gestalt: I'm going to London for my first (!) LAN party soon, that's a couple of hundred miles I guess. To go much further than that, it would have to be something very special, or paid for on expenses. ;-)
Fargo: Let's see -- I travelled 3000 miles to a LAN party once, stayed up all night the night before to finish everything I had to do at the office, and when I got there -- thanks to that and the three hours difference -- I slept through the whole thing. WEAK!
Void: I went across the country for 3 Beatdowns... and plan to again.
dweomer: Used to travel 400 miles every month to the Beatdown. :)
Joost: I've flown all the way to the other coast for a beatdown several times. Heck, I might even go to Canada if it's worthwhile.
Bastard: Depends on how good the Lan Party is.

How many people do you need for a great LAN party?

100+ - the more the merrier...
83
7.6%

gestalt: I'll let you know when I've actually been to one...
Fargo: I'm leaning toward the 20-50 crowd, myself.
Void: 50 - 100, Beatdown style, of course!
dweomer: 20 is nice for just an evening... but 3 day Beatdown of 80 ppl is best.
Joost: Beatdown is almost pushing it these days. 40-60 seems a good number.
Bastard: You can have great Lan Parties with just a few people.... I think the potential for fun goes up with more people and great organization.

Did you download the Shogo demo?

gestalt: Unfortunately my creaky old 56k modem would have suffocated on it. It took me about 8 hours to download the Sin demo...
Fargo: That many people didn't hear about it? Who's the dork in charge of promoting stuff on this network, anyways? (Oh, ah... oops.)
Void: Hell yeah... cable modems rule :)
dweomer: Hell - I uploaded it. :)
Joost: I don't know what all the fuss is about with huge demo downloads these days. 40+ megs download in a few hours on 56k. Well worth it. (That was a 'yes')
Bastard: Man oh man.... grab that sucker!

gestalt: I can live without Quake. Oh yes. Definitely. I could give up any time I want. Um .. er.. *fidget* Just one last time, OK? /me fires up GameSpy...
Fargo: This weekend I played no Quake. *twitch twitch.*
Void: I've gone a couple days before, but it wasn't easy.
dweomer: Month... there were a couple months where I played only at the Beatdown and not at all in between. doh.
Joost: Several weeks. I get less time lately.
Bastard: I'm ashamed of all of ya! I leave quake running in the background. ;)

How many of you have tried editing Quake? (models, maps, code, whatever...)

Hell yes! It's what I do for a living

69
6.3%

107
9.9%

gestalt: When I'm not working for PlanetQuake, I also run a company making Quake add-ons - The Coven.
Fargo: I've tried map editing. It's whacked. You have this perfect image in your mind of what you want, and then you have to break it down into shapes, and then you have to explain to some deaf dumb buggy editor where you want everything to go. Someone needs a plain-text voice recognition level editor. "I want a big room with a glowing reactor in the middle. No, a red one. Cool!"
Void: Yeah, I tried, but was quickly discouraged 'cause I sucked.
Joost: I did a moderate amount of Doom editing, but never managed to get the hang of it well enough to produce a good Quake level.

If you're kicking someone else's ass, what do you do?

gestalt: Hm .. I guess they must have fallen asleep at the keyboard. Must be time for bed...
Fargo: Collect my money.
Void: I just do my thang... unless they initiate the Smack Talk, I'll keep my mouth shut.
Joost: Smacktalk and hope my neighbours don't wonder about me.
Bastard: This is the first time I've said to myself "who the hell thought that these answers went with this question? How do these things happen?"
