LANSE 41 feedback
« on: March 05, 2007, 10:20:16 AM »
First off thanks to VBDH (who made up for their noisy entrance) for setting up & Roo, Frog, Phoenix & Pope for breaking down.

Overall a good LAN, nice to see the return of Pope & Phoenix. Good to see Rob drop in. I had a very good weekend despite the fragmentation issues.

Games played:

1942 - still the daddy
CS:S - t'was good
Cod2 - not enough of
HL2DM - bit of fun.
2142 - no bugger joined
BF2 - Bot bashing isn't my thing, but peeps enjoyed it.
C&C ZH - bit of fun - no mismatches! Wouldn't of minded playing more.
DOTA et al - did not win a single game  pff

Fragmentation was still a big problem. Major reasons:

 - I've not got it installed / can't be arsed to install / no disk space
 - I don't like it
 - I'm doing something else

After several attempts I basically gave up trying. Ho hum.  Maybe next time we'll have more fun.


Breakfast:

Really good, might ask that they don't deep fry the bacon next time.
J_l sorry forgot you were veggie - can you remind me next time.

Dinner - Didn't happen. Had 5 people wanting to go. Got pizza instead.

Things to do:

1. Reinstall CS Server, get Wc3 CS working.
2. Reinstall lanse.local and put all files on there.  (sencerd - can you drop the server in soon please)
3. If 2 is done - start blocking file sharing again during peak times.
4. Try and install CoD2 server (was getting errors).

Could have done with more sleep on the Friday night, goddam 6am games and noisy people at 8:30!

Enjoyed it, unfortunately i contracted sars before the weekend so you've all got a week to live, sorry to let you know like this.

It did feel like two seperate lans quite a bit, though and i must have missed the COD2, also SHAME ON SENCERD for not getting CSS WC3 running, you bad bad man

Don't worry about the breakfast jason, i'll try and remind you next time.
To me it seemed that the biggest problem was the apathy towards all in games by a fair number of people, turning up and not even putting in the effort. There's nothing you can do about that Jason.
Otherwise it was good fun, maybe a little more cod2 would have been nice.
Oh and that pub was excellent for breakfast, good find.

remind me never to leave the missus nearby when the next lan comes, lol, still a great weekend of course

bit of a bugger 1942 was at the end when we was all leaving, was rather looking forward to that
CS:S, secncerd - your on my hitlist!
HL2DM - great round, toilets ftw!!!
Generals - seemed to be a very quick round, wish i never chose random though

EDIT: Forgot to mention, FLATOUT2 rules!
CnC3, fantastic, sounds like a plan for next lan :D

Very enjoyable LAN on the whole, it would be nice if the VBDH lot joined in some of the all in games to make them more fun, but the smaller games were good too.

Breakfast was excellent, much better than the wendover, and not going out for a curry minimised the disruption of the LAN.

I was quite a big offender on the "havn't got it installed" front, I seemed to have installed all the things we didnt play, and the reason I didnt get all installed on friday night is quite simple: have you tried installing 5 or 6 4GB games on a 5400rpm laptop drive - it takes an age!
Nostalgia isn't what it used to be.
