While attempting to fix the “re-direct” file when visitors browse purely to “http://www.isoaker.net”, while it appeared to initially work, for some reason, it broke the ability to easily log into the site.
As such, I’ve reverted it to the older re-direction file that does not work as smoothly, but at least appears to avoid the log-in bug issue.
Another shot of an upcoming single pressure chamber water blaster…
Hold on a sec – is that a hole?
Though the temperatures in the forecast remain near-freeze for the upcoming weekend here, it is time for me to do a little spring-cleaning of my collection and prepare for the “On-Season”. Warmer weather should just be a week or so away (though there remains the chance of chills for at least another month).
For spring, I don’t dive into everything, but I go over my active armoury an ensure all water blasters are in good, clean, working condition. While I do clean and empty my blasters prior to storage, a few months in a box can still result in some dust accumulation (and the occasional spider web if my storage area isn’t sealed tight). It’s also the time I make decisions on what new blaster may be worth adding into my active armoury and what, if any, blaster should be moved from active to long term storage.
What do you do with your armoury at this time of the year?
Happy first day o’ Spring!
Go out and soak someone you love!
Leave NO one dry!
The iSoaker.com Water Gun / Water Blaster Buying Guide for 2015 is now posted.
Aimed at those looking for advice on how to get the best water blasting for the buck, this guide strives to balance objective performance statistics together with cost and user preferences. What is the best water gun for one is not necessarily the best blaster for another.
Of course, while every water gun has its use somewhere, the water blaster models we try to recommend are ones that are more flexible on the field.
In the end, individual preferences may have you choose one of the models not recommended, but it is always better to know your options to improve your ability to make the best choice for YOU!
Happy one year for iSoaker Warriors on Facebook and Google+!
One year has now passed since I finally opted to dive more into social media with varying levels of success. While neither page has grown virally, both have proven useful for interacting with fellow water blaster and water warfare enthusiasts and, as such, are deemed successful. As more things develop and change over the next few years, it will be interested to see how both these channels grow.
So much for a simple solution – seems like the current WordPress installation for iSoaker.net is not allowing new users to Register properly. I’ve tried to register a new account (using one of my other email accounts to test) and have not received a registration confirmation email. I know of at least one other person who has tried to register without success. Looking into it.
Update: I reconfigured how emails are being handled by this installation. If you have not received a confirmation email, please try re-requesting your password and hopefully it works now.
Buzz Bee Toys Inc.
While it happened about a week ago, for those who haven’t seen it yet, Buzz Bee Toys Inc.’s website was updated for Spring, 2015, including pages for their newest Water Warriors water blaster models.
While the site, itself, remains very basic in terms of functionality, I will admit it is at least easier to navigate than the 2014 version of the site that took ~4 or more clicks to actually reach a product page.
That said, while the new Water Warriors items are ok, it would have been nice to see a new truly-pressurized water blaster released. Then again, I probably understand better than most the challenges they’ve faced and some of the reasons behind the lack of a new pressurized water blaster at this point in time, but that is the topic for a future post.
A single drop striking the surface of a pool of still water creates ripples that spread its energy outwards, affecting every corner of the pool.
Analogous to this, a great idea presented at the right time to the right people can lead to a dramatic change, spreading beyond the initial source to affect countless others everywhere.
