    Thanks again to Groundspeak for doing what they can to ruin geocaching. This is immensely frustrating.
  2. If the Monterras sold as late as last year were still shipping with Android 4.0.1 on them, I wouldn't hold my breath for an update from Garmin. 4.4 came out in October '13, just a few months after the Monterra was announced.
  3. Seeing as almost every change Groundspeak applies to the site makes it worse, I am sad to hear this.
  4. <br />Groundspeak has made it clear that they pay it. See page 1. And oh, by the way, not doing so would be a crime.<br /><br />Your turn. What crime should we accuse you of perpetrating without a shred of evidence to support our claims? I say mopery. It's nice and vague.<br /><br /><br /><br />The problem is that they - unlike every other entity I and other Europeans do business with - refuse to divulge their VAT registration number. This has been covered extensively over the last bazillion pages, so I'll not rehash it any further here. I just note that three years on, paying customers are still being kept in the dark.
  5. One of the major complaints is that after all these years, it's still not clear that Groundspeak isn't just claiming to collect VAT while pocketing the change.
  6. Isn't it fast becoming very expensive to pay in dollars from the UK, what with the Pound tanking?
  7. Problem seems to have disappeared for now. Guess kicking the server must've helped.
  8. When trying to download Wherigo cartridges (any cartridge, version), the following server error displays: Error During Upload System.Web.Services.Protocols.SoapException: Server was unable to process request. ---> Unable to load DLL 'ZonesEngine.dll': The specified module could not be found. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x8007007E) at System.Web.Services.Protocols.SoapHttpClientProtocol.ReadResponse(SoapClientMessage message, WebResponse response, Stream responseStream, Boolean asyncCall) at System.Web.Services.Protocols.SoapHttpClientProtocol.Invoke(String methodName, Object[] parameters) at Wherigo.GSPCartridgeService.CartridgeService.GetCompiledCartridgeWithMetaData(GWZMetaData gwzMetaData, String CartridgeFileName, String CartridgeId, Int64 PlayerId, String PlayerName, DeviceType deviceType, String CompletionCode) at cartridge_download.btnDownload_Click(Object sender, EventArgs e)
  9. Now log notifications are sent as HTML-only, though ... >
  10. So, how are the plain text emails coming along?

  12. If implementing multipart/MIME email is a "substantial technical issue" to you, you have no place in software development.
  13. Same as it ever was. I started caching in 2006 and it only took me 3-4 months to become severely disenchanted with the way the company was run. Unfortunately Groundspeak is still a near-monopoly, so even though I list my caches on other platforms I am still relying on gc.com when I want to find some film canisters.

  15. Frankly, at this point I don't care whether Groundspeak staff provides feedback and engages in dialogue, since it is plainly apparent that you don't care one whit what your customers think.
  16. Yes, I'm also very happy with wesi's Frogtrd Polishr. It's useless for people without their own email setup, of course.
  17. I wouldn't discount the possibility completely, but it would be pretty daft given that most modern email clients block external images for exactly that reason.
  18. Looks interesting; now I'll just have to wait for some notifications ... wait, I can just log my own caches a couple of times. That should do the trick. Edit to add: works fine with cache Found, DNF and Write Note logs. Top job. Edit again: I'm not a Perl hacker (I value my sanity too much), but if this could be integrated I would be a happier camper: s/^Date: \(\d*\)\/\(\d*\)/Date: \2\/\1/ (It works in vim. Caveat emptor.)
  19. We. Don't. Want. HTML. Emails. And we certainly don't want to change our email client just because Groundspeak can't figure out that "Incremental Improvement" is better than "Change for Change's Sake". (The mailcap suggestions helps a little - thanks! - but we're still nowhere near how useful the notification emails were this Monday.)
  20. I love how this change is bad enough to provoke people who have never posted in here before to add their two cents.
  21. I received an TB owner notification yesterday evening. I can see from the Subject line that it's from before the rollback, but I believe the contents weren't reverted, so the following is still a valid point ... XMAS PUZZLE ORANGE (TB3XHQB) has a new log! Logged by: johnny lightning Log Type: Dropped Off Date: 7/24/2014 Location: Denmark Type: Advent IV Geocoin Log: Happy geocaching, Geocaching HQ Apart from the completely crappy formatting when viewing this HTML snap in Lynx, can you spot what's missing that used to be in these emails? Edit to add: it would also be nice if the date format followed the user preferences instead of forcing your unusable US date format on the world at large.
  22. Because plain text emails are the nightmare of Design Teams everywhere. They can't impose their precious corporate branding on plain text.
  23. Dear Groundspeak, will you please please please stop adding more HTML cruft to your emails? It. Just. Isn't. Necessary. At least you seem to have figured out how to do multipart/mime emails now for the Publish notifications, but the Owner Notification email I just got is HTML only. Can't read it and can't choose not to receive it - great!
  24. That prediction makes zero sense. Your own workflow, apparently, was based on using the email attachments. That means you didn't download before, and you're not going to do so in the future either (you claim). Myself, and every other cacher I know of, never used the attachments because most if not all our PQs are close to 1000 caches and thus were never included as attachments anyway. I can't remember how many years ago I last used an attachment. We are, if anything, going to download MORE PQs because the number we CAN download has been doubled. If there was any way to verify this, I'd take your bet in a heartbeat. Meanwhile, I'm still waiting for a fix to the real regression - the cancelling of plain text emails
