Just found out something interesting...LORAN is coming back! LORAN was the precursor to GPS and was developed and used during WWII. It seems that the English have a Plan B for their ships at sea in case GPS ever goes completely out...eLORAN.

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.
Happy Halloween to all.
Has anyone figured out a way to sort the results of a POI Factory search?
Search results aren’t listed alphabetically or by date. What algorithms are used to determine the order?
I’m sure this question has been asked before but when searching the topic, the answer (if any) is buried in 40 to 100+ pages of results depending on how I word the search.

I have not been on for a while due to a stroke that affects me right side - wheel chair and walker but no right hand for a while. I wont be driving me wife will but I set up my garmin an the right side so I can navigate. I wont be able to update my files. But I am still a POI Factory Member!
I've uploaded a poi to poi factory, I can find it if I'm logged in, but others cant find it, it doesn't show up on my list of maintained files and it doesn't come up in a search. What am I/did I do wrong? It also doesn't come up when another member who is logged on searches.
On another thread, I posted my Favorite Files:
and thought this may be an interesting thread for folks willing to share their Favorites (sort of along the lines of the What's Your Avatar? thread).
Here is the latest from thenewspaper.com.
The title and headline of the article are
