Back on the attendance situation...

If anyone knows of other places where we might be able to drum up some more people please let us know. Better yet, if you know of anyone in town, be it a friend from work (or an arch enemy who you wanna frag to death,) a neighbor, fellow student, anything, bring them along!

Right now, like i posted earlier, we sit at barely 10-12 people right now, which is nowhere near our goal of 50 (dammit, i sound like a PBS pledge drive.)

And most importantly, if you plan on attending, make sure to at least register on the website, prepay via paypal if possible. If you can't/don't want to use paypal and wanna drop your cash in person (keep in mind, it's $10 to register online, $15 if you pay at the door,) send us an email at QA@lan-central.com so that we can at least get an idea as to how many people to plan for/expect.

And of course, the obligatory begging... If anyone has spare comp parts laying around that might be useful in building additional game servers, let us know as well. The more horsepower our network has, the better your gaming experience will be. =)

Oh yeah, ARE YOU FRIKING NUTS? 9AM on a Saturday morning?


Looks like 9am isn't all that uncommon for the start of a lan party...

small update on the status of servers for the party...

Should be getting a 40 gig hd and possibly an athlon xp1500 chip to bring the second server up to date (well, as close as our broke-selves can make it.)

Here's another vote for a sticky. We need a sticky!

Also, a d00d from one of my classes said he would come. Have you guys figured out the date thing yet? I could probably only come if it was on the 17th.
