What's the point of geocaching if you can't reference it with a GPS

LOL! 2012, The end of the Mayan Calendar! Think about it. It you made a Calendar. How many years would you include. You Can't add all the years
to it. Your stone tablet would run out of space to write on. Even with a computer, you would have to stop somewhere.

The European Union believes that Galileo will be ready for commercial testing in 2008. A globally available positioning service is planned to come online in 2010, when Galileo will span across 30 satellites.

Personal computers where created in the early 1990's and they couldn't use dates above 1999 without major difficulties Im glad to see they adjusted the date to 2099 but you would think they would adjust the time-range with each new system built instead of making another Year 2099K bug all over again

uhh....

The DoD uses this for missle and aeronautics. The Airlines use it, and it's got too many uses to go down.

I have serious doubts they will let that program expire.

Way to go america! Bidding low bites again.

I don't remember anything happening in the last solar storm which was in 2001. Maybe an hotter summer but nothing else...
