Title: Red Nose Day
Post by: Griff Grof on March 15, 2013, 05:42:21 pm
Who else is watching it tonight??

I don't think they've done a very good job advertising it this year, does anyone else agree? Half of the people don't even know that it's today  :o

I doubt very much I will catch much of it. At work still at present.

Well, I have watched a little here and there this evening. I have just seen Ricky Gervais being.. Ricky Gervais. I can take him in small doses, and that was just enough :D

I am absolutely crackered after this week at work. I do not think I will be up to much this weekend. Any caching will probably wait until Monday when we head up to the skittles. I bid you all g'night, and however funny the red nose TV night may now become, I will probably fall asleep to my Empire Strike Back DVD.

We didn't have a clue what had happen or was happening in the World while there ;D

Wasn't till we were at the airport in Tenerife that we found out a new Pope has been elected :o


I did want the Internet for Geocaching and info on the Cable car but I had prepare for no Internet just in case and glad I had done :D

The tablet, a 10.1" Sanei N10 3G GPS with Android 4.0.4 was very handy as I had a good map of the island which I had calibrated so could use it to navigate round the island while we were out in the car and I could write up logs of found caches, so it was very quick to log caches when I got home, which I have already done ;D I also uploaded photos off my camera onto the tablet to review the pictures and Jill and my Mum could also look what I had been up to if I had been out caching and they had stayed at the villa ;D

Didn't bother with RND at all this year, bit hard to onyour own, and I had other things to do Friday night.

Walktall, if you have Android, you knowyou could have installed one of the free geocaching apps from play store like C:Geo and save all the caches on the island back in UK and take it with you, withot the worry of no internet.. :S

Great!  ;D

But is it the tablet of your dreams? Will you keep it?  ??? :o

Not by a long way but was very much cheaper than an iPad but I bet comparable :D

Well I paid for it, so ::)

I've looked at the specifications and yes, it is comparable indeed  ;D Doesn't look like a bad piece of kit  :)

Screen resolution isn't as good but that seems the only minus point against the ipad. But there are several plus points, makes me think I should have waited before buying.

It would be interesting to compare, as I've never 'played' with another other tablet :)

I will bring mine tomorrow night and you can play all you like

Will be interesting to see how the screen on the newer model compares to mine too, TJ (I have an iPad 2, bought before the Retina one existed  :o )

But yes, yours looks like it has some plus points, particularly the mapping/GPS one. If you have it tomorrow, would be nice to briefly see what it's like... I was hoping to use mine for that, but with no 3G (an extra 100 for a 3G model!!!) it wasn't going to work :-\
