  1. Even if you check just before you leave, anything can happen. The cache owner could be sitting down at his computer to make the changes, as you're starting your car up to head to the cache... I know.. didn't want to make it any longer.. but.. if you're lucky, the owner will still be at the cache coords doing some changes!
  2. One night I've printed a description with a date&time-stamp. The next day I started hunting. But, it turned out that the description was changed this very morning and the cache has got a new place. Stamp or not.. if you don't check just before you leave, anything can happen!
  3. It exists already! It was created by Lil Devil. Find it here!
  4. Well, yes - but I was talking about being able to update the stats I post on my profile using CacheStats. I can update them when ever I want. You don't need the exacte "MyFinds" PQ for CacheStats to work. You just have to export your own finds and logs from GSAK and dump 'em in a .GPX and Bingo! Be sure to remove anything added by GSAK or it won't work. And also, make sure Your own logs are always included. I thought we talked about this.. there!
  5. Already 3 finds! Nice! And 2 gave a shot at trying out in French! That's great! Good job. Glad to be part of it!
  6. Thanks for sharing and thank you very much for the acknowledgment, it's much appreciated!
  7. I too now understand Kgs better than lbs (except for my own weight!).. but my reference for this question is in pounds.. But, did you know that by typing "2000 Kg to lbs" in Google will get you: "2 000 kilograms = 4 409.24524 pounds" And vice versa "2000 lbs to Kg" will get you: "2 000 pounds = 907.18474 kilograms" Point of ref: 1Kg ≈2.20lbs 1lbs ≈0.45Kg or 454g Either way.. I'll give it to you.. because, I heard it was between 3000 and 4000 pounds, but, after you guys started asking questions (orbit, fuel,..) I saw that different "models" of GPS sat weighed different. Basically there are too many right answers.. CZ, your turn!
  8. Hmmm.. you are confusing me with all your questions.. am I not the one who's asking the question here? Seriously, I understand.. So, here's the new, more precise question: How much does a BLOCK IIR GPS satellite weight in orbit (in pounds, rounded to the thousands of pounds)? If it still too confusing, I'll change the question completly. Sorry..
  9. Ok, first let's clarify... do you want it's weight on Earth, or it's weight once in orbit? TOMTEC Yeah.. right.. uh.. on earth
  10. Close enough? Yay! Alright.. how much does a GPS satellite weight (in pounds, rounded to the thousands)?
  11. I did not know Tony personally. I've learn to know him and his humor through this forum and especially the Canadian Geopub Quiz. Being a trekker myself, I also found his alias amusing. Adding the "eh" showed how much humor he had! My thoughts are with his family and the people he loved. And wish a prompt recovery to his wife, Sue. Requiescat In Pace
  12. A couple of dozen out of 34 thousand could hardly be called "strong support." More like a vocal minority I'm sure the dev guys have this on their list, but anyone who's been around here for any length of time knows that the development schedule is typically measured in months or years. Patience, grasshopper But, it would be interesting to see how many of these 34000+ account holders are Premium Member and using PQs!
  13. Well.. no answer from Jeremy. Guess it will stay like this.. unless, they are working on giving us the choice by clicking on the column header!
  14. Here's the one I use: http://www.world66.com/myworld66/visitedCanadianStates
  15. I agree. Let's start the guessing game! N78 13.000 W96 37.000 I heard it was in Canada so I went into MapSource and chose an island up there and pretty much centered with Canada and the US and rounded the coords. But, then again, I could have thrown a dart on a paper map and got better coords!
  16. Hi, here is the full translation of you bug's page. This is a good idea for your TBs! How old is your son, now?
  17. Yep, Cyan (often called Turquoise or Teal) produces a Bluish-Green (or Greenish-Blue) light with a wavelength of 500-520 nm. At very low intensities, the eye is more sensitive to this colour light than red. Because of this high sensitivity, it is easy to use too intense of a light for a given application. Up until recently (newer, efficient LED's), Cyan was a difficult colour to produce, so Green was often used in it's place. Game on! TOMTEC Read all about it here.
  18. Found it on a great website that says it all about the eye and how it sees the colors.. Will post it after the answer has been found. I have to admit, I did not know that!
  19. Red? It is red. Any amateur astronomer knows that!
  20. If it is not too long, just post your stuff here and someone or I will translaste. If too long, you can PM me.
  21. I thought this was the main command center And this, the great wiring closet, where everything interconnects!
