Update for the new year: Quit smoking, moved (again), cut all my hair off, fixed up Q3Map a spot, and been working on RtCW for PlayStation 2 and XBox.

The mail server is back up, so everything should be slagtastic.

Went to a major league baseball game for the first time in a decade last night. Was reminded several times why the I haven’t been going. Maybe by 2011 the (admittedly a minority) overzealous asshole fans will have grown up and I can enjoy a game again...
