Name: Dave Kirsch
Description: Ports
Feb 25th/2000

In September of 1996, I made a small modification to the popular id Software
game Quake and called it ThreeWave Capture the Flag. That simple
modification grew into the last three and a half years of working with
id Software and the Quake community. The job that id Software gave me
over this period has been very rewarding. It has also been a lot of fun.
I have enjoyed watching the community grow. I was also overwhelmed at
having been able to work on a series of some of the most amazing games ever
created. But, like all good things, it must come to an end.

I feel that I have learned a lot in my time with id, but I find myself
looking for new challenges. I have decided that in order to pursue them,
I must leave my association with id Software. Having done so, I plan
on exploring new opportunities.

My contract with id terminates at the end of this month (Feb). My address will probably stop forwarding to my permanent
address shortly after that. My permanent address is
for people that wish to reach me.

I would like to thank id Software (and especially John Carmack) for giving
me such great opportunities, and allowing me to work with all the talented
people there. I am going to miss it.

In March, I will begin a new position at Retro Studios,
I look forward to joining the team there and working on some exciting new

So long and thanks for all the captures.
