    Fort Street's free on a Sunday and there'll be next to no cars on the street in the morning, so ample parking.

    Slight change on seating plan.

    Old faithful projector with cable ties died, bought a new projector and got it on Saturday delivery but it's DOA. Scrounged a loan of another projector (thank you Doowak) but it's on top of boxes and so taking up a seat. I've shuffled people around to allow for this, so at least we can still get teams on screen.

    No time for cable tying up the new one.

    Well on the computers we are bringing they don't have Battlefield or Evolve on them, Was wanting to go to bed soon as just got over a chest infection and get a good nights sleep, so thinking maybe easier to just do them when we arrive, not sure about time of that too as friend is knackered so I assume between 11-12

    Battlefield takes forever to download, it was downloading at 0-4mbps on my 20+ mbps connection. Also, evolve is 20 gigabytes.

    Everything we need should be on the Steam cache/ftp server.

    Graeme does fresh downloads of all the planned steam games just prior to LAN to make sure the Steam cache is up to date as well as downloading the 3rd party games and dumping them on the ftp server.

    Sorry to let you down, folks but had a bad amxiety attack this morning and don't even feel like leaving the house. : (

    Can anyone let Antland know on the Facespace? I'd offered him a lift to save us bringing two cars. : (

    NOTE ; Fort Street is currently closed for traffic because of a 10k run (first I knew of it) - anyone still to arrive will need to access via the beach and park on Charlotte Street

    You'll get through it. Take a few deep breaths, in through the nose and out through the mouth. Have some hot chocolate. Retreat to bed and cuddle into your favourite soft toy (everyone has one).

    See you next LAN.

    I think Golf with your friends should be scheduled for 2 rounds next time, it's awesome.

    Of the other new things, I think BF 2142 should be a keeper - but Evolve Stage 2 and Payday 2, they were nice ideas to add some variety, but I think on reflection having too many games that break up the room into small groups spoils the flow of the day somewhat.

    Hope all enjoyed, was a good day overall I think, cheers for coming along :)
