Graticule Naming[edit] seems that we think along the same lines. I've already named every NSW graticule, but not yet mapped them. The important thing is to check the maps on existing graticules and see if people have named any of the 8 bordering graticules, as we could run into name conflicts if we select something different. Then again sometimes people choose strange names, and maybe we should just change them on there as well. Don't worry about the typo, you had just misspelt New South Wales on one of the pages thus creating no category for that graticule. It's 2.30am and yet somehow I'm picking up tiny errors - time for bed I think... --CJ 15:36, 7 October 2008 (UTC)

What's wrong with strange names? --Sean of The Relentless Haberdashers

Nothing at all, I'm a huge fan of silly names. Just the idea of a tailor relentlessly chasing me is kinda scary. I'm an easily scared kinda guy. -- UnwiseOwl 00:47, 9 February 2009 (UTC)

vanilla ice[edit]

You edit worked, I guess you just forgot to refresh the cache. I don't mind vanilla ice. -- Relet 08:17, 10 October 2008 (UTC)


Thanks for fixing up my dodgy links. I'm really not particually good at this sort of stuff! I do feel a bit bad making work for you (and CJ's fixed few for me too!)

I'm actually from SA! I grew up in Penola in -37 140, went to Uni in Adelide, then moved to Sydney.

Hopefully I'll be going hashing tomorrow in Adelaide- perhaps the one near Murry Bridge. Are you going?

Hi, it would have been great to meet up- I was there at 4pm! Wasn't it a fantastic place? One day I plan to walk the length of the Heysen trail, so I'll be there again one day. Actually, it would be nice to be back at a time when I wouldn't need to be so paranoid about snakes too! I'm glad you went to the log book too- otherwise it could have been like Burke and Wills! Alas, I'm back in Sydney again, just popped back to SA to see Mum and Dad! Kate 07:19, 23 February 2009 (UTC)


You need better internets :P Anyway, will update you tomorrow. --joannac 07:07, 17 October 2008 (UTC)

Sorry, was cleaning the bathroom. Talk to you later --joannac 02:43, 19 October 2008 (UTC)

You too hon. Have a great Laura night, see you tomorrow. --joannac 05:28, 17 November 2008 (UTC)

Sorry, I'm capped and my connection is playing up. Send me code and I'll look in the morning. --joannac 12:43, 19 November 2008 (UTC)

Sorry, hon. Broken again. See you in the morning? --joannac 13:01, 19 November 2008 (UTC)

Hi, I didn't even notice that you had created a joint map for all Australian geohashes... I had something like that in mind for a world map (but on a smaller scale, i.e. only a few pixels per grat). Incites me to work on that again... if only I had more time. See you around! Hessophanes 02:41, 15 December 2008 (UTC)

Well, I'd bet you could do it better than I did. I've just done it up manually for now, but if you can find a way to automate it that'd be really really cool. I look forward to seeing it, Regards, Ted. UnwiseOwl 03:55, 15 December 2008 (UTC)

First Emo Geohash[edit]

Thanks for the welcome message :) But I swear, I shall get the the first Emo Geohash, just you wait and see! No cheating now ;) -- Aurum

No Problem[edit]

Hey! Thanks for the encouragement...have fun on vacation and we'll look forward to hearing from you in a month. :-) NCBears


Sorry about that, UnwiseOwl! I'm not sure what happened. I remember going to edit the page and Thomcat's name being the last one and adding myself right below him. But clearly the wiki says otherwise. My apologies! --excellentdude 04:17, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

No worries. -- UnwiseOwl 04:21, 20 February 2009 (UTC)


I have finally worked out how it works. Very keen on getting some inland ones now! Wouldn't it be cool if we got them all!

Am very excited about reading your report sometime...(!) --Kate 13:20, 25 February 2009 (UTC)

Australian Geohashing Progress Map[edit]

Hey - not sure if you're still updating your map on your user page, but Sutherland (south of Syd grat) and Forster (NE of Syd grat) have both been successfully hashed by yours truly...--CJ 04:02, 26 February 2009 (UTC)

I haven't for quite a while, as I believe it has been superseded by dawidi's wonderful Maps and Statistics, but thanks, if I do update it, I'll make sure you're included. Also, great work :D. -- UnwiseOwl 04:05, 26 February 2009 (UTC)

Globalhash tags[edit]

Thanks! I was getting to them, I promise! Full report is up at 2009-03-04_global. David Souther 04:17, 5 March 2009 (UTC)

Space for Personal Attacks, General Jerkiness and aperfectring[edit]

My place is reserved only for you, and is therefore better! --aperfectring 02:52, 6 March 2009 (UTC)

I figured that you would have a reserved place for the expression of your own unique brand of jerkiness, leaving it open for other jerks to open their own jerky spaces. I find it important that each person has their own space, where they feel free to be their jerky selves. --aperfectring 02:59, 6 March 2009 (UTC)

Typical egotistical Aussie. Thinking only THEY can be an effective jerk. Jerk --aperfectring 03:03, 6 March 2009 (UTC)

No, you just use fake modesty to come off as more of an egotistical jerk. --aperfectring 03:08, 6 March 2009 (UTC)

Wait, you are a human? I honestly thought you were just a jerky dumb owl. --aperfectring 00:33, 10 March 2009 (UTC)

Jerk --aperfectring 23:52, 7 April 2009 (UTC)

Son of a motherless goat! ----aperfectring 00:15, 27 May 2009 (UTC)

South graticule on 14th Match 09[edit]


How would you like to visit the southern graticule today? Its only a little way offshore and I have a tinny.

Also we could perhaps ask Setsujoku if he wants to come.

Cheers, TheJosh 22:00, 13 March 2009 (UTC)

Go on IRC. --TheJosh 22:17, 13 March 2009 (UTC)


UnwiseOwl, are you actually going to add the photos? --TheJosh 05:17, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

Yes, I am actually having problems with my camera, it's playing stupid. Photos will be uploaded as soon as I get the damn thing or it's replacement back from the shop. -- UnwiseOwl 04:43, 24 March 2009 (UTC)


Hi! I'll be in Adelaide this weekend. Fingers crossed! --Kate 01:56, 1 May 2009 (UTC)

Calendar beauties[edit]

Hey Owl,

I am writing to you in the attempt to complete the geohashing calendar. As you have volunteered as a calendar girl, may I kindly ask you to send me your picture in high resolution (or the highest resolution available to you) for the print version?

Please find the currently suggested layout for your page on

And feel free to comment if there's anything you like or dislike or would like to see improved. :)

Best regards, Thomas



I know it was ages ago, but do you have our photos yet?

Cheers, TheJosh 01:45, 21 August 2009 (UTC)

Geohashing Calendars[edit]

Make sure you check out this page so that we can send you your order. Deadline is December 18th. This is all your fault after all! :p Thepiguy 10:45, 5 December 2009 (UTC)

Tale of Two Hashes Challenge[edit]


On the IRC, we just came across your challenge for "Blackwood Forest" and there's a thought: If you want that achievement pretty fast, you could swap it for just Blackwood. Since "wood" and "forest" are basically synonyms in the context of placenames, we think that Blackwood and Schwarzwald would be close enough ;-) --Ekorren 21:54, 5 February 2010 (UTC)

The weekend[edit]

Hey hey owl you wanna do a hashpoint this weekend? --TheJosh 22:39, 19 November 2010 (UTC)
