It's Not About the Numbers Stats is gone looks like Dave is throwing in the towel.

Maybe this would be something that the WGA could take over, or one of the tech guru's here.

Disregard...

I just read this:

Quote:

It was all about the numbers after all…
…as in the number of hours in a day I have for stuff. Unfortunately, not very many of those hours go towards website development.

I was laid off from my job in 2005, and eventually got a temp job at a local company. Unfortunately, there wasn’t a lot to do, but with virtually unfettered internet access and plenty of extra time, I decided to hone my PHP skills and developed a way that would let me take in a GPX file and verify what pages were completed for the Wisconsin DeLorme Challenge cache. after that was up and running, someone made a post in the Groundspeak forums about stats and the game not being about the numbers, and as a joke, registered itsnotaboutthenumbers.com and posted a link proving the point.

Soon after, I had the idea to reuse my DeLorme code to take the GPX file I read and derive some simple stats. The I added more stats. And more stats. The site got the blessing from Groundspeak. More people started using INATN. The servers went down. The site was moved to a dedicated server host, funded by Groundspeak. Things were good.

Then I got my old job back, and between that and a third child, I didn’t have time to develop the site any further, but I did what I could to keep it going. Eventually, new cache types were added. Attributes were added to the GPX format. I patched things up here and there, but someone always managed to come up with a strange case that resisted all attempts to make it work.

I finally made a difficult decision: With no time to give INATN the attention it deserves, and new (and better) stat solutions out there, I’ve decided to close down the site. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who helped support this effort over the past several years, especially the wonderful folks at Groundspeak and everybody who either donated via Paypal or clicked on one of the links. It’s been fun working on this and seeing the varied reactions from stat-hounds and stat-haters alike.

Thanks again, and see you on the trail!

-Dave Krug (aka The Cheeseheads)

I was wondering what happened to the page. I'm very sad to see it go. I was using it to keep track of my found counties.

Is there a site/program that can do a D/T combination grid? I currently use just cachestats but it shows D and T separately, not in combination.

Hi, you must be running an old version of CacheStats. The current version ( 3.0.8 ) can show the D/T grid.

I just logged on to add another state and relized that this is no longer. Crying or Very sad
I enjoyed keeping track of my stats and add the states and countries.
Thanks for the fun and for all your hard work.
Is there any other option out there??

Yes, there are other options out there to maintain your stats.

1. CacheStats

2. http://www.mygeocachingprofile.com/

I am sure there are more
