technically it is easy to host (say) geocaching.co.nz and geocaching.com.au on the same codebase on the same server. the server would just pick up what domain name is being referenced and skin the page accordingly. in fact the codebase already has support for multiple skins so that when it is run on...

we (dimly) recall working with some of the other geocaching sites and software makers to develop a standard. we eventually implemented a gpx file format and released it under a creative commons license. vk3jap if you'd like to help we'd appreciate you emailing colorado to ask them to support a more ...

so far, our vote is for richary and zactyl because they have contributed to the site by listing some of their caches on gca. this is not to denigrate the contribution of the other members, but for several years now we've been saying to people if they want to support the site and thank the developers...

lots of great discussion! yes, the domain is owned by i! through one of our companies. we are happy to transfer it to an appropriate entity (eg a geocaching association, developer, elder-statesperson of the gca community, new association formed just for gca, etc) to help the site. we chose .com.au a...

try holding down either control/alt or shift (we can't remember which) while pressing the refresh button on your browser. this will cause your browser to re-download the style sheet

gca server proposal

there's been a few threads going on about a new server. the technical threads in the developer area started discussing financial issues and the financial threads in the senate area started discussing technical issues, so we thought we'd take stock and formally combine the discussion here in the sena...

I got a reply and it looks hopeful (send email to C@W).. basically its around $100-$150/ month, but they can offer a better deal for a shared server. we should probably let them know that it's currently approx 25GB/month, so does the $100-$150/month still stand? regarding the server, a shared serve...

Came across this one - their shared server plans don't seem to be a ridiculous price. www.gohosting.com.au thanks. comments: shared server: gca would most likely blow the resource limits of a share server. please refer to c@w's comments on page 7 of this thread gohosting server co-location: GCA is ...

we've just turned the feed back on it may take a week or so for your caches and logs to ripple through we monitored the performance of the server while the feeds were down and it didn't really change. the big change in performance was when we disabled the search engines from crawling the sites (main...

a message on the homepage sounds like a good idea as for bandwidth, the figures from jan-jul 08 are: - bandwidth: 21GB/month, rising in the last three months to 25GB/month (this will reduce this month as we have disabled web crawlers which represent five times more traffic than users!) - hits: prett...

the gold medal goes to http://geocaching.com.au/cacher/Sc00t.rss which is being viewed on average 435 times per day (that's once every 3.3 minutes.) the results are cached, but it still chews up resources. a big hit appears to be yahoo and other crawlers. they generate five times the traffic of real...

thanks fyi we aren't fishing for reports of speed increases... we are trying to work out what is causing a load which is higher than we think it ought to be. hence we turned off the feed to see whether they were the things bogging down the site. if there's not much difference, that means it's not th...
