    Har!! Whoever gets into this competition, it is your divine duty as h4x1n cr4x0r to tar and bzip2 the elusive Doom3 special-multiplayer-edition and send it to a local FTP server or Gnutella network and notify I, Captain Alpha. It pains me that ID Software Inc is capable of keeping things like Doom3 not slipping between their sweating palms!

    Har, Har, Har! Now shove off and bring back the bounty, you pickled scurvey warts!
