Autumn LAN 2013

Post by Gomer » Fri Oct 04, 2013 9:50 pm

You had to know this was coming, right? One doesn't simply put together a brand new gaming desktop and then NOT properly inaugurate it with a LAN party.

There's a secondary reason as well. Turns out that for reasons far too verbose and boring to go into here, I am going to be required to burn 60 hours of vacation at some point during the month of October. Yes, it's related to the current situation those dipshits on Capitol Hill have gotten us into. But it's better than getting furloughed (or laid off altogether) so I won't complain.

So I'm open all month. I would like to try and sneak in a couple of solid weekdays (maybe Thurs-Sun or Fri-Mon), but I know schedules will make that difficult. I'll throw out a weekend for starters - how about sometime around the 25th-27th?

At this point, I think that weekend could work for me. I'm not sure how much I can be available during the week, but the weekend shouldn't be a problem.

Not sure how much in person time I will have that weekend but some over the net play might be possible.

Is this also the weekend Lady Jobu had planned for a Halloween party?

Yes, which is why I was thinking it'd be good timing for a LAN.

If other weekends work better I'm open to suggestion, however Tyler has already told me he is a definite no-go for the weekend of the 19th. I believe Matt had some availability issues as well but I can't remember the exact weekends he was open. But having one or two of us playing remotely wouldn't be the end of the world IMO. You'd just be missing out on the typical witty LAN banter that takes place at these get-togethers. :D

I think I should be able to be at or link up for most of this when it happens.

At this point I'm just gonna plan for the weekend of the 25th-27th, unless I hear any good reasons not to. I'll probably end up taking the week prior off to burn thru most of my vacation requirement.

Sounds like a plan! I'll see if I can get the 25th off, but no guarantees I'll be able to.

So I'm not going to get Friday off. Compounding that, I had a death in the family last week, and have another impending one, so I am (and have been) busy with family stuff (never mind trying to stay sane). I don't know how much, if at all, I'll be around this weekend. I'll jump in online where possible, but I really don't know what to expect right now.

Since it looks like there is a skeleton crew at best forming for this LAN I am going to assume it is not happening. I haven't been able to get a hold of our host today for conformation but he sounded sketchy that it would happen the other day seeing as how some crap has some up for some of our crew. It is a long way for me ya know. :cry:

Hopefully we'll still be Halloweening it up tomorrow night.

So yeah, decided to just call this one off since it seemed like the stars were aligned against us this time around. I am up for giving it another shot next weekend if there's any interest. Yay? Nay?

I can't commit at this point, but it sounds good to me. If I can't make it, there's always the internet.
