Planet Celebrates Three Years
(10/1/2002) V Planet's three years
old, making the first 100% QuickBasic Game Review site one of the longest
running active QB sites in the business.
After three long years, V Planet
has done one of the rare things among QB sites, and that's to remain active
for three years since it's launch back in September 23, 1999. And with
that, we've run out of ideas on how to commemorate this benchmark.
of dragging on about how updating for three years was a long and arduous
task, instead we decided to recognize some of the great three-peats of
the modern era. In no way is this an attempt to compare significantly different
levels of acheivement; rather, once again we've run out of ideas, and perhaps
this is the best way to symbolize the thanks the V Planet staff has for
all the gamers and programmers who visit our site. The QB community has
been very good to us and we can't thank you enough for your readership

The Los Angeles Lakers
After defeating the New Jersey Nets on
a rather anti-climactic but satisfying note, the Los Angeles Lakers completed
the three-peat, thereby cementing their reputation as one of the great
NBA dynasties. The recurring cast of characters in this lineup include
O' Neal, the dominant force and MVP behind all of this modern Laker
team's Championship runs.

After winning the Bay Hill Invitational
in 2002, Tiger Woods became the first player in professional golf to win
three different events in three years, putting the 26-year old golfer in
a league among champions. Tiger's achievements in golf through 2001 has
given him career earnings beyond the $32 million mark, excluding endorsements.

After an exciting home-run race with the
now reitred heavy-hitter Mark MacGwire, Sammy Sosa continued his
hot homerun streak on the Chicago Cubs by becoming the only player in the
game to hit 50 or more homeruns for three years in a row. And with that,
"Slammin'" Sammy Sosa proved that lightning can strike thrice on the field.
We Need Sleep
And now, for a more accurate representation
of how we feel after working on V Planet for three years, all you need
to do is take a look at the picture above, of Australian Open fans taking
a snooze in line to make sure they get good seats. These people aren't
athletes, and they sure don't fit the three-peat theme of this article,
but they're determined to tough it out even if it means being deprived
of sleep, and that's what working on a website is all about.
