Re: 2009 Cyber Flash Mob Topic “Positive Caching Experience”

Tried using my wireless from a carpark, no luck. Went inside and risked looking like a geek, but still didn't work. Went out in the street and sat at a bus stop, and still no post. Gave up, and came home to the desktop, and see I should have kept pressing Submit. Oh well - I know my name showed as o...

Yeah the price of storage now is cheap, and a 500GB drive can be had for under $100 $89 at MSY. The best price per GB is the Seagate 1.5TB I guess the option is then to go with on board for now, and when money allows for it go with a separate card. If you're after the grunt for CAD, etc, then remov...

I don't care. If I have found it, it doesn't appear in my PQ, so I don't usually* go back.

* A clue for another cache may be placed in it, but I still wouldn't consider logging another find.

There are so many travel bugs and coins around these days, and my impression is that people no longer pay much attention to their goals, and coins have a tendency to just disappear. I aren't very confident that it would work. Incidentally, my TB won the Oz TB race in 2004 but I never got my hands on...

If you want to use the 'geocaching' functions you have to change the symbol to traditional before you do the GO TO ... a small price to pay for the convenience of having all cache types represented by their respective symbols I reckon :wink: The manual implies you can set multiple symbols as geocac...

As I've been considering upgrading too, I wonder if anyone has any comments on rhinogeo's suggestion. Are there any compelling reasons to choose a Vista over 60 or vice versa?
