-in the CPMA mod, there's an error message that only comes up in
CTF mode, and seems to only come up on certain installs:
"Fatal: AAS_EntityInfo: entnum -1 out of range" Arqon
(resident CPMA coder and minor deity) was unable to repro the
error, so if you get it, sorry. Doesn't seem to affect gameplay . . .

"Thermodynamic miracles... events with odds against so astronomical they're effectively
impossible, like oxygen spontaneously becoming gold. I long to observe such a thing.

And yet, in each human coupling, a thousand million sperm vie for a single egg. Multiply
those odds by countless generations, against the odds of your ancestors being alive;
meeting; siring this precise son; that exact daughter... Until your mother loves a man
she has every reason to hate, and of that union, of the thousand million children competing
for fertilization, it was you, only you, that emerged. To distill so specific a form from
that chaos of improbability, like turning air to gold... that is the crowning unlikelihood.
The thermodynamic miracle.

But the world is so full of people, so crowded with these miracles that they become
commonplace and we forget. We gaze continually at the world and it grows dull in our
perceptions. Yet seen from another's vantage point, as if new, it may still take the breath

Come, dry your eyes, for you are life, rarer than a quark and unpredictable beyond the
dreams of Heisenberg; the clay in which the forces that shape all things leave their
fingerprints most clearly."

-- Dr. Manhattan, in Alan Moore's Watchmen
