  • 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.
  • 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.

    I'll be leaving shortly - coming from Marietta, so I don't really know when I'll be there I'm guessing before 11

    Hey, I only have a 27 inch monitor, is that ok? Also do I have to pay 10 now or can I just pay if I come by?

    • Gil

      Okay so I'll be there. I'll probably come a little late, like noonish. 10am is hard for us night owls :)

    High end laptops are PERFECT. you'll use a wire anyway. Preload your favorites, we'll take care of the rest.

      Excellent I live pretty close so I think I'll swing by then!

    Just got my new MSI GT60-0NE with a Geforce 680m and want to run it through some paces. I can preload some stuff on it beforehand, any recommendations for the event other than TF2? Anyone ever brought a high end gaming laptop? How does it hold up in a LAN event? Obviously I'd bring an external mouse, headphones, and mouse pad

    I'm guessing I should leave the UPS at home, right?

      Bring it. The power grid likes to be twitchy on Saturdays. I do have a few High-capacity UPSes here just sitting around.
