Week of July 20th, 1998
How important is it to you that games and mods are ported to Linux, Solaris etc as well as Windows?
|Life or death|
|Couldn't care less|
|You mean you don't have to run Windows?|
Void: I run Windows, but I suppose it's somewhat important, since many of the servers I frequent are probably on Linux.
Fargo: It's mostly an issue of servers -- Linux is common among people who run big server machines, and a mod needs lots of servers for people to play it, so porting the code is pretty damn important.
Joost: There's plenty of servers out there that run Linux. It's a big deal.
Gestalt: Looks like Bill has a lot of you brainwashed...
How old are you?
|none of your business!|
Void: This is an anonymous poll... must be a lot of uptight people 'round here!
Fargo: If I had a 15 year old kid, I wouldn't let him or her read the PlanetQuake Mailbag. ["Why the hell not?" - Gestalt]
Joost: Finallly a poll that doesn't lump me int he 25-35 bracket. I'm 26.
Gestalt: Single white male, 21, GSOH... Guess that makes me the kid round here. Right gramps?
Just how l33t are you at deathmatch Quake/Quake II?
|I'm the best there is, baby! SUCK IT DOWN!|
|I'm the pits! If there's a lava pool, I'll do a back flip into it...|
|I don't play Quake/Quake II online|
Void: Top 10%, along with those other 600 people.
Fargo: The 150-odd people who claim to be the best there is oughtta duke it out on a big server sometime.
Joost: Used to think i was only good because of my office T1, then i played Quake 2 with a modem at 56k and still turned out pretty good.
Gestalt: No surprises there then... So you think you're all good, eh?
Are you a Quake transvestite? Or do you play using a model appropriate to your gender?
|I'm a Quake cross-dresser born and bred|
|I don't care what gender of model I use|
|I only play using the right gender of model|
|What's a player model?|
|What's gender, mommy?|
Fargo: There's something sexy about the feel of silk panties. Oh wait -- are we still talking Quake?
Gestalt: Um... Fargo, stop looking at me like that.
