Out of the Blue

It was 14 years ago yesterday that the QUAKE II demo was released. As an indicator of all the water that's gone under the bridge since then, here is the list of mirrors we posted for the demo at that time, almost all of which are now defunct: Local, id Software, CDROM.COM, Activision FTP West, Activision FTP East, Download.com, Gamecenter, Stomped, Brutality, AVault, Quake2.com, Gamer's Alliance, Frag.com, 3D Action Gamers.1, 3D Action Gamers.2, sCary's Shuga Shack, Ultra Game Players, QuestGate, PlanetQuake, UnrealNation, and OGR.

Demo Links: Thanks Ant and Mike Martinez and Acleacius.
Play: Vehicles 2.
Discount Mayonnaise.
GoodGame Empire.
Links: What a Network TV Budget Buys You These Days.
Stories: Iowa Couple Married for 72 Years Dies Holding Hands, 1 Hour Apart.
Lions and Tigers Shot in Ohio; Owner Freed Them.
Swiss stop smuggler carrying hundreds of tarantulas in suitcase. Thanks brother19.
Media: Impossible Videogame Freakout. NSFW.
Michael Winslow does Zep. Thanks nin.

You don't have to miss those Doom, Quake & Unreal archives though, they were moved to ftp://ftp.gamers.org/pub/ long ago.
Nice! ftp://ftp.gamers.org/pub/games/doom2/incoming/ and ftp://ftp.gamers.org/pub/games/doom/incoming/ are empty. Back in the old days, I would check daily and there were new stuff. I still see my old DOOM 2 mods from 1995! Woohoo!
Heh. Well, /pub/games/doom and /pub/games/doom2 are just symlinks to the main DOOM-engine archive /pub/idgames. But that is indeed still actively maintained by Ty Halderman of TeamTNT (since 1997!) and new uploads are processed (usually) daily into /pub/idgames/newstuff.
