My #RaspberryPi wouldn't update to #OpenELEC 5.0 with a reboot. I'm supposed to be able to drop the .tar file in the update folder and do a reboot that way. There is no UPDATE folder. #Help

Maybe this helps?  I haven't worked this distro yet.  https://github.com/OpenELEC/OpenELEC.tv/issues/3893

Hey There #Geocachers :

What do you look for in a #WhereIGo cache? Trivia, logic problems, tour guide, or something else?

Bleh! I've tried Ingress. It seems cool. But I don't have that much spare time or tons of data on my plan.

I'm looking to do a series of caches themed on the TV show LOST and I wanted to do all the different cache types: Traditional, Multi, Mystery, Letterbox, & WhereIGo

Has anyone else noticed that in your #PocketQuery emails from #Groundspeak that it's a download link instead of an attachment to your email?

I guess they are just saving upload bandwidth. But I used to count on those emails having attachments. That way I don't get boned for data usage when I save it to my smartphone later.

these days I just download em to Locus Pro, then export a single aggregated PQ from there to my GPSr.  Saves a lot of futzing around.

I'm really liking the beta Premium Advanced Search at Geocaching.com (#Geocaching +GoGeocaching).

A couple comments:

1. Pocket Query (#PocketQuery) - There needs to be a Create A Pocket Query button. Otherwise this super cool searching is all for naught.

2. Toggle - Once you click "Map these results" you seem to be stuck on the map unless you click on a cache. it'd be nice to be able to toggle back to your search to possibly fine tune it more. the radius would be common to want to adjust.

3. Filter Options - They rock. some are obvious (fav points, radius). But some options some were a pleasant surprise: exclude finds by specific users, corrected coords, & personal note.

I really hope they make similar improvements to the PQ creation tool.

Today I logged a find for the Green Thing, one of Ontario's oldest caches. It was a short walk down a trail, just steps off the trail, and a super easy find. Very cool!

Ok, I'm normally a fan of your videos. But we don't get a panorama from the top? No look at the cache? What a let down!

I heard about this new technology. IKEA calls its the 'Book Book'.
The logbook contains a chronicle of everyone who has seen the bug, and where it has been. While most of that is recorded on the online logs, that information is often not easy to get to in the field. Not to mention it is cool to have a physical record of its journeys, like stamps in a passport.

Truthfully, the IKEA catalogue IS awesome. The way they seamlessly integrated the physical catalogue with their app & website is something that should make MANY retailers jealous.

Has anyone else noticed that the #PocketQuery emails no longer have an attachment but a download or preview link instead?

June 18, 2014 was when they removed the attachments from the PQ e-mails.

Is there a way to add a cache to a Bookmark list from the official ios app?

I want to make a difficult Lamp Post cache. So I need to buy one of my own so I can build it.

The trouble is I can't seem to find a place that sells them. Ideas?

So what does everyone think about the update to the official #Geocaching #iOS intro app? I guess what I'm really wondering is why did they do this to the free app and not the paid app?

It kind of looks like they are going to revamp the free app so that it acts like the paid app as long as you have a premium membership.

Which makes sense. They will make (hopefully) repeated sales from memberships rather than one time sales of the app.
Geocaching is a treasure hunting game where you use a GPS to hide and seek containers with other participants in the activity. Geocaching.com is the listing service for geocaches around the world.

I'd contact the CO for sure. Explain about muggles AND how to get proper coords.

Yeah, there are a couple caches in my area published by people with 2 or 3 finds and haven't logged on in over a year. Sadly, the caches aren't going away anytime soon.

Is post a log with corrected coords explaining about the CO. And then I'd post a maintenance log. If it's still there in a month is post a needs archived log. I think I just want to always give the CO the benefit of the doubt.

I've been writing and performing poetry since 2005. When the Roxy Coffee shop opened I thought that this would be the perfect place to host a poetry event in the Acton area.
