Geocaching Tech


Well I must say that was pretty good. I was mucking about with the site and found an old perl script that built a logo for putting stats on. It didn’t work. I got an error 500 internal server error. I started to put in a ticket at a small orange and I see a chat button – so I click on it. A tech help person comes on line and takes a look at the script and makes some suggestions and I ask him if all the libs are installed and he says wait a minute and reinstalls the perl modules and binary file and within 20 minutes the script is working again. It is something I built a long time ago to make a little logo for stats for for Isonzo Karst.

If anyone is interested I can make the image more generic so others could use it… I had forgotten all about this script. I would say that asmallorange did a great job.



any update on this???

Been doing some of the back end not so glamorous work of geocaching reviewing and I am attempting to automate the disabled part. If a cache falls off the back end it needs to be found and archived. I am putting together macros for GSAK to help automate this for myself and hopefully others.
