Post-LAN thoughts.

Postby Jani » Sun Feb 10, 2008 6:08 pm

Well to start with, another brilliant LAN as usual :)

Few things made me laugh, in particular a few rules which were laid down before the LAN, which weren't stuck to lol.

No more than 1 monitor per person - as we know a certain attendee took 4 lol :lol:
No base units on the desks - well at least half of the attendees ignored this one :wink:
Leave all boxes/bags in cars once unpacked - again, lol :P
No inflating airbeds at stupid times of the morning - I know that a few people, including our group, did this :oops:
And most importantly - my fucking milk! I know some people used it without asking because at least 1 pint of it went missing :x

However the event was still great, good to see loads of people there including a lot of new people, shame that the projector was never used and TF2 wasn't played as much as I expected, but nevertheless still good. If there were prizes for the worst score in UT2004 then I probably would have won them all :lol:

As for sunday morning breakfast - I think everyone should chip in 20p or 50p or something and then a couple of people go to Tesco and buy food, and have a big fryup like at SL11 :D

Chinese food ordering - even though I don't like Chinese food I think that was a good idea, and probably good to do it again next time.

Also a suggestion for future events, there should be a 'lights out' policy, where the hall lights are switched off at a certain time (say 2am) and then back on at a certain time (say 10am) to enable people to get to sleep more easily.

Thanks to all the staff and attendees for a great weekend, I expect we'll all be seeing you at SL13 :)

Oh glad it just wasn't me who was ill there! :-) Pretty much lost my voice on saturday :cry:

Thanks for another great lan, the tf2 (need more of that next lan) and hl2dm games were great. Random games of zero hour with jani and ez were fun as well.

Definitely keep the chinese takeaway orders going next lan, il make sure i have enough money for some next time.

Yeah was a great lan as usual, thanks to all the staff who put the effort in which means we get a pretty much hassle free gaming weekend, just a few electrical issued but soon sorted out thanks to wishy and the gang :)

I agree with janipewter with the lights out, they were quite bright. The chinese was an excellent idea, didn't go for it as we always go to the pub on the saturday night but maybe next time we will indulge :D

Mike was funny saturday night, as i went to bed my bung came out (of the bed) and whoosh the air came out, lots of laugher and Mike quick as a flash said "phail" lol.

For the S.H.I.T.S gang it was a good one, dirky owned at UT3, dogboy won the UT2004 comp, icey, saunds and guardsmon did excellent at sup com and I won every savage game I comanded, even when I nicklamed as gooseman :)

I managed to lose my big red air pump though, d'oh, staff have you found that?

I also missed not having the projector on with films showing, was that just becuase no one could be bothered or some other reason?

Anyhows, thanks all, see you in June.

Cheers, Shane, aka CarniWhore

yes please, and if mike can you get an SFE server next time from http://www.notforidiots.com that would be nice, the version you were running was very old/buggy.
