Welcome, Anonymous Guest!  

Un-Welcomed Registered Guests

Recently the week of Thanks Giving, there were quite a few new account creations, whether they were Robots, or someone being funny, I have locked out the new Account creation function. All existing accounts are not affected by this.

 I have asked if you sign up, you use your Geocaching name and those with special characters, a slight variation that can be figured out is ok based on the guide lines.

 It wasn't too hard to figure out who was doing the account creations, but alas it is not something I can configure the site to handle other than making this a "By Appointment only" registration only website.

Please contact me via my Geocaching profile to have you account created if you so desire one. The Management.

Site Updates coming! General Status update..

Well as with any software come maintenance!, you will be happy to know I am at least doing my backups! Added the Evil workshop to the Calendar. The site needs an upgrade to bring the code up to date. Most modules will be brought forward, some will likely no longer work. The site will still be a place to get information, and the Calendar function is core Zikula.

I also have been playing with Joomla, as an alernative to a CMS. It is quite popular and has more support than Zikula, but will cross that bridge when I get there.

I will also ad back in the Twitter feeds, and back track the locations database to get them all back in there again. So Happy travels, and Happy caching! MR

Server Blow Out

Hi Folks,

MartianRabbit here. Well about a week ago, I was doing some site & server checks and discovered the disk under cachingfrogs.com catristrophically failed. As as you have guessed, The site looks like it reverted.

Well, this was due to me not performing my backups, but, I did find  a baseline restore point to at least start from something way above scatch!!

The site as you see it now was just after the O/S and site upgrades last year at this time. Well, the site needs upgrades again, and will bring it forward from this point. Needless to say, I will be more diligent in making backups.

To at least have gotten back to this point in less than a full week, is pretty darn good for me. That where taking good Admin notes pays off.

So there will be lost accounts and lost content. You can however sign back up, and repost any articles you see fit.

The site may have been down but not Out!!

Geocaching Forum and News Feeds

HO! HO! HO!

 TIME TO SPREAD SOME HOLIDAY CHEER! 

 

We will be meeting in Round Table Pizza for some Holiday Cheer and Pizza. We will have a gift exchange, but the catch is you can't go buy it. You have to take something from around your house and make it into a cache container.

We are working on coming up with some more activities while we are here so feel free to place some input here or send me an email.
I am getting donations from various vendors for a raffle also.
Keep an eye out for updates.

We have the room Tuesday Dec 14, 2010 from 5:30 until 8pm? It is also a fundraiser night for a local boy scout troop.See ya there!

Information Technology: CachingFrogs Site Upgraded!

Well, I did it!  I got the site upgraded! One more thing of the todo list! Had to remove the Gallery as the old module is no longer supported. Will build an outboard Gallery and link to it via the portal.

Fixed a bug in the Shout box, and added a new Calendar.  There are a bunch of other bug fixes too troughout the other modules. The Locations Module work fine but the Security on the module only allows the map to work while you are logged in.

I will be searching for more cool modules to plug into the portal, to make it more fun! Thanks for Visiting!

Cachingfrogs Web Site Migration / Upgrade

Dear F.R.O.G.S. Members,

 It is that time, where I am going to attempt to upgrade and Migrate the www.cachingfrogs.com website to newer more energy efficient equipment to host the site. The site, during the process will go down, and of course there is always the possibility the site could be lost forever due to unforeseen circumstances in the upgrade and migration process.  Some of the modules will be removed, some will be upgraded, and there will be some replacements. Hope to see you on the other side.

This project amongst others that need to be done sooner rather than later plus the enormeous workload at work, are the things that have taken the time away to host the MartianRabbit's Evil Workshop. It is one of those things where life got away from me, too many irons in the fire, and I have to shed load, and with great regret, Geocaching is being shelved for a while.   MartianRabbit
