# Perl meets Quake III

Ok. One week ago I was told that matches on our local Quake3 servers resumed. Rumor said that even TDM is played again. I haven’t been invited once for the whole week (suckers are afraid of me :)), which got me really pissed off. Perl Monks once again proved to be very helpful, so I’ve got myself a new perl script that sends me an SMS once someone joins the server. If you need one, you can use Quake3 Monitor as I did to construct something appropriate for your environment.

Three hours later I was warming up and then had a couple of nice FFAs. We even started TDM, but two out of total five people (freefrags) left the server in the middle of it. Still, we had lots of fun!
