What's everybody doing on Saturday, October 1st?  I think we need to get our Battlefield: Bad Company 2 on.  I'm also up for some Sanctum.  Any other ideas?

Maybe some Left4Dead.  I'll try and get the day off tonight.  Wasn't Briney going to have one?  Was that after posting gun pictures and doing BFE inbetween?

Bah, Stewie couldn't keep a secret if his life depended on it.  Be sure to pass along my regards to the missus.

So Briney, are you really doing it?  While we're there, can we take pictures of your guns and post them for you?

That would rock, Wes!  We'd love to have you.

Like I said, as time gets closer, I'll be letting everyone know.  Really, I've only been engaged for a week, so it hasn't been too long.

October 1st LAN is on at my house if anyone is interested. Or the weekend after if that works better.

Gauging interest here...

Tf2 + Bad Company 2 + Old School Unreal + Old School Call of Duty + 40 hours of Empire Earth  + Food and Beverages = fun!

I'm definitely up for all of the games you mentioned.  I'm thinking Sanctum should be on the list, too, but we rarely get through more than three games in a given night.

Any decent hotels in your area?

Patrick is good to go for the 8th.

So...

There will be a LAN at my place on the 8th of October. If everyone is ok with the time, we will get started in the evening around 6 or 7pm. I have space and air mattresses for sleeping if you want to, but you could bring a pillow, etc.

I think Eric, Bob, and Patrick are the ones coming from the West side if someone wanted to set up a carpool.

Games will be: Bad Company 2, Battlefield 3 open beta, TF2, Empire Earth, and maybe some Unreal.

Bob I might need to borrow a switch to ensure everyone has good speeds. I'll check on that.

Drinks, etc will be provided. What kind of Beer/pop do people want?



Directions:

It is Exit 185 off of I-94 (exit is on the left) and then after 9 mins down Michigan Ave, its a Michigan left onto Sheldon and then about a mile north on Sheldon. The house is on the left. There is a second driveway off of Sheldon you can use.

Address:

How is the table situation looking?  Seems like as good a time as any to buy a card table.

Card tables also double as highly functional furniture for your apartment.  Don't forget the plastic patio chairs as fashionable accessories!

bob think you could bring  a switch for the lan and a few spare cables?  I have wireless on a measly 4 port router. Sorry, I forgot that wireless isn't exactly awesome at a lan and i don't think i have our old "geek crew" switch we got all those years ago.

You've got to be kidding me.  You've got a network engineer coming and your proposing using some half-baked DLink 100MB unmanaged switch?

I kid, I kid!  I'll dig out the camera and post the five or six pics I took.  Knowing my luck, none of them turned out.

Thanks for hosting an amazing LAN, Briney.  Your house is amazing!

I don't know which one of you is the spy for Netflix, but they must have been listening to us:

Quote:
It is clear that for many of our members two websites would make things more difficult, so we are going to keep Netflix as one place to go for streaming and DVDs.

This means no change: one website, one account, one password…in other words, no Qwikster.

While the July price change was necessary, we are now done with price changes.

We're constantly improving our streaming selection. We've recently added hundreds of movies from Paramount, Sony, Universal, Fox, Warner Bros., Lionsgate, MGM and Miramax. Plus, in the last couple of weeks alone, we've added over 3,500 TV episodes from ABC, NBC, FOX, CBS, USA, E!, Nickelodeon, Disney Channel, ABC Family, Discovery Channel, TLC, SyFy, A&E, History, and PBS.

We value you as a member, and we are committed to making Netflix the best place to get your movies & TV shows.

Respectfully,

The Netflix Team

I think their shareholders need to fire the entire board of directors and clear out the executive suite.  Their stock was in the $200 range before the pricing fiasco.  It now trades at $111.

I took a whopping ten pictures at the LAN, and two of them were amazing shots of Briney's carpet (ha!).  Anyway, here's what I managed to salvage:


Briney looking as awesome as ever.  Somebody really needs to Photoshop this picture.



Here is the only picture of Briney's firearms that you'll ever see.  I didn't have a chance to take pics of the shotgun, and we all know Briney will never take pics of them!



Here's El Brando with the demon eyes.  This is proof that I really need to buy a digital SLR.



Here's Justin, the new guy.  Make sure you drag him to the New Year's LAN, Briney!



Here's another picture of Spanky, looking like he's going to start something.



...and Meredith, who stayed up hours later than Stewie.  Seriously, Stewie?



Yay, it's me, looking like a dork!



This is the only picture I got of Stewie.  He fell asleep about 15 minutes into our 8-hour game of Empire Earth.  Don't worry, Stewie, Briney and I made you proud!

...and I would be remiss if I didn't post a screenshot of our legendary Empire Earth game.  Stewie fell asleep about 15 minutes into the game (and I took over your base, so I think you're still technically alive).  Spanky lasted a couple hours before he got wiped off the map.  Briney and I held it together against two Hard CPU enemies and pushed the game into an interminable stalemate. 

After eight hours, we managed to eliminated one of the two enemies and had started slowly moving in on the second.  We've got the game saved and Briney has promised me he'll get around to playing it to the bloody end with me, so we'll have to see how the story plays out.

Here's the only screenshot I have from late in the game.  On the minimap in the lower right corner, I'm red and Briney is blue.  I was turtling like crazy and sending out massive numbers of nuclear bombers, and Briney was rolling over the enemy with tanks.  We had a heck of a time keeping any area clear, though.  As soon as Briney and I would steamroll over one area, they'd immediately fill it back in.  It was crazy how fast they were rebuilding.



I built a wonder to see their buildings (they're green), and immediately got pummeled even with heavy defenses.  The second time I built it, I surrounded it with a full wall of towers and a second wall of anti-air.  The surrounding area is also heavily fortified.  They didn't bother attacking this one.

That is ridiculous, I am having a hard time believing you guys are still playing Empire Earth.  Maybe we should have a retro LAN party and play some Counter Strike or SMAC for good time sake, maybe unreal tournament?

If we played anything else, my old box will surely crash.  I will need like 4 weeks or so heads up on the next LAN, so that I can prepare something.  I have been planning on getting a new machine, don't want to spend too much though.

Anyways, good to see you guys finding time for the same ol' stuff.

Believe it or not, it's still as much fun today as it was ten years ago.  I'm thinking we should probably break out Earth 2150 for the next LAN, though.  I think I still have the install discs around here somewhere.

The traditional New Year's LAN is usually the first or second weekend in January.  Now that everyone is married, it's gotten difficult to actually hold it on New Year's Eve.  That gives you a solid 10 weeks to put something together!
