This is a picture of the Shreveport lakehouse that id Software started in.  Tom took this pic of John Carmack and me while we were working on the Super Mario 3 demo for Nintendo - so this was sometime in September 1990.

You can see how nice it was outside while we were inside just coding. Heh.  The computer setup on the far table was Tom's 386/33 and a TV set hooked up to a VCR that had a videotape of Super Mario 3 freeze-framed so he could duplicate the graphics pixel-by-pixel.

The TV between John and I was hooked up to an NES so we could play SM3 and watch the movement and how things worked so we could duplicate it.

There's a whiteboard propped up with writing on it that detailed all the tasks we needed to do to finish the demo.

During this time there was a lot of summer flooding around the lake and one day I actually waded through a ton of water up to my waist to get to id to keep coding.  Lucky for me I didn't run into any snakes!
