I bought a refurb for $640. xps 15, second gen. loaded, etc for school.
Adapter started arcing. long story short, tech comes out to replace mobo.
swaps mobo and then drops his took box on board + cpu.
Says its ok and then uses kleenex to clean the thermal paste off.
Smudges the thermal paste from northbridge into the MB and shorts it out.
Lost screws and didnt have replacements.

needless to say I was livid as I have been building computers since I was 6? 8? and told him off. dell was a pain in the *** all the way. of course, my college decides that EVERYTHING has to be done online, so I was really ****ed for about 2-3 weeks. Still in the process of getting the replacement up to spec since their drivers are outdated/bugged/not listed on their site...


In regards to the project at hand, we're still here.. It's just a *****. I might see dark h20 @ a game this weekend.. might have to show off a bit

Sounds like rank incompetence to me! I've been building/repairing computers since the late 80's and never done anything like that.

Jonathan is working his *** off on his real job (70+hrs/wk) and we're trying to simplify the prints so it's less expensive/more robust/etc. I'm at school, running my business, and working a separate job.
It's slow... yup. And there's not much to say other than that.

I did bring ALL of my stuff to school over the weekend, so I will have an active test bed once we get the latest revision. I also know that there are a few fields near by and I know a few of you are local.. so hopefully I can show it around eventually.

I know we've talked it up a lot and I know many of you have followed this from the beginning. How do you think we feel? This is something we really want to come together, but has been delayed on multiple occasions. Do you think we like putting our names on something and investing so much effort into something and then not having much to show for it? I can tell you that based on our past combined and individual businesses experiences, we only "do" what we think is absolutely ready to go. We had some issues with the prototypes and we figured out what needed to be changed. We're working on it. We are. If you want to keep following or in touch, awesome. If not, it's understandable.

My inbox is always open. RK, you know I have been nothing but up front with you whenever you've asked a question, even when I didn't know what the hell was going on, lol.

Looks like we're getting back on track.
Few minor tweaks and verifying the ease of machining from the current set of prints and then we're off to the shop for prototypes. =D

to many pages to read for this but if im right (new to the g4 fam) the tech t bolt only works with their cap...... so maybe a more efficient bolt with no orings and thatll work with the pressure guage.

The Techt bolt is pretty decent and does help the DP gun line significantly, but I think this bolt is going to make the HE bolt look less spectacular. These guys are legit. They make a variety of products that are really great. This is merely the latest.

@geck: In regards to a pressure gauge, believe me.. I want something that will work with one as well. The first round of testing was a bit of a pain to fully tune the bolt train, especially since we were having those finishing issues. I have found that the CP reg spacer w/ gauge port helps a lot, although especially for what we are doing, the gauge in the back to measure the exact pressure in the can is useful.

Some positive progress:

I spoke with a HIGHLY respected member of the paintball community, someone whom I truly look up to, in order to seek advice on furthering the development and production of our bolts.

He gave us some fair insight into how the process works and where we should head next. We're currently exploring options for patent(s) and where to get our product made.

As soon as the prints are ready to go, I believe we will have some solid quotes to start working with in order to get the new prototypes out for testing, etc.

Hey DW,
I know its a bit late compared to the regular DP regulars, but I'd love to jump in as well and help out. I only had a Rev-I when you guys started. I have a G3 sitting here now, and hopefully have another and a Spec-R or 2 coming in soon as well.

Thanks for the offer!

In the next week or so I will be contacting all the people who have signed the NDA's to see if they are still up for testing. After that I will take a count and see where we are and if we need more people.
