ps - I have just gone to the OpenCpn site, it is open on my machine as I type. Whatever problems you have Sawing, they are not courtesy of Paul or OpenCpn.
AUSSIE!AUSSIE!AUSSIE!
OY! OY! OY!

PS- thanks Steve for the screenshot.

I suggest you go to your history log and verify what you actually typed. I am 99.99% sure that it was something other than OpenCPN | Official OpenCPN Homepage.

I'd love to see a screenshot of your history log to see what site you went to.

Yo knots, good time for you to have a face to face with some of your dock mates. Somebody can show you the ropes. Not real difficult once you get the hang of it. It will beat the heck out of a social networking experience.

Re: gps navigation

I doubt the crowd around my dock has ever even been more than a mile or two away from my marina,a trip down to the next lake would be a major event in fact some rarely leave their slip I seriously doubt any could give me any pointers concerning navigation,somehow I've always managed to muddle myself to where I want to go

Re: gps navigation

Click on the list showing people here, click on the gear icon, click turn off. Usually stays off for a while until a cookie gets reset or the site has some work done.
Don't search for anything though, you never know where you are going to end up.
