I know there are sites where a person can upload one of the QR codes and decode it, but I'm having a dickens of a time finding any. Everything I've found requires you to put it into your non-smart phone. Since that's a tech thing, I don't want to touch it. Thanks!

This sounds way worse than the jelly beans I ate this weekend.

Wow - we're getting way off topic, but for the record - I think the moldy cheese takes the award for worst flavor ever (very accurate but horrible).

I'm assuming this is for a puzzle cache? If so, feel free to post the GC no (or PM it to me) and I'll take a look.

Here's what I discovered through trial and error. Using the xzing site, I clicked on the QR and saved it. There is an option to find the file on your machine and upload it to xzing, and doing that, it worked just fine.

The "decode one you find with its url" apparently doesn't work with the amount of stuff on a normal cache listing. I've used the barcode site for....barcodes. Didn't know it would work with these, too. Good to know. Thanks!

It works if you give it just the URL of the image, but will fail if you give it the URL of the page. In IE, you can right click on the image, select "Properties", and then copy the entire Address / URL for the image to paste into url field.
