Just take care not to get pulled over by the Police when doing this sort of thing, they can (and have) been known to stop the odd car while shooting a video - and before you ask - it wasn't me that got stopped Cool - Mike

That's alright, my camera is totally hands off, but I'll be careful all the same. Thanks.

mostdom, i would think that it is more that they think you are filming yourself going 186mph on the short 30mph stretch of road just ahead rather than worrying about where your hands are (or aren't)

privateer and bopeep have a PocketGPSWorld.com Facebook in place already. If you are already a Facebook user, log in here: PocketGPSWorld.com Facebook Login

I've been trying to sign up to Facebook to see this, but when I submit the registration form I get "Could not open socket".

A Google search hasn't really helped. Please can anyone here help?

facebook tends to be farrrrrrrrr to popular and if america is awake, then the site is often too slow to use!!

try it in the morning and you're usually ok

I may be wrong, but I think PaulB2005 meant THIS site (PGPSW) was slow, not Facebook

I've suggested to Darren that it might be worth having a central place (sticky or whatever) for reporting performance issues with PGPSW because they seem to be cropping up in all kinds of places.

Darren said that he will look into this shortly

Tried to register with Facebook again VERY late last night with no success, but from what I read from a Google search it looked as if it might be a security issue. I briefly changed the security settings in IE, and maybe it was a coincidence, but it worked.

Wonder if it was worth all the effort!! Wink Hurry up with that video, mostdom, then perhaps a few more people will join the group. Very Happy

Just to confirm, the Facebook PGPSW group is not run by Privateer or myself. It was actually set up by another member of the forum and we were the first people invited to it as we know this forum member offline.

If anyone has any problems, comments or issues with the group, please do not contact Privateer or myself via Facebook or this forum - it would be best to contact the group administrator via Facebook.

Regards,

Laura.

Sorry, Bo Peep, if you felt my comments were a criticism. Embarassed

It's just that this is such a vibrant community I thought that, as there was a Facebook group, it would be nice if more members from here joined and contributed.

My post was not directed at you, it was a general post to clear things up as it seemed to be thought that we were in any way affiliated with the group, that's all.

I meant to post last night but ran out of time and was in too much of a hurry to quote the original post by Rob.

Sorry for any confusion!

Regards,

Laura.

Good. That's OK then, although it means it definitely wasn't worth the effort! I assumed from Rob's post that it was at least a semi-official group.

It'll be done when it's done. I've got a small box office smash in the pipeline that'll have to be sidelined so I can accommodate this miniscule sketch.

At least you're showing you have the right priorities by sidelining other stuff in favour of PGPSW stuff Thumbs Up
