Getting ready? was created by garfi3ld
I know tonight I will be running my steam updates, updating and running virus scans, and starting to pack up. Is anyone else already in LAN mode? After I get off work tomorrow we will be in full setup mode. I can't wait to be setup and doing our traditional network stress test with a few late night games the night before the lan!

Thats another good point, by opening your steam games you will force it to check to make sure its up to date. Normaly Adam always assumes that steam updated the game for him and finds out at the LAN that he needs to update :-P

I pause updates the rest of the year and let them run during set-up, TYVM!

ha ha,
I thought that was the point of going to a LAN. Download all the stuff from the interenet you want and update your PC. Also play some WoW if people don't give you crap about playing it at LAN! :silly:

The LAN bag is packed. Going to be bringing some thermal paste and about 3 or 4 cans of compressed air. Someone's rig is always stupid dusty.

Gotta throw a huge thank you to Lost_Variable for the cat5 cable that I got last time.

Also bringing the P4 and the wireless card that I have for sale.

That might be a good contest. Who can bring the dustiest PC. Although who would want to risk electrical shorts building the dust? It's like going to a baseball game and winning the dirtiest car in the lot!
