Geocache Description:


The cache is NOT at the published coordinates but there is parking for 1 car here

Recently I've been helping my 14 year old mini-cacher with his GCSE ICT homework. That's O' Level Computer Studies to most of us I would imagine.

How things have changed. Nowadays they've got powerful PC's running 64 bit operating systems and its all about building websites and understanding how to use Excel. Everything you want is just a click of a mouse away.

Back in my schooldays, computers were only 8 bit and we had to know how to do serious stuff like convert between binary, hexadecimal, octal, decimal and vice versa.

Kids these days, they dont know they're born!!!.

See what you can make of this:-
