I continue to use the old "my cache" page.

About every third time I try to access it, it loads the travel bugs, watch list, my hidden caches title, then this:


Microsoft OLE DB Provider for SQL Server error '80040e31'

Timeout expired

/my/default.asp, line 358

It happens at home on dial-up, and at work, on the network.

arrrgghhhh

They no longer support the "old /my".

Really? I think the new "My Page" is a vast improvement over the old. I would think anyone with a lot of tbug finds, in particular, would appreciate the new.

Not for what I want. I want a list of all my caches, in the order they were placed, with archived, unapproved, and unsubmitted ones all included.

I have that with the "old" page. I don't have anything close to that with the "new" page.

There's too much crap on it that I don't care about.

I used and prefered the old/my cache page for a long while, until one day the link to it was gone and/or I was just too stupid to find it anymore.

At that point, I just wrote a private, text only, web page that has links to the stuff I use alot - primarily "find newest", and "find nearest, filter finds". But usually I only ever go two pages deep on those, unless I am logging finds. Mostly I don't use the site at all unless I am logging. I just bring the data into a local database every night with PQs and screen scraping.

It is possible to make what KB wants using my tools. But it would be a lot easier to do it on-site. However, the amount of work necessary to do it off-site vs. the amount of work necessary to convince Jeremy to do it on-site are about equal. Smile

Except, there is no way I could get unsubmitted caches, except by hacking into KB's computer.

Subject: old "my cache" page


Nate,

I really don't care for the new "my cache" page.

Is there a way to access a list of all my caches (including archived, unsubmitted, unapproved) with links to each one. This "old" page was the most useful tool available for me to update/monitor my caches.

I want them all on one page, in order that they were placed, not by recently found. I could care less about that.

Any help would be appreciated.

Ian

No problem. Click on the graphical link on your My Cache Page that lists your stats in brief. It's at the top right center of the page (the little rectangular box). That will take you to your old My Cache Page.

Regards,

Nate

I don't think so. Does this work for anybody else?
