R2K: A Quake 3 Blog
Saturday, January 29, 2011



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:

Sundry items:

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.

Pensacola Christian College


"PCC is open about its strict policies regarding student conduct. The school sends a booklet to students before they arrive every year, titled "Things To Know Before You Arrive." The basics of the school's policies and philosophies are laid out for students and parents to review before traveling to the school.

The college maintains, "attendance at PCC is a privilege not a right." This phrase is printed in all of PCC's administration and registration publications including course catalogs, student handbooks, and information sent out to prospective students regarding attendance at PCC.
Regulations govern many aspects of the residence hall students' lives, including dress, hairstyles, cleanliness of residence hall rooms, styles of music (PCC only permits its students to listen to classical music, traditional Christian music or Sacred music), borrowing, off-campus employment, and internet access.

PCC also has strict policies regarding mixed-gender interaction. Physical contact between members of the opposite sex is only permitted under very limited circumstances. Written permission of the dean’s office must be procured for all off-campus meetings between members of the opposite sex. In addition, all mixed-gender meetings (on and off-campus), must have a PCC chaperone present.[7] Most stairwells and elevators on campus are segregated by gender. In the absence of being able to have physical contact, a fad has developed among dating students on campus where couples stare deeply into each other’s eyes. This practice by students is variously called "eye kissing", or "optical intercourse" and is jokingly called "making eye babies."[7] However, this activity is discouraged by the administration.

Other violations of PCC policy include the use of language considered profane or foul by the college administration, visiting movie theaters, patronizing unauthorized area businesses, being off campus after hours and being in another residence hall room after hours. Additionally, being in a residence hall belonging to a member of the opposite sex, the use of alcohol, or tobacco products, gambling, possession or use of pornography, engaging in any form of pre-marital sexual activity or any other actions considered by the college to be immoral, and engaging in social activities with members of the opposite sex as a group while off campus can result in immediate dismissal. The administration of PCC also reviews any reports brought to their attention of students behaving in a manner unbecoming of PCC ideals who are at home or away on school breaks while enrolled at the college.[13]"
