Category talk:Not reached - Technology

From Geo Hashing
Jump to: navigation, search

Philosophical question: If the coordinates lie in an area that has not been declared off limits to the public but which contains live mines, is covered in acres of shredded rusty metal, is contaminated by toxic waste or otherwise is rendered unsuitable for geohashing by manmade items, and despite the fact that you would be allowed to go there, you decided to turn back, how do you class it?

Not reached - No public access isn't appropriate, because we're postulating a situation where hazards have been abandoned on public land.

Not reached - Mother Nature doesn't work, unless we consider that Mother Nature has failed to assimilate the carnage, and failed to provide you with invulnerability.

I'm thinking Not reached - Technology is the best, even though it is not your own technology that has betrayed you, it is a technological problem.

And no, thanks for asking, I don't have anything better to do today. -Robyn 21:16, 31 March 2009 (UTC)

Not reached - Chickened out? :D -- relet 21:18, 31 March 2009 (UTC)
Not reached - used common sense? Koepfel talk 21:20, 31 March 2009 (UTC)
Or maybe - either you complain about not having the technology that allows you to reach the hash (i.e. a protective suit), or about your inability to withstand Mother Nature's toxic giveaways. -- relet 21:23, 31 March 2009 (UTC)
Ah yes, relet, that clinches it on Technology. You lack the technology, whatever that may be, to reach the geohash. Of course on that note, I could class my retro hashes as Not reached -Technology, because I don't have a time machine, and my unsuccessful swamp hashes for lack of a helicopter. -Robyn 21:31, 31 March 2009 (UTC)
Though an expedition in a radiation suit would be pretty awesome. I'd still say mother nature. What caused you not reach the hashpoint is the current state of the nature around it, the reasons for this should not be restricted to only non-man-made causes, imho.
