I'm not happy with the Forum and don't wish to lose the old Yahoo list

Dan,
The Forum has a PMB (Private Message Service) which can be used to reply directly to a user.
Click on the user name to bring up a profile and do PMS, or Click on the Messages box.  If you have a message, it will be flagged on the Messages box.

Hey Tuesday Riders,
Weather seems likely to clear for a nice ride Tuesday.
9:30 am start (ouch, just after switch to DST so pay extra attention).
Fun break at Bagelmeister in Jacksonville.
Since I think Sparks Rd is still closed, we will add one mile for extra-extra credit.

ATTENTION: Ride Leaders

Steve has moved any rides which you posted in the OLD schedule / Cuesheetcentral (or were posted for you) over to the NEW calendar.
Because there is a chance of errors in this transfer, PLEASE check your rides.
You may not be able to edit the rides which Steve posted onto the NEW schedule.  So if there is a problem, post corrections as REPLIES to THIS THREAD.
If a Ride was NOT transferred at all, then you get to practice ride entry by putting it in yourself.

Steve had to make some decisions to fit the new format:
1. Ride Name - If Steve could have choosen a better name then REPLY to this thread;
2. Ride End Time likely shows 12am, ignore this or let Steve know via REPLY what it should be;
3. There may be some confusion when there are more than one leader.

Development Team for GC Problems
Category: Technical

Garmin Connect, successor to MotionBased, is used by Edge, Forerunner, and other sport devices for upload of Garmin gps logged activities.
It looks like the Garmin Connect team may have just collapsed.  Garmin has shut the San Francisco office, and attempted to relocate the GC Team to Olathe, Kansas.  The Team answer appears to be "are you kidding?"

See the GC Team page at The GC Team We built Garmin Connect. We're for hire.

How do I get a signed decimal Long/Lat values?

One easy way is to use the Google Maps beta Long/Lat tooltip.  See below for how Oregon Ridge Looks when tooltip is enabled.

If you have Google Earth then the Long/Lat and Elevation under the cursor is reported.

For the boat launch area off of RT 286 (1198? Bethel Rd), Chesapeake City, MD 21915), I get coordinates (approximate):
39°31'33.5"N, 75°48'21.6"W
You can copy/paste those coordinates into Google Maps or  www.gmap-pedometer.com and it should show you the map point. At the least, the map should be centered on that coordinate when you zoom in.

I rechecked my GPS way point And I read

   These should put you a the parking lot.

I suggest that postings to the Forum use the simplest format for longitude and latitude - signed decimal pairs to 4 places.
39.5259, -75.8060  for the above boat ramp
Entries of such pairs into Google and other online maps will give best results.
   ==>Ride Start for 39.5259, -75.8060
The use of degree, minute, second characters are difficult for most keyboards.

Four Falls Ride: Four Falls Ride (40 miles) with a Three Falls Ride (33 miles) option. Expansion of my popular Three Falls Ride where we ride on each of FOUR of the various Falls Roads in Baltimore County. Snack early at mile 15.
Cue Page 1 is Four Falls and Page 2 is Three Falls.
Hilly to rolling @ 3700 ft.

Looking like we will have excellent weather and not much wind for Tuesday's Ride.
Leaving Oregon Ridge at 10:00 am.

PMS is needed once bbctalk shuts down
Category: Social

Since the problem only happens after doing a preview, I would prefer to have the functionality of a flawed PM.

If the bbctalk listserv is to be shut anytime soon, the PM system has to be available.
Only other possibility is open access to people's email in order to do private conversations.
(And reduce public forum junk).
