Mynxusa the Gorgon: --- Uptime: Windows98(7hrs 6mins 42secs) PimpIRC(3hrs 59mins 38secs) Server(2hrs 59mins 11secs)
Spyke: About 90 mins ago. I turn it off at night and when I'm at school.
Pappy-R: Since I just went through reformat hell...about 30 seconds ago was the last reboot. DAMN! BRB!
Hellchick: About 10 seconds ago when it performed its mid-evening crash. That's right after the scheduled afternoon crash but before the occasional late night crash.
Ash: I don't really have any crashes anymore, so just a weekly reboot or so for good measure.
Lee'Mon: I built my computer piece by piece, and slapped Windows 2000 on. It doesn't crash until I TELL it to.
Demonwench: My freakin 'puter is possessed. It reboots whenever it darn well pleases, when I'm right in the middle of something.
shaithis: I run Win2k... reboot like once every two or three weeks, just for the fun of it.

shaithis: Why you little punk! What're you doing telling me my business? I pulled them guys offa here, eh?

18.1%

Mynxusa the Gorgon: I follow id pretty closely :P
Spyke: Mods are made by teams? Geez, there goes my whole immaculate conception theory.
Pappy-R: I watch a whole lotta teams very closely.
Hellchick: Well, I kind of have to for work purposes. But otherwise, I generally just watch the PQ news for my favorites.
Ash: I'm with Hellchick.
Lee'Mon: Well, if my favorite mod team wasn't my own, I'd probably have some explaining to do.
Demonwench: I only know of WireHead, Lee'Mon's very own. I enjoy watching him veeeerrrrry closey. ;-)
shaithis: Hmmm... I tend to follow individuals, not teams. Good mappers, texture artists, modellers, etc.

I have gotten in a fist fight with friends that say Counterstrike or Unreal Tournament is a better game.
303
33.5%

Mynxusa the Gorgon: Check out my two kids. Heh.
Spyke: I got a kickass job. :)
Pappy-R: ummm...hello!
Ash: I can't say I've gotten in a fist fight with friends, but of course, anyone that said Counterstrike was a better game wouldn't be a friend. ;)
Lee'Mon: I camp out at Best Buy to prevent people from buying CounterStrike.
Demonwench: I was introduced to the insanity by Lee'Mon.
Hellchick: I work for GameSpy, and I got hired as the PlanetQuake site director. I think that answers the question.
shaithis: Unreal Tournament is a better game. *dodges fist* Hey, look man, I work for GameSpy, not PQ! *narrowly averts kick to groin* It's not my fault they keep asking me to come back and answer these questions! *gets speared in arm with plastic fork*

sCary and all the "Stuff that Sucks".
218
24.3%

Mynxusa the Gorgon: Stuff that sucks speaks to me.
Spyke: I'd win! I'm ruthless, whereas Fargo is full of ruth.
Pappy-R: A drunken Fargo with or without toga (don't go there), is like an act of God.
Hellchick: Fargo is GameSpy's representative in this list?! Excuse me, I must see a doctor as MONKEYS ARE FLYING OUT OF VARIOUS ORIFICES!
Ash: aggs and #radio_evil ... ah yeah.
Lee'Mon: Me; I've got rcon access.
Demonwench: Monkies flying out of various orifices would hurt, but of course, the question remains...how'd they get there in the first place? And I have no clue who the above people are.
shaithis: I agree with Hellchick. We should be represented by Pharcyde, crt, Vertigo... someone like that. Fargo would still be camping the rl, despite the fact that you start with it. ;)

 


Who are these people anyway?

Pappy-R is the PlanetQuake Site Director and ensures that all the coolness on PQ that happens, happens.
Hellchick is GameSpy's Action Genre Producer, or at least has convinced her friends that she is.
Ash is PQ's Content Manager and doesn't realize that there are other games in the world besides Quake.
Mynx is our resident advice expert, knowledgeable about all sorts of topics that the rest of us are just too scared to touch.
shaithis is a former PQ Site Director who now spends his days running GameSpy.com and sharpening the spikes on the top of his cubicle.
Spyke does the PQ in Review, the PQ Mailbag, and your girlfriend.
Lee'Mon writes articles and editorials for PQ, which means he's really into finding things to complain about.
Demonwench helps with the Mailbag and helps give a fresh new perspective for how people suck.
