Can't see to be able to download it. My iTunes has received the title and description but cannot download it. I get the little exclamation mark in the first column.

Will try again tonight.

I get the exclamation mark sometimes in iTunes. I think that means iTunes is temporarily not downloading that podcast (because you haven't played the podcast in iTunes or because you don't use iTunes to synch with an ipod which tracks which podcasts you play) (this happens to me because I use iTunes to download multiple shows but then use Media Player to synch with my mp3 player).

What I do is whenever I see the exclamation mark, I click on the triangle to open the list of podcasts, then double click on any of the shows, let it play for 3 or 4 seconds and then stop it from playing. Then iTunes seems to be good for about two weeks. I usually do that to all of the shows I download as soon as I see one exclamation mark popup.

Seems the problem at libsyn is solved. Just downloaded it, will now transfer the podcast to my usb stick and listen to it in the car on my way home.

It failed for me several times but then worked. Could be worth keeping trying.

I fancy that job in Essex!

A couple of years ago I was caching with a group of friends in Yorkshire (pronounced "York-sher" not York-shire!) we met some newbie cachers. It turned out that the guy (whose name I can't remember) worked for the local council as a gardener. His manager had heard about geocaching, and handed over a GPS and told him to set up a GC account and find out what it was all about, and whether it was something the council should get into. If so, part of his job would be to place and maintain caches in the council-run parks. The following year I found myself working in the area, and I was able to find some of his caches that were near to the office where I was working.

Are you sure your sneaky hide meets Groundspeak guidelines if it's partially buried? I think we had a disagreement about something similar on the forums a few months ago.

Really enjoyed the show and all the traveling caching stories. Loved seeing behind the scene of the Podcacher studio. I think we need a whole flickr set on the house and studio in the near future.

As the guidelines say “buried” and the top is showing, so it's not. Also the guidelines specifically prohibit the use of pointy instruments. I doubt one is needed for a 3 inch piece of PVC. Wink I'm fine the “spirit” of this type of container, would appreciate the challenge and certainly enjoy the ingenuity of the creator.

I too liked your match container suggestion however I do not believe it meets groundspeak’s guidelines for hiding a cache. I don’t see too many naturally formed cavities in the ground that allow for snug inserting of PVC piping. Regardless as to whether it is completely buried or not I believe groundspeak intentions are to discourage digging of any sort. Specifically: If a shovel, trowel or other "pointy" object is used to dig, whether in order to hide or to find the cache, then it is not appropriate.”

From all I have read on the subject the goal is to hide containers without altering the natural landscape. You can bury with rocks, leaves, and sticks but digging of any amount is off limits. Similarly I would not drill a hole in a public structure or cut a hole out of a tree to hide a cache.
