October 20: "Somewhere in the world, it's Soaker Season!"
- iSoaker.com 2000

Welcome to the redesigned iSoaker.com: For the Extreme Water Warrior. Leave NO one dry! Many things have been udpated and changed since the site went into off-season mode. The following listing is a short summary of changes made to the site. Of course, it is still best just to explore and see what new things one may find.
Updates/Site Modifications:

  • New Splash movie and music posted.(Really!)
  • Flash detection movie added. (If you didn't notice it, you probably already have Flash 4.0 or above installed.)
  • Main Sub-Section Flash movies and TitleBar Flash movie tweaked. Bottom-menu button Flash movie removed due to redundancy.
  • Site location bar added to the top of every page to facilitate site navigation with back-link branch points listed.
  • New layouts and smaller font sizes used on most pages for a cleaner feel and read.
  • Multiple pages combined if possible to reduce number of clicks required to read sections.
  • New sections/pages added:
    World News Section
    History of the Super Soaker ®
    iSoaker Tech Research Page
    Tech Development: Fast-Fill Bottles
    iSoaker Forum (Yahoo! Club affiliated with the Aquatica Club)
    More...
  • New fan-submitted pages posted:
    CPS2000: Pump Repair
    SS Pen World Review
    Super Soaker Storage System

15: iSoaker.com offline update continues to progress. The next major update expected in late October or early November.

September 20: iSoaker.com has begun to undergo a face-lift off-line. At present, it is currently not known when the updates will be completed and posted. It is hypothesized that the changes will become public around the time when the 2001 line of Super Soakers ® is announced. Until then, iSoaker.com is looking for visitor input about what you like or think needs improving with iSoaker.com. If you have any suggestions, please send me an email.
08: With the approach of autumn coming for the Northern regions, the Super Soaker ® season here draws to a close. As such, iSoaker.com will be slowing down as there are not as many developments during the fall months. However, as the new year approaches, be sure to check back as information on the 2001 line of Super Soakers ® is released. Other site updates will still occur, only not as frequently.
01: Welcome to September! September tends to mark the end of the northern soaking season and the countdown until fall. iSoaker.com will be soon going into off-season mode. During off-season time, update posting frequency will decrease while more changes are made to the site offline to prepare for the 2001 season. A sizeable update is planned for the future, but time will tell when work will commence on the change and when it may be posted. For now, the lastest update is the posted: iSoaker Elite: Part VI. Enjoy!
