Here is another cool program for all who like stats.

That program looks interesting, and I have tried to install that program before, but during the install process I get I message that I need to install .NET framework version 1.1.4322. I have no idea what that is and I am a little reluctant to install it on my computer.

Slow, a memory hog, free (as in beer, not speech), and becoming ubiquitous in the Windows world. Fortunately, it only affects programs that use it, not everything on your system - So, you can install it and if you hate it, just don't run any programs that depend on it.

You can safely install it. Then, install the service pack for it!!! Do not even think about skipping that step. Then I suggest also installing .NET 2, which for any program that will use that instead, performs quite a lot better than 1.1.

This is what the program did for my cache stats, pretty cool I thought. It will do much more but this just gives you an idea of the basics that it will accomplish.

Thanks ribnag, I got everything installed ok.
Wow, now I can easily generate all kinds of useless personal stats, pretty interesting.
Here are my stats:

LOL!

We planned on getting Delaware when we went "south" on vacation in June/July, and planned on grabbing a quick cache at a service area on our way back. But we missed one, and then we were out of Delaware! Since it was 4th of July weekend, and the traffic was WICKED, we didn't want to go back. And by the time we got through New York into Connecticut, we just wanted to get HOME! (That was a 14-hour drive that day - Maryland to Maine) LOL!

We'll get Connecticut in the next couple of months - plans are shaping up for our next 3/4-day caching trip...

Looks like a cool program, although I bet most if not all of those features could be achieved with a GSAK macro. I was able to make up a detailed summary (http://users.adelphia.net/%7E4jacksons/geocaching.htm) on my website without too much work. I'll give the summary page a shot and see what I come up with. The only problem is, if you have multiple finds on the day you hit a 100 mark, how does it know which cache is the right one?

I think TAT's post is missing a closing tag on his table :eek:

Oops, I see it now... it just counts them, doesn't provide the link to the actual cache. :o

Ahhh, much better!! I played around with the GSAK macros some more and have the beginnings of a Stats page (http://users.adelphia.net/%7E4jacksons/geostats.htm). I'll work on it some more tonight! :)

True GSAK will do so much but with the ease of the Logic Weave software all I do is generate MY ALL Finds PQ and drag the file into the software and wa la everything is done for me.

It's pretty much the same here, although I don't have to wait for the MAFPQ since I keep my GSAK up-to-date with my finds. I have pretty much finished the macro, and added it to the GSAK toolbar, so now I can update my stats page (http://users.adelphia.net/%7E4jacksons/geostats.htm) with just one click! It covers most of the statistics of CacheStats, plus the USA image. I can customize the milestones to any increment (25, 50, 100, etc). I also added a section where you can exclude states from the list that you didn't actually visit, for the old locationless (reverse) caches.

The macro is attached if anyone wants to take it and convert it for their own use. It has a few lines that add in the other parts of my web page, but those can easily be removed. If you'd like me to customize the macro for you with some more statistics, let me know and I'll try to help out! :)

I thought, according to the user agreement, we were not supposed to post in foreign languages? :rolleyes:

No, no... "Sheesh!" is purely American! LOL!
