Excellent but one thing. Could you make it stand out more on the page. Make it so it is the first thing that catches the eye. For me it didn't when I looked at the page. Maybe a bigger font and/or maybe bold it. *Waves magic wand* ... done - red and bold. Next up, blinking marquee text ... ... just...

This may sound harsh, but why not just block people from making logs against the gc.com logs here? Said that ealier and it's not going to happen. Okey dokey, funsters, hold on to your hats, coz Mind Socket's pushin' code! The log add/edit page now shows a warning to the unwary who try to log a grou...

So you are suggesting that cachers should lose the ability to add logs for their overseas and locationles caches or to add images to their logs here? Sorry, I don't agree with that. It's too heavy handed. No I don't think it is to heavy handed. Isn't there a import function to add logs that are not...

Because some caches, notably locationless but also overseas caches that have been found by holidaying Australian cachers don't appear in the feeds so there has to be a way for the finders to enter their finds. Finders may also wish to add images to their logs here ( As I have on one occasion). Why ...

hi cached

Looks like you got my user name wrong. When I had a look at the tree it say that I'm "Mag" and not "Dooghan". Just letting you know.

For me I only check them if I'm in the area or if someone has had a problem with the cache. If it is a problem then it would depend on what the problem is to how fast I fix it. But as most of my caches are close by I can check on then within a day or two. Otherwise I don't worry about them. Dooghan

If it was me I would mount the laptop in the boot on it side not flat. If you have the harddrive flat the heads in the drive can smash into the platters and destroy the drive. I would get a touch screen and GPS mouse to hook up to it. My 2 cents

I was thinking more from a kid point of view at the time. If a kid was taken by someone, then the kid could call for help with it. The person may not realise at the time that it is more them a watch. But as a parent wanting to check up on they child every 5 mins.......NO. That is not what I would wa...

But we are doing most of that now. A number of geocaches are using PDA's and GPS's to find a location. And when you are doing multi cache, to get to the next level you have to do the first one. I think someone should tell this guy about geocaching
