    I saw this posted somewhere, maybe facebook. IIRC It's not a cache but supposedly a place where artists can share their photos - something of that sort.

    I don't think it would ever knowingly be allowed as a cache with the guidelines as they are now.


    EDIT: I found a link to the story: Why Is There a USB Drive Sticking Out of This Wall?

    Maybe this is an "urban myth"?

    OMG! that is so cool.
    I have no enemies, but I'm intensely disliked by my friends.

    How would you know the other side of that USB connector isn't wired into the main electrical supply? I know I am a cynic, but I would not trust plugging into something like that.

    It's too bad, it is a neat idea and would be fun if there were not so many people out there that get their jollies out of ruining other people's fun.

    Default ruining fun

    speaking of which...
    I tried logging into this(GeocachingMaine) site three times this evening and somehow ended up on a "Cache Maine" site which is not what I was looking for. Is this some sort of "hack"?

    No - you must have been using dot com instead of dot org. The dot com site is owned by Cache Maine and has been for a long time. They are good Maine Cachers and some of the original members here.

    there is a wireless USB kit used for development of USB devices where you need to protect your computer from your USB device in case something goes wrong. Great for situations like this.
