a whole bunch of big requests :)

Postby opus » Mon Jan 28, 2008 12:23 am

Good news everyone! looks like I *may* be able to attend SL12, I'll be transferring from RNAS Culdrose (Helston) to RNAS Yeovilton (Yeovil) that weekend, finishing at Culdrose on the friday and needing to be at Yeovilton before 8pm on the sunday which all adds up very nicely since Budleigh Salterton is somewhere in between.

Hurrah! you hear me cry.

Now comes the shit news, I'll be carrying every item of uniform I own, a fair quantity of civilian clothing and no computer, to that end, I'd like to ask any kind souls who know and love (or just slightly less than despise) me who can:

A: Possibly lend me the use of a computer for the weekend (I'll be able to bring my own mouse!), nothing special needed, as long as it'll play UT2004/CoH/C&C3 I'm a happy chappie.
B: Retrieve me from Exmouth Station on the friday, and maybe deliver me back to Exmouth on the sunday :)

if either of these things are unmanageable then obviously it's a no go, though it's been a while since I've been to a LAN of any description and the shaky hands and nervous tics are starting to unnerve people!

Thanks in advance for any help that anyone can provide, I appreciate it greatly.

i've got a geforce7800gtx 25mb + zalman cooler, 2 gig of good ddr2 pc-8500 ram, 19" crt (beggars can't be choosers) and a spare case flying around spare. bad news is i'm going to stratlan the same weekend, so if you get the rest together with someone beforehand, it could be put into a reasonably machine. if someone wants to buy it too, that'd be great

Expect it to crash. You might wonder how a monitor can crash, but Hansol managed it somehow!

I am planning to bring my spare PC along as Grunting Pig keeps killing his, not high spec at all but if all else fails and Grunting Pig hasn't killed his it will be available :D

I can't use a computer for work unless it has two screens anymore.

Although two 22" crt's could cause the universe to implode.

So that's set then.

Guy to bring media centre
Fred to bring monitor.

Laurie i wouldn't worry about it, you'll need the space for taking neomancer away with you!
