My Cluetracker is suddenly asking me to log in and approve Clue Tracker so the app may access my account. I've logged in but don't find where to approve Clue Tracker. any advice?

My son had me go to the app store and choose Clue Tracker which had an update which fixed everything.

I took a print making class back in college, and I'm thinking that we did wet the paper first so it didn't warp. If only the inked part is wet, it could warp, so to have it all wet keeps it even.

And to re-wet it would be to help it dry flat, I'm thinking.

But then I'm still on my first cup of coffee and that was 20 years ago... :)

I think when I was in the LTC print tracker the hostess left out a step in her instructions. She kept saying make sure to let it dry for several days, which I didn't understand because my paint dried really fast. This makes sense now, I was supposed to wet the paper first. I used a ton of paper trying to get good imprints, the stamp kept getting stuck on the paper. This video made it look a lot easier.

anyone beta testing this app? am i just dense or does it NOT have an underlying map?
this was the most imporrtant part of box radar for me i used it when i was on long trips, especially the intersates to get me close to boxes that never showed up on aq/lbna searches

also wonder how klugie you found logging into aq/lbna everytime you use clue tracker to hind finds and attempts?

we need to give the developers as much feedback as possible

I live in Florida where the average humidity is around 110%. If you leave something out to "dry", it had better be indoors, and it had better be during air-conditioning season. Fall or spring the A/C doesn't run much, so even indoors the humidity is too high for reliable drying. Things will get dank and moldy rather than dry.

When I worked at P&WA in West Palm Beach, there was a station out on the assembly floor where you could get prints of jet engine diagrams made. It was a great innovation, because otherwise you'd have to climb two flights of stairs and put in an order and wait a day. This way, when you needed to check some dimensions or something, you could have your answer in a minute. The machine looked like any other printer only bigger, used sheets of paper about 3' x 4'. Had a stack of paper loaded in a tray, just like any other copier.

Did I mention that the assembly floor was not air conditioned? I worked there for years before I learned that, every night, the lady in charge of that printer took the remaining stack of paper out and threw it away. The next morning an entirely new stack of paper was taken out of storage in an air-conditioned area and loaded into the machine. Paper that had been in the machine more than 24 hours tended to absorb too much moisture and get all wavy and jam the machine.

Right now I'm trying to resurrect one of my stamps that was retrieved after the hiding location was bulldozed and paved. The container had been mangled so the stamp was wet. Doesn't hurt the rubber any, and doesn't hurt the oak backing, but the foam in between gets full of water. You can press it with your thumb and squeeze a few drops of water out. So, just leave it out to dry, right? It's been out to dry for three weeks, it ain't dry yet.

I am one of the android beta testers for Clue Tracker (ACT). The current version does not have an underlaying map, but then, neither did Box Radar. Both apps relied on google or mapquest or wherever to get fresh maps every time the app was used.

What BR did have was the ability to store clues in the app after they were downloaded from AQ and LbNA. Clue tracker for iPhone has this ability and I understand that ACT will have this ability soon. I believe it is the next feature that the coders are working on now that the map feature is working.

That said, I have been using ACT for a few weeks and does retrieve LbNA clues just fine which was one of the features that has stopped working on BR. I still have BR on my phone as it still works with AQ clues.

box radar for me i used it when i was on long trips, especially the intersates to get me close to boxes that never showed up on aq/lbna searches

I do not understand this. How did BR show you boxes that "never showed up on aq/lbna searches"? Those are the only two places that BR ever got clues from.

You do not have to log into AQ or LbNA "every time" you use ACT. ACT remembers your userid/password and logs you in whenever you do a search for boxes. Since ACT does not store the clues you have to run a new search each time you exit the app and then re-start it but that is a
temporary inconvenience that should be rectified in the next beta version.

You need to use a good SUtPO (Security Ultra-Thin Pad), Overnight model, with a breathable, flexible cover and a 3D capture core. . . with wings.

That reminds me of our copy paper years ago here in IL. It used to get wavy. For some reason it doesn't anymore. Our copy techs would tell us that we had to put it in the machine right-side up. ??? How ridiculous, since we could make 2-sided copies. Thanks for bringing back some memories.

Having purchased a print from LROSEM as a shameless gift for myself, I can tell you that her skills are amazing and totally worth checking her pages out! They are some real inspiration on what a talented carver can do. I can only aspire to gain her detail in my images!

In ga we also have some crazy humidity. I often stick stuff in my gas oven and let the pilot light take care off it. Leave the oven light on or use a sticky note so you dont cook whatever it is. Works great on log books it you seperate pages first.

LBNA and AQ have different policies about adoptions--on AQ I believe the original owner's permission is required for someone else to adopt a box unless the original owner is known to be deceased. Even if the original owner hasn't checked in in a long while they still might and they'd probably be miffed that the box was taken over by someone else.
