Yes, its fine to bring, but its recommended you don't put your tower on the table at the same time.

You should be able to play most games, might need to drop the resolution down, but with a CRT at least you can run 640x480.

May want to improve your gfx tbh - maybe consider a 9600 pro, 9700 pro or 9800pro with all being pretty cheap s/hand now.

And welcome to the forum.

reduction in price because of my age

Postby schrodingerscat » Thu Apr 13, 2006 10:54 pm

coz I will not be able to get as much microing in as fast as you younger types. And I will probably spend the whole week how do you say "re-spawning".

I will be pwnd what ever that is "boom head shotted indeed". Also at my age an all nighter means not having to get up to go for a pee.

And Malccy thanks for the tip and thanks for welcomming me too.

Welcome schrodingerscat,

before you get put off the idea of attending the lan by some of the younger attendees comments, its worth bearing in mind that most of the people who are loud and outgoing on the forums are usually quiet and peaceful in real life.

Welcome to westlan :)

I know the youth of today with their MaxDSL blhha blhaa 4 Mb line. I was brought up on 300baud acoustic couplers and Commadore MUD back in the early 80's.

If i ever catch them I secretly load balance their router to 300baud. As for the "Mighty Xorn", looks like a hamster with a hat on

The Mighty Xorn: I r n0t mighty'er than the sword? :D

schrodingerscat: Welcome sir. It's nice to think there are some old school'ers around on the internet that used to play mud's. There are other people your age that go to Westlan. I'm sure you meant your original comment about the price reduction as a joke, I'm not sure many people catch on that quickly. :)

I'm sure that you'll enjoy the lan a lot more if you fork out for a 9800 or somthing similar, you'll be less restricted to ms solitaire.

Just so as you don't feel alone - i'm coming upto 34 and had a C64 and remember loading games up on cassette, being amazed at the graphics in 'International Karate' (what a great game that was) and games only costing £6 new (had enough change for pictures and bag o' chips on way ome' - said in a northern accent).

There's a few of us here in our thirties so please don't be put off - and just cos' your over thirty does'nt mean you have to be rubbish at gaming.
