LAN Party

"A LAN party is a temporary, sometimes spontaneous, gathering of people together with their computers, which they network together primarily for the purpose of playing multiplayer computer games."

I even ran my own LAN Party from 2002-2003 called the Dead Gamers' Society. Now I don't have as much time to dedicate to them anymore. I still visit Caleb's LAN Parties and Quakecon in Dallas, Tx.

Updated Quakecon flight info

I guessed a little high on the prices of the airplanes

Piper Seminole Twin Engine @ $210/hr
6 hours one way

$1260/3 people = $420
$1260/4 people = $315
———————————————————————

Cessna 172RG Cutlass @ $125/hr
7 hours one way

$889/3 people = $297
$889/4 people = $223

Early Estimates for QuakeCon Flight

Piper Seminole Twin Engine @ $225/hr
6 hours one way

$1350/3 people = $450
$1350/4 people = $337
----------------------------------------------

Cessna 172RG Cutlass @ $140/hr
7 hours one way

$980/3 people = $326
$980/4 people = $245

Very Rough Estimates. I planned it pretty conservatively as if we were going pretty slow, with a headwind or something. Both estimates include one fuel stop. Everyone would be able to sit up front at least once. If I get hired as a flight instructor, I might be able to take some of that cost off, though not sure and probably not. I know it's pretty steep, but a good tailwind would knock a lot of that price off. I'm not flying with only 1 other person. Will says he wants to fly but it's all about the dollars in the end...

LAN January 1st

Normally I post LAN stuff on the DGS site, but I thought it would get more exposure here.  Normally my LANs are plagued by the lack of chairs and tables and space.  Well, I bought the huge table that is in my computer room, and a set of four metal generic chairs.  This should help a little bit.  If there are too many people for the computer room, we can move to the living room and someone can bring a spare table or something.  I want to make an interactive sign-up thing.  Maybe that will be the next website project I will take up.  I only make progress on those when I have some sort of paper due in school.  I’m rambling on now…so in conclusion…LAN Jan 1st - 1pm - got enough chairs now! kthxbye!

Quakecon Video Released!



The Lo-Res first version of our trip to Quakecon is available for download from our special Quakecon 2005 page located here. Even though it's lo-res, it's still a 138mb file with 320x240 video, and xvid compression. My server will probably take forever to upload it to you, so watch that page for new sources, in the next day or so. I'm going to put it on a server at KSU so you don't kill my connection at home. Rick will release his two videos in the coming weeks, so watch for those as well!

Quakecon Video Soon!

what you’ve all been waiting for..

I’m really getting into Adobe Premiere!  My quakecon movie is about 40% done.  I’m working on the super-huge long tribute video, which will then get broken down into funny stuff, a shorter version, and maybe some other ideas.  Hopefully should be done with the first one near the end of the weekend?
