by DGhost @ [12:58 PM] December 23 2002

Yesterday, the 22, was exactly one year since I've started posting on this webpage. Yes, time fly and your humble servant, DGhost has been here for a full year now. Congratulations to me! Go DGhost, you can do it. Okay, even if I miss some days from time to time, I will continue to give you all the informations for Quake. If you want to help, we are looking for a news poster, this position does not pay (I wish it would :) ). You love the Quake scene? Love gaming? Think you can last longer than 2 months? Send me an email to dghost@q3arena.com with the reasons why you would like this post.

Sorry for the lack of updates but I was really sick these last day, I was in bed pretty much of the time. Now I feel better. Raven Software has hired a new member to work on their project Quake 4.

He has been hired as an animator, modeler and got some experience with animation on Tiny Toons, Animaniacs. This seems weird but eh, all the guys who work (or worked) @ ID are weird anyway.
