Beta episode forty-eight contains a broad range of subjects
submitted by our great audience! The Bad Cop and DarrylW4 kicked off the show with feedback from
Will IB Ready. They also mentioned the Samsung Ad
brought up in
Beta.47 and the GeoGearHeads on the new CacheFace network.
We also heard from Lafitefl about his luck in being routed near
some caches by WVTim, then their efforts to find "The Library"
Cache" (GC333J2), "Widget" (GC2WX5B) and others after hearing him on Beta.41.
WVTim himself then emailed us about
Beta.46 and how he's been busy since his show working with
fellow Cachers about building their own Gadget caches. *TnT* shared his though on making NFCs as a
shortcut for a puzzle cache, making it accessible to just about
everyone. We had another story about an accidental find from
lookforgeo. JR and Juju emailed about their use of DropBox to keep their
up-to-date. Both schnider and debaere wrote in to ask about the "Beta" tag
for GeoGearHead episodes. After the drawing, NoNameYet202 asked about stats packages like
FindStatGen, BadgeGen, MyGeocachingProfile.com, and cachestat. DarrylW4 added the cross-platform GCStatistic tool. xpunkx called in to ask about possible tools to
handle geotagged photos and tied them with logs. Though neither The
Bad Cop or DarrylW4 knew of a solution, DarrylW4 mentioned the
GeoJournal Mac app as the closest thing to meet
xpunkx's desire. Next we heard from Ed2Ed by email about the "Cat Friends -
Lucky" (TB4999F) traveler which was showing up in the wrong
cache. Lastly we had a voicemail from JerseyEric about cross-listing caches.
During this show we also drew the winners of the Happy Caching Days Giveaway. Our thanks again to Magellan for their donation of an eXplorist GC, and to Brand 44 Colorado for their donation of an Geomate.jr with Update Kit, Geomate Large Log Cache, and a Geomate Gnome Cache.
