Questions from a LAN n00b

Hey all,

This'll be my first LAN so I was hoping some of you veterans will be able to answer my n00bish questions about the event and such:
  • Are there any shower facilities at the racecourse or is it a "wash in a basin" type affair?
  • Should I bring an ethernet cable or will a wireless adapter do just fine?
  • Should I download games beforehand (i.e. will the connection be fast enough to download games from Steam quickly should I need to buy some to play).
  • Food and drink: are there runs to supermarkets / do people order pizza?
  • Is Kris going to sexually assault me?

Thanks and see you on Friday!

Dawson or Rasher can confirm this one. There are showers on site but it depends if they are unlocked for us to use. You can still have a quick freshen up in the basin if not.

Ethernet Cables are provided to allow you to be on the same LAN as everyone else. You shouldnt need a wireless dongle as you will be hardwired into the network.

Yes, Make sure all games that you want to play at the LAN are downloaded in advance. You will have to think that the internet connection is going to be shared between 50 of us so will be extremely limited and slow. People will be able to share files of the games if you have brought a copy via steam.

There is on site food which provides drinks and snacks as well as hot food. There a runs to and from tescos and other supermarkets which are close by if you require something else. We have in the past also gone out for dinner on the saturday night unsure if this will happen but if it does and you want to come shout.

No.... Plat, Rups, Rasher, Hairy or others will be doing the sexual assaults.

See you friday!

Re: Questions from a LAN n00b

Check the LAN advice and FAQ pages here; they go into a bit more detail.
http://www.gamegrin.com/directory/ev...3/mylan/advice

In terms of showers, they aren't usually available. Will double check though.

Re: Questions from a LAN n00b

Unfortunately showers have not been available for a while so it is a wash in a basin job, or baby wipes

You have a fantastic kichen staff (myself and Emsey with a little help from others if it gets busy) that are able to provide a range of great food (you can not come to a LAN without having a LAN burger) And if we can get Dawson's fantastic food ordering system going you will not even have to get out of your seat

Re: Questions from a LAN n00b

I do love a good burger.

I only asked about food runs as I imagine I'll need a near-constant supply of caffeinated beverages.

Re: Questions from a LAN n00b

To chime in, you're driving up with me meaning you get like.. three or four trips to Tesco a day if you want it

Monster doesn't refill itself.
