Adela has been on Geocaching HQ’s marketing team since 2012. This is Adela’s account of her trip.By Adela Bahtijaragic, a.k.a. DellaBellThey say that half the geocaching journey is getting there. This much was true when I traveled to Port Aransas, Texas – home to Texas Challenge XI. Located deep in the heart of Texas, “Port A” was the place to be during the weekend of April 5. Geocachers in the great state of Texas, and beyond, gathered to celebrate what they love – geocaching.Over the course of 11 years, the challenge has grown into a fun-filled weekend comprised of activities for people who wish to compete in the contest or those simply looking to socialize and geocache around town. With plenty to see and do, I was lucky enough to have had my very own tour guide for the day. I got to hang out with the 2011 – 2013 Texas Geocaching Association (TXGA) President, De (of Team-DnD), who went above and beyond to make this an unforgettable day for me.Human log bookDe and I spent the day exploring the city, the beach, and local geocaches. She introduced me to members of the TXGA, seasoned and new geocachers, and a number of geocachers who attended from places as far away as Australia (firesafe). Of course, I took part in some of the creative Mega-Event challenges, including a joust with a knight from Monty Python’s Holy Grail.Adela and knight square offA bonfire gathering at the beach (GC454VH), which included a jalapeno eating contest, potluck, and limbo was the perfect way to end a busy day. We quickly figured out that the lack of a logbook was no problem. Thanks to Travis (SKnight579) and his Hawaiian shirt, turned geocaching “logbook,” we had a conversation piece and possibly even a new tradition for future after-challenge-events.I felt welcome and a part of a community I had never celebrated with before. The weekend of April 5 was only my very first trip to Texas, but also my very first Mega-Event. I could not have asked for a better group of people to embrace geocaching with. Their hospitality and love for geocaching goes beyond everything I expected.Texas Challenge XI Group Photolast_img read more


520 Bellevue TB hotel – Geocache of the Week

first_imgThere are two things that are beloved by many geocachers: gadget caches and trackable hotels. So what’s even better? A gadget cache that’s also a trackable hotel! If you are a connoisseur of well-designed caches then our Geocache of the Week is a great fit for you. Located next to a strip mall in Bellevue, Washington, 520 Bellevue TB hotel shows how urban geocaches can be a lot more than lamp post caches and guardrail nanos. The cache owner Bounce,bounce is known in the local community for his creative trackable hotels. The cache is located in an unused loading bay. When you approach the cache you might hesitate for a second since it looks much like an electronic installment that’s part of the dock. But when you point your gaze upwards a warning sign reassures you that you’re in the right location.The cache page tells you that you need one of Bellevue’s zip codes (which are five digits) to open the cache, but the lock that stands between you and the logbook only has 4 digits. So your first mission is to identify where to use the code and then find the right one.Once you open the cache you might get sidetracked by the lights and switches. It’s fine to play with them but the cache owner requests that you leave everything the way you found it before you leave. Opening the second door gets you to the logbook and well organized trackable hotel.If you’re in the area and need a place for your travel-weary trackables, check them into this hotel for some well-deserved rest before the next geocacher takes them to their next destination.Continue to explore some of the most amazing geocaches around the world.Check out all of the Geocaches of the Week on the Geocaching blog.

Password Sync Feature Added to Google Chrome

first_img A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Tags:#Browsers#Google#news#web After updating from the Beta release to the Dev build on a second machine, we were then able to configure password synchronization from the settings on the additional device. To set it up, Chrome prompted for the passphrase we had just created. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Good news for Google Chrome users – the long-anticipated password syncing functionality has just popped up in the Developer version of the Google Chrome Web browser, which means similar support for users of the beta and stable versions of Chrome is likely to be just around the corner.We were able to test the new syncing functionality this morning between multiple computers and encountered no errors or obstacles. Password syncing appears to be a go!Spotted Earlier this Year in Settings, but Was FlakyAlthough support for password syncing was spotted earlier this year in Chrome’s settings by the folks at Download Squad, the implementation was flaky and wasn’t working for all users, they reported. This latest update may hopefully deliver more stability to the feature. According to the release notes for the Dev Channel build of the Chrome browser, linked to yesterday by the official Chrome Releases blog, a number of issues relating to password synchronization have now been addressed.Message Appears on New Tab PageIn our case, we saw the badge indicating an update was available for Google Chrome. After performing the update and relaunching the browser, we noticed a note at the bottom of the New Tab page in Chrome indicating the feature. It read: “New! Google Chrome can now sync your passwords.” Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… sarah perez Clicking the link to enable the feature brought up a “Set up Sync” box where you must fill in your Google Account password. A second screen then appeared, offering you the option to encrypt your password data using either your Google Account password, or, for added security, a special “sync passphrase” – that is, a phrase or sentence that’s harder to guess. No Official Mention?Despite the feature’s appearance, there’s no official mention of password sync being added in the blog post on the Google Chrome Releases website. However, the bug fixes mentioned above do show there’s a lot of work going into polishing this new addition.It’s also interesting that the Google Chrome Dev channel is primarily focused on stability improvements right now, a trend which typically indicates that Chrome 9 (the current beta) is probably about to go stable while Chrome 10 (the current Dev build) is about to move into the beta spot. At this point, the beta testers would then have access to the password sync feature, too.But given that Google hasn’t made an official announcement about the launch of password syncing, it’s unclear whether or not the feature was supposed to debut just yet, Dev version or otherwise. Will it survive the next Dev build update? Or is this just another accidental sighting, like the one that popped up in October, but was not truly functional? Stay tuned.In the meantime, for those of you running the Dev build of Chrome, you can try out the new functionality now. Mac and Windows builds are supported. We have not tested on Linux.
