Keeping The Windmill Alive - Your Last Trip? – August 2018

In danger of losing your windmill?

Maybe you can share the last place your GPS took you and if you encountered any problems, or if you used it to seek out special places to go (like Thai Food, ice cream shoppes, etc.).

Anything to keep your windmill alive.

This thread will be closed on the last day of the month and a new one will be opened.

What to do with downloaded .csv files

I've downloaded several .csv POI files that I use in Google Maps. Sometimes if the .csv file has a column D I must delete that column before Google maps will accept the file because column D has special characters or is to long.

So what mapping program do you guys use that support these .csv files?

Intel chips have been marred by another series of security flaws dubbed Foreshadow-NG. Researchers discovered the vulnerabilities, which primarily affect Intel’s Software Guard Extensions (SGX) and the security of virtualized environments.

What Is the Foreshadow Attack?

How many married 50 or more years?

Since we seem to be a senior bunch here at the Factory, I wonder how many of us have been married (to the same person) for at least 50 years? I'll go first. For my wife and I it'll be 51 years the end of October.

Moving Saved File

I currently have a Nuvi 3597 and am considering moving to a DriveSmart 61LMT. Can the "saved" file be moved directly from one to the other or are they in different formats? Any insight would be appreciated.

Wikispaces closing

While reading a recent Extra POI node here on POI a question of updates to the Editor was asked. So I looked up turboccc's page for the POI editor and got the following notice:

It's time for us to say farewell… Regretfully, we've made the tough decision to close Wikispaces. Find out why, and what will happen, here (http://blog.wikispaces.com/)

Potential GPS issue in 2019?

Member dhn over in the GPSReview forum posted this link in relation to a recent firmware update for several TomTom devices. I had not heard of this situation before and it made me wonder if our Garmin devices are vulnerable and if so, will Garmin do anything about it? Also, do cell phones use this timing information, and if so which phones might be vulnerable?
