11/1999 iCE Pack
2. eTantrum, Inc., co-founded by our very own Farmicus, has been gobbling up iCE members and whisking them off to the corporate world. Rumor has it that Lord Soth, Greater Evil, and Jamie McCarter have all joined the team with Mr. Mister, bringing the total casualties to five. When will the madness stop? Post-IPO, we hope.
3. Update: for those interested, the iCE Thought Police recently caught up up to Steven Stahlberg, now working for Digital Anvil. What's he been doing recently, you may ask? You can see some of his handiwork in the intro cinematic for "Quake 3:Arena", recently released by id Software. Steven designed the "thugs", did the textures for Sarge, created all of the explosions and muzzle flashes, and did some other animations, such as the falling cigar at the end. Steven Stahlberg is officially awarded the "Best Swedish 3D Animator Working on Quake 3: Arena to come from Hong Kong to Texas." The competition was fierce, but he ended up taking the prize.
4. Obviously this was a quiet month, but we're still recovering from the whole lemon fiasco. Don't worry, we'll be back in a big way to kick off 2000 (which is NOT in the next century or millenium)! Have a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, a Super Kwankaa, or just an enjoyable winter solstice!
5. Although we want to make an impression, don't wait up through the power outages, alien invasions, mass rioting, accidental FBI assassinations, exponential function growth, buffer overflows, massive fungus growth, moist socks, terrorist attacks, world-wide drunkenness, and also y2k glitches to deliver you your pack at midnight on New Years Eve. Well, also nobody volunteered to be sober enough to do it.
