  1. WASS + EGNOS = on GPS + GLONASS = on
  2. It's not? Their only solution is a deprecated plug-in architecture that is being discontinued by browser vendors, and they have no backup plan to deal with it on previously supported platforms? Then whose problem IS it? The users.
  3. Make all of your caches "Premium Member Only" caches, and that should reduce the fake log entries. One can log a PMO cache just as easy as a regular cache so making them PMO will have zero effect.
  4. You might try the Nortwest forum for this request. As I said last time Hembre Ridge is really a park and grab, but the drive there is very scenic. However if you never drove logging roads in the mountains it might be a bit of a white knuckle experience.
  5. Hembre Ridge is not much of a hike, it is essentially a park and grab.
  6. Regulars knew that they could prevent a waste of their time by just going on when they saw that comment. Newbies who didn't recognize the "troll attribute" reply were left to go back and forth with the troll, until/unless someone PMed them what "That's interesting" means. You'll note that "That's interesting" is not derogatory or even a put off if the OP was not really trolling. Just serves as a flag. That's interesting! Just kidding of course. But i will say that, although it wouldn't hurt anything to have a flag like this, i'm not sure it's really needed. I'd say that most who hang around here spot em fairly quickly. On top of that, many see the trolling going on and comment anyway. And others see trolls when there are none. fascinating
  7. I looked near the event and confirmed that an entire series of temporary caches were published on August 29 and archived by the owner on August 30. Of course, their temporary nature was not disclosed to the reviewer pre-publication -- just urgent requests to coordinate the publication of the caches to coincide with the event. I would hope any future requests from this CO receives some very careful examination and very pointed questioning.
  8. no, but you can hide them by clicking the x to the right.
  9. Sounds to me like the CO likes being on peoples ignore list. Edit: One could say that if a solution is submitted to the reviewer the puzzle is solvable. Going beyond that strikes me as getting into the wow factor.
  10. Where did you get the card? ebay purchases of this sort of device can be iffy at best.
  11. In my area, signatures are almost always dated, but some of the high volume cachers have taken to stamping, and I never see stamps dated. Did you take the geocaching quiz in the Geocaching blog? You'll love the question on logging where they show a bunch of signatures on the log, all undated. That's weird, the "awesome log" photo I saw of a log inside a hollowed book, all the sigs were dated. Apparently the pictures you see after answering are rotated. The one I saw had Moun10bike, Prying Pandora and some other lackeys on the log. It waS a picture of the log.

  13. I think a couple hamsters died. I haven't got mine yet this week and I generally don't have a problem with my private domain.
  14. Interesting thought. I would suggest they be called traditional, unless, of course, they are not at the listed coordinates. Then they should be called mystery cache if you have to solve a puzzle to get the coordinates or multicache if you have to find a series of caches to find the final one.
  15. We are now win 10 enabled Bookmark is posted and my website is updated with data file. Good job picking the caches, I haven't found any of them Problem children #1 GC11KE8 - Last three DNF #5 GCPEAR - Last three DNF. #35 GC3WWAY - Last four DNF #36 GC5RY2A _ Disabled #76 GC4RZZ8 _ Last four DNF #94 GC5MKEC - Disabled #107 GC4WAMT - Last seven DNF
  16. It will be a day or two before I get the bookmark up, Travis caught me in the middle of a win 10 upgrade.
  17. Prior to the W10 upgrade I was able to click "write" as per the procedure i documented in my posting and the geocache (GPX file) would be sent to the GPS. That is how i used the website to transfer the selected geocaches to my GPS. And i was not a premium member. So it worked then, but not now. Trying to figure out why it wont work now If your not a premium member you should have never received .gpx files, but instead you should have gotten .loc files. The windows upgrade does not change that. Perhaps i haven't been clear. Prior to W10 i was able to send geocaches to my GPS by using the procedure i mentioned in the first post. Did you read what i wrote in the post and is that method clear to you?. Are you saying i cant do that transfer unless i am a premium member? And yet i have been able to so in the past on a W8.1 and W7 PC, as most recently as two weeks ago Please explain .gpx files are a premium member feature. Regular members get .loc files. Perhaps something has changed on the website in the last two weeks.

  19. If you can't download gpx files why do you think you can transfer them to your GPS?
  20. I find this highly offensive. I think folks with only 200 finds should keep their mouths shut and learn a bit more about the game before they start in on the senseless attacks. The OP said "it might explain some some folks, not all folks. Although i could care less, i have have no doubt fudging has gone on with smiley count. I see no reason to be "highly offended" and then on top of that, tell someone to keep their mouth shut. I'm not sure what's so offensive anyway. We all know that questionable logging behaviour (throwdowns, too lazy to sign, container swapping, etc.) happens. Face it, the person using questionable tactics to increase their find count will, by their very nature, have a higher find count. It isn't the cacher with 200 finds that's dropping throwdowns and skipping signing on hordes of caches. If they were, they wouldn't have only 200 finds. Now, don't confuse the above with saying that all high-number cachers are this way. It's just that the questionable loggers will tend to fall within this group. From my experience it normally is the high numbers cachers with the generic GSAK logs that pass through an area and never sign any logs. I have a lot of low number cachers claiming finds on some of my more difficult finds. Their signatures don't appear in the paper log. Funny all the high number cachers do sign the log. I guess those low number finders have a hard time making the pen work.
