"Connecting with that community is really what it's all about. QuakeCon is built for it. First, there's the giant tournament … hey, what's a Quake convention without playing a ton of Quake? If you're not beaten to a pulp by the continuous weekend of Quake playing, the stifling Texas heat will probably render you unconscious. If you're lucky, you'll live to make it again next year. If you're unlucky, the giant insects will devour you... Here's to QuakeCon!"
"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."
"I journeyed down to Texas this year to hang out, drink beer, party, and generally have a good time. As I expected, it was the highlight of my summer. I brought my digital camera with me, and let me just say, the camera rocks. Sony Digital Mavica MVC-FD8x series. This is the most pictures I've taken with it since the women's world cup, and it didn't crash or fuck up or fail me once. Anyway, as for the event itself, all I can say is that I will be there next year, even if it means I miss a test."
