Looking forward to tomorrow, cake and popcorn made.
Shame about the weather - we had hoped to do Grif Grofs Westcote Wander series, but have decided the ground will probably be too wet, so will have to put it of for another day.
Walk Tall do you need more help to set things out? We could aim to get there for 4.30 if yes. Jenny :).

Hi All

So so sorry I didn't reply to all your responses yesterday, but every time I pressed the 'reply' button it told me the web page was unavailable - so frustrating - the computer came very close to being thrown out of the window! Today I switched on and at the second attempt it worked fine - I am having this problem with lots of sites that I regularly use - couldn't access bank account/Amazon or Geocaching.com yesterday at all.

Walktall - apologies I meant to write Geocaching.com - when I wrote the original post I knew it looked wrong, but couldn't figure out what I had done wrong - think they call it a senior moment + extreme frustration at the computer - B&R realised I had written the wrong thing!  :-[.

I am so frustrated with the whole of Windows 10 I am going to take the computer to my son to have it uninstalled, so many things aren't working correctly its driving me totally insane. So a warning to people who want to accept Windows 10 onto their computers there are several people we have talked to since our problems that have had so many gliches with it so be prepared. Probably not a problem if you are computer savvy, but non-computer people like me could be in for lots of trouble! So sorry for my moaning, just so frustrated with it all - will try to be happier next time I post  ;). Thanks all for your advice Jenny.

Hi All

Tried loading geocaches on my GPS yesterday, with no success, and then later in the day we were unable to open Geocash.com at all - on 2 computers and 1 smart phone. We still can't open it this morning - is this a general problem ie affecting all, or a local problem for us? Just to add to the equation we loaded the new Windows 10 onto our computers a few days back - wonder if this is affecting it? Thanks for any input/advice Jenny  :( [ Mrs Hogshunters]

Thanks B&R - That must be the problem - expect we aren't getting the notifications and they aren't going into Spam either!
We'll get our son to have a look at the settings on the computers [ he's got an IT degree  ::) - hence we leave computer type problems for him to sort out!]

Thanks once again for your help - we'll get there one day! Jenny  :)

Thanks for the replies [ sorry for being so dumb]

B&R - yes they are our TB's we want to track. We have put some TB's out in Canada last year and initially we got notification when they moved on but now we no longer hear about them - so periodically I do a  'find trackable' to find out what is happening to them. This was why we wanted to put these new ones on a watch list [ one especially as it was a birthday present to my husband - TB79JJD - Pitts Special]

Griff Grof - we have never got the message that you have on the example page you sent me  'watch this trackable item' so I must have been on the wrong page Doh! I'll have another go today.
Thanks for all your help Jenny  :)

Oh - I'm probably doing it wrong!  :-[

I have put some TB's on the list that we placed in Canada last year - but the name of the cache they are in came up - not the TB - is that right?

Could you clarify what you mean by the trackable page please - I may be going onto the wrong page [ there seem to be so many options - our list of TB's, find a TB, TB log etc] Thanks Jenny.

Thank you very much Griff Grof - Following your instructions we still couldn't get the option to 'add to watch list' - but then realised non of the TB's have been placed in a cache yet - the cachers who retrieved them at the Essex Mega are still taking them all over the place!

We tried looking at a TB we placed  near Long Compton  yesterday and got the 'add to watch list' option - so have concluded they need to be in a cache before you can watch them! So, I think we will have to wait till the TB's we took to the Essex Mega have been put in a cache before we can put them on a 'watch list'.

In a couple of weeks we will be giving some TB's to our 3 Grandchildren for them to place in caches when we take them to Salcey Forest geo-caching, and really wanted to get the hang of the system before then!

Thanks once again for your help and quick reply. Jenny  :)

Hi All - We have recently dropped of a few TB's at the Essex Mega and to save time we would like to put them on a watch/notification list - is this possible please?
We have searched the Geocache site and found a watch list for caches, but cannot seem to find a way to put TB's on one [ though as you know by now my computer skills are sadly lacking!] Many thanks for any help. Jenny [ Mrs HH]
