|About the Author
Rogue1701 has been kicking
around the Internet for a few years now and likes it so much he's decided
to stay. He is the author of Home
Brewed HTML and has been designing web sites for a few years now.
I currently live in the city of Spokane
which is located in eastern Washington State (the sunny side of the
state). The word "Spokane" is actually Indian for
"Sun." Spokane itself is a city of roughly 190,000 people and
470,00 total living in surrounding Spokane County. The weather in Spokane
is about as varied as you can get. I've seen summers with a 100+ degree
days, and I've seen winters that went -30 with three feet of snow on the
ground! Anyway, Spokane is a great place to visit if you're traveling
through the Pacific Northwest.
I attend Gonzaga
University which is a private college in Spokane with a student body
of about 4500. I'm working towards degrees in Management Information
Systems (MIS) and Human Resource Management (HRM) at the Gonzaga School
of Business. Gonzaga is well known for it's schools of Law (our law
graduates have the highest first time pass rate on the bar in Washington
state), Education, Business, and Engineering.
When I'm not working or going to school I
enjoy reading and writing. My favorite topics are politics, history, and
technology. In terms of sports I enjoy Hockey (NHL
and WHL), Football (pro isn't bad, but
college ball is the best), and NASCAR
racing. The only sport I can play reasonably good (well, almost reasonably
good) is Tennis.

Browsing This Site
This site is best viewed with
the most recent versions of Netscape
or Internet Explorer.
Every effort is made to make the site as viewable as possible in older
browsers, but the majority of Internet users are now using these two
browsers so it's a very good idea to upgrade if you haven't. After all,
they're both free so what's the excuse not to!
In terms of viewing resolution, 800x600 at
16 million colors is the recommended resolution. However I have tested the
site at 600x480 and it works fine.
The majority of this site was
written with Frontpage
2000. Yes I've sold my soul by
going with a WYSIWYG editor, but the everyone else is headed in that
direction so it's time I did too. However that still doesn't let any
aspiring web designer off the hook! You still must learn how to write raw
HTML if you're going to be any good.
This site is graciously hosted
by the PlanetQuake
network. PlanetQuake is an organization of programers, web designers, and
artists who provide a home on the Internet for a multitude of Quake sites.
It's their hard work and dedication that has helped make the Quake
community what it is today. This site couldn't have made it without all
their help and support. Thanks PlanetQuake!
For graphics, Photoshop
and Paint Shop Pro were
used to create original graphics and to take screenshots.
