Lifestyles of the not so rich and not so famous.
Hello again! I just found an interesting article on eSports:
The CPL is celebrating its 4-year anniversary with a $20,000 QuakeWorld 1v1 tournament. I know a lot of people are enjoying some retro Quake in both the NQ/QW and Q2 fashion as some people have grown bored of Q3 but I don't think that having a QW tourney best represents the current gaming scene or showcases any of the players that are currently out there. I would say that this Should be considered a "Fun Tourney" as many of the top QW players have moved on to other things like other games and/or have quit quake and the gaming scene all together. This is a great example of where CPL is following the crowd and trying to be popular/trendy and not trying to lead and grow the gaming scene. CAL is an excellent example of an event/tournament that drove many clans to a higher level of competition and drew the CTF community closer together.
Last Nights Affliction STA Match.
Opps...seemed I had my story mixed up lastnight...
Where I was yesterday...
How the pro's do it.
This is a PunkBusters log that was used to look up an alias on IRC to find out the real nick:
Recoil from PM had this problem last night and no one knew why...maybe the answer lies HERE!
CAL Playoffs update.
Well after waiting 2 weeks for PM to get around to playing us we got things on the road and played last night. We finally decided on a server where everyone seemed to ping well and started to play game one. Well about half way into the game the server started to freak out a little and everyones connection got a bit of the "CHOP". I played in the game and can say that both sides had it bad and that the outcome was more of hard work than some wierd lag fluke. We beat PM on our pick Q3WCTF1 1-0. The winning cap was an amazing RJ jump to the flag lukin made as the enemy grabbed ours where lukin rained RL's as he was coming down and returned/capped. Game2 was on W3 and wasn't as close. 7-0 was the final on that game. Again some server lag and connection issues. After game2 we decided that game3 wasn't going to happen and have rescheduled for either Thursday or Tuesday. << Game1 - Game2 >>
The webserver got a hd upgrade in the way of a Promise FastTrack ATA100 IDE RAID controller card and 2 60gig drives (Maxtors at 137$ a piece). Needless to say the server is rocking!
Saw over in #clan_gi's topic that gi|rebel has retired from gi and quake3 all together...DOH! A great guy the CTF community will certainly miss...
Turbo goat megaz0r!
O M G what an incredible night we had last night. Not only did Montrey join, but Golem got Roger Wilco working, we played five games with affliction, we had an interclan scrim (OMG I know), and glide showed up on IRC! Message me on irc if you want to see the screenshots of glide using IRC or eight KI on one server all at the same time.
After over a year of flirting and making eyes for each other, Montrey has accepted an invitation to join KI. Montrey in his spare time likes romantic walks on the beach and interesting and intimate conversations involving exciting and stimulating URL's!
As a younger lad (mid 80's) I collected comics. Mostly the Marvel mutant variety. Some of the movies coming out bassed off of comics were ones that I collected and followed. Like Xmen, Incredible Hulk and Spiderman. One that I also followed as everyone at the time did was Teenage Mutant Ninja Turltes (TMNT). It was a black and white comic done by I believe 2 college students. It wasn't anything like todays version in that it was dark and violent. Below is a link talking about comics and upcoming movies...it seems John Woo is doing a TMNT that is true to the comic:
So here we are again, another day another dollar another way another walrus. What? Anyways, we played our OGL and STA matches tonight, tight schedule indeed.
This is a quick little message post that goes over some performance tweaks and tips for Win2k.
FINALLY pro has accepted an invitation to join KI, and he's one of us now, woohoo! Hopefully we can play the video games with him and his ping will not approach the level which is known as high ping bastard (HPB for short).
Wand's little web page.
Before retiring Wand put this page together...OMG! A lot of clans used to play CTF4 like mad before finding an even GAYER CTF level...CTF1. Check out and download the crazy ass jump demo's...
PR IS OUT!
Finally...let the beta's BEGIN!
Yay! More News...
The wheels of time just keep on turning and the KI machine just keeps on churning. Last night we played Recreational Malice(rm) for our first ever STA match, and we came out victorious in both games. This win should put us in a tie for 7th place, overall. Everyone had a lot of fun and played extremely well. Great games rm.
And now the fake news...
We played our weekly OGL match against Quake 3 Bastards last night. A few server problems provided obstacles and miscellaneous connection problems, but things eventually got rolling. We were definately taken by suprise and did not expect a dramatic turn around in gameplay after the first map. Q3B managed to pull it off and win the second and third maps, giving them the overall win.

YES. I now control the horizontal as well as the vertical. This is my first post, SEX MOCHINE.
Little good...a little bad. The bad was what happened tuesday with our CAL match, the good was finding out fort was interested in joining. After a few days the deal was done and fort has joined!
This is a VERY interesting article that's been floating...take a look at it:
CAL Week 7.
Well after some delays getting started because of some difficulties gi had getting a forth due to some real world stuff, which we were cool with it, we played out week 7 game. The first game was q3wctf2 which was gi's choice. They came out blazing and never looked back. With strong offensive pressure and good teamwork and Bison holding down their flag they were able to win 5-1. The second game was q2wctf1 which was our pick. I'm not sure how the game went as I never left base :>. This game ended up in a tie 0-0 with both teams making good efforts at scoring but the flag d and some bad luck (aka the pit :) preventing either team from scoring. The third game, as it has haunted us for much of CAL, showed it's head again with a lose of 9-1. gi played aggressive and leveraged it's flag runs with controlling and getting the middle quad. Both teams played great games...too bad there can't be 2 winners :>
