About

Some Comments
-------------

    "Even though it offered no technical showcase.  I think The Project
    offered a production full of very incisive  and pertinent criticism
    on demos and the demoscene with a lot of humour."
                                                            -- Unkelben

    "In my opinion,  ABCDemo had  to win!  Ok,  there was  no technical
    merit,  but no  one had  technical stuff to  show anyway!!!  Do you
    think  that 3D  is technical??  Using opengl/directX  is technical?
    Visual Basic is technical?  So from that  point of view,  there was
    not a single real demo in the competition!  ABCDemo was just great,
    it was funny at least..."
