Ask users to buy him a hiptop when amazon.com is selling them for $29.95.

To be fair he is working so hard on breaking the website (profiles being the most recent) he doesn't have time to go geocaching or to surf amazon.com.

My hiptop should be here tomorrow. I can now use that to bitch too!

Thread is here.

http://forums.groundspeak.com/GC/index.php?showtopic=27779

As a result he fixed most of the basic pages to work. The problem there was never the hiptop, it was his site. There are still portions of the site he has neglected to fix - and I'm sure some browsers probably barf on it.

Also, enjoy seeing s4xton a) Not really know exactly what he's talking about and b) Kiss Jeremy's butt to get it fixed.

I think 13) Because too many people take off a holiday and go caching is the reason the server has problems again...

I am sitting in a n internet cafe in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico at 9:30 in the morning trying to be a good cacher and logging my bug drops here in Mexico. Can I get into geocaching .com? no chance. Server too busy for the last half hour. What a pain in the butt.

I decided it would be a good idea to not have enough disk space so people can't upload photos of their drunken cache excursions!

Code:
[Server Error in '/' Application.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

There is not enough space on the disk.
Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.

Exception Details: System.IO.IOException: There is not enough space on the disk.

Source Error:

An unhandled exception was generated during the execution of the current web request. Information regarding the origin and location of the exception can be identified using the exception stack trace below. 

Stack Trace:

When a larger company is looking for someone to fill a position, they look internally for talent. Since we're an itty bitty company, why not look within the geocaching community for talent?

You need to be a web developer experienced in asp.net, SQL and vb.net, and not just book smarts. You're basically working with me to eventually take over the feature enhancements of geocaching.com. I'm getting to the point where 1] I need backup and 2] I need help. Well, I always needed help but I think I may actually be able to pay someone to help me now.

We're in Seattle and there are no moving expenses, so you're on your own. I'm going to be extremely picky so if you don't think you can do the job, don't apply. Obviously someone passionate about geocaching should apply, but you also have to be comfortable enough to maintain a highly visible and highly trafficked web site. In Dot net. And no, I'm not considering porting the site to PHP and MySql, so don't ask.

Send your resume and salary requirements to jobs @ groundspeak.com. I'll see if I get some responses here in the forums, and if it's bone dry I'll extend my search to the more traditional channels.

I just don't understand why he wouldn't use something that has been shown to be far superior and less hardware intensive...

It's very simple. He's based out of Seattle, and obviously has some ins with Microsoft.

Well, not everyone in Cupertino uses Mac OS X, and not everyone in Finland uses Linux....

He's just going with what he feels comfortable with. Pretty funny how many people have confronted him about this subject too - where he has to even mention it in the job posting.
