Log multiple travel bugs / coins at once!
« on: August 09, 2012, 21:30:51 »
At promised at tonight's meeting, here's the link to the site I dug up that allows for a generic "Discovered it!" log to be posted at GC.com for a given list of tracking numbers.  

http://logthemall.cano.sk/

No more spending hours logging each one individually.

The downsides (aren't there always):
  • You cannot enter the discovered date.  The date discovered is the date the tool logs them on.  Not a big deal IMO.
  • You must provide this unknown / "untrusted" site with your geocaching username and password so it can logon as you and post the logs.  To accomodate this, I simply changed my password at geocaching.com temporarily, ran the tool, then changed it back to my usual password.
  • It's not fast.  A 4 second delay between each log

Enjoy!

Sounds really interesting but I aint giving my password to any site.

Anyhow we move tons of bugs but do not discover any, not even vehicles and tatoos

After a quick google search we also found this program which does multiple coin/TB logs.

Same issues with password but it is a program on your computer vs a web site.  More flexible when it comes to changing things.

Forgot to mention that 1-2-3 Click is nagware and after about 50 logs it has a 10 second timer.  The author wants $4 to turn off the nagging.

the one kirok suggested needs the password so it can do the logging in your account! no problem there.

but watch out - i was trying to navigate the site a bit and somehow it ended up relogging all the same codes again and i had to spend time deleting all the duplicates and triplicates :P

Kirok's method worked for me, I also changed my password before attempting and then reset my password once I was complete.
