Is everyone away on vacation? This place is dead.

Hello?
Is anyone there?
Is this thing on?

OUTSTANDING

This for all the POI Factory Noobs.

Check out "My Favorite Files" in the bullet list under your name in the column to the right...

I just "discovered" that not only are the specific files you download tracked for you here...

Making it easy to find them again...

The site even annotates your list if the file has been updated since your last download.

The Tools here rock.

File containing all Exxon, Esso, Mobil locations in the US and Canada

on the exxonmobil.com website. Go to Products and Services. Select find a US or Canada service station. Select download to GPS. You can pick Garmin, Tom Tom or Magellan files. The download file contains all stores in the US and Canada. The file is updated daily. I've loaded it on my Garmin via POI Loader and it works great.

Ya I got you guys this week, how many of you have been trying to post but can't find the reply button?

Keep your virus protection up to date

Keep your virus protection and other computer firewall's etc. up to date. I had mine up to date and I was still the unhappy receiver of a RootKit (virus) that I was unable to get rid of. I actually went out and bought a new SSD drive to install XP onto. I do not know how I got my lucky hands on this rootkit but, from what I hear there has been ALLOT of it going around.

Signiture Lines

I am starting this thread to hold some off topic comments that were included in another thread.

The purpose of this thread is to discuss how the signature line should be used. This is not to be turned into a political debate.

I usually enjoy reading peoples signatures. They give each user a chance to show a bit of their personality.

A radical idea for traffic safety?

Invariably, the red light and speed camera discussions bring out the legalists who insist that everyone should just obey the regulations even if that means more government control under the constant eye of law enforcement or their camera proxy.

Refurbished Electronics: Debunking the Misconception

Why pay full price for a GPSr if you can find one refurbished?

Refurbished electronics can be the difference between saving money and draining your savings. If you have not read our articles on used electronics and reconditioned electronics we strongly recommend that you check them out after you have read this article.

If your into remote control models. lets create a POI for flying Clubs and Strips

If your into remote control models and either have a RC or have a fantasy wish list show what you have.

Mine is a wish list SR71 Black bird with twin jet engines, and of course mine would have a modified camera bay.

Check out this flight, it's awesome!

This week we are recognizing A_user.

This week you helped update some of Perrdoms projects so that he would not feel overwhelmed when he returns. You are a great man and a loving friend. It is important for us to take care of one another in this community. Even if we don't meet face to face we are still a family.

G3 geomagnetic storm in progress

We've had the first big storm in a long time.. It's classed as a G3.

The reason we should care is that there is the possibility of GPS accuracy being greatly degraded during the solar event. If you've experienced an unusual loss of accuracy today, then this might be the reason.

Got aTicket for Registration Plate Cover

As I mentioned in the Topic, I got a ticket for $65 yesterday.

The car was PARKED.

I think it's ridiculous because it's not a smoke color, it's a clear see-through plastic.

It's one like this on my rear plate http://tinyurl.com/yfxqkds

Any ideas? Pay the $65 or fight back?

Thanks.
