March 13th 2017

When I established the forums in 2005 it was to offer a more richer web experience and greater functionality than the platform where we started this social adventure in 2003, Yahoo Groups. The forums were once a busy hive of activity and provided locals and visitors with a wealth of information just like the Geocaching Ireland Discussion Group on Facebook today.

It was a time where we didn't have the many social media platforms we have today, and it was a different time in terms of mobility and technology. There was no instant access to information, no Google Maps and a very limited base map on your GPSr. Mobile connectivity for me was a 9600bps Infrared connection from a Nokia to a laptop and in later times to a PDA using WAP.

As we moved into the social media era so did our forums users. Geocaching Ireland moved there too, and we have a thriving community on the Geocaching Ireland Discussion Group on Facebook. As a result, forum activity isn't what it used to be and I have taken the decision to disable new registrations to the forums and to make the forums read only so any information there can still be accessed.

The discussion hasn't ended, it has just moved. Join us on the Facebook Geocaching Ireland Discussion Group .

My Finds Query

When I run a My Finds PQ it results in 500 finds. It should be 1600. Any suggestions as to the problem? I haven't run such a PQ in a long time.

Re: Caches placed in locations where you have to pay to ente

I went to Castle Ward to log the caches there. At the gate I was asked for £7 for myself and £7 for my wife. I remarked that it was very expensive to park ones car and go for a walk. I was told that this price included entrance to the house. I told the guy that I had already visited the house ...

Bduninstall

I noticed something today on my computer called BduninstallTool 16,019KB, Bduninstall 355KB and BdLog 24KB. Can anyone enlighten me as to what these items are about, how they might have got there and can I safely remove them. Seems to be using a lot of space. I did google it but it was talking about...

Re: Bio mass boiler

Rapidly going off this idea!! I have spoken to a dealer and the initial outlay would be big bucks. No guarantee that the pellets are not going to soar in price due to incoming/existing restrictions on harvesting. Same applies to gasification regarding sourcing adequate timber which to burn should be...

Re: Bio mass boiler

Yes one of my concerns. The only supplier here is 'Brites' which is based here in Enniskillen. They use waste from the Balcas plant. They also produce on a larger scale in Scotland. Prices vary from £145 per ton collected to £166 delivered. I have been told that a ton equates with 900 litres o...

Bio mass boiler

I am contemplating installing a wood pellet central heating boiler. I would like to hear any views regarding this idea. Has anyone else researched the idea and run with it or on the other hand researched and not run with it.
Any info positive or otherwise appreciated.

Re: Mourne MR Donations

Sounds like a good idea Beefy. Maybe with an event which would attract more people and a BBQ with voluntary donations. Probably raise more and remove the need for one person sorting it all.

Re: Travel to Dublin

Was in Dublin yesterday and did the Raheny route. First rate. Great parking for free. Short wait for the DART and short walk from Pearse St. Biggest bonus was the hassle free exit from city centre - no traffic jams! Great job all round. Thanks Abbeyackbar for all the info. No caching done on this tr...
