Talk:Canberra, Australia

From Geo Hashing
Jump to: navigation, search

The Quicklink to today's hashpoint seems to be based off the wiki's time, which is based on UTC(?). Anyway, it's a bit behind Australia time (e.g. I'm typing this at 8:00am June 12, and it's giving me the hash for June 11).

I was just looking at this yesterday. Unfortunately, the wiki biultin variable of {{CURRENTDAY2}} is wikiserver time based, and there is no alternative. I've requested to zigdon a fix - in fact he expanded my request into two solutions. One is URL based (a variable in the URL to say that the location is 30W so use the date given for DJIA, but 'tomorrow' for the algorithm itself. The other is to have [+][-] buttons on the page itself to increment date without having to type it. This, imho, is nicer since everyone benefits it on the weekends :) --Nemo 22:34, 11 June 2008 (UTC)

Summary of Expeditions[edit]

hi Canberrans

The summary list of all expeditions will be starting to get unwieldy soon (within a month at this rate, imho), so I am proposing the following for sometime down the track (perhaps for this months end?)

  1. alter section title to be 'Summary of recent Expeditions' (emphasis here to indicate change only)
  2. create subpage for more comprehensive list. Perhaps Canberra/Expeditions2008
  3. the Canberra page itself then rolls over only the last 4 weeks or so...
  4.  ???
  5. profit! discuss!

stupid voting[edit]

Hear hear on the stupid voting idea. In my oh so humble opinion, the whole point is that the location is (effectively) random. Let's never use the "vote" function and stick to geohashing! :P --Kieran 12:45, 17 June 2008 (UTC)

  • I agree, your idea for "inaccessible Saturdays" is excellent. --Jevanyn 20:10, 9 July 2008 (UTC)

Meetup time back to 4pm for summer![edit]

I reckon we should move the meets back to 4pm over summer, except where agreed otherwise in the usual pre-hash flurry of e-mails.

No more pyro[edit]

Canberra is no longer the capital of pyro. I am very very sad. I miss pyro. --Kieran 08:51, 29 August 2009 (UTC)
