Day one of Quakecon has already brough with it many memorable moments! The vendor booths are open and giving away prizes and massive swag, NVIDIA had some lucky ladies shave their heads for hardware, the tournaments have started, and much, much, more! We are having a great time, and look forward to the rest of the upcoming events!

Also, let us know what the craziest thing is that you would do in order to receive some great hardware!

how about, being 6hrs ahead of the rest of most of your readers,
waiting up untill 3am for Nate to call, then find out he just arrived in Dallas :)


Nate if your reading this! E-mail me pls earlier that day B4 calling as i'm not always home (i'm sure you have too good of a time there to think about it now!)

Anyway....

Hope you are all having a Great time !

Best of luck!!

If only I could walk on water (i'd be there)
Here's an Idea!!

LR can have a charity event!
Send 1 devoted member to quakecon?
I can be on a plane from Dublin to Dallas tonight :-P

didnt see a pic but getting your head shaved, thought it wierd that it was in the money section rather than the tech...

http://money.cnn.com/2004/08/14/comment ... mn_gaming/

Watching women play a competitive game of Quake is a bit different than watching men. The action is just as fierce, but losses aren't taken personally. And instead of insults being hurled through the in-game messaging system, you see a lot of smiley faces.


huh... some of the fem gamers I have met can be just as foul as guys...


edit - here we go.. no pic though
