Quake Live Is Very Popular

Late last night, 'round 11:45, I was finishing some work and decided to check out Quake Live, id's browser version of its 13-year-old first-person shoot-'em-up franchise. Local company aside, I used to dig Quake back in June of '96. Took but a second to register, but, as you can see, there was a long line -- and, I don't know about you, but I draw the line at 5,000. Actually, it whittled to nothing in no time, by which time I realized I was 40 and tired and called it a Wednesday morning. Went back for a peek this a.m., and it was down altogether with a "will return shortly" message. So, anyone? Any good?
