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 .

New uni module

Post by TheBigAndyT » Mon Jan 28, 2013 10:49 am

I've started a part time degree and I've just got my first assignment for the second semester

"The aim of this assignment is to provide you with the opportunity to familiarise yourself with GPS tracking devices and to report on this technology and its application within healthcare provision"

I think I should be ok with the first part

this is brilliant!

When I was in uni I had to do assignments/essays on Kant and and Descartes!
which are considered "late" philosophers comparing them to the classics
which I found much easier and actually helpful! I should really get
all my old essays out of the library sent them to print24 and have
them printed to a book "the complete works of ...."

good luck!
