Thanks!Share with your Friends:More What geocachers are saying:“Talk about frustrating! When we found the cache I was quite confused based on the size of the container and the nano title. Man was I in for a surprise when I opened the container! While avoiding the ants and other crawley things, this one took me a few minutes to get worked around. Just glad to have figured it out. #7 with HerroSone. Submitted this one to Geocaching.com as one of the best field puzzles around!!” – Wild Dog Clan“Got this with the kids after a long day at the beach! Awesome Cache!” – Superhero Team“Its Caches like this that keep this game interesting. Not what we were expecting… Everyone took turns at retrieving the nano. WOW! Mahalo For The Cache!” – KALA696What the geocache owner, ValerieAndMason, has to say:“A few years back there was a flurry of urban nano hides (with spotty coordinates) that kind of took the fun out of the game for a large portion of the active geocachers on Oahu. My wife and I actually like nanos so I began thinking of unconventional ways to hide them, this is the one that started it all. It’s a pvc pipe maze that was built to fit the container, I had no idea what it was going to look like when I started. There was no blueprint just “what ever looked good”. I’ve already told myself that if this one goes missing, the replacement will be twice as big and ten times harder so for everyone’s sanity I hope it never gets muggled.The goal is to make something different that will excite or even frustrate (sorry) others but still gives them a sense of satisfaction once it’s done. Favorite points are always appreciated but never expected, when we do get them we know we did something right.We really enjoy reading the logs and find ourselves going back to read them all again, from the FTF to the most recent. They also help to keep us motivated to find and build even more creative caches.We can only hope that our geocaches keep the game fun and exciting for others and gets the gears turning for those brilliant minds out there. We know that ammo cans in the woods are the most popular and preferred geocache, especially for the veterans, but the handmade, imaginative ones are the most memorable to us.” Photos:You’ll have to work the geocache through the tubes from start to finish.The nano and the tubes in their case.The geocache in the wild. Photo by geocacher havespots Technically, it’s still a nano. Geocache Name:Nano Invasion: A Tangled Mess (GC3YJ5Z)Difficulty/Terrain Rating:3.5/1.5Why this is the Geocache of the Week:It’s no secret that micro and nano geocaches sometimes get a bad rap. But with the right creativity and work ethic, even the smallest geocaches can be a big adventure. To sign the micro logbook in this geocache, you’ll have to work the container through a series of tubes until it reaches the exit. Be patient and you’ll earn your smiley in no time!

mike melanson Tags:#Browsers#Google#Microsoft#NYT#web#YouTube 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market We have to say that you know the end is near when entire countries advise their citizens to move on, but the final kicker comes when Google says that it will no longer support the browser that’s been with us for nearly a decade.Google-owned YouTube will end support for Internet Explorer 6 on March 13, just two weeks after ending support on Google Docs. We suspect that YouTube will affect a larger portion of IE6 users and may be a final tipping point.Internet Explorer 6 was first released in Aug. 2001, and has since come pre-installed with Windows XP, which still accounted for over 60% of browsers worldwide in December of last year.Ars Technica explains that Microsoft refuses to force its users to upgrade, even though it “has stated time and time again that it wants to see IE6 disappear as much as anyone else.” Currently, IE6 accounts for about 20% of surfers worldwide, with IE8 currently the most popular version. According to Google, users running IE6 and other old browsers will still be able to watch videos, but will be shown an interstitial every two weeks, as seen above, to remind them to upgrade. Some features will not be available to these users until they upgrade. Google considers “old” browsers to be anything older than IE7, Firefox 3.0, Chrome 4.0 and Safari 3.0.In other news, we can only hope that this is a signal that we will be seeing some cool new features rolling out in the near future for YouTube. And perhaps more companies will come out against the now-ancient browser and help to put it out of its, and Web designers’ everywhere, misery.

In this final installment about insulation we’ll take a look at the family of rigid boardstock materials. Unlike fiberous or spray-foam insulation that is installed in wall or ceiling cavities between the studs, rafters, or joists, boardstock insulation is applied either on the interior or exterior surface, spanning across the framing.The three most common types of rigid boardstock insulation are plastic foams: extruded polystyrene, expanded polystyrene, and polyisocyanurate. Extruded polystyrene (XPS), including the familiar light-blue Dow Styrofoam and Owens Corning’s pink Foamular, is the most moisture-resistant of these three and is commonly used below-grade to insulate the exterior of foundation walls and under basement slabs. XPS provides an insulating value of R-5 per inch. Unfortunately, XPS (in this country) is still made with ozone-depleting HCFC blowing agents, which manufacturers are required to eliminate by 2010. Manufacturers of blowing agents, refrigerants, and other compounds have made great progress in eliminating substances that destroy the Earth’s protective ozone layer in the stratosphere since the hole in the ozone layer above Antarctica was discovered in the 1980s. XPS is the only insulation material still made with ozone-depleting blowing agents.Expanded polystyrene (EPS), also known as beadboard, is manufactured more locally by smaller companies than is XPS, and it can be purchased in a much wider range of dimensions, thicknesses, and densities. The most common EPS, with a density of about 1 pound per cubic foot, doesn’t perform well below-grade, but it can be ordered at higher densities that do much better in such applications. For below-ground use, I recommend at least 1.5 pounds per cubic foot. Two-pound EPS is even better, with performance much closer to that of XPS. The most common low-density EPS insulates to about R-4 per inch. It is manufactured with pentane as the blowing agent, which does not harm ozone. EPS is the most common insulation material used in producing structural insulated panels, such as those made locally by Winter Panel Corporation and Foard Panel.Polyisocyanurate is the highest-insulating boardstock option, providing R-6.0 to R-6.5 per inch. A special low-conductivity gas fills cells in the insulation, and foil facing slows down the loss of this gas or entry of air—a process that, unfortunately, reduces the R-value somewhat over time. This gas fill or “blowing agent” used to be an ozone-depleting compound, but manufacturers have shifted to ozone-safe blowing agents, usually pentane.Polyisocyanurate is most commonly used for roofs and walls, but almost never below ground because it can absorb moisture.In addition to these three rigid-foam boardstock materials, there are also rigid fiberglass and mineral wool boardstock insulation products. These are excellent in the right applications, but they are usually only available for commercial construction; they are not carried by most building supply centers serving residential builders and homeowners.No matter what the type, boardstock insulation opens up some great opportunities for creating highly insulated—or superinsulated—walls. With new construction, I have long been a proponent of going well beyond a typical 2×6 wall insulated with cavity-fill fiberglass or cellulose. I believe that a reasonable R-value target for walls is R-35, and if I were building a new house I’d probably aim even higher. The easiest way to achieve such a high insulation level with wood-frame construction is a 2×6 wall with cellulose cavity-fill insulation and then an exterior layer of 3” of polyisocyanurate boardstock. However, that wall system, providing about R-35, will entail some extra effort with detailing:First, the thicker walls will require extra trim around windows and doors. Second, you will probably have to combine two layers of boardstock insulation (a 1” layer and a 2” layer) to achieve the recommended three inches. Third, to provide racking strength (to hold the walls square), let-in metal bracing, or plywood or OSB sheathing, will be needed in addition to the boardstock insulation.Lastly, to install siding, you’ll need strapping with extra-long screws to secure it to the wall studs. (An added benefit is that the air space behind the siding that this strapping creates—called a rainscreen detail—improves the life of the siding and reduces the frequency of repainting.)By providing such a thick layer of foil-faced boardstock insulation on the exterior, there is virtually no chance of moisture condensing within the 2×6 wall cavity; the cavity-fill cellulose insulation will be fully protected. Other approaches for achieving superinsulated houses, including SIP construction, double-stud walls, and special non-structural wall trusses that are hung on the outside of the structural wall, will be covered over the coming months in this column.
Indian national shooting coach Sunny Thomas’s baggage is feared to have got lost in Guangzhou, China.Thomas lost the baggage on Sunday on arrival in Guangzhou for the Asian Games and is yet to find it. He complained to the Thai Airlines but without any results.With the baggage gone, Thomas didn’t have any clothes except what he was wearing. He said he was finding language a huge problem.Apart from such logistical issues, the authorities at Guangzhou airport too have come in for criticism. The Indian shooting contingent was harassed by airport staff during clearance of their equipment.
