    That testing night isn't going to happen this weekend - I've got a ton of work to get through.

    Admittedly there's been a rather unexpected surge in computer orders (I really thought rush had passed in November, seemingly not!) so it's going to be a hectic week.

    Current plan is that I will try to do prep work for LAN on Friday or Saturday night while I give priority during the rest of the week to making sure orders are fulfilled on time.

    It may be that if they don't work well first time, CS GO may be dropped for normal CSS Gun Game just since that should already work nicely, for saving time. Best have both ready. :)

    I'm most excited for having a rest on Wednesday night.

    But LAN will be fun too :)

    I've changed CSGO back to CSS. I honestly don't think I'm going to get the time to set up something new.

    ADDED REMINDER - Register your account for Puyo Puyo *before* LAN!

    Unfortunately I won't be able to attend as I'm catching a ferry on the 21st and driving about 6 hours after that

    I will be taking my spare pc, just trying to think if its worth it to replace my 2 case fans before the lan as one is dead and other works but has a broken blade normally a few minutes job but these are glued into the case as they were too thick for the original holders lol.

    Must remember to go to bed early tomorrow.

    In the upstairs area at this time of year, keeping your PC cool is not usually too much of a concern ;)

    On that note, everyone remember to bring layers...

    But really, if you've got a problem with a computer - sort it sooner rather than ruin your day with issues or missing stuff out because you're doing on the spot repairs.

    When I had what was turning out to be a faulty power supply (one of those frustrating intermittent things) I was absolutely gutted that my system powered down during GTA at a previous event and wouldn't start again for ages, missed the rest of the playtime on that game. So if there's any hint of a computer problem before, deal with it asap. :)

    I wish I could replace components to get rid of this nasty cold, too. /grumble

    You could try an anti-virus like McCofee or BugDefender

    Just running my pc that I am taking to get any updates needed not that I expect I need any related to games we are playing but also to make sure everything is updated.

    I did make a puyo puyo account before but havent used it since, anyone know if they purge old accounts? Will try and log in anyway to test it tonight.

    Just finished setting up servers and making sure file server and cache are populated. Time to head home for food and rest. :)

    TF2 is having a stupid glitch where it won't change level, so I've just made 4 server shortcuts to run one at a time. It will have to do, struggled away at it for a while but can't figure it out.

    BUT! I fixed the COD4 Paintball config that was causing it to always freeze when changing levels. There was a typo :3

    I've still to get a shot of Jailbreak Source. So we'll be winging that one.
