My Email from John Carmack *WITH PIC OF EMAIL*
 
I didn't think it was real for a few moments, as I stared in utter awe at my inbox, but there, sitting, was an email, from John Carmack, Technical Director and co-founder of id-software.

Here's what his reply to my email was....

"I have never said that I am planning on retiring, just that I felt it might get less interesting in a couple years. I could be wrong about that.

Right now, I am having the best time programming that I have had in years.

John Carmack"

So it looks like he wasn't really planning on retiring after all :)

Discuss!

Wow... very good news. But isn't it nearly explicitly said in some interview? I must say I'm confused, now.

Well, this is from Carmack himself, and not some interpretation by a CNN reporter, so i'd trust this :)


I am extremely glad that hes not planning on leaving and that hes actually HAVING A GOOD TIME programming the next engine :) :) :) :)

Yay! More OpenGL engines to come!

Excuse my ignorance, but how do i take a pic. of the header and the other stuff needed to prove to you guys this aint a spoof?

Also, I emailed him first at his email address and then he responded.

Also, please don't send him irrelevant questions, because he's REALLY busy.

how about taking a screenshot for the e-mail .. its like when you take a screenshot for your desktop using the print screen key or using an screen capture program . its easy .
or any other good proof you can provide . dont get me wrong but everyone else can claim that he recieved an e-mail from JC ...
