  1. Round my way the squirrels are tough brutes and evict small, loose containers in trees. The one I weighted with a lump of concrete lasted longer.
  2. Russia is the biggest country in Europe. According to the latest missive from Geocaching it has been transposed into Asia. Do Americans think Seattle is in Asia, too?
  3. Mine came up in the midddle of last week.
  4. Could this "THE LEADERBOARD WILL RESET TO ZERO ON MONDAY, JANUARY 4, 2021 AT NOON UTC. THE LEADERBOARD IS SUPPORTING THE MEMORY LANE SOUVENIR CHALLENGE AND WILL NOT REFRESH UNTIL IT ENDS." below the ime remainingg clock explain? Or am I misunderstanding?
  5. Does " Before retrieving a trackable from a cache, be sure to confirm that you can help with its mission/destination. This information is available on the trackable page " mean that geocachers not using a cellphone with data access to the trackables' pages are forbidden from retrieving trackable items?
  6. I've just noticed this problem after running a PQ to check the caches I visited at the weekend and in particular the 4 we dropped TBs in. So adding another request for the missing information to be restored. How are we to report missing TBs to owners if we don't know there's supposed to be any in the cache?
  7. For the symbols you need the code tables in https://www.geocachingtoolbox.com/ There's a lot more useful stuff there, too.
  8. I'm just adding my 2 penn'orth to your complaint about the most recent changes.
  9. You won't stand a chance of posting a log on the website. Even fully sighted people will struggle with the ultra-small font size now offered. Ever since graphic UI came in about 20 years ago developers have always had monitors much larger than most users and never think what looks good on a 32" desktop screen is useless on a 10" notepad or tablet.
  10. There is a new, independent series in the Republic of Ireland. As there are now between 40 and 60 CM added every week to the UK series it is quite a task to keep up-to-date and Andy33's bookmarks are inevitably updated in arrears - usually on Fridays. One cacher is helpfully keeping a GSAK database based on them which he republishes as a single PQ. Sorry, I can't give you a link as I keep my own GSAK database. If you join the Church Micro group on facebook it will be mentioned there fairly regularly.
  11. Used as I described doesn't violate the terms of use. It merely interprets PQs, which I have paid for, and navigates with off-line maps. It can't access the GC site as there is no SIM in the phone.
  12. Radar is an add-on to c:geo. The webpage has a link to GPS Status, I think, which gives this functionality.
  13. I prefer c:geo to the other apps I've tried. I use it on an old phone with no SIM so that extends the battery life. What really soaks up battery, and data, is using on-line Google Maps which is the default. Switching to Open Street Maps extends the battery life considerably. You can also buy 3 or more spare batteries for about £100 - cheaper than a GPS and good to have, anyway, in case of emergency.
  14. Happened to me, too. First and fifth ran. I waited a while unchecked them and rechecked and they worked. It's an improvement on last year when the PQ ran but the results disappeared.
  15. Be a little careful with batch downloading into c:geo, I think (although I could be wrong) that kind of thing is against the site's terms of use. Pocket queries are the primary benefit of premium membership. There are others but unless you're the kind of person who is going to rush out the moment you get a new "cache published" email they aren't going to be of as much use as pocket queries. If you want to try it why not get a 3-month membership and see if you miss it when it's gone? You can load PQ into c:geo and it works offline with static maps just like any paperless GPSr so used this way doesn't break any rules.
  16. If you've dropped the TBs then they are in the cache and not in your possession unless you've done it the old way by dropping then re-retrieving. You'll see on old logs "dipping" as visiting is a fairly recent feature. What does your inventory say you have?
  17. I've reposted this with additional information to the bug reports for website.
  18. When you add a personal note to a page that has changed since loaded [or the browser] cache has expired it is rejected and an error message suggest trying again after refreshing the page. This is good. When you try to use the corrected coordinates feature in the same circumstances the Accept button refuses to work and no reason is given. This is puzzling and bad.

  20. It's a bug:http://forums.Groundspeak.com/GC/index.php?showtopic=285017 Thank you. I see the same problem exists at the South Pole so I'll leave all those Antarctic multis and puzzles off my PQs.
  21. In the UK most of the references will be to W 000 nn.nnn but the pencil changes them to Eastings. Is it me, or is it a bug?
  22. If you look at the stats for a couple of members of the Worthing Committee you'll see one had a best day with 202 caches and the other managed a magnificent 708.
