  1. That's true, I guess we're open to all suggestions - the ones on the islands are certainly ones we'd eyed up already.


    I guess relatively simple caches that take you to interesting areas of he city that tourists might not otherwise go to. In addition, a couple of good puzzles for the 7 hour flight there would also be good!!!

  2. We're in Toronto for 3-4 days Mid September then heading down to Niagara Falls for a day - are there any must-do caches in the area - we won't have a car so anything downtown/easily accessible by public transport would be good!!


    Thanks in advance


  3. Since yesterday's update, the one that hides the "Lost and found" banner doesn't seem to work, that's the only one I've noticed so far.


    I didn't know there was a Greasemonkey script for that. The Adblock + filter still seems to be working OK though.


    It's part of the one that simplifies the page layout (also removes the facebook links and a lot of the whitespace). Can't remember where it's hosted though.

  4. I've updated geothumbs to work with the new site changes. Sorry for the delay in getting it working. The new version is 4.0 which you can download from here. Please let me know if you find any problems.




    Much appreciated - Geothumbs is the one greasemonkey script I miss most when it's not working!

  5. Ok - heard this on the radio earlier when playing at altitude during the World Cup was being discussed:


    What English League team plays home games at the highest altitude?

    I think I kmow, but mat be wrong, as I asked this question two weeks ago, (then I was right as I was the quizmaster).

    West Brom.


    DING to norsch The Hawthorns is the ground :laughing:

  6. I've recently been cycling from Glasgow Queend street to work along the canal as the city train connection is currently broken. Luckily there's a cache trail along it so I've been tryning to ration myself and am picking off one per day (well 2 today since it is Friday :laughing: )

  7. Recently the world's tallest building was renamed from Burj Dubai to Burj Khalifa in recognition of the fact that Dubai is skint and the sheikh's uncle Khalifa in neighboring Abu Dhabi has had to bail out the prodigal child.


    That's in the Eastern hemisphere.


    What is the name of the tallest building in the Western hemisphere?


    I'll go for Willis Tower, previously Seers Tower) in Chicago.

  8. It seems to me that what we have here is a clash of bureaucracies.


    The English Royal Parks bureaucracy insists that caches in their parks insists that caches in their parks must be Virtual caches. The GC.com bureaucracy demands that they must be physical caches instead.


    It seems to me that the ideal win-win solution would be for the GC.com bureaucracy to relent and to allow Virts to exist in English Royal Parks and elsewhere.


    As for petitioning an intransigent bureaucracy, don't be so silly. You might as well petition the GC.com bureaucracy, for all the good it would do.


    Of course, the alternative middle ground exists where virtual waypoints for multis are allowed by both!


    If you go to any cacher's profile page and click on the "Geocaches" tab you can see a listing of all caches found (on the left) or hidden (on the right), including archived caches.


    I do realise this (and did it on Kewfriend's caches myself to see if I'd found any other than the Iona one) - my point is you have to be a pretty dedicated cacher to find them, and you have to read this thread to realise they're probably still there. Relying on such dedication to get TBs picked up from caches that you yourself have chosen to archive (for whatever reason) isn't very acceptable.


    Enter the waypoint (GC number) into the g.com search engine. The cache page will magically appear for your perusal. Print it off or write down the co-ordinates and off you jolly well go. Upon your return, you can log it as usual, even though it's officially archived.



    Yes, but that's a catch 22 situation. Howam supposed to knwo that number if I've never found it and it's now off teh system? It relies heavily on cachers who have previously found the cache (1) reading this thread and (2) caring enough to go and revisit a cache that they've already found jsut to pick up a TB. Surely it's the owner's responsibility to clear up the geolitter and rescue any stranded bugs, rather than just assuming the caching community will do it for him?

  11. Chris has deleted the following two logs from the Peter Pan (London). IMHO the bad old days are on the way back. This really has to stop.


    You are not helping matters with your continuous disregard for both the wishes of the Royal Parks and our volunteer reviewers. This really has to stop.


    Although the description of cachers as "little children" would fit in with some of the comments made on this thread!
