At the moment, pages are written in "markdown" syntax.

Briefly: three or more dashes on a single line are turned into a horizontal rule; Quote someone by prefixing text with '>'; Get a monospace font by prefixing lines with four or more spaces; stick email or web addresses inside angle-brackets (< and >) to auto-link it; prefix lines by asterisks to turn them into bullet-points.

In response to Anonymous asking how Carmack chose the numbers in the table: he got help from a physics lab which generated true random numbers for him using quantum effects. No pseudorandom numbers would do. The numbers only look constant to you because of wave collapse, but there are actually a combinatorial number of versions of each of us, each playing a different version of Doom. It's those thoughtful details that make him so great.
