Unfortunately it was Last Updated 10/18/97 and Travis had this to say about his page:
"I am sorry for the lack of updates in the past few months. I've been busy with school and the such.
I do realize that there still is some interest in a Marathon Map of the Month. I would like this page to continue, and although I have not lost interest in Marathon, many mac gamers out there have, so I just don't see much point to updating this page anymore. If any of you out there feel like taking the responsibility of moderating this page, drop me a line at email@example.com."
The page isn't dead yet... but it's getting there!
