    This thread is for discussing planning and preperation for the outdoor LAN in order to host computer games. I will start off a list of supplies and assets specifficaly for this portion of the event. If you have any of these, make it known here. If I have overlooked anything, make a suggestion.

    Items Needed
    * at least 2 Large Overhead Covers (gamming area and video viewing)
    * 1 Small Overhead Cover (sign IN/OUT station with info. about FanForce Acadiana)
    * Barriers (I will discuss perimeter dimensions later)
    * folding tables
    * BYOC (bring your own chair)
    * at least two, maybe three
    * power coards and multi-outlet strips
    * Server (hardware)
    * PC Games w/ server capability (Battlefront, Jedi Outcast/Academy, Galactic Battlegrounds, etc.)
    * Large TV
    * DVD Player
    * Dedicated computer for playing FanFilms and Name That Species (Power Point GAME)
    * Someone to be responsible for makeing this work. (This can be more than one person. Volunteer PLEASE.)

    In the case of bad weather, we should make plans to store equipment in a vehicle or have covers standing by to protect them. UNPLUG is important.

    Keep in mind that this all needs to be tested ahead of time. I am thinking, May 12th.

    Even though I wont be able to participate I will still help. I can bring a dvd player and a couple of SW games. I know where Jedi Academy is and I might be able to find Jedi Outcast as well.

    Sweet! And to think I was beginning to panic! Friday, I am going to dedicate the day to rounding up stuff too. Also, I will ask for Mon. and Tues. of next week off. That will give me Mon. - Thurs. to work on this.

    As for all of the computer equipment, you going to do a test run with a generator? If not with a generator, at least hook it all up and test.

    Finally, I was thinkin' we should be able to supply some long CAT-5 drops if possible. I suppose we won't really know everything we need until we get on site.

    It will all be tested beforhand the PC for the server is being built and configured just for this occasion. i'll make setup as easy as i can but i wont be able to be there during the week at all. I will leave you my Numbers cell, work, home, and pager. so you can get ahold of me if need be.
