Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    Party!

    Since the standard of skipping September (to recover from PAX) is done with and I am back to wanting to socialize... its time for party!

    WHO:
    You guys!
    Guests are welcome but ask me first.

    Where:
    HAETHAUS


    (House rules for those who arent familiar; 21+, No coming if you are sick, no drinking until you are sick, No being stupid (usually not a problem), Pay your beer tab, if you want access to the massive booze stash then you donate a bottle to it, be quiet outside after 10pm)

    When:
    Saturday October 8th
    Starting at 2pm until.... 3am? Whenever people crash.

    WHY:
    Why do I do anything? FOR AWESOME!

    BEER:
    I will likely be getting Irish death for this party.

    MISC STUFF:

    POTLUCK FOOD
    Bring a food item to share with people.
    I have booze but for access to stash bring a bottle

    Crash space:
    Available for about 12-ish people

    Compensation for crash space is helping to clean up the house the day afterward. :P Must be returned to pre-party state.
    After the failure of this rule for NSFW this is now a requirement. House got destroyed and I didnt get much assistance to clean up afterward. Not gonna happen again :P

    Important parking info!
    If you are crashing or showing up early park streetside. If you are rolling in after 5pm and leaving the party later at night you are allowed to use the parking spots in the wells fargo (furthest west of the bank)

    Me (and a few others) will be going to PDXLAN 19 Feb 17-20th 2012
    (Yeah I know thats far in advance. But this LAN sells out quick. It will likely sell out by new years)

    Its a 500+ Person LAN in Portland :D
    Check it out:
    http://pdxlan.net

    The guy that runs it is Vector, hes the one that has done some Nvidia things at PC Room at PAX before (Mainly in East 2010 and He did the Nvidia BF3 stuff in PC room this year). He runs an awesome event and its quite a sight to see such a large LAN.

    So... I am going.

    Sadly I am not doing a group seat this time (since I got burned by people not committing/canceling) So its every person for themselves! Register for your own account (refer me!), signup for the LAN, pay, and pick your seat.

    I am sitting on table 5 if anybody wants to join me :P

    http://pdxlan.net

    I also am going to be getting a hotel for sleeping/boozing.

    Oh hey... A LAN Party.
    November 11-13th LAN PARTY:
    November LAN!

    If you aren't signed up for the LAN please don't stick around for very long, you are welcome to swing by to say hi to people but thats it. Its a Paid event with limited space. You wouldn't sneak into PAX without a Pass would you? Same deal here :P

    WHEN:
    November 11th 3pm - 13th... till whenever I throw your asses out so I can get sleep for work the next day :P (probably around 8pm-ish)

    4229926621_5d065ce11a.jpg

    This will be another Lite LAN to prep for full events once a month during LAN season (cooler weather). Everyone will be on their own for food.
    WinterWonderLAN in december will be a full LAN complete with food/drinks provided (although cost will be higher)

    LAN entry is $10 + a 12pack of pop or a flat of water to share

    Will be at my place, if you don't know where I live PM me for the addy.
    Max 28 people (thats all that we can fit here for computers)
    Bring computer, monitor, keyboard, mouse, power strip, and cables (Power, video, etc).
    LAN is 21+ (If you feel you are an exception, plead your case to me via PM)
    Crash space is available (I have 8 sumos, a couch, and lots of floorspace), as are showers. (I suggest bringing a towel, I have many but not enough for everyone)
    Chairs for the LAN are provided. If you are planing on bringing your own chair please ask me first.


    The LAN room heats up thats for sure, but with the cooler weather in fall things shouldn't be too bad. I will have the fans in place on low. If you get cold easily then bring an extra layer. Room will be kept around 65f. You are warned in advance so no complaining!

    Also if you must smoke please do it out by the road/storage building. If its done near the house, the smell will come in some of the many open windows.

    ALSO I HAVE A KEGERATOR
    Beer that will be on tap is IRISH DEATH

    Beer will be $2 a pint. Beer is priced so I break even on the keg.

    OM NOM BEER:
    4383187158_6e66174670.jpg

    Previous house party rules apply:
    (no getting sick, you want access to liquor stash you donate a bottle to the stash, no being stupid, no showing up sick)

    I will have 3 gaming machines available for use... Might have more if I can fix them before the event.
    Rules for them are:

    1) You don't have a gaming PC but want to attend the LAN
    2) If you are traveling from out of state and are unable to bring a gaming rig
    3) If you have a crappy PC that can play the games but just barley (if your machine is crappy then I want to see some system specs to judge crappiness)

    Rental fee for these is a sixer (or a single awesome bottle) of something delicious. Ask me for what will tickle my fancy if you want to use one of these.

    (Spots set aside for new people who have never been to one of these LANs before, so new people can attend ) If these aren't taken a week before the LAN then ill open them up to anyone. Just want to give some new people a chance to attend.

    2: LULK
    3: bitterfun
    4: Ducas
    5: Beker

    Standby List:


    Cronus
    Suspi

    Payment is accepted by cash or paypal. If you choose to use paypal you must pay the paypal transaction fee. otherwise bring cash.
    My paypal is reasonablylucid@gmail.com

    If you are bringing cash YOUR WORD IS YOUR BOND THAT YOU ARE GOING. If you have noshowed the LAN Previously you will not be allowed to pay with cash.

    If there are people playing MMOs or other online games by themselves I *will* be blocking the ports to said games. Its just super bad form to be doing that shit at a LAN that's only 28 people. If all you are going to be doing is playing an MMO or League of legends or anything else on line by yourself then let someone else have the slot.

    It has been suggested to me that I should post here that I will be in Seattle this weekend. There will be Saturday- night drinking (taking suggestions on locations in or near downtown) and Blue C for lunch at 1:00 on Sunday. Be there or be square. (Also, be there or I will cry. )

  • BigRedBigRed Seattle, WARegistered User regular
    Once you figure out where you are going ill see if I can be there on sat. I will be downtown anyway for LAN meetings.
