  1. Not sure if there is another thread on this, but there have been a ton of challenge caches popping up lately. I'm not a big fan and would, frankly, rather see some more creative hides / themes. I know others enjoy them, so I'm glad you like them. Just not for me.
  2. In case you were wondering... I contacted Ranger Fox on the GC.com forums. He fixed the issue - which was that I didn't assign unique zone names. He updated the code to allow this now, but I've also changed the zone names to be unique.
  3. Using RangerFox's builder. Pretty easy to navigate and create the WIG, but can't seem to download, publish, or otherwise use the emulator. It seems pretty straightforward to do it, but not working. Any words of wisdom?
  4. RIP Bosun. Always enjoyed his caches in the SW area of Houston.
  5. I enjoyed it when folks would find my caches and would always be willing to provide clues / answer questions. I think folks would rather find an interesting cache with a little help than not find or solve it. So, I don't really care if they shared information to either solve a puzzle or find the cache. I don't care if they give credit to others who may have assisted in their logs, but I tend to do that myself. I would watch the DNFs just to make sure it was not missing or otherwise broken. If it's really gone, not DNF'ing it will just delay getting it up and running again, but also understand that there are many reasons for not DNF'ing it too. I think the point is to provide caching experiences which allow folks to play the game in their way and, hopefully, enjoy the journey.
  6. Meh. Live and let cache.
  7. I understand Larry. I've always appreciated the list you maintain and in the past was active to nab those older caches. It was fun finding caches which hadn't been found in such a long time. I hope you continue it. At some point, however, I'd rather archive them then maintain them. I kept them for a while after I moved, just because they were among my favorites. BB's somewhat self-righteous note (no matter how well intentioned) was just the final push I needed to close them down and open up the area for LPCs and shrubbery caches.
  8. Thanks Bert for reminding me to archive Sleeper Cells. I had taken all the elements of the cache down in Jan with the intent of archiving it, but I had forgotten to (or more likely - was loathe to actually kill it outright). I had fun building the cache and reading the logs, so I guess I was a bit slow to actually pull the trigger. Call me sentimental. Your note also encouraged me to archive my remaining caches as they are simply not getting much run any longer. It's something I've been considering for a while, but this was the impetus I needed.
  9. Looks like they lost the domain...
  10. Here's the link to the thread on snake bites.
  11. Also, one should consider how to treat a snake bite correctly. I think there are some threads on this topic somewhere, but having seen many cottonmouths in GBP, including watching one slither over my boot at one cache, it's something we all need to consider.
  12. I was just perusing this thread again... I know it was a few months ago, but which key did she use to make it sound decent?
  13. Any updates on the FTFC? It's been 2 months and the TB was placed in a still to be published cache a few weeks ago. I suspect there may be some issues with getting it published, but was just wondering.
  14. Take care team OSC. I've always tried to follow your example and live your motto.
