A big thanks to our friends at Tier 4 for buying 15 cases of marballizer paint, and inviting all of us to play. It was a great day for paintball with beautiful weather, lots of fun players (both first timers, and experienced people), and plenty of action. It was fun to begin setting up teams by calling out for .RPM vs .DEB, and then watch as destruction happened in various game formats.
Make sure to thank the sponsors, and maybe they’ll buy for us again! If you did enjoy it and would like to do it again, also let us at UTOS know, so we can plan more activities for the groups in Utah. Also thanks to the non-geek Team DesertEdge members for helping out with team balance, and keeping the games moving

Use it as a scorecard, where did you wind up? I do like that it is updated to include concepts such as backing up your drive.
Wow, this is a pretty darn nice email list search tool. You can easily filter into topics, such as Perl Lists, or Apache Lists and get some very nice analytics along with your search. Boxes gives trending on your search topic, breakdown of attachments, and which email lists are included. They seem to have already included some of your average geek favorite toys, such as: (though not all exposed in the interface yet)
- keyboard shortcuts (n,p,j,k)
- sorting (add order:date-forward or order:date-backward to query)
- negation (-extension:ppt)
- header filters(subject: extension: list: type:)
Ooh, and as we move towards the “Gimmie” season, I always love seeing the new products companies come out with to vie for my attention. Well Leatherman has a very interesting new tool that looks quite cool. The Leatherman Skeletool. I currently love the Leatherman Wave that I carry, but this one has some spiffiness that cannot be denied. I really like the look, the increased blade width, and the dual purpose carabiner/bottle opener. It doesn’t offer quite as many “tools” as my wave, but covers the important parts, in a sexy new look, and especially in the CF body, a very nice weight.
Now here is a pretty spiffy little toy to have around, the FrogPad. A small one-handed keyboard that can be worn, and bluetooth connectivity.
Says it has mac drivers, wonder how well they might work with an iTouch/Iphone when the new SDK comes out?
