Since our next event at a major venue isn't until April, we're having a few smallish house-bound LANs to keep the momentum going. Expect Team Fortress, Unreal Tournament, various Starcraft and Warcraft III mods and whatever else we can think up.

This is a small event with a max of 10 people on a first-sign-up, first-get-in basis. There is no hard-set end time for the event beyond "sometime Sunday".

  WHAT YOU GET:

  • A Seat at our LAN event (table footprint: 36"W x 30"D)
  • A LAN connection
  • All-you-can-drink soda (tell us your favorite when you register)
  • PIZZA! (tell us your favorite when you register)

   VENUE NOTES:

  • This is a private residence, please clean up after yourself.
  • Allergen Info: There is a cat in the house.
  • Crash space is available for those who want to stay late and not drive home right away; let us know if you need it (bring a sleeping bag).
  • There is a 30Mb cable internet connection.
  • A HTPC and Media Server are available, there might be a movie or... something. 

   
  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.

  • 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 (Norton, Mcaffee, PC-cillin, etc. If you don't have one, AVG is a very good (and free) virus scanner available here).
  • 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 <g>.
  • Port scanners, packet bombers, encryption crackers, aimbots, wallhacks, etc.

  • NO SMOKING in the building. Before lighting up, go outside. It's not only common courtesy, it's the law.
  • No drugs or alcohol are allowed on the premises.
  • No overly graphic or offensive language. There will be minors present. Use common sense.
  • No porn. If anyone is offended and/or complains, then it MUST go. This is a public place and there will be minors present. Just be reasonable.

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
