Map updates via SMS

Posted on : 08-05-2012 | By : Mark | In : Uncategorized


Enabled trial version of PlotMyPosts plugin, seems reasonable, in addition to coping with Twitter Geocaching via my location, you can simply specify location at end of your text to your twitter account, obviously you need to tie your twitter feed to your mobile first.

see Plot My Posts page from menu above.

Oh heck, what was I thinking?

I have only gone and bought an iPhone for the good lady wife!

Must not be tempted by the dark side! will still happily use my Galaxy S.


After all how could I objectively critcise the iPhone if I don’t have access ;-) (don’t let the missus know!)

I decided to create a new world as getting a bit creeped out!

I decided to play with the creative option and see what things did, I got carried away with my pick, just how low can you go?

It’s a long way down I thought?

Okay so it’s black and sparkly on the bottom, I guess this isn’t good I take it

Oh yes when you walk or step onto this stuff guess what you fall and die


Obvious I guess :-)

Just started playing this.


Had a few close shaves, but overall so far making some progress.

I have even come up with a trap for zombies spiders and creepers etc, that I can then kill later when it’s day again. Basically hole in the ground deep enough so that they can’t jump out of and with an inner overhang so that zombies don’t burst into flames and spiders can’t get around.[singlepic id=48 w=320 h=240 float=]
