A minor update from #184. Sounds like most HC owners are up and running again. There may be a minor issue with the 60C-series from Garmin. If you have trouble, post in the forums. I’m calling this RC-1. I know all of the bugs aren’t fixed, but I need to push out a newer version than 1.2.3.

New USB to Serial Driver Available

If you are not using the KeySpan USB to Serial adapter, you probably have one based on the “Prolific Chipset.” The drivers from the company that makes the chipset do not work in OS X or with MacCaching. If you are having trouble with your USB to Serial Adapter, please give these drivers a try:

Off-Topic: Copenhagen

During the week of January 20th I will be visiting various cities/countries in Europe. During the work week my schedule is pretty full. However, I have a day in each weekend for sight-seeing. My first stop is in Copenhagen, so I gave Geocaching in a foreign country a shot. Since I have limited mobility I was only able to look for urban caches. Unfortunately I had 3 DNFs. However, I didn’t try very hard because I did not want to raise anyone’s suspicion.

If you are interested in seeing two of the sights I had a chance to take pictures of, here is a link to my .Mac/iWeb page “Copenhagen 2008.”

The next stops on my trip are Munich, Stuttgart, and finally Milan (with a weekend stay.) I doubt I can do sight-seeing much less geocaching during the week, so I am looking forward to my Milan visit!
