We used to use QTracker, but tbh we found that most of these server browser programs are someone dodgy. Your as well looking at everybodys screens and seeing what they're playing ;)

i myself use HLSW, updated regularly and works a treat with most every game, also works outside of a lan, for checking your fave game servers status's/players in/etc

Yeah, I've always got HLSW running in the background at the lan now. It's better, because even if a server has 2 players in it, you may not see it on other peoples monitors, but 2 people in a server is enough to get me into a game. :)

Perhaps, replace the game servers page on the intranet with a link to download HLSW? That would be awesome. Far easier to maintain than Qtracker and very functional.

I'll have a look at that program.

I forgot to mention The Kitchen - in particular The Microwave.
Cool.
1.21 Jiggawats!

All that's needed is a flux capacitor and the kitchen will be perfectly capable of time travel.

I have to say, making a pot noodle in 1 minute flat was fan-daby-doozy.

The stage is cool, and I love the idea of the media center on the projector, the choice of films was great, but I would have loved to have seen the rest of serenity.

I don't know if it was me or the floor, but I knocked my ass flat on that floor :)
It must have been me, or the material of my socks, because I seem to slide on my kitchen at home sometimes too :)

And who could forget the laptop. Poor lappy, funny though.
I would have been amazing beyond words if it booted up into windows afterward. :lol:

Goose, What is the point if it doesn't post?

Right pain in the ass to fix.

And another thing: the 10x10 px conversion of Family Guy was genius, and even more so to play it on a 50" projector :lol:

Next time I'd love to see that console media player (VNC was it?), the Linux one. That'll be roffletastic :D
