Hot damn! One more day until Christmas… wee :-) While I have the time I wanna wish everyone happy holidays. I hope ya’ll get everything ya asked for from Santa Claus this year. Were you naughty or nice this year eh? Well which was it? Naughty… no? Hmm… how ’bout now? ;-P

Hardfought LAN #3 is almost upon us… can’t wait! Just about 3-4 weeks to go, and it’s looking like we’re gonna have a full house. Poor Rad-Man :-P As soon as I finish this post, I will post Rad’s home address on the msgboard here, you can find it in the thread that pertains to this news post. Also, Rad posted addresses for some nearby hotels so if you’re attending, go take a look now and get some reservations made. Travel usually dies down after the holiday season so getting a room shouldn’t be a problem. Oh yeah, before I forget… I have a request for everyone attending the LAN. If you have a network hub or switch, please bring it along with you. The source I had is no longer available, so please bring what ya can in that regard.

Well, I need to wrap this up and get to bed… I actually have to WORK this morning… bleh. Have a safe one folks, see ya online.

EDIT – Turns out I’ll be able to bring a 24-port 100Mbit full-duplex switch after all. So all we’ll really need is for one other person to bring along an 8-port or better hub or switch to handle the few remaining attendees. Don’t forget to bring a CAT-5 cable folks… Wo0t!!


HF LAN news, other stuff

Hiya gang… sorry for the late update. I’ve been working my ass off the past few weeks, like 60+ hours a week. Bleh. Ah well, at least I’ll have cash to get presents for the loved ones this year :-P

Let’s see… Hardfought LAN #3 is looking to be an excellent gathering. We already have twenty-five people signed up, with room for only five more. There are some people who have attended the past LAN gatherings that wont be able to make it to this one unfortunately, but on the other hand there will be quite a few new faces to put with the names this time around. I am looking forward to seeing as many people as I possibly can before I ship off for active duty. Just a reminder, CounterStrike will be the main focus, but all games are welcome to be brought, shared and played.

I will be posting Rad-Man’s address here soon so everyone attending the LAN can get their maps made early. And speaking of maps… Mapquest sucks. Use Microsoft’s ‘Map Point 2002’, it’s available online for free usage. It’s much better in my opinion.

Other stuff… nothing to mention really. Just been getting things in order around here before I leave, been working a lot and trying to save up a nice lil nestegg. I’m also playing CS again, trying to get into shape as it were before the LAN. You’ll find me on HFC’s server at so if ya want an easy frag, you’ll know where to find me ;-P

See ya online gang.
