    so tribes, you think, was written in the 1970s in basic on an apple ii, then
    held in a warehouse for 27 years untill it was released in 1998 to the acclaim
    of multiple 'game of the year' awards... hmmm.... also, you realize tribes is
    an open source game, so if you know anything at all about programing look at
    the code to disprove your own moronic theorys....
