Have GB kept the server up and running like they did with TF2?

Oh man, I really hope so. 
That's the second PC game I ever bought.  I played it in software mode.  Multiplayer through the GameSpy client.  Good times.

@Cribba: It's not as easy to do in quake 1 as say like quake 2 or 3 where there was room to move around haha

Anyone know if a mod exists where it's the usual DM, except randomly it prints out "AXE TIME!" over the whole screen and everyone is forced to use the axe for 20s.

" That was AWESOME!  Especially the end when they upped the server count to 256 or whatever.  "
… which is missing in the archived version, it cuts out right before it. Dang, I really wanted to see that. "
There is another 8 minute long archived video that shows the end.

It's super easy, even easier than Q2/3 because you can turn in the air.

Disappointed that Jeff didn't play the "Hey Piper" bass solo in the very end.

Maybe he did after the stream ended?

Hey, I have a question (or several) for everybody - please PM me if you have an answer. 
I thought that Quake still used Doom-esque movement, where up/down with the mouse made your character move up and down. How is it that the person whose screen(s) we're watching could move up and down that easily? 
And are there any other essential mods/maps/whatever I should pick up when I get this game? And if so, where are the best Quake mod sites/etc? 
Thank you so much!
