Include "Date-time of last successful cache retrieval"

Question

Hello again,

this time I don't think the feature is in - and that could help a lot people who choose to use Geocaching as regular members.

Often, I reach quickly the 3-caches-insanely-low-limit-enforced-by-Groundspeak.

The problem is the next day, I'd like to know when was the last successful retrieval so that I know at what time I might download the next ones.
(Ideally, that would preferably be the datetime of the 1st of the 3 last successful retrievals, since from that time I can download again at least one - but programmatically that's more challenging),

Not so easy to keep track of the downloads...
Thank you!

Does Groundspeak really reset the counters at random points in time?  I would have expected the reset to be midnight Pacific Time… which would make it easy to know when you can download more.

No, not random. I think it's 24 hours since your first download.

Indeed. Groundspeak keeps an accurate date and time of the (three) last retrievals.

For instance, on Saturday, if you download the 1st at 8:00am, the 2nd at 10:30am and the 3rd at 11:45am, 
then you have to wait until Sunday 8am to download one next cache, then you're blocked until 10:30am for the next etc...

Yes, this is correct.
