Carter's Paintball Update
Time for an upgrade? Get the latest CPU.... Carter's Paintball Update.
You can sign up and subscribe there. There's a description there, but I'll explain it here too. The CPU is going to be a weekly update, that will have the latest in paintball news, mcb site news, a few funny items, a gun of the week, and an out of context quote from the site.
It's supposed to be both informative and fun.
Going to send them out every Wednesday, or every other Wednesday depending on how much time, work, and stuff I can get together.
On the forums, left hand side, you can submit news anytime to get published. There will also be an ongoing archive eventually.
Why do this?
Our friend Tracey, aka Paintjunque is going to (if not already) be put back out to sea. He's on the USS Maine nuclear submarine for those who haven't played with him or know him. He's a great guy, but will not have access to the website until he gets back. And that most likely won't be until Thanksgiving. Full details are sketchy as they are secret on where he goes and how long he's under.
Here's where we come in. He CAN get text only e-mails via a military e-mail address.
So I wanted to make it possible for our friends to stay connected. Also, as this site continues to grow at the crazy pace that it is, some of the more important posts and information gets lost in the shuffle for those of us that don't check it hourly it seems.
This will be a simple way of keeping all the need to know information together. Many of the Premium members have already signed up, and we did a test run already. So far, it looks real good.
Please note. This is a separate list. MCB does not send e-mail to the e-mail you signed up as. And unless something catastrophic happens, I never will.
You will need to sign up on your own if you wish to get on this list. Unsubscribe at any time.
Also, please PM me with any idea that you have that will make this list all that much better. I will post a copy of the test e-mail below.

Welcome to the first CPU test edition.
CPU Edition 0.5 - 08/20/07
I'd like to first thank our test subscribers. Please let me know if this came across odd, got caught in spam filters, etc. Not sure if there is much I can do about the spam filtering bit, but I'm just curious. Please send all responses to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Also, you may see some dupes in this test run, and the actual run to happen next week. Don't be alarmed. It'll just be me being lazy.
As always, if you have news, upcomming events, etc that you would like to have placed in CPU, please send them to this special address: ONLY FOUND IN THE NEWSLETTER

Lastly, as for the name. I stated it in the members section, and I'll put it here too.
I just could not come up with a good name for it... But had to put something to it. Post your name suggestions for this mailing list. PLEASE. Unless you're ok with what I came up with in about 2 seconds, then that's fine. Either way, let me know!
