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.

The Panther XL allows the player to "Free-Look" totally independent of the direction of travel. With this independent control you can run one direction and fire in another without breaking stride. You can also "slide" around corners with your gun always aimed in front of you, ready for anything. John Romero, Co-creator of Quake, famously said, "If you wanna crack skulls with the big boys, get a Panther XL."
