New Year's LAN 2014! - Saturday, January 4th at 7:00pm

Based on a quick poll at Briney's birthday LAN, it sounds like Saturday, January 4th is the best option for everyone.  We'll have a shiny new HTPC up and running (thread coming soon) to provide an extra gaming PC for anyone that doesn't own a rig.  We'll also have some board game goodness going on if we can find some space for it.

What games do you guys want to play?  Anyone up for some Earth 2150 goodness?  I can even try to get FatMan connected remotely if he's available.

I have BF:BC2 and Battlefield 3 (on Origin, ick), but I'll pick up 4 if you guys want to give that a spin.

I might be able to swing that b0b.  Just let me know any programs and games I will need to have in place if I decide to e-show.

I'll create a VPN account and send you the software tomorrow-ish.  Haven't heard from anyone else, but I'm voting for:

  • Earth 2150
  • Battlefield: Bad Company 2
  • Team Fortress 2
  • Left 4 Dead 2


Here are some ideas for games we haven't tried in the past.  Not sure what everybody has.  I'd love to try out a couple new games, and I'm up for anything.  Suggestions?

  • Borderlands 2
  • Unreal Tournament 3
  • Monday Night Combat
  • Awesomenauts
  • Torchlight 2

I haven't played Borderlands 2 yet but I'd be up for that...L4D2 would be fun and some E2150 is always a good throwback

I can bring SMAC if anyone wants that ha ha.

Don't forget to bring all the spare hard drive space you can muster!  I'm transferring over the latest batch of movies and I'm downloading another batch now.

I haven't uploaded a list yet, but I also have a bunch of TV shows available for download.  Doctor Who seasons 1-7 (starting with 2005) are all available, including the specials.  South Park seasons 1-17 are on the FTP server, as well as FarScape, Spaced, Gangland, Whose Line Is It Anyway, and a bunch of other stuff.  Everything is in the highest resolution I could find, which is generally 720p or 1080p.

Nice!  I've had a hankering for the old Doctor Who's from the 70s.  I used to watch those as a kid when they were on Nick at Nite.

I'm still planning on attending with Jason and Russel. Not sure if we will be there the whole night, but we are bringing machines.

We survived the trip to Detroit, so this should be easy peesy.  ;p

I need to buy games for my alternate Steam account.  Last call.  Anything in particular you guys want to play?

I wanted to take a moment to thank everyone for coming out this weekend despite the impending snowpocalypse (except Spanky, you suck).  I had a blast!

We definitely need to have a summer LAN party this year.  I'll work on getting a couple gigabit switches and hopefully I'll have some more disks attached to the SAN to speed up file transfers.  I totally zoned on downloading the old Doctor Who episodes from Stewie, but I'll definitely rectify that ASAP!

Hey Briney, I just noticed Jason's janky wooden keyboard is sitting on a bookshelf in our library.  I'm guessing he must have noticed by now.  ;p

I can ship it back if he needs it quickly, or I can drop it off next time I'm in the area.  I can also send it back with Spanky if he comes to town before I do.

Let me know what he wants to do.
