I'm not sure how you'd go with the loop thing but a star may be more in order.
If you like quality of location not just quantity give it a go.

Ok thanks for the answer !mike.

I had no trouble registering it on my old win98 machine.

I may try the GSAK forums and see if anyone is still interested in the older versions.

Is anyone been able to register GSAK 6.X under vi$ta? <P>6.X???? Might be time for an upgrade to the current 7.2.2.23, you are missing out on soooooooooo much! I'd be lucky to use 10% of what the 6.x has + GSAK is not supported by my preferred OS so for the foreseeable future I'll stick with 6.x.

Is anyone been able to register GSAK 6.X under vi$ta?

I keep geting a:

Code: Select all

Access violation at address 0045D4DD in module 'gsak.exe'. Read of address 000002CC.

Consider a wire through garden hose over a branch with lots of growing room. Only thing is you'v got to get up to put it on. Then hang a pully on that. Also remember trees move so expect fatigue.

Is it time we changed that? Perhaps list the 3 oldest so as not to fill the page up too much. :idea:

I'v found a few buried grandfather and other caches and they always seem to leak or get dirt / leaves spilled in them by finders. I'd avoid it if you can help it. The worst one was buiried in an ant mound. Only trouble the ants kept pileing dirt higher and higher on it. Its archived now thankfully :...

Seems like a case of the cache being at the wrong place at the wrong time.

Perhaps if Oenze, dak and Maccamob headed around for a chat....... :?:

personally we think it's a bit of overkill to set up an association to raise $4,000 pa, Agreed but who would accept funds. Up till now no body can complain they don't get their moneys worth.
