RE: [gpsstash] Digest Number 278


Why not do it. The one we have now works fine, 2 might work better. I do
see a slow down in the summer, but only because people want to get out and
work around the house or do something they couldn't do over the winter. I
see it in myself and I see it with all the other players. It was great to
do something over the winter, but now I have other things to do and can only
get out for a hunt every now and then. Geo will live, it will just slow
down for now.

Subject: RE: The Death of Geocaching

Hi all,

I have actually developed a Geocaching Web site similar in purpose to Jeremy
Irish's website. It was due to launch a few months back but finances cut it
off. I have recently taken on a new role at my job which pays more. I didn't
think of launching it because Jeremy's site already had so much of a
staghold on the game.

If people are interested I will launch the site. Why would you want another
site? Well, unlike Jeremy Irish's site, everything would be free and open to
all. Eg. you want a copy of all the coordinates I have in my database? Fine,
I give you access to it.

I have even been developing a system where multiple geocaching sites can
link together and share data.

If people are interested and know where I can get cheap hosting that would
give me ASP and SQL Server access, please say! I'm more than happy to get
this baby up and running!!

Geocaching will NOT die. Especially if people like me are willing to keep it
going.



J Hurst

Yeah right, and global warming is a bad thing.

People adapt. When your scenario happens, the owners
of the caches will notice no one is coming to them and
someone else will step in with another (perhaps
copyrighted perhaps not) website. The owners of the
caches will send him their information and a new list
will be built.

that are no longer located in permafrost.

I agree... my vote is to put it up! I'll register my caches at both
sites...

I'd love to see it launched. I don't have cheap hosting to offer, but
an acceptable basic system could be built right here on Yahoo!
Groups. It has the message boards for GPS stash logs. It has a
minimal database feature for storing GPS stash coordinates. Etc. And
if access to the data is kept open, enough outside ingenuity would
pop up to create maps and whatever else people can think of. Count me
in if you decide to launch it.
