This cache is temporarily unavailable.

Amberel: In the light of the government rules introduced this evening I am disabling all of my caches until further notice.

The first thing to note is that they ARE rules , and not simply advice. The second thing to note is that the ideal is for nobody to go out for any reason, but for practical purposes there are a few exceptions. One of these exceptions is to go out for the purpose of doing some exercise. Going to find a cache is for the purpose of finding the cache, for which there is no provision in the rules at all, any more than there is for any other hobby.

These rules have been introduced not just for the protection of the person pursuing their hobby, but even more so for the protection of everyone else, and for the protection of the NHS.

I request that nobody visits them, and in the circumstances will delete any found logs.

Thank you for your co-operation,

Rgds, Andy

Geocache Description:


A series of jigsaw puzzles of varying difficulty but with a common theme - they are photos of TOP CACHE locations, or photos I have taken on my way to a TOP CACHE.

A picture speaks a thousand words :-)

Jigsaw puzzle - Shafted


The following is general Jigidi advice, not specific to my puzzles. The advice applies to the web browser interface - I understand that there is also an iPad app but I don't know how that works.

In order to see the completion message it is necessary to have an internet connection at the moment the puzzle is completed.

It is not necessary to log on to Jigidi in order to complete the puzzle and see the completion message. However, there are advantages in doing so. Provided you have an internet connection, your progress is saved, so if you need to stop, you can later on resume from where you left off. And you can recover the completion message at any time for any puzzle you have solved. If you are logged on then it tells you if you have lost the connection and warns you that if you continue, the completion message will not be displayed. All you have to do is re-establish the internet connection and continue.

I have, however, had a few reports of the completion message not being displayed when the puzzle is completed on an iPad, and where the user believed they were both logged on and connected. I have borrowed an iPad and done some testing, and the HTML5 player does appear to be less than 100% reliable. If you follow this advice I believe you will maximise your chances of it working OK, but the "flash" version running on a Windows PC is entirely reliable and so in my view is by far the most sensible choice if you have this option.

Here are the instructions for recovering the completion message at a later date:

On a PC, running the Flash version of the player: Log on, click on "Puzzles", then "Completed". Click on the appropriate puzzle image. It may ask if you want to "restart" or "view" - you should "view". Click the pause button, then the speech bubble - the completion message is displayed.

On an iPad: The browser uses the "HTML5 Player", of which there are 2 versions - the current version and the legacy version. You are warned that the legacy version has bugs and there is no reason to use it. Log on, click on "Puzzles", then "Completed". Click on the appropriate puzzle image - you may have tap it twice, the first time just seems to put a tick by it. After the second tap it should display the image plus some statistics for that puzzle. Tap the image again. If it comes up with a message saying you are using the legacy player, it will ask if you wish to switch to the latest player - do this. The puzzle is then displayed again with the completion message visible on top. This procedure usually works, but not every time. Furthermore, it is possible for this iPad procedure to reset the puzzle such that it starts again, and if it does this the completion message may no longer be recoverable on a Windows PC. Unfortunately I cannot work out why it sometimes works and sometimes does not.

Good luck, and enjoy the puzzle.
