Hi everyone. First off, let me apologize for the delay in answering
emails. I basically haven't been reading it since April (been rather
busy). I'm afraid the Quake III tutorial will have to remain in a state of
"under-construction" for a while. I recently graduated from
college (Gonzaga University) and I've
taken a job as a Systems Developer with a high-tech start-up
company. I'm also working on starting a company with a friend. So, to
say I'm busy is an understatement.
will do my best to stay up with email (no promises though). I'm sorry to
say that this site will have to remain incomplete for a while - but the Quake
III Guide is very usable in its current form. Thanks everyone!

Merry Christmas! I sure feel like poping the cork off some champagne ahead
of time because I actually met a deadline! The Quake
III Arena Guide is online. Please note that this release is a
preliminary draft. It is missing about 40-30% of its content. But,
everything a beginner needs to get rolling with Quake III Arena on the
Internet is there.
free to send comments, but do keep in mind that
much editing still needs to be done. In the spirit of the Christmas season
I now present you with a little holiday skit from our friends at Mystery
Science Theatre 3000. Enjoy and Merry Christmas!!
"A Child's Christmas in Space" by Tom Servo...
Tom: It's quiet in the cold of our own little orbit, starless and bible
black. And as I look down on the big blue beam we would call home I think
it so near, yet... oh I *wish* on that star and I hope that in a little
snow-covered house with a warm hearth and a loving family, maybe some kid
is looking up tonight and wishing upon us. Oh, and how I hope sweet Santa
will fly by tonight, because if he does I'm gonna reach right out and hug
that big guy. Oh, for the sound of hooves against the steel hull of the
ship. Oh, to see the rosy face of Santa in the portal offering me a Coke
and a smile...of course, his face *would* be rosy because it's a vacuum
out there. I mean, Santa's heart would explode! But he wouldn't feel it
because his capillaries in his brain would pop like little firecrackers
due to the blood boiling away in his face like pudding in a copper...OH
THE HUMANITY!! And his jolly old belly would start bubbling like a roasted
marshmallow, eyes bulging and popping out... AND THE REINDEER--OH THE
REINDEER!!!--each bloating like holiday floats, in their turn exploding in
a hail of blood and entrails...Prancer: BOOM! Dancer: BOOM!...
Joel: Tom take it easy, Santa's gonna be okay, buddy.
Tom: Ya sure?
Joel: Yeah, give him a little credit, okay?
Tom: Phew, what a relief!

Well, long time no see! Sorry I've been missing from this site recently -
but really there hasn't been a whole lot to do... until now. Quake
III Arena was just released! As promised, there will be a Quake
III guide on this site. It will be the same, easy-to-follow format that
I've always strived for.
timeline: (1) I finish up my final exams, at the latest, December 20. (2):
After finals I will go all out on writing this guide and getting it up
here by Christmas Day (Dec. 25). I know a lot of you guys and gals will be
finding a fresh copy of Quake III under the tree come Xmas morning so I
want you to be able to play it, that day!
holidays everyone! And keep your fingers crossed for a Christmas release
of the new guide.
site is optimized for view in 800x600 and higher at resolutions of at
least 16 million colors.
This site has been tested viewable at 640x480, but for better results I recommend
at least 800x600.
