- Sun Nov 15 15:55:28 1998
JVE bugged me once more about the linklint errors etc.,
and I finally caved in and took care of it (thanks for
the hypermail archive fix script, John - I added you to
the credits :-).
The Q2DP project was added, and abandoned (lack of
contributions), w/o being mentioned here. Various missing
bits and pieces have been added, some dangling links been
cleaned (external links are a different matter though).
Changed top and first level mailto's, removed the forms
Some LDP 3Dfx-HOWTO's happened in February, and mid of
the year, a further update is overdue (sorry). The QuakeDev
has been put in stasis, and cleaned out recently, might
rise and shine again when Q3A is released in 1999. What
else? The linux-3dfx list is going to be scrapped, as
demand was negligible. Some exciting Quake/Java related
stuff might show up here in the next months.
- Sun Jan 26 16:20:28 1997
Missed the january 12th update, and still no changes. CVS is done,
but I am currently very busy. QDP and other updates as well as
cleanup are postponed till further note. I will announce any
updates on the quake-dev mailing list and in r.g.c.q.announce,
so no need to lurk around here.
My apologies. Do expect a major update in a non-Quake section in
about a month.

A few additions to the xf3D section, and a minor hack in
the Quake-C section: link to qccspec3.zip now in
quake/Qc/progs1.htm. Note: by now, we have an abundance
of outdated, incomplete, redundant, mixed up, or
obsolete docs not only on this site, but everywhere on
the World Wide Wait (even with the most valuable Slipgate,
it isn't fun anymore).
Expect an Attic section by January.

Moved certain "welcome.html" and "dE_home.html" to "index.html",

The manual checkin of binaries (namely, "/icons/*.gif") created
copies, which is fine with me.
- Mon May 6 11:26:17 1996
Quick and dirty port of the QuakeDev and Dreadnought pages,
