The Bad Cop, and
DarrylW4 joined up for the one-hundred seventy-fourth edition
of the GeoGearHeads. The show kicked of with extensive discussion
about the Challenge
Cache Submissions Moratorium.
Geocaching.com is looking for input through May 12th from the
Geocaching community which will inform a survey coming out later,
which will in turn influence the future of Challenge Caches on
Nighthawk700 tipped us off about a change in the Geocaching.com
Live API as posted to the CacheSense
GSAK forums. As of May 18th access tokens expire every six days
rather than lasting till revoked (authorizations are managed
through the "Authorizations"
tab from the "Account Settings"). Then lafitefl shared
more about Kayak caching, along with
TheWoodenRadio and his planning for "Geo-Boat #1" (GC54CB4). On mass transit caching
we heard from
Oh Beep! about the "Sidetracked" series of
Ulf also mentioned "24"
(GC1AGHB) – a real time
puzzle website paired with mass transit to create an unknown cache
with more than a thousand favorite points. The
Engadget article about lithium-ion batteries under a microscope
was next. Finally the changes
to the Munzee Code of Conduct were submitted by brilang.
