benefits

I was thinking it in my head, but finally an article stated it. There are people asking to be laid off from their jobs, because they stand to make more on unemployment, than when employed, as a result of the extra $600/wk for 4 months, on top of regular unemployment benefits.

New Covid App

Just wanted to share my latest app:

BC Rest Area data available from Ministry of Transport

In the thread titled "Why is it so difficult to create clean POI files": (http://www.poi-factory.com/node/50558) user Doug R requested data for rest areas in BC.

Most of the data on which the map https://www.th.gov.bc.ca/restareas/?zoom=6&loc=-123.230976%2... is based is freely available to the public.

Thanks to those on the front lines

While doctors and hospital and other healthcare workers are obvious to give thanks too, as well as police and firemen.

I thought Zeke and I would say thanks to our sanitation workers and delivery folks.

Coming Back (bobinot)

I didn't leave this site permanently on a occasion download files, but I getting back in as a maintainer but to alot lesser degree. Thank you for your understanding & patience.

Why is it so difficult to create clean POI files

I modify POI files for the way I want to see them. The problem I find is that 80% of the ones I use are from 20% to 50% messed up because of extra spaces, commas, colons, missing data, bad data, brackets, mis-spellings.....
Why is it so hard to get clean files?

Older versions of maps

Hi all,
I have GPSMAP 478 with the Russian 2GB card and have determined that Map 2019.2 is the latest coverage I want. Is there a site where I can download older versions of the maps?

Low Clearances (PDF)

There is a downloadable pdf file for low cleareances for all the states. There was an android app from O'Mecha Online but it doesn't work any more. The file is from the following:
member.coach-net.com No membership required. Gives state routes and interstate and the clearances. Hope this helps.

toilet paper

I found all the articles interesting, first hoarding, then not really, people are home and not somewhere else, need more of it actually, and mills can't simply switch from commercial to private, etc.

CVS Pharmacy

I have just completed the latest update of the file. During the update, I noticed that the website locator also had the locations listed that have a Clinic available. There are over 1050 CVS locations along with Clinic's at some of the Target locations. I decided to list these Clinic locations in this latest update. See Column C

it's a bad century to be a hugger

Seriously, although I am American born, my culture, and my wife's, it I think is what we referred to in HS as the romance languages whatever.

School's out for (spring &) summer .... or the latest COVID-19 victim.

Latest COVID-19 victim, all Pennsylvania schools.

PA Governor Wolf orders all schools closed for the rest of the year.

My wife is a school teacher, teaches strings (orchestra). Very hard to teach music to elementary students via the computer but that's what they have her doing. Fun fun fun.
