Beginners Guide to GSAK 8
« on: November 01, 2012, 20:06:25 »
Being a GSAK noob myself, I was reading a GSAK thread on the geocaching.com forums and this beginners guide to GSAK 8 was mentioned.

Thought this might be of use to others here.

I've heard so much about GSAK that I thought i'd do some research and see if it could help me out in my caching experiences.  I followed your link but the beginners guide has been removed  ???

Odd, I still see it just fine.

You have to download the file off the presented page.

I can get to the linked page, but the link there to download the presentation file fails, not because the link is bad, but because dropbox.com rejects the connection request.  It might be an intermittent thing, I'll try later.

I'm pretty sure I downloaded that presentation.

I'll check my GSAK "stuff I may need later" folder and see if it's there.

Links like that are blocked from my workplace, so if you're looking at it from work, you might have the same issue.

You may well be right.  I didn't think this was what was going on because in this scenario the proxy normally diverts to a warning page, but this didn't happen.  I just noticed that the download link specifies https, which may be the difference.  If I try a non-secure access to dropbox.com, it is blocked by the proxy.

I guess I should get back to work!

I did have the file in my stash.

Original Word Doc (8 MB): https://www.box.com/s/6tvh5vx0s6tldnn1kfic

The following two documents were converted from the original document via Word 2013:

PDF (4 MB): https://www.box.com/s/en48r1o9k7d37vluw8gp

Word 97-2003 Doc (8 MB): https://www.box.com/s/fb9oikw4jq85l8dy31xq

Clicking on the links will bring up a preview window which you can then download the files from.
