MAGG 14.6: Summer Solstice Edition

Cover is $10 and goes 100% to support Geekspace Gwinnett. (see their web site at www.geekspacegwinnett.org)

Bring drinks and snacks to share. See the comments thread for details.

 Venue Notes:

The hackerspace is just getting up and running and the internet connection is a bit wibbly-wobbly, so make sure you have all your updates and files before you come to the event. We'll have local servers for the usual suspects. 

What games we play?
We get this question a lot. The answer is: a lot of things.
The "regular" games: Team Fortress 2, Supreme Commander, UT2004-Carball, Artemis
The "irregulars":  Starcraft(II), Half-Life 2 Deathmatch, , Rise of Nations, etc.

 

WHAT YOU GET:

A Seat at our LAN event (table footprint: 36"W x 30"D... ish)

A LAN connection

WHAT TO BRING:

Your Computer with a wired network interface. (this is obvious, right?)

Protip: Configure your computer's WIRED interface for "Automatic/DHCP" The most common problem at setup is a statically-assigned IP address fouling up the works.

Monitor

Keyboard, mouse, joystick, game pads, etc.

Your mouse pad (the tables are NOT optical/laser mouse friendly).

Headphones with or without microphone (expect voice chat to be used)

Power strip and all applicable power cords.

Your windows, driver and game CD's.

UPDATED Virus protection (Microsoft Security Essentials is your friend).

A good attitude and friends (both we also have plenty of :-) )

Snacks and other goodies are always appreciated.

WHAT NOT TO BRING:

SPEAKERS (Speakers of any sort are discouraged due to the close proximity of everyone, and the tendency for people to bring sub-woofers...)

Viruses, Trojans, worms, etc (scan your machine before plugging in)

Adware, spyware, etc.

Hubs, switches, routers, access points, etc. (these are provided). Any rogue network equipment will be smited by the Network Gods .

Port scanners, packet bombers, encryption crackers, aimbots, wallhacks, etc.

RULES:

NO SMOKING in the building. Before lighting up, go outside. It's not only common courtesy, it's the law.

No porn. If anyone is offended and/or complains, then it MUST go. Just be reasonable.

Anyone caught cheating, packet bombing, roughhousing, stealing or messing with other people's property without permission WILL BE EJECTED - NO refunds, NO second chance! We are very serious about this one.

IF YOU SIGNED UP AND CAN'T MAKE IT:
It happens. Traffic, work, dead boxen and domestic overunits can all put a wrench in the works at the last minute. If you cancel 7 days before the event you will get a refund. Anyone cancelling within 7 days of the event or not showing up will be credited for the next event.

    Hello everybody! I have never participated to one of your LAN parties but I intend to! My only question: are people playing League of Legends? Or at least interested in learning it? Thanks!

    There's a very high probability we'll have a proper 60 megabit internet connection by the 21st.

    I'm looking for a halo tournament

    May 26, 2014

    • Ian

      Probably not here. This is focused mainly on PC gaming, not console gaming. It's also not really a tournament environment, but there are a few groups that do it.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
