Many thanks to all the kind people who have donated to help amigaworld reach our 700 target.

Cheers everyone!

@Mikey_C

Cool - congratulations!

(Although your post-whoring was a blatant bit of Bodie-ism )

Dunno if Christmas is the best time of year to get donations; yes, people feel more charitable, but also bank accounts tend to have been hammered quite hard... mine certainly has been

Mikey_C,

although it sounds like good news, I can't help but wonder whether or not you actually mean a Quake- and not QuakeWorld-server? Further, I'd really like to know if you will set the game rules to "Deathmatch 1" or "Deathmatch 3" (the latter ruins, in my opinion, the game altogether as weapons don't spawn. Everyone runs along with rocket launchers and shafts making all other weapons virtually useless.

/Peter

@Petah

Look mate, I am only the used car salesman,

Speak to DaveyD about what technical version of Quake we are talking about.

As for me, as long as a server for Q2 is made available, I am happy
- and yes I am crap at it

We should have more of these for various community supporting activities :)

...like this one, a Quake 2 fragfest! Just a shame the server can't run on OS4 just yet

I will take my share of frags for sure ;)

either that or toaks will get in my way!!!

Great! It's been a while since I last played Quake. Actually the last time I played was against Wouter van Oortmerssen (aka Aardappel) and his friends, he is the coder who developed the Amiga programming language AmigaE and also started the SHEEP project for the AmigaDE.

He's a huge Quake fan.

So, just a question...now that the target's been reached, what's the next target?

IOW, may want to raise the bar a bit on the donations meter, so new users don't assume 'oh, they don't need any $.

Of course, if nothing is needed (hah!), could always split donation $ between an AW sponsored code/project bounty and needs of AW staff/hardware/etc...

(and yes, I made a donation )

Well, why not an AmigaONE computer for developers ?

AmigaWorld can then lend this AmigaONE to software developers for a week or month etc. so they can port their software to OS4.
