    I didn’t think that Civ: CTP was still being maintained.
    I don’t know if Activition is or not, probably not, but
    it is nice that Loki still is fixing any bugs that pop up.

    Look in that md5sum directory! If I’m reading it correctly, all the CD md5sums are in there, too. Like, sof-cd.txt, rt2-cd.txt, etc.
    There’s a tribes2-cd.txt! Does that mean what I think it means?
