This is the place to talk about things that are not GPS related.
This thread will be closed on Monday and a new one will be opened.
This thread should be closed when the official one opens up, but starting an "unofficial" one has been a thought of mine for a while.
When I post on the forum, I have no way of knowing when or if someone has replied. On other forums, I can opt to receive an email notification when a reply has been posted.
Is there a way of signing up for reply notifications on POI?
Just a note regarding my responses/inputs to the files that I maintain. I have had to evacuate my home in Florida and don't know when I will be able to return. I just hope that our home will not be damaged, but with the power of this storm, that maybe too much to ask.
I will respond as quickly as I can.
This week we’re recognizing, Eaglesft!
Still a relative newcomer having been a part of the factory for a little over 2 years, Eaglesft has created 95 new POI files!
He joined in May 2014 and contributed his first file the following September. He’s uploaded an average of 2 files and/or bmp’s a week since then.
I was visiting a friend of mine over the past couple of days. They told me their system hadn't done any updates in a while. I took a look at their update settings and it indicated
it would check for updtes but let me choose whether to download and install them
When I inspected the update transaction log it revealed no updates had been applied to the system since Feb, 9, 2016.

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.
I thought this deserved a topic of it's own.
Happy anniversary POI Factory and many thanks to all those who have contributed to make it the success it has been.
Here's to another 10 years of support for the GPS community!

iOS 10 Vulnerability Makes Bruteforcing Backup Passwords Up To 2,500 Times Faster (Updated)

The topic here about Zadmi got me thinking. In 1999, I was using a hockey puck receiver with Rand McNally mapping software on a laptop to navigate. I was driving an 18 wheeler. The maps were none to detailed, and actual addresses were hard to locate. It would get you in the general area. Sometimes it would take you exactly where you want to go.
zadmi, happy anniversary. You're the Factory's longest sitting member - user-id #1. Congratulations for being a member for 10 years and 21 minutes. Way to go.
Zadmi is an administrative account that was created before the web site was publicly accessible. POI Factory's public anniversary is September 29th.
This week we’re recognizing, Macleadv!
Macleadv has been a member of POI Factory for over four years.
Lately he’s been updating his petrol/gas POI files for mostly Canada and recently he helped Oldboy with some new MacEwen locations in Ontario.
Thanks for your file maintenance work, Macleadv!
