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 .

Spark_ie, I'm not going to make the pub tonight (leaving tomorrow): had to work until late today, and
now I'm off to my former room mates' place.
We'll have to try again when I'm back.
I did manage to do your cache, nice one!

Back in Cork for the viva on 10 June. Eeek!
If I pass, apparently I'll get to vote for the Irish senate. The power!

Hope to do Spark_ie's new city caches, but will travel with non-caching family, so we'll see...

My Cobh one and Bluebell woods would suit the family well ;)

Vivas are hyped up to be terrible things, I've done one for my MSc thesis and they're not that bad, the instructors want to you pass.

Yep, noone wants to fail someone - they will know how much work you have done to get there (and they will all have been in your situation themselves at one point!) Hope it all goes well on the 10th!
