            I *think* we're currently using NSIS, for some value of "currently"? I'd have to check with the Windows maintainer...

            Quadra master server troubles
            We're having some trouble with the Quadra master server list. We're working on this at the moment, but this will require an update to Quadra itself.

            Updates will be made on our web site and to the quadra-announce mailing list as soon as everything is back in order.

            Excellent Game
            I honestly didn't like plain ol' Tetris before I found Quadra (the clones were pretty cool though, like Tetris Attack). Anyway, this is an excellent game. Nice graphics, nice sound, and very cool multiplayer. My only gripe is the game is not very stable in some areas... I sometimes had fatal crashes as I got up in the higher levels, and I thus got screwed out of setting some very good high scores. Still, for $10, you can't go wrong with Quadra. :-)
