  1. Since the "Send Email" link is also a GC.com form, they already have the ability to store and read those email messages as well...
  2. Have a look at switchbacks.com It's got pretty good coverage for BC, so may get you what you need... If a trail is not there, you could always record the track yourself and submit it. -TWT
  3. I like it so far. (but could definitely use a little tightening up appearance-wise) I may have missed it, but will there be an option for a multi-user conversation instead of only one-to-one? -TWT
  4. That link is no longer in use. The WSGA website is at http://www.wsgaonline.org -TWT
  5. I deleted the old date from the Event Calendar on this board. The new one should appear this weekend when I do the update..
  6. Just found the macro, great idea... hydnsek, I created a fresh database with the same name as yours and downloaded the bookmark list into it, and it did stick with the "x-CacheMachine" database and populate the usersort column properly. It looks like a couple caches are missing from the bookmark list as the macro bombed out on caches #5 and #77, but once I removed them from the data file it completed just fine.. I can' see any reason why it wouldn't work... Is it possible you have a space at the beginning or end of the database name?? You could try changing the line that says < Database Name=$cbxDataBase > to < Database Name="x-CacheMachine" > (without the <>'s) Too bad I can't make this CM.... I'll have to remember this macro next time... -TWT
  7. If the whole page is being redesigned, why did they have to change the actions of the old page? They (GS) should have been expecting this discussion, as the same occurred when the first introduced the Recently View List - at least then they listened and gave us the option to not view it. Yep, what if the "recently view caches" is being totally revamped and they had to remove the checkbox from the database for the conversion to go easier. (I'm not a DBA, so I have no clue) They had the choice, show them to everyone or remove them for everyone.. I'm guessing the number of people who hid them is MUCH smaller than those who had it displayed... Hey, most cachers probably don't care one way or another. I don't if they are listed or not. I don't care about the list of caches I've logged in the last 30 day either, so putting one before the other is irrelevant to me. Consider me the "average" cacher, and their decision was a no-brainer... I also don't care about the profile picture, mine or yours.. One thing I would like to see is the ability for me to organize the frames anyway I choose... Then I could put the one or two things I actually use at the top and ignore the rest...
  8. Yep.. Something needs to be done... I just received a notification, but nowhere does it say what it is! I "guessed" it was an Archive Log, but until I clicked on the Cache Link, I couldn't be sure... The HTML doesn't really bother me (but plain text would be better), but please at least include enough information to actually know what the log is! There is really no reason to receive this notification if doesn't tell me anything... -TWT
  9. I can see a lot of upset people who can't get that seventh because there are no Virtual, WebCam, Letterbox or Wherigo near them... The event requirement could also be tough for many... I will probably get three just due to normal caching, but will not go out of my way to get all 6 required...
  10. Check it again tomorrow. Lab caches are slated to start counting towards all of your stats starting June 3rd 2014. So it's now June 4th. What's the holdup? Still June 3rd in the Frog's TimeZone...
  11. I get that, but it means the site supports a container and the cache description can encompass these things that are available to see while you're there. Again, working within the system... Those who are in it for the "WOW", will grab the cache 10 meters from the parking and then go the extra 200 meters to see the "WOW".. Those only interested in the numbers will grab the cache and get back in their car, thus saving the environment for those who actually care...
  12. Maybe, just maybe the reviewer of my cache is unaware of this rule? All I know is I just spent three hours building a puzzle checker and uploading it to my webserver. The Message from the first post implies that it is a "string" (maybe password) that is being checked and not just coordinates being verified. If that's the case, that may be the issue. Requiring someone to use an external website to retrieve the correct coordinates it very different than validating that I deduced the correct coords from the puzzle...
  13. Thanks to all the people that attended the Snohomish workshop tonight...
  14. I recently added all Mega events (even outside the northwest) to the Calendar.... Since they don't change as much, I'll probably only update them every month or two.... -TWT
  15. I'm not sure if this is temporary, or if the hamsters ate it and it's gone permanently, but the image (GC hosted) that has been on my cache page since it was published (few months) is now showing a broken link... The Cache is GC4N1B4 Not sure when it disappeared, but figured I ask before replacing it so there not an orphaned image out there if it comes back... Thanks. -TWT
  16. Which additional feature besides the "found" button are you talking about ? The "Found" and "Goto Next" (or whatever it's called) are really about it. While I haven't tested the 62 for character length, the 60 has a very limited amount of text you can add to the POIs, so dropping in full descriptions and logs was never available in a POI. Being able to drag large GPX/GPZ files instead of converting to POI's would be nice. The speed of a GPZ file would be great... Having all those POIs does slow the processor down a bit.. All that being said, It's not that big of a deal to me. I still use my iPhone/iTouch for all logging and cache details. If I don't have them with me, or it's a long hike and the battery won't make it, I just mark a new waypoint at the same spot as the cache and download them into GSAK to verify what I did find. I process all my PQs through GSAK before loading as POIs to get the important information in there. One button launches a series of macros and 15 minutes later I have 4 states/provinces with 20 POI files and one huge GPX file each for the iPhone. We still use both 60's and 62, so I probably won't change my POI process until the 60s die anyway.
  17. 62s with POIs support nearly unlimited geocaches already. What I want is a Garmin that doesn't constantly reboot. I've had pretty good luck with two 60cxs and a 62sc, not many reboots at all. I do keep all 30k in WA state in both units as POIs, but it would be nice to be able to use the geocaching features for all 30k instead of just 2k...
  18. Yeah I picked up at 62sc a couple months ago at the last sale. It was cheaper than the 62s at the time, but I don't think it was as low as $199... Argh.. These "fire sales" get me wondering if a new 64 is on the way soon... Maybe one that supports the GPZ files for nearly unlimited geocaches???
  19. An event so close to home, but I'll be working to far south to make it up at lunch time... Arg! Looks like it was just published a few days ago... I run the PQ to load the events on the weekends, so anything published during the week should make it up by Sunday as long as I'm not out of town... -TWT
  20. Hi, Not sure if this is the correct spot for this or not, but I would like to see the Bookmark API functionality enhanced so you can change the name and add comments when adding a cache to a bookmark list. Currently it only seems to support sending the cache code, so if you want to make any notes (Found Date, ect..) or change the name to include a Delorme page, you have to go back in and do it manually. Thanks. -TWT
  21. You might want to test and see what the most/biggest files the 450 processor can handle... I was able to put an 8gb card in my 60Csx, read the data just fine, but once the Maps and POI files got much over 1Gb, the processor started to really bog down, map redraws and searches took forever. -TWT
  22. Not knowing exactly where the northern extent of King County is, you could use Stargate P47122 TB Cache to Stargate P61149 TB Cache. Could also use SEATAC Plane Exchange once it's reenabled. Stargate P47122 is a dead end... Drop the TB there and it will never be seen again....
  23. If your GPSr supports storing those caches on flash cards (and has a flash card slot) you can prep a number of different cards before you go and then just swap them out as you need them... Last time I did a road trip from Washington to California, I created three different cards, one for each state. It had all the caches I wanted as well as location specific maps. ( I use a 60Csx and store all the caches as POIs, so I don't get very much info for each cache, but I can fit a lot of caches.) -TWT
  24. I'd like to see the ability to Hide the Souvenirs Tab, or individual tags, or group them, or ANYTHING that makes them actually usefully to look through.. Alphabetical has got to be the worst way to go... At least sort them by date so they show some sort of reasonable order... When the August ones first were announced, I thought, it might be nice to try a streak for the month, but didn't think I'd actually make it.. There are lots of caches nearby, but having to get something everyday just didn't seem like that much fun.... But, I went for it anyway and did make all 31 days, and will probably never bother to try for a streak again... For those who do like that sort of thing, good for you...It's just not for me... And why was the US the only country that got a stupid looking state "icons". All the other countries that have "State" Souvenirs got icons that resemble the actual souvenir, not just a silhouette of the state with the abbreviation in the middle... For all the Countries that don't yet have a souvenir, If it's just that they don't want to spend the money to pay someone to create them, create a contest, let the public create some, and let everyone vote on which one... Maybe even limit the voting to the residents of the country being represented.... There are alot of very talented Artist Cachers out there that could create some wonderful souvenirs... I already hide my "Statistics" page in favor of GSAK generated stats... I include my Souvenirs in those stats, so I would prefer to hide the official "Souvenirs" page as well. For all the August ones, I created my own (along with squishing the US State Souvenirs into smaller boxes, yeah they don't look great, but they look better than the blue boxes...) -TWT
  25. Relax, they'll probably invite everyone that's attending Geocoinfest, just like they did on the Block Party... I attended the Block Party and did a number of the Lab Caches, but I don't seem to have gotten an "invitation" to anything... Unless the ability to do the Block Party Lab Caches counts as an "Invitation".... -TWT
