Full log in GPX file?

I don't know if I'm right, but this macroscript for gsak fetches one page from geocaching.com for every cache in the database to retrieve the logs? wich for a single pocket query is usally 500 pages?

 

My thought is that if a couple of people use this script regulary, this will end up in almost a constant DDoS to the server...

 

And a lot of people complains about the slow page... I can't se any connection... (not just this script I guess)

I had only 38 logs in one cache so I could have edited the GPX file myself, but it was easier this way. Don't think the 18 extra logs did any harm in my case. Or???

I wouldn't recommend that you or anyone else uses that macro until TPTB weigh in on the issue. To me, it seams like a clear violation of GC.com's ToS. I did a quick scan of both threads on GSAK's site and couldn't find a mention of that process actually being approved by TPTB. I'd hate to see any of us booted because of something that was suggested on another site.
