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 .

You can't overtake the last person in a 400 metre race, or any race (because there is nobody behind the last person). Since the leaders don't come around again then presumably they can't pass either.

So you must be a STREAKER!!!!! :D

Well done that man!

a man is dropped into a 100ft tower which has no doors or windows or other visible means of escape he is left with a regular picnic table and a saw, he manages to escape how did he get out?

He saws the table in half, two halves make a whole, he climbs through the (w)hole and escapes!

You can never overtake the last person cause you are last. What goes up a chimney down but won't go down a chimney up?

????????
It's not that hard Kili. If it were possible to overtake the last person you would have to be behind them therefore you would be last. But that's not possible therefore... oh why do I bother...pearls before swine... :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

Yes Ros, umbrella is correct.

What's the difference between a duck? (No there's nothing missing)
