Happy Veterans Day

Just wanted to wish all the veterans and families of veterans a Happy Veterans Day. Without our veterans and the support of their families Poi-Factory might have been a totally different website.

A bumber Sticker Quote for POI FACTORY..

I got a bumper sticker layout, and even someone to print them for us .. I will also make the layout available to anyone for free.

What I need from you is a logo.. I have changed it so many times that I would like to see what other ideas would be. I want to hear it from other people here. I am struggling what message to tell people that read the Bumper Sticker

has the apple fallen off the tree?

In the last two days the stock market has gone south, but has anyone noticed the drop in Apple stock that started soon after the mini iPad was released?

I need advice sell/hold/buy?

Membership Types

Just joined up, and am already a little confused about how this works exactly. Specifically, is posting to the forums absolutely required to be able to download the poi files and install them to my TND 720, or can I bypass that by becoming a paid subscriber? Obviously I'd prefer the latter ~ i.e. support the site and remove the posting requirement. Anyone care to respond? Thanks in advance.

This week we are recognizing jim407!

We picked Jim407 this week because makes a point to reach out to other users in friendly discussions, willingly shared his experience in surviving hurricanes both before and after Sandy hit and readily admitted he underestimated how familiar many of the members of our community are with the work of Mr. Torvalds. razz

How do you post Icon files on this site?

When I bought my TomTom Start 55TM and started frequenting this web site I downloaded a bunch of POI files and added them to my GPS.

There are lots of very good icons for the files I downloaded but I thought I could improve on them or make different icons that were sharper.

Black Friday / Cyber Monday - 2012

Thanksgiving is on the radar now, and I've started thinking about shopping for some holiday deals. So, I figure it's about time to start up the yearly thread for Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

Any great deals you find interesting are fair game. It's okay to go beyond GPS and to chat about items you hope to find. (This year, I'm looking to snag deals on a ~40" TV and a garage door opener smile )

Not POI related - Linux Opinion

Nothing to do with POIs here. Since winter is coming I was looking for an indoor project to keep me busy (when not shoveling snow). I thought I would experiment with learning Linux. From a little searching yesterday it looks like Fedora or Ubuntu are popular versions. I will be installing it on a home desktop computer as a dual boot and I'm not worried about any server applications.

Change your clocks - change your bateries

It's that time of the year again... back to Standard Time... so - sometime today, while thinking about changing clocks before bed - take the time to change the batteries in any electronic gadget you rely on to monitor your - or your family's health and protect safety... things like Fire & CO detectors... glucose meters and those kinds of things.

Enjoy the "extra hour" of sleep...
