    It's just come to my attention that Soup and myself won't be able to afford to attend, so if someone else is willing to organise this, go ahead. If not, then it won't be happening...

    Sorry about this everyone.

    Simple sollution FA, someone bring a hub to my place, should be able to fit a fair amount of PC's in the main lounge room. I'm sure I can arrange something, as long as people wish to come along. Otherwise, I'm sure someone else's house would be fine. It's cheaper this way.

    The main reason I wanted to organise it at GamesDen is because no-one was offering their place originally, and also not everyone has a fast enough PC to play. I have no problems with someone wanting to do it at their house etc, I just wanted to try and cater to everyone, I just forgot about myself and Soup not having money... :D

    I can vouch for most of us here that money, or lack there of, is hard to come by.

    Hmmm, so if there was going to be a lan at Kartanym's place, how many could attend? (how many would u feel comfortable having at ya place Kart? What kinda rates? ;) )

    If it came down to not having one, and having one that some ppls pcs arnt up too.. I'd be willing to share mine with someone.. I dont mind watching...

    umm.. u know what I mean.. ;)

    EXPLANATION FOR CHANGING SUBJECT

    I figured that since the LAN at GamesDen might/is not happen/ing anymore, we could use this thread as a general LANing thread... Posting details on upcoming LANs etc... Sound good? :D

    Now, thats one thing I don't like about that unlimited time. Changing the names of threads, I dont agree with that just confuses people.

    A couple of tricks with cabling (as long as someone has some long enough) and a few switch baords, could have at least a days worth of gaming for 10 or more computers, plus mine in the study. And more people can hang around, Dad's very handy with the bbq :), and there's a few consoles (PS2 and N64) for those waiting for a PC.

    What do u think?

    I don't agree with people going back and completely changing their posts after stating that "I edit my posts right after as well so i havnt found the unlimited better or anything."

    Kartanym, I think that sounds good... I know I'll be nicking off with the PS2 :D What games do you have? And do PS2s play PS games? Hang on, PS2s play DVDs right? We could bring along DVDs for the people waiting to watch... The ball is in your court now, when would you like to have it, what would you like people to bring (I recommend getting everyone to bring nibblies and drinks to share, that could be the "entry fee")... :D

    Alright, here goes:

    Date: I'm off from Uni for the next few weeks, but give me an idea of when everyone is free. Saturday or Sunday is the best, around 12pm till whenever. Might make a poll later.

    Entry Fee: $100. No, wait, just kidding. Just bring along drinks, food (anything, I'm hungry!) the usual.

    The following is needed:

    Hub, heaps of cabling and switch boards (I'm sure someone has them)

    DVD's and PS2/PS1 games (yep, the PS2 plays PS1 titles). I've got Dead or Alive II, Crazy Taxi (love that), Onimusha, Gran Turismo 2, Tony Hawk 2 and Street Fighter Alpha 3. Anyone got Grand Theft Auto 3?

    Any music would also be welcome.

    Possibly tables for the PC's, things like that.

    Any other suggestions?

    Ok how about we get this thing under way.....

    How does next Saturday sound (29th of June)?

    Is that good for people? We need it to be in the next few weeks, but the 6th and 7th of July are out (Drew and Clare's engagement party, D&D, and FA birthday are all in those 2 days) and after that it may be too late for students etc......

    Post Yay or Nay :)

    Hmmmm.. No probs here if ur folks are ok with it...

    Just lans can be noisy.. Noise leads to sleeplessness, sleeplessness leads to anger, anger leads to hate, hate leads to sufferrring....

    Parents are fine with it, so this Saturday it is. Details as mentioned above by me, just bring food, drink and your PC. Those who don't bring PC's can bring PS2 games and DVD's, etc. PM me and I'll send you my contact details incl. address.
