Quake Live still doing fine without us

The Quake Live Beta went...well, live on February 24. As Craig (and everyone else) reported earlier, the line was rather long. Those wanting their free, browser-based fragging will have to stand in line like everyone else.

I entered the queue three minutes holding a ticket that read 3,000; at time of writing, I am No. 1973. This is acceptable. It's 7 p.m. on the Eastern seaboard, and while those with lives are grooming themselves for a night out, many without are stressing id's servers. This isn't the worst I've seen it, but it's by no means terrible.

I'm reading Robert Penn Warren's "All The King's Men" while the number ticks down. Oh, and grooming myself for a night out. Suckers.
