    Default PQ's

    Anyone else having trouble getting PQ's today?

    I got all mine OK.
    I'd really rather not cache, but I am helpless in the grip of my compulsion!

    I noticed it this morning when I tried to run the Maine State PQ with the August to end of year dates. It ended up taking over two hours for it to hit my email account. Tonight it seems it's still taking about 30 minutes or so.

    30 minutes would be good. I had 5 set up to run. I got two when I signed on at abut 9am. I looked it over and tried to run the other three manually. Then I just gave up and went caching.

    At about 10pm I got the other three. That's at least 10 hours.

    I got them all fine this morning.

    I got all 10 of my PQs, but platinum members do get first preference.

    The site is probably going through some growing pains. Give it a week or two and they'll add another couple servers and we'll be good until Christmas when all the newbies get GPSrs for they gift..

    Didn't know there was a platinum. What are the perks of that?

    As a platinum member you will also get a different notifications to your cell phone. Everything you need to find a cache in 160 characters, very useful when you don't have internet on your cell phone, like me, or near by to run for FTF. Check screen shot of my cellphone.

    OK, I tried looking around the GC site for information on a platinum membership, but I've come up empty. Am I missing something?

    I have been using something similar to Cano's set up for several years. I recently upgraded to the Lutetium Level of membership and now have the absolute cat's meow.

    Cano is in the dark ages!
