trashers Of Secret Stashes Eschewing Respectable Society? nope, I got nothing.
  15. I've found Greasemonkey 0.5 flaky under Firefox 1.06 for some of the extensions I've written, but haven't had a chance to investigate fully. Short version: Greasemonkey extensions I've written *might* work for you Longer version: GM 0.5 is a beta to encourage developers to look for issues, so expect the odd problem if you do install it. The new version is really aimed towards Firefox 1.1, they are encouraging extension authors to verify things work in the current "Deer Park" alpha releases of Firefox 1.1, since it takes advantage of improve security features in that release.
  16. You missed me off the Gorilla list, was I missed off the camping list too?
  17. Progress has been, erm, slow due to pressure of real work! I've built a prototype based around some nice existing software (Drupal) and I'm going to work with Gary on getting it live over the next few weeks.
  18. Very good, enjoyed the soundtrack and the "Vanilla Ice" interlude I've never seen a squad of tactical cows before, scary stuff!
  19. If you only use the geocaching Greasemonkey scripts written by myself and Southseakers, you should be fine with an earlier version, however, if you don't fully understand the nature of the security flaw, I'd strongly recommend that you either disable Greasemonkey or install the new (albeit crippled) version.
  20. My script adds links to OS and Google Maps/Google Earth - see screenshot at the start of this topic for an example. Before GreaseMonkey 0.35 it could also give you an accurate marker pointer on the OS maps at any scale. To replace the maps that are actually on the geocaching pages themselves, use the script written by Southseakers here.
  21. Greasemonkey 0.35 doesn't really fix the security problem, it is a hastily released "crippled" version released to give the the author some time to come up with a better solution. I've tweaked the script to cope with this, right click http://files.dixo.net/GeocachingMapLinker.user.js and choose "Install User Script..." to pick it up. While the original functionality for linking to OS and Google maps works, the OS map markers won't work until a future release of GreaseMonkey is made.
  22. Monkey-Repair-Man has been away all week and I will fix any problems with the scripts this weekend!
  23. There's no stopping that Mr Rutson when he gets going and he's just added some nice tweaks, each cache on the route is now marked, and you can "playback" the TB track in Google Earth to fly from cache to cache. It's a lovely upgrade, so if you liked the extension before, you'll love it now Upgrade by re-installing from the original link.
  24. I just fixed a bug in the script where it could miss points on TBs that had photographs logged, so if you've noticed too few points, re-install the script and try again! Many thanks to the eagle-eyed Rutson for alerting me to the problem.
  25. .....and it is done! - view the travels of your TBs across the globe with Google Earth! Lovely.
