  1. Its not just you. I logged a visit for a cache today which is in my stats but isn't appearing with a tick in the nearest cache list.
  2. The results for August are now online, see http://www.aebrookes.co.uk/cotm/index.php. Some very high scores this month, see people have been busy. Well done to everyone who has taken part.
  3. Just a quick reminder that today is the final day to get your entry in for August. Results will be published tomorrow.
  4. Hi all, Just a quick note to remind people that the Cacher of the Month website is now accepting results for the month of August. The latest date for submitting your stats is the 15th of September. If you haven't taken part before you can now register on the website. If anyone has any problems please let me know. Apologies for any delays last month in responding to queries as I was away Regards, Adam
  5. The US equivient of the PMR446 service we have in the UK is called FRS or Family Radio Service. FRS works on different frequencies are not compatible with PMR446 and are illegal to use in the UK. Its very similar to the UK allocation though so you can use it to get an idea of what range you can achieve. In the US there is also the GMRS (General Mobile Radio Service), which allows for higher powers and therefore higher range but this does require a licence.
  6. This is the code you need: <img src="http://img.geocaching.com/cache/96a4f240-e804-483d-aba9-f7eca698b193.jpg" alt="Nesting Osprey">
  7. Right, there are a few more days to get results in now for July, final day is the 15th. I'm going away now and am going to be without internet access for a while I should be able to publish the results as normal on the 16th but I won't be able to deal with any queries between now and then or manually add results into the database. Any issues will be sorted once I am back with internet access. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
  8. Excessive speed, despite the focus on speed limit enforcement, is a contributory factor in only 7.3% of accidents. Being careless and inattentive accounts for 35%. Not saying there is nothing wrong with breaking the speed limit, it is the law, but maybe it is concentrated on too much. Drivers need to realise, as you say, it is a limit, not a target. Perhaps this lack of understanding is the reason behind the recent announcement of a review into speed limits on rural roads. I can think of a lot of rural roads with sections that you could drive safely at 60mph but also sections where 60mph would be completely inappropriate, you do however get drivers that do not recognise this.
  9. 5 days left to get entries in for July.
  10. But his location does say "Midlands England" so perhaps he is from the US, living overseas as in here in the UK. Looking at his finds and other hides does seem to go along with this theory.
  11. I'll hopefully be coming up soon. Didn't really intend to come to the festival but it seems that'll be how it works out. Any caches I really shouldn't miss? Anything I should consider? I presume the city will be very busy.
  12. Hi all, Just a quick note to remind people that the Cacher of the Month website is now accepting results for the month of July. The latest date for submitting your stats is the 15th of August. If you haven't taken part before you can now register on the website. If anyone has any problems please let me know. I shall be away once again this month so may not be able to respond to queries straight away but I should be able to publish the results. Any problems or entries that I'm not able to add in due to my lack of internet access will be corrected as soon as I can. Regards, Adam
  13. Have you installed the Greasemonkey extension?
  14. You need to use HTML for the links, e.g. <a href="http://www.google.com">This is a link to google</a>
  15. Nice ladies at the ETO Show?! How does that work?
  16. Anything else you wish to get off your chest?
  17. Ooh! The new Green jeeps are released tomorrow! Looks like there are 6000 this year. They on this profile. Hopefully a few will reach us soon. I'm yet to log a white or a yellow one yet though!
  18. I'll be heading up North (well, further North) in a few weeks and am looking forward to the cache hot spot that is the Newcastle area. My plan was to get a day ticket on the Metro and travel by that getting as many as I can. I suspect I might have to visit a couple of times. I'll have to see how many of the Metro series I can get. As previously noted, micros in an urban environment sometimes are a bit difficult due to muggles. If anyone has any advice about what caches I should do in the Newcastle area, I would appreciate a quick email. Don't want to hijack this thread, might start a new thread closer to the time. Edited to say, I think I'll qualify as a "geotourist".
  19. I think it requires the owner to log a maintenance visit.
  20. I thought the RSPB owned the land, I can't tell the extent of their reserve there from the map. I also think that their reasons for removing the cache are irelevant, if the cache was placed on land owned by them without permission, why do they have to give a reason for removing it. I accept that the owner of the cache could have sought permission from the landowner but this has not been communicated fully within the organisation. It doesn't seem like this is the case though from reading the note by 'RSPB'. Even if it was however, it doesn't stop them revoking that permission if they have concerns as they mention in this case. Reading some of the logs, it doesn't sound to me that they're just using health and safety concerns as an excuse to remove it. It does sound like the terrain might be a bit difficult. Log by dysdera:
  21. Whilst it is a shame the cache has been removed, the land owner had every right to. I'm a bit surprised by some comments questioning their actions like: I really don't think these kind of comments are fair and are unhelpful. I do of course hope the cache can be restored but don't think we've been done any favours by this episode. There should have been negations with the RSPB before the cache was placed, not just because thats what your supposed to do, but also because I suspect you'd have a very unhappy RSPB if the cache placement effected their work in protecting birds. Placing caches is a privilege, not a right.
  22. You just need the characters before the dash I think.
  23. Go here when you are logged into GC.com and click 'Enter the Groundspeak Forums'.
  24. Hi. I'm looking at buying the Garmin 60csx and have been trying to decide whether I should try to get one with the UK basemap (which I think is called Atlantic). Does anyone have any screenshots showing the level of detail of the installed basemap? If the detail is poor then I guess I'd want to invest in some additional Garmin maps. If this is the case, I might decide to get one with a US basemap which seems cheaper so I can save a bit of money. Thanks. Adam
