My head is in the gutter.

Marathon Forg Fest
Don't forget to log into hotline on Saturday for some kick a55 multiplayer Marathon deathmatches. They are held every Saturday night! And I quote the Battle Cat:

"Hey what are you doing Saturday night? If you are a latent geek or even full flown nerds like us then you are dusting the transistors in your new video card for an all out assault in a net game of Marathon. Sure your girlfriend is climbing all over you for attention but just stand up for your Manly Rights of Manhood and shove her out the door with the sole of your combat boot. (If you are a girl and reading this, don't let the bum treat you like that! Call 555-battlecat for the one-on-one attention that you DESERVE!)

Forerunners.org and Cortana.org are proud to announce the Saturday night Marathon Forg Fest. Use your Hotline or Frogblast client to log onto hl.forerunners.org or hl.cortana.org and join in on the fun. It's all free and anyone can join in on the fun, you don't even need to own Marathon anymore. We are using the latest nightly builds of Aleph One to play net and coop games via the internet. If you have a fast connection you can host if you wish, but if not, others can host a game for you. If you are not sure you know how to get set up, there are plenty of friendly people there to walk you through it. There is a butt load of fun to be had as evidenced by the last few weeks. Come for the carnage, stay for the funerals!"
