This was in a cache.  I uploaded it to Google plus because it was the only way I could find to do a google image search on my smartphone.  After uploading, I could click and hold and select "search google for this image" and find out what it was.  Then I found an app that could read it.  Job done!

A minute's silence, please, for all the geocaches that are getting blown away in all this wind.  There will probably be a few DNFs in the coming days :)

Anybody else having problems with geotjek.dk?  Can't access it at all right now.

project-gc is working but running a little behind — 41 hours instead of the usual 24.  Perhaps, as you say, it's all on the way back.
Geotjek worked last night for me as I was second to solve GC4CEK0.  But soon after that I got errors, and then nothing.  And that was 16+ hours ago.  Coincidentally, perhaps, Certitude was down a couple of days ago.

Aaaargh!  "geomate.jr" adverts on Geocaching.com are driving me mad.  I can't look at a puzzle without it taking my attention.  I know that's the point of an advert but it's really distracting.
Certain websites / services show adverts to non-paying members, but Groundspeak are flashing this rubbish at paying members too.  Not happy, not renewing my premium membership if this carries on.

Installed; it works, but I'm a little worried about the fact that the extension can access my data.  In fact, no.  Uninstall.

"It is peak season for cache placement. Your volunteer reviewer will strive to begin the review process within the next 7 days."
Jeg har fået denne besked i juli, august, september, november, december og januar.  Hvornår er det ikke peak season? :p

Tænkte også det samme forleden, da jeg fik beskeden ved publish af min første cache :-) For jeg vil nu ikke tro at det er højsæson lige nu...

Er der nogen, der vil bytte en list arkiverede caches i storkøbenhavn?  Jeg har nogle, men ikke alle.  GC kode er nok for mig :)

Hi Lars,
Sorry for the late reply.  There were fifteen on that list that were new, which is impressive given the lists that I have been given :)  Thank you for them.

I saw this and thought of you.
You said years ago something along the lines "September 11th doesn't exist as a date anymore. Instead we have the anniversary of September 11th."

Soon, every date will be just an echo of another date. Perhaps it will be this year. Perhaps that's what the Maya were getting at with (the anniversary of) 21st December 2012. The date the world finally disappeared up its own calendrical backside :)

I want to buy some geocache containers!  Is there a seller in the Copenhagen area with a website or shop?

I'm thinking about making a Letterbox, but making it fiendishly difficult.  I can't actually work out if this is considered "OK" or not?
I don't have much experience with letterboxes, but I have found one or two that I had to solve to find the final location... so I guess it's ok.  Am I right or wrong?
den sure kalkun
