Without going in to gory details, work and family and putting or house on the market (and al that involves) have consumed a huge chunk of this year, and finding time has been a challenge.

I'm working on it as we speak, and it's almost all there, but the issue of installing and depolying it in the data center is one I haven't got concrete plans for yet.

:cry:
Why should you apologize. You volunteer for this organization. Having done a little forum and server administration I am in awe of all the work that you and Caughtatwork do for this website. We are very lucky to have you. =D>
I'll second that! We do appreciate all that you do. \:D/

Swaggies are still available, but we suggest you don't do any because we are going to remove them. When we do, the text will get tidied. Thanks for the headsup.

My GCA name is Rogue, my GC name is R0gue.

On the home page, in the top RH corner where it says 'logged in as Rogue', when I click on it, this takes me to "http://geocaching.com.au/cacher/Rogue" and I can't access any of my stats or account.
When I change the URL manually to "http://geocaching.com.au/cacher/R0gue" I have my full account details.

So the system is linking to the wrong cacher name, when the cacher has a different name at GC and GCA, from that link in the top RH corner.

Hmmm, working ok for me now (although I did give the server a nudge as it was a bit slow)

Yeah I get the same with richary vs Richary. After logging in it takes me to the wrong one.

When I logged a cache on GCA I used to get a list of ten nearby unfound GCA caches. This has now disappeared. Why? I like it for logging multiple caches in an area with a new search.

Performance. Sorry. It takes too long to derive the list so we had to disable it a few weeks ago.

Dragonzone seems to be annoyed with me this morning, I have a LOT more points than I should have (Christmas present and I missed the announcement?) and when I tried to allocate a few to a cache that runs out today it won't work. :minotaur

There are additional points being allocated for December.
