UPDATE! The time has come. EnterTheGame has been a great IRC host for us over the 10+ years but we've had several outages and no updates from the official #etg channel. In anticipation of the fall of ETG, I created a channel for us on QuakeNet back in 2015 which is a huge IRC network with updated tools, advance self-administration features, and even a built in web client. I (and others, likely) will still hang out on both ETG as well as QuakeNet, but QuakeNet will be our new home. It's a huge network with over 20,000 channels and has been very reliable for me. Our experimentation with "Discord" also continues and Animal has coded a proxy bot that relays messages back and forth from Discord to IRC. Good stuff.

Yeah, that's right... look at the date. Believe it.

If I did it right, you didn't notice, but I've moved the entire site to a different hosting provider. There's a long story behind it I won't bore you with, suffice it to say this has been a long time coming. :-)

If you're an old member or remember us from back in the day, you can find us in the #clan_muppet channel on irc.enterthegame.com (UPDATE: now irc.quakenet.org)... Most of us have been playing a bit of Quake Live and we're still doing annual LANs in the Dallas area, so stop on by and give us a shout.

Zounds! Happy 11th anniversary everyone!

This year, Yoda is being kind enough to host our 11th anniversary LAN at his place.

Ten (10!) years ago today I received emails from Bear at id Software and Will Bryant at Clanring saying that the Muppets (http://www.muppetclan.com) were added to their respective clan listings. The Muppets were id Software's 16th official clan and Clanring's 43rd official clan. (A brief history of clan gaming (written by Jeremy "Lindril" Degroat) is available at http://www.muppetclan.com/history.)

We'll be celebrating our birthday by generally going nuts in our IRC channel (#clan_muppet on EnterTheGame) with a private LAN party planned for later in the year.

So yeah... coming up on the big decade of muppetdom. :-)

Talks of a 10th anniversary LAN are in the works. Come to the #clan_muppet channel on irc.enterthegame.com to find out more!

In personal news, I'm almost done with my MAME Cabinet! w00t!

Love always,

Holy robo-monkeys! 9 years ago today, the Muppet Clan was born! *bounce*

And now for our yearly update. A few of us (er... Mumford) are playing EQ still with a few others playing World of Warcraft. As far as FPS's go, we're testing the waters with Battlefield 2, but are always up for a good game of Quake. :-)

Talks of a 9th anniversary LAN are still in the works. Stay tuned . . .

As always, you can find us in the #clan_muppet channel on irc.enterthegame.com

Love always,

Holy cow! 8 years ago today, the Muppet Clan was born!

Since the news hasn't been updated in awhile, here's the low-down. A few of us are playing EQ still (dabbling in Star Wars Galaxies) with eyes on WoW and EQ2. Many of us are playing Unreal Tournament 2004 with our eyes on Half-Life 2 and Doom ]|[. Finally, almost all of us are playing IRC working our way up the chat/idle ladder tourney. :-)

5 years ago today Waldorf got emails from Bear at id Software and Will Bryant at Clanring saying that the Muppets (http://www.muppetclan.com) were added to their respective clan listings. The Muppets were id Software's 16th official clan and Clanring's 43rd official clan. (A bit of general history of clan gaming (written by Jeremy "Lindril" Degroat, with some additions by Waldorf) is available at http://www.muppetclan.com/history.)

We'll be celebrating our birthday with a private LAN party this weekend where 29 Muppets (and "near Muppets") from all over the US will be getting together at Waldorf's home in Dallas, TX. (Last years' LAN party at Dr Bunsen's had 24 people, with 10 of them coming from 2 or more states away.)

One quick item of note: I worked with Joe Bravo last night to arrange a method for the IRC channel stats to be updated regularly and hosted on the site. You can view the stats HERE. Looking for a place to link them now.

Lots of updates! First of all, there's a new splash image on the front page that shows most of our logos over the past 5 years. Pretty soon, I'll make a separate page with the full-sized images and a bit of history on each one.

Second of all, I've added a long-forgotten ClanRing history page that talks about how this whole crazy mess got started. Special thanks to Lindril for putting this together back then, and I've also added a section at the bottom about our place in Tournament III, including a demo of the famed Muppets vs. Death Row match.

Third of all, the 5th anniversary LAN is fast-approaching, so I've put together a sign-up form you can find under the members only section and on the message board.

Woo... got the new house in Dallas, TX... I call it Dorf Keep.

Pretty soon, things should settle down a bit and I can get back into the online gaming thing. However, we still have the painters, security system guys, etc.. all at the keep doin' their thing, plus more unpacking to do, so it's been pretty busy.

This picture was taken in an alley of New York City. Not sure what the guy has against me, but it's pretty funny nonetheless.

In EQ news, Dekaf went on a 'my wife isn't at home' leveling spree and gained about 15 levels while I was in the process of moving. : ) Also added a EQ forum to the muppet message board.

November 30th, 2000 (Thursday) 10:12 a.m.
I'm starting to think I should update this more often. : )
Anyways, we bid a sad farewell to one of our Canadian muppets, Kinslayer, as he moves to Death Jesters. Good luck, man... you'll be missed!

In other news, Florida still can't count. In yet other news, MC|Robin and I may be getting an offer on our house in Mississippi pretty soon, which means we should officially move our residence to Dallas, TX around Christmas. WOooHoOo!

Rumor has it that Moldavia Draghonetti may be on the prowl, so be sure to re-add him to your /friends list. : )

If Rizzo is reading this, or if anyone knows how to get in touch with him, please let me know. His real name is "Scott Dakus" and the last time I talked to him, he was living in Alberta.

Wowowoo... Lots of news on the QuakeWorld Clan Arena side of things! Sephiroth (old school muppet friend and former junior) is now officially back on the scene and back in the clan! Same thing with Bones. Although he never left the clan, we haven't seen him own us in qw in quite some time, but he brought back the memories last night!

A big congrats goes out to Azrael, Navy, and D who are now officially promoted to MC2!

Also, under the 'members only' section, I added a new forum to the message board for the QuakeWorld Clan Arena squad.

September 18, 2000 (Monday) 10:15 p.m.
We had a great turnout tonight for the new QuakeWorld Clan Arena squad... A log can be found HERE in our members-only section, but to sum up, we went over how the meetings will be held, strategies, practices (Tues and Thurs at 8pmCST), and general server etiquette issues...

July 6, 2000 (Sunday) 10:15 p.m.
Updated the members page. This is just a rough draft to let everyone know who I know about and more importantly, who I don't know about. Please Mail me if you're name isn't on the page. Thanks!

As you may have noticed, a couple of things are different. *smile*

The Muppet Clan, founded in 1996, is still alive and going strong. While it looks like we have moved on from the QuakeWorld scene, most of us are neck-deep in EverQuest and we're also planning a triumphant return to the world of Quake with a new Quake III Arena Team! You can find us on irc.enterthegame.com in the #clan_muppet channel. Check back soon for more info.
