  1. When geocaching gets regulated out of existance. And Groundspeak is spending all their money on legal battles it will be time. Time to move the site overseas. Out source it to India etc. My computer cares not where the geocaching servers are. Without legal woes to worry about we will be able to list caches anywhere with no recourse from the land managers. Problem solved. I wonder if Jeremy and the gang like curry?
  2. Geode looks great. And by the time on the pictures looks like there have been some late nights working on it. I think most people will want to know when and how much will it cost.
  3. After several tries to go paperless on the Iphone I finally stumbled onto a solution. Starting in GSAK I go to File then print print format = condensed html press button for preview from that page I go File- send- page by email. open email in I phone and there ya go. Pictures and all.
  4. You can set up instant notifications for all finds in a certain distance from a set point. Just go to premium features if you are a premium member.
  5. Clever caches do not promote damage to private property. It is cachers with heavy hands and no brain power that do the damage. Just because you can't find it doesn't mean you need to take out a screwdriver and start disassembling things.
  6. Ah the master plan is working. First keep out the pesky out of towners then we work on denying the noobs from getting permission to hide...... Then...................
  7. GC104CD there is a train Ol #104 that the cache refers to.
  8. I have a cache on superstition and it has a 13 in the gc# and on a poo cache it has BM in the cache name.
  9. An archived/disabled cache can still be viewed. No need to change things when one goes down. Very very slim chance that one would be made to a PMOC or they change cache size or name. These would be the only ways I can se this could run amuk
  10. Pitch them in the trash and start over.
  11. With PQs its real easy to not know you didn't want to hunt a cache until you get to the location Yes but with this OP he even has a puzzle cache made to make people read the cache page as he states he dislikes people not reading cache pages. So I believe the OP had read the cache page. Knew what the cache was going to be. Already disliked the CO's caches from previous experience. Was going to ignore this cache. But for some reason decided to go ahead against his own better judgement and was disappointed. Wow what a surprise. Then comes to the forums and bad mouths the cache owner. Wants to have the cache archived etc. All for not being able to sign a silly name on a piece of paper. How ridiculous does this really sound?
  12. $15.50 for a bobber with a blinkie glued in it? Wow..... Could have bought 4 ammo cans.
  13. If you have an I-pod use cacheMagnet (free) and download them to your ipod. I tried it on my kids and it worked great. I just need glasses to see the fine print.
  14. On my last trip I used the google map off the cache page and just scrolled down the road I was taking looking at all the caches near the road. Read each cache page deciding if it looked good. Didn't have time for long hikes so ruled them out. Bookmarked each cache I wanted then pq'ed the bookmarks. Did a PQ in the towns that we stayed overnight in just in case we had some time in the evening to get a few more. Did that all along the coast of Oregon down to LA.
  15. Make something idiot proof they will come up with a better idiot......
  16. In GSAK Go to FILE-export-mapsend.wpt save that to desk top or wherever. In topo goto File-open and the file you just created on the desktop. After rereading I see you didn't mention GSAK So see if you program will make a .wpt file.
  17. If the goal is to make it hard to find then is it not just as good a feeling to be told "I had to use a PAF" Or "I had a nudge from cacher X" when they log your cache? They are admitting your nano in the woods was hard to find. I don't care how someone finds my caches, just that they eventually do find them. After hiking out to my cache on a bluff overlooking the ocean and they take in all the scenery, got some exercise, should I really get worked up if they couldn't locate the cache and called for help? People call for help when they are stumped. Not before heading out the door to go caching. Is this different than posting spoilers on the cache page? Yes. Posting a spoiler in you online log I would call poor etiquette, encrypted or not.
  18. Make sure it will work with your computer. My Palm Lifedrive will not work with Windows Vista. And it looks like Palm will not be updating the drivers for it. Worked well with XP
  19. Wow suprised no one had a comment on taking tools to dismantle a lamp post to get a cache inside.
  20. plastic writing board and a grease pencil
  21. I agree with sStarBrand but would go further and say not semi lame but lame.
  22. I solved the only puzzle in the county that was not mine and went and got it. Real simple when there are none for 45 miles.
  23. Just bought two new batteries off ebay for $2.95 apiece for my Ex 600. Item title: MOTOROLA SNN5595B EXT BATTERY T720 731 810 C331 Had bought one Motorola for the T720 and one that was a no name for the T720 and the no name was too thick to work. The Motorola is an exact replacement. So I ordered 2 more Motorola's
  24. Check the battery with a volt meter. It may be bad. I had one go bad on my 600.
  25. My laptop died and the new computer has Windows Vista. Palm offers no support for the Lifedrive on Vista. Try as I may with the drive mode I could not get cachemate to see any of the files. So I started exporting out of GSAK onto an Sd card in HTML format. Plugging that into the PDA and using the browser to view. Other than not being able to write notes directly, I use the note pad function, it functions as well as cachemate. With better graphics and easier searching.
