  1. Huge Congrats on your Grand. Does that mean the drinks are on you in Snowdonia?
  2. WAHAYYYY!!!!!! Huge congatulations. I wonder what the chances are of holding an event for the 1000th in a pie shop?
  3. Well done on a significant milestone Here's to your next thousand!
  4. Time is getting closer so please confirm your intention sooner rather than later, people, if at all possible - thank you!!! Can't be 100% certain due to work commitments (pah, forget that, I'm coming too)
  5. 20,000? Oh ok, 500 really but if you count all the ones he's revisited showing others the way it probably is nearer the former. Well done Mark, and get some more hidden mate.
  6. Seeing as how this situation (sorry, can't think of a more appropriate word at the moment) has been on nearly every news bulletin for the past ten days, is receiving massive publicity in the press, has been emblazoned on T shirts at sporting events up and down the country, you must be in a very small minority. I don't know what we can do to further publicise the case but anything, just anything that may help in any small way has got to be a good thing. As a father myself I cannot imagine the horror her family are going through at the moment, here's hoping that Maddie is soon reunited with her family.
  7. I'm just amazed that nobody has fallen for the old one and asked if she is blonde? Oh dadgum, I just did...
  8. Can't see the attraction myself. Doh!
  9. Especially at your age... AND considering you're a woollyback like me!!!
  10. Not exactly the lowest prices around are they?
  11. 427? In a month? I'm warning you, you'll definitely be running out of caches at this rate . A big well done to you both.
  12. I wish! I'm already on 1200 dnfs, I just couldn't be bothered logging them all.
  13. I think I would have initiated the sound of one hand clapping. Take one flat hand, swing it around in as much of a circle, roughly parallel to the ground, as fast as you like and watch for the reaction when its conects with the lug-hole. Failing that, carry a large wooden spoon around in your caching bag, if anybody tries to expose himself in your vicinity again whap him on the peepee dead hard. I bet you as much as you like he won't go crying to the police about it. grrrrr
  14. I use a PDA with TomTom 6 and had a similer problem when first using the 'input destination as lat/long' which might be the same as the 'GO'. What I was doing was using the top line of numbers/symbols when entering the co-ordinate, for example N51(degree symbol)01'498 and it was the ' which caused all the problems. What I should of done was use the degree symbol from the top line and the decimal point from the bottom line, for example N51(degree symbol)01.498 . Therefore make sure your using a . rather than a ' Hope this helps, if I can get one I will try and post a screen shot to explain it better. Brilliant, that trick does it. I thought I'd tried that way ages ago and it didn't work then. there again, you know what thought did! Many thanks.

  16. I have a TomTom Go300, I usually download myPOUIs from GSAK with no problem. However when I try to type in co-ordinates directly to the TomTom it usually points me somewhere several miles away. Any ideas on what I am doing wrong?
  17. Huge CONGRATS on your 3000th find. You'd better slow down a bit or you'll be running out of caches .
  18. A big CONGRATS. Hope you don't get too drunk at the weekend. Hic!
  19. Clever enough yes but probably not got the time as they're all out caching
  20. A huge congrats to Lizzardman on reaching his 2000th cache today (err that's 2000 in total, not 2000 today) and I'm dead chuffed he did it at one of mine. Well done and here's to the next grand.
  21. PS. Erm - I find your tag line a bit worrying gingerbreadmen - dare I ask you to explain? err, in a word...NO! (Some things are best left unsaid )
  22. I've run Google Earth with no problems for some time on my desktop 'puter. I recently treated myself to a new laptop running Vista. I downloaded Google Earth and find the screen is slightly different to the version I already had - no problems there. However, I now have yellow push pin icons which when I hover the cursor over them show the name of the cache. Alternatively I get the geo icons (which I am used to) but they show the name of the cache all the time which makes the screen look very crowded. (I don't know why or how I change between the two screen settings, it just seems to happen!). When I hover the cusor over the cache icon the writing increases in size. What I want to do is get back to having my old geo icons with the cache name only appearing when the cursor is over the icon. How do I do that? I can't check any settings on the laptop Google Earth as it's poorly and gone to the 'puter doctors to make it all better again.
