Heres the info:

Wish madkat (me) a happybirthday on friday (im 16, yeah im that cool )

Ok all, TC2K5 approaches. Here is a tentative schedule / rules / what to bring.

Schedule - Show up any time after4ish on Friday 25th. The earlier you show, better chance of not getting put somewhere you may not want to be. The Con will run til sunday whenever people want to leave. Most people are dyeing to get home before noon, some want to stay later. Its all fine. Any organized tournaments will be held on saturday. Friday is free for all gaming (as is the whole con anyways), setup, and having you fix your computer up all nice and install games.

Rules- Dont be stupid. While smoking is allowed in the house, I will make sure to put those who do not wish to have the whole second-hand experience away from the smokers. Drinking is still an unsure how we are going to handle it. Might just have those over 21 who want to have a bar run one of the nights and get it out of your system. Might be otherwise, I dont know yet. I will ask that you do your best to have your system cleaned of virii, etc. before you show up. If any of the sniffers detect any kind of worm or virus in the network, it will be shut down, you will be found, and unplugged until you get it fixed. The internet will be provided for necesity. Messenging clients, web surfing, updates, patches, drivers, that stuff is fine. No P2P and no MMORPG. I know a whole lot about computers, enough to scare people. Our Network God that we have, Omicron2004, scares even me. So be warned you will be caught if you are doing bad bad naughty things with the network. Just to make sure nobody's equipment decides to walk off (which it never has at any of our lans) we have security. A few people that will make themselves known to you to help you with labeling if you so wish. There are also 'sleepers', security that you wont know are security. We dont mess around when it comes to other people's stuff, end of story. We are foregoing having a waiver this year for people to sign. We trust people to be nice to each other and not sue everybody else for their excessive flatulance that then ruined their lives.

What to bring -
Computer (CPU)
Monitor (flatpanel if you have one, if not, nothing over 19" unless you have to)
Headphones (speakers will not be allowed, too disruptive and too much power)
A piece of ethernet cable (we have tons of extra's, but if you got one bring it)
As much hard drive space as you can muster
keyboard, mouse, pad, power cables, power strip (people forget these all the time)
Change of clothes and Toiletries if you so wish.
Medication (if you have asthma etc)
Game CD's or images (with cd-keys) NOTE: THE LEADER OF THE LAN HAS 60+ ISO's OF GAMES + KEYS + CRACKS
Cell phone charger (mommy wants to make sure she can check up on you)
Cash (10 bucks to get in covers as much soda as you can drink and an occasional meal. If you want more or other food than we have, we will have regular food runs for it.)

What Not to bring -
Weapons of any kind (If I find you have a knife bigger than my palm(as per boyscout rules), we will force you to play the bishop knife game with it)(See the movie Aliens)
Speakers
UPS or Power backup units
(by permission only, these are good for you, bad for everyone else)



Ok all, I only got one last thing to say, because we may or may not be strapped for space. We will fill every table, wall, nook, and cranny of this house if need be. Do not expect a conference room. We are making due. If you dont want to come, by all means dont be pressured into coming, we will use your space, trust me.

THERE ARE ONLY 10 SPOTS LEFT!
