Stu's [NTHW] LAN
« on: 24 June 2012, 10:30: AM »
We've just completed another NTHellWorld LAN Party.  We're grateful to Stu's wife who offered to vacate her home allowing 14 of us to invade for the weekend.  Apparently the one golden rule was her tomato plant's being kept indoors, were not to be harmed :sorry:

As ever seating arrangements were a cosy.  For some reason there was a little competition for seating in the conservatory rather than the study, which was fine until the rain came and Gottu found himself in a damp patch.

After a little bit of fiddling, the Virgin Media Superhub was thrust into modem mode, as it didn't want to support our multiple gaming users properly.  Apart from running the risks of the service getting further throttled, our gigabit LAN supported our gaming needs and other file shares nicely.

A NTHW LAN isn't a LAN without a computer build.  Bop faced up to the challenge with an assorted range of components, lack of manuals  :rtfm:, and somehow finally had a machine running by 11pm on Saturday  :pcbang:

Stu's catering services took care of our breakfast needs.  The local Chinese and burger / kebab takeaways did sterling business for our evening meals.  We have to say thanks to Gottu for supplying some rather tasty cakes  :drool:

Our main gaming proved to be Battlefield 3's Conquest gametype with the original flight based maps using our GamingDeluxe hosted servers.  You might think that all this practice would result in our piloting skills showing improvement, but we can live in hope. :doh:

A few too many cameras, and some video, were thrust into the faces of unsuspecting subjects.  For those who couldn't make it, you might be able to see what you missed as the incriminating evidence is published.

Anticipation is already building for the next LAN.  The only question is when, and who will be the mad volunteer to be host?

Yay home, set back up, crap put back into it's holes until the next one.  Now it's time for some shut eye without Rammy's snoring to wake me up again  :yawn:

Was great to see everyone, even if you still don't show me any respect and just want the easy kills :cry:

And big thanks to Stu for putting up with us again.  :notworthy:  I just hope the tomato plants don't need too many bandages :erm:

A big thanks to everyone for inviting me along, especially Stu who was a great host, and a great breakfast cook (with help from Thannis - please tell him thankyou again from me for helping out with breakfast).

Had a really good time chilling, leeching, gaming and meeting everyone in person.

I had a clear run home and got back at 3PM only to realise I had left my wash kit in Stu's bathroom  :doh: So when you find it Stu, I left it there :D

Again thanks to all, I am going to bed now, and probably won't be on for SNG - though I hope I can muster the energy to at least get on for an hour later - will have to drink a few pints of strong coffee :D

Cheers

It was a pleasure to see you all again, Glad everyone enjoyed themselves :tu:

Normally the advantage of being the host is that your back on line hours before everyone else, as you can see this didn't happen this time :( so next time I say "no you all sod off home I'll tidy up" slap me and tell me not to be so daft :D


Anyone know how often tomato plants need watering :doh:

Found the wash kit Storm we thought it was Ste's

Stu is getting good at storing stuff we leave behind - just don't ask him to post it, or bring it to anyone else's LAN  :-X

Stu (& Viv), for letting us use their house
Thannis, for mostly staying at his end of the building  ;) ;D
MGP, for all the gear, without which we couldn't do this!  :notworthy:
Dilli, for being such good company there & back.....made the drive a lot more bearable.
Scary, for trying really hard to get Photoshop to work. Appreciate the effort m8  :tu:

I'd really like my electric toothbrush back too :(

I can get a courier to come and fetch the washbag - but Stu would need to package it in a cardboard box - would that be possible ???
