"hi :) i was able to take a vacation during august of 2001. it just so happened that quakecon was going on during august 9 - 12 and that gave me the perfect opportunity to meet some people i've only known online and others i get to see yearly, if that often. the event itself is pretty much a big party and not really my thing, so i stayed with my friends riana and rich and hung out with them. we also stole my friend yoss away from quakecon for a day to hang out with us. here is my collection of pictures that i took. i hope to put some more up once riana and yoss send me the pictures they took."
The online quake scene, in its simplest form, is a bunch of people who all like playing the same game against each other (or with each other) over the internet. Clans are really just a group of people who get along well together, frag well together, share a common interest, organise wars, have fun and muck around. The last thing you need to know, is how to express your emotions - be it in the game, on message boards, in email or sms - from now on, smilies will be the tool you use to show your heartfelt pleasure, absolute disgust, indifference or sheer joy about the goings on in your world.
