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 .

Re: Talk about a power trail...

Boring is an understatement. On the subject of boring I think it is a factor to be considered when placing caches regardless of power trails!! :rant :rant

Re: Urgent Notice for all Northern Ireland Cachers

I may as well put in my tuppence worth. I was walking in Drum Manor Forest Park at the weekend and noticed several ropes hanging from branches. I thought at the time that the forestry must have no issue with kids swinging several feet above hard ground on an improvised swing and yet they have a prob...

Re: Possible Sligo Event In May

If I were you I would follow Dino's advice. Some great caches in Sligo and the area. Just pick a date that suits you and all whom it suits will be there. Looking forward to it-if it suits. [-o<

If I go through them carefully I will find his message but in pieces i.e. a few words on one line and then some numbers etc and then more words.

Re: Recovering deleted material

Nothing saved since the delete. Working on the undelete recommended. It lists all that is on the stick and stuff that has been deleted in the past but not the folder I want to recover. Posted on their forum so fingers are crossed.

Re: Palm M515 and Windows 7

Not a happy bunny at the minute! Went live to a rep from Palm and it appears my M515 is not compatible with 7 and wont be. I know its old but it works and feel a bit miffed to say the least. My laptop is XP so at least I can withdraw to the dark ages on that. My son has a Apple Mac all singing, all ...
