In real life, I use AutoCad to design granite & marble furniture products. In the summer of 2005 I stumbled into taking over my favorite Q3 mod (Western Quake 3) when development by the original team ceased & the website was about to expire. This game is a team effort built on a foundation created by Iron Claw Interactive. Several coders, level designers & a website developer from all over the world joined my efforts. (The team members hail from Germany, Norway, France, USA, & are all great guys!) I managed to learn level design so that I could be useful beyond the scope of a public relations person & I picked up a few other game related skills along the way. After several years of making improvements to WQ3, we released a Stand Alone version known as "Smokin' Guns" on January 1st 2009. Development continues & a very meaty version 1.1 should be available soon.

The website www.smokin-guns.net is down due to internal issues folks. Great. This is all we need 2 weeks before the planned release of the Stand Alone. I'll post here again when I have more info, but I think the time has come to stretch somebody's neck & move on.
EDIT: Website issues are HOPEFULLY over. Stand-alone target release date is 12/31/08
Make sure yer fully loaded if you see me on the servers. I know I will be.
