Newbie Nostalgia?

14 June 2011 - 04:49 PM

You guys ever get hit by nostalgia thinking back to when you were a newb in this sport?

When things just seemed a bit more complicated? When you really thought your buddy's spyder was a high performance marker? When you lusted after the electro markers and hoppers that you had never actually seen, but have heard speak of? When you could just barely imagine the prowess a gun shooting 20bps would bring you?

When 20 inch barrels gave you extra distance and accuracy? When this gun clearly shot further and more accurate than that gun because it was more expensive. When there were snipers and machine gunners? When you would take your gun and gear out and mess with it just for fun.

When you didnt care about all the little things, but rather just enjoyed playing. That shitty old JT mask with the scratched lens that kept fogging didnt put a damper on your day at all, you just liked playing paintball. When you didnt religiously bring microfiber cloths with you, because a simple wipe on your shirt was all you needed to get your lens ready for more carnage?

When the stories were endless after playing paintball... When you would go home and bore everyone that didnt care to tears, because of that one time you were hiding behind a rock and they walked right by you and you turned and shot them from behind. The stories just kept coming, and you could talk for hours on end without losing your breath.

Man, I dont even tell anyone paintball stories anymore. Its kind of depressing.

Been looking around for a while to find a necro ram for my Alias... No luck so far. Anyone got one they are willing to part with?

"My Content"

07 June 2011 - 02:25 PM

So before the update, when I wanted to check the threads I recently posted in, I would go to my profile, then hit "find all posts by danath 34" or whatever it was, then it would list all of my posts chronologically with the most recent at the top... When I use the new "My Content" button, I cant really tell what order the posts are displaying in. They definitely arent chronological, because I can find all sorts of posts from a month ago or more, but cant seem to find posts I made an hour ago...

Am I the only one having this problem?

For example, I posted in my motorcycle club thread, and when I try to get back to the thread via My Content, I cannot find it at all. I have to click the link in my sig.

I am on windows vista, using IE 8. I can try a diff version of IE or even FF when I get home...

Look what came in the mail!

A big brown (rather mangled by UPS) box! What could this be?

Damn. Considering its advertised as a 'compact' bag, I figured it would be small. Its pretty damn big! And while I would never spend that kinda money on a gearbag, it is extremely nice. If anyone is on the fence about buying one of these things, do it! Its very nice, and Im still finding hidden pockets everywhere lol. Plus, I think it will be able to hold up to the weight of all my gear a bit better than my old gearbag:
(note: it is unzipped not because I want to show off my awesome valken pack I won on the TechPB radio show, but because the zipper went flying off last time I picked up the bag)

B/S/T Advice?

28 April 2011 - 01:23 PM

Didnt know where to post this, but I was wondering if anyone more knowledgeable than I could give me some advice on money orders?

On another site's B/S/T (a motorcycle site, not even pb related, but theres a lot more people on here doing b/s/t than almost anywhere else, so I figured someone here would have some suggestions) I am about to buy an exhaust system from a guy. It is a rather large purchase (800$) so I need to be extra careful.

Problem is, he doesn't like paypal, and prefers to use money orders. I dont like using money orders, as I prefer the buyer security of paypal. Matter of fact, I have never done any kind of b/s/t with money orders; it has always been paypal.

I have done the standard things, such as asking for his contact info, and plenty of pics of the pipe, with a sheet of paper with his name and date on it.

However, what else can I do to minimize the risk with using money orders? I am going to talk to my bank and see if there is any kind of claim process I can go through in the event the worst happens, but with the nature of money orders, I kind of doubt it.

So what kind of advice do you guys have?
