Keeping The Windmill Alive - Your Last Trip? – January 2015

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.

A lot of topics have been discussed at POI Factory, and someone may have already answered your question smile

Should Consumer Use of Drones be Regulated or Banned in the U.S.?

As a hobbyist, I think these little gadgets are fun to play with but they are getting a lot of bad press lately.

There are already regulations in place that control the use of drones in certain areas but no practical way to enforce them.

File Updates (My Favorite Files)

Wow! Jan 22 sure was a day during which lot's of GPX & CSV files were updated.

Thanks.

Very cool site

Just happened upon the site by accident when I was doing some research. Just wanted to let the people in charge know I thought it was awesome.

The planned addition of a “Leap Second” this June may disrupt the Internet and satellite navigation systems.

Warning: Serious tech content.

Interesting read for those who follow the aspects of global time.

New user - question (delete existing files in the GPS folder?)

Just signed up here and want to be sure I have this right -- when I download the latest safety/cam file(s)do I need to delete the existing files in the GPS folder or can I just leave those in?

Thanks

RE: No COW This Week

Hmm, no COW this week. Does that make me a COY COW?

No COW This Week

We thought it would be nice to let Box Car have a full week of recognition as this year’s COY.

We’ll resume COW recognition's next Monday!
