I have been back to playing Q for about 4 months now. Interesting how it has gone in cycles for me. I started playing in the late 90's in grad school, using the University of Colorado's 28.8 "free" bandwidth. Pings of .250 were the norm. I initially learned (and was spanked pretty well) on B-sessions server, I believe Gooland back then...and any popular rune servers I could find. I used to be able to search active servers using a Gamespy app which browsed them and allowed me "click" and connect. Then jobs/ life took over and I didn't play again until about 2006, when I frequented Singed. My recollection is that Diazoild ran that server... and he and I were pretty well matched players... I had DSL at that time. And now I have found Slot's site. I ran through the member names as I signed up, thinking that I MUST have joined before, I was a member of quakeone since about 2006 or 2007...but somehow missed this site. It would be an honor to help contribute to the financing of this site. I am interested to see when fundraising kicks off, again.

It was good to see some familiar (old) names... Toyo_MR2; Diazoild; Monster; Govt_mule; Sircamps; Paradise; Necro.

On an older computer I have a photo of a bunch of us standing next to each other on a Saturday night, probably on the "start" map. Ill have to see if that is something I can post.

On Q, I love runes; I like some friendly humor and taunts; I like helping people with technical questions; I do like the smaller maps, but realize sometimes too much of the same gets boring.

Good to be back; and thanks everyone for the help getting my old ID1 files dusted off and running again!

Welcome! You can type into the quake console "ping +220" to get that old school feeling... but I wouldn't recomend it.

Yeah I played since q1test but always have been "Killa" In a few clans here and there otherwise. Played pretty heavy from 1996-2002 (Then got into Return to Castle Wolfenstein) played only once a month from 2004 then not at all from 2005-2009. Started playing every other weekend late 2009 and now play every day again.

Quake for me is like checkers/chess to others. Seems to never lose its fun and easy to get in.. play a map then leave. Other games you get glued to and never can leave... I just have a short attention span I guess.

I found this old photo of Diazoild pissing in a corner on Singed. Those were great times.

I actually *JUST* mentioned you the other night on the server. You need to come out and frag! We have had some nice, busy evenings lately.
