What to do with a hitch-hiker?

A while ago I came across a hitch-hiker (Ernie) that I picked up from a cache. He has a tag that reads: My name is Ernie. I like to travel around Australia and see the sights. I am not afraid of heights, but I am not too happy about water as it makes me cold and clammy. If you can fit me in, please ...

It's a Telstra Research Lab test and obviously shouldn't be relied up on in times of emergency. As it's a TRL test, I wouldn't expect it to be up on any other Network at the moment. I would hazard a guess that it will eventually be used so when you call 1234 and ask for a decent restaurant in the ar...

Enjoy your participation in the sport and only do what you enjoy, I agree with this quote. The difficulty I sometimes run into is that there is not a sufficient amount of information initially provided to indicate whether I am going to have fun. So, sometimes, I'll get to the first waypoint and the...

Can't remember the sketch, but I think it was 'Oscar Wilde' who said it. It's been too long.

I like multi's (well, most of them). What I don't particularly like are the ones where you have no idea if it should take an hour or 5 and the ones where the final location is 500 miles away. I think a protocol should be agreed that there is enough information supplied so you can work out whether yo...

Well, I only started caching in May this year, so I haven't had the opportunity to cache in the sun. With two girls along half the time, the missus won't let us out in the rain, but when I get a chance to cache alone (like yesterday), then I'm OK with a few showers. I did get caught in major downpou...

I have FOUND that when you stick your bare arms into some of these cache locations, they come out covered in blood. I have FOUND that you can't always park near enough to the cache location. I have FOUND that wearing study footwear is better than runners that leak and you destroy 5 pairs of socks in...

I use http://www.flexihostings.net.au/home/main.php I have found them to be extremely reliable and I host 3 domains there. They are also good at responding to problem tickets and most of the time they have live help available (although I'm not surey're live in Oz). They run Australian servers, but I...

Please don't center the text. It's evil. :evil:
And I don't mean in a good way. It's very hard to read given we read from left to right and have to realign our eyes every line if it's centered.

Interesting problem you ran into. I understood most of what you explained and then go lost (but that's kind of normal). I appreciate your efforts in going to the trouble to work it all out. It makes life easier when at a quick glance you can see if it's close enough to rush to or not. Just another q...

Are you intending for the rss feed to be restricted to rss readers or can I parse the XML onto a webpage?

Um, guy turns himself in.
He turned himself in to police two days later.
Doesn't look like the GPS had anything to do with it.

Both times I gave it around 5 minutes to settle down.
Originally the reading was taken with a Garmin 38 and a EPE of 11 meters.
I now have a Garmin eTrex and I have an EPE of 4 meters.

Sorry, should have mentioned that before.
So, am I worrying for nothing or should I change it?
