  1. An easy way to check it: On geocaching.com's search page, if you select the country then it shows you the numbers. I tested Austria, and got 9160 caches. But the numbers is of course living all the time. The cachers is ranked on http://www.cacherstats.com/, so maybe they have the numbers of cachers in each country
  2. You can try to put it if a comment in the html, like the cache "aprillia" in Finland =)
  3. You can also put yourself as a friend and try it.
  4. Discussed many times. Me myself has started it at least twice. (Didn't remember that I asked it before) But it's a bug.
  5. You find info about the .gpx file here www.topografix.com/gpx.asp It's a xml file so maybe you'll find somkind of xml to ... translator that works.
  6. When you set the day for tomorrow, did you check the row where it says something about server time. Try to set the day for the same day as the server time. I did that mistake in the beginning. It could be different days, depending on where you live. Here in Finland I use to get the mail in the afternoon of the day I've marked. So if you want to try, set it the same day as the server time, or maybe mark all the days, and when you have got the mail unmark all again.
  7. The adopter can try to go to geocaching.com/adopt and check if it's available anyway. I did it on one cache before I got the mail and it worked.
  8. Actually the mail should contain a zip file. This contain two gpx files. Move both to the gpx folder in the garmin. The bigger file is all the caches, and the smaller has all the additional waypoints in it, like Parkingspots, steps in multis and so on. I use this once a week with my Colorado.
  9. Noticed a log 23 January 2005, and as I understand it was renewed then. Maybe the owner changed the date on the GCAD% then to the newer date?
  10. Maybe you already fixed them, I can't find them any more.
  11. I don't understand german, so I don't know what you logged, sorry for that.
  12. You have logged it May 3 and twice January 3 Maybe that's the problem?
  13. I sometimes gets mail when someone dropps a coin in a cache, but I only get the name of it, I can't get any more information about it. So I think it's safe. But just incase drop it after it's published.

    .efw file

    I use IZArc. Think it's the same price on it, and supporting many archive formats.
  15. The owner of a TB can recalculate the travel distance by selecting the option on the right side menu on the TB page. I use it sometimes when a TB travels long distances, works fine for me.
  16. A good idea, but I usually have three languages in my caches, english, swedish and finnish. But I also tried many times to, at least, have the english description in it as it's good that tourists also understand it. I have a friend that has been to Germany for some caches, and he said that it should be good if the descriptions had been in english. He got at least one cache where it was something written in red. He had no clue what it was, it could have been something important but when he didn't understand it so...
  17. On the cache page, in the Navigation box on the right side, you'll find a "ignore listing" link. As I understand that's what you're looking for.
  18. Have you installed the missing plug-in?
  19. It's a problem, but disussed many times before. I also started a new thread on it. Try to search the forum. The titles on the threads are not so obvious, but I think you'll find them. But some of them are here: http://forums.Groundspeak.com/GC/index.php?showtopic=216601 http://forums.Groundspeak.com/GC/index.php...=214243&hl= http://forums.Groundspeak.com/GC/index.php...=214243&hl=
  20. A little bit more from http://www.fileinfo.com/extension/efw Compressed .ZIP or executable .EXE file renamed by CA Security Centre to have a ".efw" extension; typically applies to e-mail attachments scanned by Computer Associates (CA) antivirus software. EFW zipped files may be opened by changing the file extension to ".zip" and opening the file with a decompression utility, such as WinZip or Stuffit Expander; executable files may be run directly by changing the file extension to ".exe" and opening the file.
  21. Oops, now I'm also getting it. And I'm logged in. Opened the map, pressed the cacheicon, and there it was. It pops up the same the the cache description pops up. And it don't disapperar ever though I press the X in the corner.
  22. It's easy to get a free e-mail account and configure the personal settings to the address. Then I wouldn't get any log mails. But ... I want to get them, to see what cachers think about them. I think the cache isn't interesting if I only get TFTC logs, I like to get some feedback on them, and it's also nice to get the feedback the same time the log it. If the log isn't interesting I erase it from my email at once.
