Because my dream of becoming a pro quake 3 player has come true, and the wealth associated with that has left me unwilling to do anything that doesn't involve caviar and alabaster bathtubs of champagne, R2K a quake 3 blog will no longer update for a duration of not less than 1 year. And possibly as long as infinity. Now that we are in a new decade (thanks in large part to the stewardship provided by this web page during the worst of the Bush years), it is time to move on to new media such as apps, vlogs, podcasts, telegraphs, holograms, and the kind of brain porn they used in the film "Strange days."
To my loyal reader and a half, I am sorry to leave you short on the AZN images and videos of things blowing up. Posting will continue at High Power Rocketry. (Where things do blow up, from time to time.)
Here are some excellent web pages that offer comparable content, typically at a higher post rate and better quality:
Please visit the archives below if you are interested in previous R2K posts. There have been about 1380 posts since September 2004. Much has changed since then. For example, in post number one I began this blog with the following prescient statement:
"Whats really good? This is my page, something free to use or not, to fool around with or not...
I just have been looking into free things from Google.com (not worth 75 bucks a share, but still a pretty nice company)."
First of all, in 2004 it was considered polite and formally appropriate to greet people by saying "What's really good." This was before the "no homo" movement took over, and well before the "smell you later" trend of '07. Also note how valuable my investment advice has been as google is now trading for $600 a share.
So for all of us here at the R2K team, to all of you out there (mostly those showing up by accident while searching for azn prn), smell ya later.
