WordPress 2.3.1 Update

The CWF Game Cast updated from its 2.3 version of WordPress to 2.3.1 today. Why do this, you may ask. Instead of trying to explain it all to you, the WordPress people did a great job of it already.

Please read WordPress 2.3.1 at the official WordPress blog. That explains all the reasons why we upgraded. But, basically, we did it for the link importer and security fix.

Are You Ready for Some Paintball? Again!

Recently we discussed my friends and I getting back into paintball in the article, Are You Ready for Some Paintball? Now we have an update. A big shout out goes to Boston Paintball in Whitman who spent a heap of time helping me pick out equipment and answering questions.

My Spyder Sport was upgraded with a 14 in blue aluminum Proto barrel. The barrel is a one piece construction featuring straight porting to increase accuracy while making it quieter than ever before. Not bad for $29.99. (Click the pic for a closer look)

Next up was some protection for myself. This came in the form of a pair of JT Body Force kneepads. Rolling around in the ground and diving to avoid incoming fire is bad on the knees. Decent protection cost only $9.99. (Click the pic for a closer look)

I also needed a barrel sock because fields, now, don’t let players use the plugs. One lime green PMI barrel sock fit the bill at just $4.99.

Last, but not least, is a pair of black Empire Contact SE Player Gloves. Costing $39.99 they were my most expensive purchase but they fit like a glove, no pun intended, and will serve me well in the field. (Click the pic for a closer look)

Now all I need is an athletic supporter, don’t want to get hit in the groin with a paintball, squeegee, oil, and other necessary spare parts/maintenance equipment. I think I also want to purchase a harness and spare paintball holders. It’d suck to run out of ammo in a game.
