For the benefit of those who never stray outside the UK forum, geocaching.com has been nominated for a Webby's People's Voice Award. It's well ahead of the competition, but a few more votes can't hurt! The relevant thread in the General forum is here, and here's the site where you can vote (you have to register first).

 

SimonG.org - now with added blog!

I tried that but after I registered when I logged in it kept telling me that I had cookies switched off. As far As I know this isn't true! A little/lot off subject I know but could someone more computer knowledgable tell me how to get around this and also why Java wont run on my comp - I use internet explorer 6.0 with Windows XP.

 

Its just a hunt for a lunch box, why be so serious!?! badgerslayer.gif

Have a butchers at Tools, Internet Options, Security. Select Internet & reduce the security level till it works OK.

Is that Java or Javascript?

If Java it might be because M$ lost a court case which meant they could no longer distribute their Java VM (it doesn't comply with the standard). Try installing the official one from Sun.

 

If Javascript it is probably because you have Active Scripting disabled in your security options or possibly (less likely) because M$ Javascript doesn't comply with the standard. If the second, then most sites will still work.

The second ten million caches were the worst too.

If you apply SP1 to IE6 then it loads you up the Java VM (because Sun FORCED them to do so!!) although Microsoft say it will disappear again in a later release.

Noone in their right mind would place a cache THERE....

Put a vote and a review on there. Don't know what Geocaching.com will get out of it but if they want our support I am happy to give it.

 

Thanks

Geocaching's a named participant in the Community category, and out in front, but it's also gaining some ground as a write-in in the following categories:

Games, Living, Sport and Travel.

 

So don't just vote in Community, enter a write-in vote in those other categories too.

 

For anyone who's not sure how to do it, just enter Geocaching in the first box, then http://www.geocaching.com in the second then check the button and Submit.
