  1. If you accidently close a window, enter CTRL/SHIFT/T to get it back.
  2. You could find another cache worth 9 points, log it as a note, and edit it to a find. That way your leaderboard score would be correct.
  3. Ranger Fox list his rules for Geocaching streaks in his profile: https://www.geocaching.com/p/?guid=dabb99dc-7bbc-44ab-b377-9f30b4f601cb
  4. When we were doing the NC Delorme, we decided to find a cache in every county just as a personal challenge. Since we were both born in NC, we wanted to say we'd been to all 100 NC counties. As soon as we heard about the NC County Challenge, we hurried and got the FTF.
  5. Agreed. It also means saving the 1.5/1.5 caches close to home until you really need them, knowing you run the risk of them being archived before you find them. I know a cacher that went out just after midnight of the day he was scheduled for minor surgery. The next day, he went out in the evening after he was released from the hospital, to find a cache.
  6. Jumped through a lot of hoops does not mean gaming the system. It means going caching in rain, sleet, snow, and electrical storms. It means caching in the dark of night because you had to work all day. It means caching when you are sick and don't feel like getting out of bed but you do to keep the streak alive.
  7. I know Night-Hawk and Ranger Fox personally. We've been caching with each of them. Their streaks are real. They've gone to a lot of work and jumped through a lot of hoops to maintain their streaks. -- Diana
  8. We had the same problem with the forums last weekend. Typed in david%26diana instead of david&diana.
  9. Our cat once changed our Geocaching language to Japanese by stepping on the keyboard.
  10. You would think Groundspeak would have fixed the "& in a name" bug after the problem with the pirate promotion. We're having the same problem with david&diana.
  11. If your name has an ampersand (&) in it, you get an error when you submit your answer. Geek & Sweet and Ma & Pa are having the same problem as david&diana.
  12. I get a "500 - Server Error" when I try to download pocket query results. This happens on queries that I ran today and it also happens on queries that I ran and successfully downloaded yesterday. I tried this with both IE11 and Chrome with the same results.
  13. I have been having the same issue with GSAK updates and my issues started after Tuesday's update.
  14. There are 2 in NC by OzGuff, GC12ZC0 Zip Code GC17XZK Zeb, Zeb, He's Our Man!
  15. The US Topo maps are not locked. You should not have any problems using it with a new GPSr.
  16. As near as I can tell, those 8 states require 442.2Mb for CN7 and Topo.
  17. You'd have to actually install Mapsource on the other computer. You can save your unlock codes to a flash drive and then use them on the other computer. Note that I think this may technically violate the software license if you don't own both computers. You can fit a lot of the eastern US on a 1Gb memory card. Using both CN7 and Topo, you could fit FL, MS, AL, GA, SC, TN, NC, KY, WV, VA, MD, DE, IL, IN, OH, PA and NJ. That would take 964.8 Mb. If you have a specific list of states in mind, post the list and I can tell you how much space it would take.
  18. It's not quite the same set of maps that you list, but I have City Select, Topo 24K, Roads & Recreation, and Topo maps loaded into our 76C and they're displayed with that hierarchy. City Select first, Topo 24K if City Select is hidden, Roads & Recreation if the first two are hidden, and Topo if everything else is hidden. I think you can determine the hierarchy by the order that the maps are listed on the GPSr menu where you can hide or show them.
  19. Pennsylvania is divided into only 4 segments in CN 7. The Southeastern quarter takes 25.7Mb. New Jersey is divided into only 2 segments. The Southern half takes 13.6Mb.
