Every year, a little town in Texas becomes home to thousands of gamers for four brilliant days of gaming. In these four days, thousands of gamers will flock to the hometown of id Software, most with their own computers in tow, for the country's biggest LAN party: QuakeCon.
"It's always the quiet ones. Tim Willits is a nice, bright, clean-cut 20-year-old. He lives in his parents' St. Paul home and cleans his room when Mom tells him to. He's a University of Minnesota senior, with a double major in business and computer science, and an officer in the ROTC. He has a part-time job at the University Relations News Office, where he's so well regarded that he has the honor of wearing the Goldy Gopher costume and serving as the school's representative at nonsports functions."
This week ArrrCee and dumptruck escape to another universe! The Quake 2 universe that is. Donde takes us on a decades-long journey through the worldwide Quake 2 multiplayer scene. He documents the historical, sometimes hysterical and always human stories starring gamers from around the world. It's late 90's gaming history, one Quake 2 story at a time. Another weird, wonderful and sometimes deeply poignant edition of the QuakeCast.

Well, let's see... I would have to say it all started back in '72. That was the year I was born. Grew up in sunny San Diego, and ended up spending the first 23 years of my life there. I could describe them, but I would bore you to tears, so we'll just leave it at that. I attended San Diego State University, and worked as graphic designer extraordinaire for Woodstock's pizza, where I continually drew little dragons (the mascot of Woodstock's), until I accidentally graduated from school.
Well, #quakecon seemed to be a success. Several people were impressed with the turnout including the id boys. I will have #quakecon pics in a few days and I'll have room to post them since I now have more web page space. Like a little good web page maintainer I took a fair amount of notes. I attended Thursday night, Friday night, and Saturday afternoon.
