Out of the Blue

QuakeCon 2018 is underway down in Texas. As usual, I'm not there, as it's been many years since I attended, but I also have my usual regrets about missing out. Of course the nature of the event and id Software has changed a lot since my last QuakeCon, so I doubt my nostalgia for the gathering has much to do with the current reality. Either way, here's a hello to old friends who are at the show, here's hoping you have a fine-old time, and that the waits at Denny's are reasonable. Oh, and for the record, as I write these words, it is hotter in New York City than it is in Dallas.
