  1. Hi Graeme, I have a Pebble 2 and it's finding my location and correctly loading the nearest caches, but when I click on the middle button to navigate it goes back the menu. If I click on Watch Caching it repeats this. How do I get it to load a cache?
  2. Some well-done fun with Photoshop. That clip actually offers a decent tip about using the puppet-warp feature. I agree. There are 23 lessons so far. I like the way that he shows the actual steps. I wonder if he's using Adobe Captivate to create these tutorials? [/size] Puppet Warp. LOL! You should color it yellow!

  4. Youtube has a cool and humorous series on teaching Photoshop called "You Suck at Photoshop." is one example. Enjoy!
  5. Nice to hear from you, TFTC! I've been caching less the past couple of years too, but still go now and then when I get some free time. If you ever want to go caching let me know in your San Diego Events thread...
  6. Sure. I think it is safe to say that there are hundreds of lamp posts that I had never known about, let alone visited, prior to finding a cache there. Hundreds? Was it like Chinese water torture? But seriously, finding cool new places is what got me into it!
  7. That was VERY cool!! Great article!! Like
  8. Ole heard voices from down in his pond and he went to check and found a bunch of young women skinny-dipping there. They all screamed and went down to the deep end where the water was up to their necks. One of the women shouted, "We're not coming out until you leave!" The old man said, "I didn't come down here to watch you ladies swim naked. I came here to feed the alligator."
  9. Hey, where y' been big guy? Truth is that FaceBook has destroyed the Forum threads. So it goes ... and the written language is going down the pooper with them. Too soon it will be "Back when I was a boy there were things we called sentences, paragraphs, letters, and books." Roman Empire ... all over again. Harmon SD Rowdies Hi Harmon, I haven't been caching as much to do other things like spending more time with my non-caching family. I recently took my daughter on a couple of hikes. It was great to get out again! It looks like you have a nice new hike up in the Cuyamacas! I guess they must have recently changed the cache rules in the Cuyamacas. That hike is on my short list! I'll try my luck at FB to see if anyone is game... In case, someone does check this thread, it looks like there are 3 hikes in the Cuyamacas: Cuyamaca Peak Loop: 10.4 miles with 2000' of vertical Cuyamaca West Mesa Loop: 7.3 miles South Boundary Fire Road: 8.6 miles
  10. It's been a long time since I posted in this thread. Does anyone still use this thread anymore?
  11. LOL! Nice work! Hope you didn't take Zeber's bus :laughing: :laughing:
  12. hahahaha!!! Thanks for the laugh!!! :laughing: It hurts you made me laugh so hard!!! :laughing::laughing:
  13. Groan.... Jodi, do I have to come down there and spank you? That one was ruff!
  14. Hi Hammerfel! Welcome! Harmon had some good advice. I'd also recommend looking for larger caches. The size of the cache container is indicated at the top of each cache page. Regular sized cache containers are your best bet to find swag. Good luck!
  15. How is Norma? A sweet grandmother telephoned St. Joseph 's Hospital. She timidly asked, "Is it possible to speak to someone who can tell me how a patient is doing?" The operator said,"I'll be glad to help, dear. What's the name and room number of the patient?" The grandmother in her weak, tremulous voice said,"Norma Findlay, Room 302." The operator replied,"Let me put you on hold while I check with the nurse's station for that room." After a few minutes, the operator returned to the phone and said, "I have good news. Her nurse just told me that Norma is doing well. Her blood pressure is fine; her blood work just came back normal and her physician, Dr. Cohen, has scheduled her to be discharged tomorrow." The grandmother said,"Thank you. That's wonderful. I was so worried. God bless you for the good news." The operator replied,"You're more than welcome. Is Norma your daughter?" The grandmother said,"No, I'm Norma Findlay in Room 302, But no one tells me $hit."
  16. Hey ol' buddy, thanks for asking. Image forensics is near and dear to me and takes up a bit of my time now and then on request. What you see is a qualified and accurate discussion of image alterations as done by a rank amateur. The discussion applies to Adobe Photoshop as well as to Adobe Illustrator. Thing is that the information defining the individual pixels of an image comes down to a particular setting or not setting the bits of a pixel; whether 8-bits, 16-bits, or more. 'Tis the bits that determine color, brightness. opacity, texture, and more of image pixels. Bit level, that's the trick but mostly not worth the bother unless for motive or profit. Using a brush or line tool set to, say, black, and used to either draw or paint will result in a series of identical pixels as seen in the presentation. Of course one could vary the brush or line tool setting for a more convincing result but that would take great patience and skill for a convincing result. For printed characters either scanned or typed there's a far better way of altering the image as I've done many times on these Forum threads as described next. Altering a line, paragraph, or page of type with less chance of detection one should simply make use of the characters already within the image ... that is to either clone or copy and paste the charcters as needed to revise the text. When there's a need to alter written text it's far easier to forge on paper and then scan the result rather than trying to use a brush or line tool. Still, as last resort one could make use of brush or line tool if followed up by using dodge and burn tools to introduce pixel variations that would approximate signature pixels at the cost of a lot of detailed work. A crude example of this sort of thing can be seen at the link to follow. Note the fourth line of the signboard, altered by way of copying and pasting characters from the signboard and by using parts of other characters to construct new characters such as the 'B,' 'U,' and 'K' as I recall. Tedius would be the operative word. Altered Signboard So much to say about this subject but I shant go on. Of course the premise that the image was actually downloaded from the White House site should also be authenticated. Thanks for asking, Harmon SD Rowdies Thanks Harmon. Seems odd that someone would go to great lengths to make that document look like a forge, but I guess it's possible. I'm not a lawyer but it seems like they could open themselves to a libel suit by doing it and posting it on Youtube. My guess is that once the video got out, the document would have been pulled and fixed. If it's still there then they are even dumber than I thought. Love your work on the sign, Harmon. That is not that easy to do. I still on occasion use some of the Photoshop stuff you taught me. Take care!
  17. Harmon, I'd like to get your expert opinion on . What the guy says makes a lot of sense but I've never used Adobe Illustrator.
  18. A mature (over 50) lady gets pulled over for speeding.... Older Woman: Is there a problem, Officer? Officer: Ma'am, you were speeding. Older Woman: Oh, I see. Officer: Can I see your license please? Older Woman: I'd give it to you but I don't have one. Officer: Don't have one? Older Woman: Lost it, 4 years ago for drunk driving. Officer: I see...Can I see your vehicle registration papers please. Older Woman: I can't do that. Officer: Why not? Older Woman: I stole this car. Officer: Stole it? Older Woman: Yes, and I killed and hacked up the owner. Officer: You what? Older Woman: His body parts are in plastic bags in the trunk if you want to see The Officer looks at the woman and slowly backs away to his car and calls for back up. Within minutes 5 police cars circle the car. A senior officer slowly approaches the car, clasping his half drawn gun. Officer 2: Ma'am, could you step out of your vehicle please! The woman steps out of her vehicle. Older woman: Is there a problem sir? Officer 2: One of my officers told me that you have stolen this car and murdered the owner. Older Woman: Murdered the owner? Officer 2: Yes, could you please open the trunk of your car, please. The woman opens the trunk, revealing nothing but an empty trunk. Officer 2: Is this your car, ma'am? Older Woman: Yes, here are the registration papers. The officer is quite stunned. Officer 2: One of my officers claims that you do not have a driving license. The woman digs into her handbag and pulls out a clutch purse and hands it to the officer. The officer examines the license. He looks quite puzzled. Officer 2: Thank you ma'am, one of my officers told me you didn't have a license, that you stole this car, and that you murdered and hacked up the owner. Older Woman: Bet the liar told you I was speeding, too. Moral of the Story: Don't Mess With Mature Ladies!
  19. He was a super nice guy full of energy. Rest in peace, Carl.
  20. I've been wanting this feature for years! It's already doing a great job capturing all the favorites that I used to add to a community favorites bookmarks list. I'm glad I will no longer have to maintain/update that list! This feature will really be useful once more people add their favorites! I added ~70 of mine! Thanks for adding this feature, Groundspeak!
