It's supposed to give you lots of stats on your finds like average terrain, % micros found etc - worked fine for me the other day!
Enter mt name and search for my finds to see what it does.

I've just had a look at it, and it's an interesting programme, I may upload my PQ later?

Yep. Another day, still the same. I'm getting bored with the concept now. Convince me why we should persevere... Confused

Spoiler Sync

I had forgot about this site, as it's one that I haven't used, but with the hope of a new PDA for Crimbo, I may just end up using it.

How to paperless cache with an ipod:

I was skeptical but it seems to work (scrolling through long multis is a lot easier with the ipod than with our PDA too Very Happy

If you are a GeoCoin icon nerd, you might find this useful.. Very Happy

Did you know that when you log a coin, it automatically sends an email to the owner? This is particularly annoying if your coin goes to an event and it is logged / discovered by 50 people.Embarassed

To avoid the owner being flooded, use this WAP facility on your PC (NOT on your mobile phone!!)
It's also a bit faster than messing about with the image heavy GC.com pages, especially if you have loads of coins to log.Twisted Evil

Just used it to log my coin back out of the event, and it was faster and I still haven't received the email. What this does mean though is that you may miss some interesting logs, if they are made through the WAP?

This is true - other logs are not visible - however, if you have lots of logs to make for "discovered" coins, you don't annoy the owners - this might encourage more folk to let their coins be discovered at events. Or you can dip into logs as you see fit using the standard browser interface (oooh!) - a bit like looking at back logs of cache visitors.
The person who put me up to this is Edinburgh Walker who would prefer this method to log his coins - he is good enough to hand out the sheets with the tracking codes so we could all oblige?

Thanks for this - I was thinking earlier on logging coins that certain people must be annoyed at me logging loads of their coins!

This is useful

The first one is the best - download it and install in Firefox. Then in your Google search bar it adds an option to search geocaching. you can search for names, waypoints etc.

http://itsnotaboutthenumbers.com/ is a good stats program that is viewable from any computer once you've uploaded your PQ of finds. Also optionally viewable by other people.


I've also discovered how to get your stats on the top ten lists (although Cache Hit seems to have figured this one out before me). When you submit your PQ enter a password. Then you can login at the top right of any page that lets you set your home country to be UK. It then knows to add you to the UK stats.
