Carmack Working Ahead

Official Armadillo Q&A thread on the X-Prize Forums (thanks Redwood) features the id Software lead programmer outlining the status of his team of hobbyist rocketeers. Along the way he describes the balance of how he can divide his time between spaceflight and game design by admitting he's already working on some new tech for their next game:

Id vs Armadillo:
I am working on the rendering technology for the next game right now, so it looks like the balance will stay about the same for a while at least.

Yes, Carmack has previously said he was tired of the work load and looking towards moving on once Doom 3 came out.

Hopefully he's changed his mind.

Well, this is the guy who brought a workstation on his honeymoon. I have a hard time imagining him ever giving up programming for good.

Carmack's a flip-flopper! You can't tell where he is on the issues!
