I'm sure this has been discussed before. Can someone supply a link for an easy way to determine which counties or map pages you have found in?

Thanks!

Cachew and Wicket

For county finds, try www.itsnotaboutthenumbers.com

For Delorme finds, try Delorme Calculator .

For both you will need to generate a "My Finds" pocket query from the GC.com website.

Wow - thanks. It's not about the numbers? There are sure a lot of different numbers to look at.

Assuming you have GSAK, there is also a macro which will determine what county a cache is in (before you find it or after). It is called "counties.txt". I am working on a similar one for Delorme pages, but reading those little coordinate numbers on the book pages is giving me a headache. Anybody have a list of the coordinates for Delorme pages so I don't have to get new glasses?

I just tried this for the County link. I can not get the files to load correctly. I am not unzipping the file, I have saved it and then opened it with the browse button. Then when I try to upload I keep getting error message. I am not computer literate so that may be the biggest problem.
Everything worked for the Delorme pages before but I did not try to load this file there because it has nothing to add.

If you mean the second one, this is just a text file of a macro. You have to save it and then use GSAK to run it. Otherwise it will just open the text file.

If you mean the www.itsnotaboutthenumbers.com web site, you will need to provide some more info.

We don't use GSAK, and I was trying to load up the counties on itsnotaboutthenumbers.com web site. When I got my que from GC it did not come in a zip file, or at least not with the XXXXXX.zip name. It showed up with a XXXXXX.zm9. Like I posted earlier I am computer stupid so I may be the problem.

You are using a program called ZoneAlarm Mailsafe. (How do I know this? I could tell you but then you would be indebted to me for life!) You have your Mailsafe set to "quarantine" zip files (and probably numerous other file types) so that you don't accidentally execute them. If you frequent "questionable" websites which scavenge your email address and send it to evil doers, this is probably a good idea. If you just click on anything people send you without understanding first what it is, this is CERTAINLY a good idea. Mailsafe "quarantines" the files by changing the extension to ZM9 from zip in the incoming emails. It makes no other changes to the file, so you can just change it back to use it.

What you need to do when you receive your pocket query is right click the attachment, select save attachment, pick a directory where you can find it, change the extension to .zip, and save it. Note that you MUST NOT change the numerical portion of the name. (This is a requirement of the website.) Now go to itsnotaboutthenumbers and upload it.

IF you want to tinker with your Zonealarm so that Zip files don't get quarantined (not a dangerous choice, as zip files require multiple clicks to do any damage), here is some additional info from one of my sources.

In ZoneAlarm:
- To Enable MailSafe : Go to Email Protection -> Main and click ON.
- To Disable MailSafe : Go to Email Protection -> Main and click OFF.
- To select the types of attachments you would like ZoneAlarm to quarantine, Go to Email Protection -> Attachments. You can add a new attachment type here. You can also change the current setting for a type already listed by clicking in the Quarantine column, and select either Quarantine or Allow.

Note that if you are using a work computer, these options might be locked.

I have not tried it yet but your knowledge scares me. Laughing

I will let you know how it works out.

O.K. Team Deejay I owe you a drink. I just got done changing the file to zip and it worked. This is cool. Now to load GSAK and figure that out. Remember I am computer stupid.

Thanks for the help.

Sure now that I look at it I had one extra county listed on the WGA county cached in page Sad . Well it pays to be accurate I guess. Rolling Eyes
