EcoBaby

Many old time cachers may be pleased to know that EcoTeam now have 3 members! Sagan Eli Jones was born 11-5-11 1:55pm 2.48kg or 5lb/7 in the old money. EcoNic and EcoSagan are doing fine. Whether or not EcoDave is doing fine is hotly debated in psychology circles: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dzrt...

Re: Geocaching Video Presentation - Early History & Megacaches

You learn something new everyday. Last time I tried to upload a video over ten minutes it wouldn't go. Something must have changed recently. Nothing has changed, it's still a 10 minute limitation. I can upload any length because I'm a Youtube Partner, hence the ads on the video which I get a commis...

Didn't go to the MSP430 days, haven't heard about that watch. Got a pic? EcoDave. At the MSP430 Days, I usually ran one of these off three lemons with copper (20c coins) and zinc (galvanised iron) electrodes, just to show that it was really low power. One's been running off a 2032 battery for almos...

That's like the proverbial piece of sting question :shock:

First prototype from concept to working prototype was about 30 hours work all up. Not much at all.

How long does it take to actually make one? A few hours work I guess.

Yep, much nerdier than my old Casio DB-102! Did you get one of those MSP430 watches at a TI MSP430 Day a few years ago, Dave? They weren't as sophisticated, of course (mainly lacking the buttons) but were still pretty cool. I've got one going into a midnight-only cache sometime Real Soon Now... So,...

I'm still happily use my monochrome Yellow eTrex or my Foretrex with no mapping, and amazingly I'm still able to find caches! :roll: I even convert to UTM and plot in the paper street directory :shock: For the amount of caching I do these days, I don't even bother to upload waypoints to the GPS any ...

Google Earth mapping of Sydney Harbour on Aust Day!

Google will be re-mapping Sydney Harbour on Australia Day, for Google Maps, and presumably Google Earth as well.
