For the New Guys - What to bring

Postby AlienX » Tue Mar 03, 2015 7:58 pm

Hey,
I have been speaking to the new guys that have been coming on teamspeak over the last few days (well most of them) and I thought it would a good idea to make a quick list of LAN Essentials as it is their very first LAN.

So, here goes:

Not so important stuff
  • CD / USB Pen with Windows OS (if you have one, great if not dont worry too much)
  • Offline sync your Spotify Playlists.

I cannot think of anything more, but if others can post that would be great.
There are many people usually doing food runs to Tesco's, grab a lift off someone if it is required, also there is a chipshop about a 4 min walk away (it's amazing!)

I'd recommend a self inflating matt over an airbed, much more comfortable and reasonably cheap to pick up from Amazon.

Personal hygiene bag (Toothbrush, toothpaste, razor)

There is a fridge full of free beer, so no need to worry about bringing that
the above post is being sarcastic, please don't read it literally.

I should point out it's as likely that the hall will be hot as cold. The computers and bodies do a lot to heat up the hall. It can be a bit chilly when you first arrive.
