Gday Everyone,

I signed up for this forum but my first post didnít go through....Confused

Anyway, I hope you like the plugin Smile
Its now got TB support (TB#### and the TB tracking number), apparently it did for a while but Jeff didnít tell me about it Razz

For the newest cache in your state type in "new: 24", I am going to see if we can change it to state letters like "new: MN"

If you have any problems with the plugin post on here or give me a yell via email.

Cheers Very Happy,

I said:

no reason to want more.


And realized it wasn't the brightest thing to say soon after.

Being a little more open-minded today, I got the Mozilla FF browser and the plugins. I'm still getting used to it.
Nice to see the how the cache pages differ from one browser to the other.

I have been using Mozilla FF on the computer at work for awhile now. (they switched from I.E. because all of the computers kept getting virus's. Since the switch, not a single problem.

I have had alot of recent problems with virus's on my old computer (I was using I.Explorer)...and many hours have been wasted straightening things out. I finally decided to upgrade to a new computer and I set it up to run on Mozilla FF.

Just set up the plug in on the toolbar......I like it!

Hopefully things should be safer now that I am using Windows XP (I noticed it has some built in firewall protection that Windows 2000 NT did not) Very Happy

I was playing around with the quick search and found if you type in: new:24
it will tell you the newest caches in Minnesota.

I found something interesting when I found Wisconsin.... new:50

Check out the "geocaching workshops" that the Wisconsin Parks are hosting.

It's great to see more and more parks becoming "more open to geocaching"

Allright, I gave up on IE about the time we upgraded to broadband in October, been using Netscape since then. Friday night, Scuba announced that our computer had crashed - it crashed bad! Had to reload XP, which, of course, wiped the hard drive. Anyway, figured I'd try firefox - sweet!! Just figured out how to use the plugins, I am hooked! Thanks for the heads up, Mr. Sleaze...
