Embarrassing Q3A notes

While cleaning out old stuff in my apartment, I came across some notes I wrote while bored at a user interface conference way back in early 2000. The notes are about (cringe) how to beat *bots* in the single-player mode of *Quake 3 Arena*. Essentially, this reminds me of just how appalling I was at the game back then, if beating those bots required any real effort.
