The teenager who inhabits the cave at the back of our house has set up his computer to run Linux. Like many kids these days he is very talented with working with computers and is willing to spend the time is setting it up and making everything work. I admire him for that. The only concern I have wit...

Interesting info. I read where you described the coin on the other site and it sounds like an impressive coin if the manufacturer can pull of the look you are going for. I would be interested in seeing artwork when it is available.

Are you planning to bring the coins to Australia for distribution if they are produced overseas? If so then don't forget to add a cost factor for GST on importation into Australia. An extra 10% on the cost of the goods, the cost of the inwards freight, insurance and the customs duty could really blo...

Well we are on a two coin per month plan for 6 months anyway. I don't mind if I take the last coin available as I was planning to set them free anyway. That is, unless they become Precious to me *adopts Gollum like pose*. Do the GCC people need our subscription numbers for refunds, amalgamations of ...

And we joined the club ourselves about two weeks ago! I thought that it would be a easy way to get hold of some coins - and I really liked the October dragon coin! Our subscription is a six month subscription - I was going to re-evaluate after then. So unfortunately we are in the same boat as Andrew...

Certainly a gold compass rose coin would appeal to me and I would be most interested in working with other local geocoin collectors/acquirers to save on postage. I guess the only problem might be that the relative distances between us might outweigh the benefits?

We had an experience on Sunday (about lunchtime'ish) where we were trying to take a reading at a friend's place. There was some cloud cover but the reading was just plain wrong. Gave up as we had limited brain capacity after an evening of talking filosofy!
