    Default Fun!

    I'm with you on this! Some days if it weren't for my DNF's I wouldn't get to log anything - LOL!! Some consider logging a DNF to be "a public display of stupidity" - ugh! I consider it an opportunity to share a laugh if it really is there and to alert the owner just in case it isn't.

    I see it as a very simple matter. No log = no find!

    If there was a muggle issue then the cacher should have come back and completed the find. To say you saw it or touched it is not enough.

    It's the signature in the log that seals the deal.

    Default Public display of stupidity

    I think it's time to defend my "joke" about DNF's as PDOS - Public displays of stupidty. I overheard a converstaion about them at an event and in an effort to rile up the converstion I came up with PDOS. Sorry if I offended anybody.
    Fortunately, we are a very tenacious team and have very few DNF's. I believe we have logged every one of them.
    I take that back, there were a few in town that we made several trips to. Battle Ship, Cad D Ice, Cash cache, and the ones in Coe park and on the waterfront. But we knew we were going back the next day, so before we logged anything we waited a day, or two, or three. On all of those we were pretty sure the cache was there, but we didn't have time to find them.
    Now that more people are going paperless and most PDAs only give the last 5 logs it doesn't make sense to log a DNF on a half hearted search.
    Don't get me started on people logging in/out TBs. You can delete the logs!

    Isn't it odd out of all those, I hid one and was FTF on all the others?

    How do you get the last 5 logs in Cachemate? I only show one. I load my PDA from GSAK, and I know I have the 5 past logs there, but I can't find any option in Cachemate that allows me to change the number of logs imported/shown.

    Default past logs

    click on the actual log date (i e 8/12/05) (or the down arrow) and a menu of about 5 (sometimes more) dates will appear just keep clicking to read the other logs
