Mostly Harmless

Mostly about my amusement



Must be the late nights last week

I’m wasting time with these videos today, more so than usual.  This is the video that convinced me to buy Team Fortress 2.

Quake Live Beta works now

They’ve solved the queue problem and I’ve just logged onto Quake Live beta. I had zero wait time. The game play was good.
