I would hope the winner would choose 'no eyes' but perhaps not.
Calling All Important People
#28 posted by Jehar on 2008/06/07 20:23:08
That means you Starbuck :D Could you get into #qexpo some time or pm me so we can discuss plans for the site?
BTW, news for everybody:
This is still going on track, and yesterday I spent the day with LordHavoc and scar3crow (in Eugene no less) discussing some qexpo possibilities. One thing that came up was the revitalization and printing of the Brushwork art book project. There's no shortage of material, and printing a limited run these days is pretty cheap. They'd make good prizes, no?
When Exactly Is This?

Hey dude, consider me officially called. I like being called important too. Maybe I should get a top hat.
I'm definitely still up for helping out with the site... How about you send me an email and we can get chatting about what kind of style you'd like to go for? I could do IRC instead if you prefer, but it'll be a bit more difficult, I'm a bit busy at the mo and we're probably in different timezines, heh. Cheers!

I was expecting july and I want to have one map ready (I have several near completion) but I just don't feel like mapping much lately. August should give me enough time to get one of them finished at least.

Where oh where has Starbuck gone? I've left him emails, snuck around his house at night, and have been fawning over his picture in the high school yearbook. But he's not returning my calls :(
Heh. You there man?

Any luck finding him?
Do you have any update on whether or not the site will be ready? ;)
#37 posted by Jehar on 2008/07/11 00:14:43
I'll go ahead and paste the relevant snippets from his email:
"sorry about being MIA, I'm not actually dead, but I'm ridiculously busy right now. I'd still like to help, but I can't guarantee to have any free time in the next few days unfortunately. Currently I'm stuck in iceland with no real internet connection, and some rather intense project milestones to meet by friday back in the UK. Yeah I know, cry me a river.
Also, I hope you know I'm not much help to you with the backend coding side of things... my expertise is in graphic/web design, I'd be wasting both of our time doing database stuff. But hey, if you want some pretty templates done I'm your man!"
I let him know that graphic-wise, we'll probably simply modify some of the previous sites - provided we can get access from theplanet (or even calling Echon). We're still on :D

Rough patch there :(

Admittedly I heat up quickly, especially if the circumstances are encouraging (looking at no one in particular here), but let's say I undrama and get no additional shit for anything, then I could have a map ready. Deal?
I'm probably away for some time, between August 02 and 16th or 18th or something. I could finish it this week and then someone else could post it or I could deliver at the end of the expo.
-Expo end date
-someone to make a bunch of screenies that aren't too dark
-perhaps someone with a fast machine to help with VISing the final map
-a few playtesters again (OK Sielwolf? Neg!ke?)
good karma to Than :-/

Always busy at least for the next few maps, so much unfinished stuff. I do civil service at the ambulance (instead military service)
