Woah! Just realised how close this is to the meridian. Multihash opportunity?! The two points are only a few miles (and the River Thames) apart. This could be insanely good -- Norsemark 22:45, 19 June 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Post-hash initial thoughts

Before I post the report, I'm just going to say that I'm not going to post up any achievements as I'm not convinced they were earned, sadly, but there's a story attached, nonetheless...

Gimme some time to pull it together - once it's all there you'll understand why!

[edit] Claim

Google showing location accurate to 3dp

Unless there are any objections, I am going to claim this as a successful attempt.

In spite of technological failure I reached the point to 3 decimal places (which is as detailed at the G1 Application enables) and traced the route along the street wall. The GPS tracker doesn't nail it down to feet and inches and hence shows the dancing route you see here.

Have no problems in calling it a "Blinded By Science" failure if this is insufficient proof, but I'm not sure what else I could do to prove this one.

Any thoughts?

As long as you have no doubt that you reached the point, or that it was perfectly reachable without further effort, that's perfectly fine. We're not doing hard science here. Only if you know there was that unsurmountable wall or fence or ditch or field of nettles between you and the hash, then you shouldn't claim it. -- relet 12:26, 22 June 2009 (UTC)
In which case I feel my conscience is clear. Mapping it places it on the edge of the wall I walked along. And I have had no problem identifying my two other attempts as failures for obvious reasons. Cheers -- norsemark 12:39, 22 June 2009 (UTC)
Congratulations then. I enjoyed reading all three of them. :) -- relet 13:07, 22 June 2009 (UTC)
