hehe...hey, if you want and can find someone to host a mirror site for
Gundam Century I'd be happy to work something out with you. There have
been a lot of complaints about slow downloads...afterall, GC's site is
being hosted by Gamespot Germany right now so there's only one server
technically catering to people's needs. When one has people from around
the world trying to download it at the same time, it doesn't help. :)

I liked CCA more so than Zeta Gundam as the latter didn't feel "right".
Though I was sorta impressed by the fact that it felt more like the mobile
suit was floating/flying around rather than the kinda linear control system
in CCA. Gamespot bashed Diablo 2 so don't always listen to them..even
though they are my host. :)

Yeah I was thinking Quake at one time. Still, there are several engines I
can pick from...I'll have to take the best one. But I don't want to make
another "Shogo" you know what I mean?

Actually Bill Gates' neck is on the line right now with the anti trust
court case. I heard the judges are reaching the final verdict and let's
just say for him, it doesn't look good. Nasdaq's stocks including MS'
stocks are plummeting like nuts and Bill Gates is biting his nails.

Thanks, I'll need all the help I can get. =)
