Next Chat Room Event will be 3 May 2010 @ 9 PM Eastern.  This will be the 10th anniversary of geocaching.

May 1, 2000 - an announcement was made that Selective Availability would be lifted.

May 2, 2000 - at approximately midnight, EST Selective Availability lifted and the accuracy of GPS technology was greatly
improved.

May 3, 2000 - Dave Ulmer :bow:  hid a black bucket at N 45° 17.460 W 122° 24.800, filled with videos, books, software, and a slingshot as well as a logbook and pencil. He called it the First GPS Stash. He shared the waypoint of his "stash" with the online community on sci.geo.satellite-nav. Within three days two different people read about his stash on the Internet, used their own GPS receivers to find the container and shared their experiences online. The sport of geocaching was born!

I've listed it as a Facebook event.  If you're on FB, see if you can get to the event page to RSVP.

Was great to meet you guys.  Let me know when the date is closing in... I'm terrible about checking my schedule.

Gee, can't understand why I'm so tired today, hehe

Sounds great!  I've just been sorry that KFL hasn't been able to make a session, yet.  Will plan on going with May 17, unless a different day of the week would work better for him.  KFL?

I am sorry myself that I couldn't make it. The problem with the next time is that I will probably also have to skip this (I will try though). That week is one really, really bad for me being available in the evening. Don't let that being in your way though. I might be able to come after all, and if not next time then the next after that.

I have never heard of Ventrilo before. Looking at their site it seems there is no linux client available. And there is no source either so that I cannot compile it my own. I guess a simple chat is fine with me at the moment. I don't really need a mic, but thanks for the offer.
