New Annual LAN Event?
« on: October 13, 2009, 01:03:11 PM »
Hey guys.  I've been watching the site pretty steadily for several months now, wondering when another large LAN event is being scheduled.  Is there currently one in the works or will it still be a while?  I see the test sandbox for signing up has been around for a few weeks.  I keep wondering if it is to prepare for the new event, if there is one.

I'm sure Mr. Tibbs is looking forward to see what the custom case looks like now.

Were you the one holding the case together with rubber bands?

No that wasn't him, it was his friend Devastator who I met at the 160. And who was playing WOW when everyone was packing up.

Devastator is my roommate, and yes he is the one who won the case because he decided to be ghetho and use rubber bands and three kinds of tape to hold wires together and cover open PCI slots below the motherboard faceplate right before we left to go to the LAN.

I see the monthly event up on the front page, is that the event I was told was "very soon" by Czar?  I was wondering about a larger annual event like the 150 man LAN.

If you can make it out the monthly it is always a good time. I don't know where you reside but we have people come from parts of State College just to come down and play a few games. The last monthly we had was way back in April, right after the last annual lan. So it has been long enough. I would like to see what your roommate did with the case. You got a couple of weeks to make up your mind. :)

In case anyone missed it, check out the home page. Signups for the big one are open.

There it is!  I'm curious, if this LAN is going to be bigger then before (we were in the Holiday Inn ballroom), then how are going to bit the extra 50 peeps?  The event says they have more space.  Maybe we'll be spilt betwee the two ballrooms?

Devastator and I live in Odenton, Maryland.  We're fairly close to Baltimore City, it was about a two hour drive to get to the LAN in Mechanicsburg, that's why we don't really show up for the monthlys.  We both have women in our lives now so we stay busy on the weekends.... but I'm sure I can weasel myself out of just one weekend.

The case is actually still in storage right now, still in the box and untarnished.  We're generally tight on money so Devastator hasn't bought new parts yet.  He's considering buying the core of my system (CPU, Motherboard, Memory), which would be a large upgrade for him as it was almost top of the line when purchased in April 2007.  We both bought Windows 7 64 bit OEM during the pre-orders and we plan to use it once we both upgrade our machines.  We won't make use of the new case until he has a new set of parts to put in it because the OEM is tied to the hardware.  I'm fairly certain that will be done before the LAN, so everyone will get to see what we've done with it.  I know Chris (Devastator) would like to mod the case, but I am inexperienced with handling water cooling and crafting in general.  We'll figure something out to surprise everyone.

yes, they opened the dividers between the 2 other rooms and we have 3 total but it'll be more like 1 giant room.
