    If you like gaming and/or MMO's, you'll appreciate the series. I'm glad I wasn't the only one who thought you sounded like him.

    Man, it was a hell of a good time. Nicky did a hell of a job with everything. He had some help from PAINPIG getting us int he LAN hours early ! Nice Job PAIN !
    In our last EVENT, is was 6 Admins vs 6 iO regulars. We lost but listening to Flufffy and his buddy Jack Daniels cracked me up big time. Thanks Miko !!! And seeing all the Guys and Gals were fanatactic ! I would like to give a shout out to THaNtos_j2 for helping me with the quad mod ! Hey Vinny, how is your back?
    I hope everyone made it how OK !
    Can not wait for the next one. A winter on would be cool ! Maybe in January /February ?
    And count me in on the Ho Jo protest. Wow !

    Re: Thoughts

    Now that we know a T1 can handle two video upstreams to USTREAM, maybe next time we'll have a somewhat better video setup for the camera-portion, though I definitely thank NRay for donating his netbook for the cause! I don't know how many people were watching the in-game stream, but sorry for the constant disconnects. Stock CPU coolers are to blame for that!

    Re: Thoughts

    I had an awesome time this weekend. I know I haven't been around much online and I don't play games that often (which will change now that I semi know how to play TF2 haha) but it was awesome to put faces to the names I hear from Nick all the time. You guys are an awesome group of people and it was so much fun hanging out and meeting all of you. As far as the HoJo ... if you guys call and complain to corporate, they will take action I believe. Go for it, it can't hurt.

    As far as me playing to much FarmVille - I had to do something while Thanatos was reenacting Brokeback Mountain with my boyfriend

    Vision Thanks for the comparison with Sloan. Major compliment although I don't see it haha. Oh and thanks for the Ice!

    Big thanks to PainPig for putting up with me asking 128940803182 questions about TF2 and to NRay for taking awesome pics and of course Nick for an amazing time and a weekend away from home!

    Everyone else, it was awesome playing with you and meeting you ...well trying to play anyway

    I am looking forward to gaming with you guys and seeing you at the next LAN!

    Re: Thoughts

    My thoughts are short and simple..

    Thanatos = Gay
    Nickey = Bi
    Attack = One CRAZY SON OF A BITCH.. But a bad ass dude after you get used to the screaming.
    BananaPants = Cooliest quiet guy i've ever met and I'm glad to call him a friend.

    But for real great job nicky, had a hell of a time. Was great meeting yall, and next time we need to get more faces there for sure.

    Oh come on now, just because you ride Nicky one time like he's rodeo livestock doesn't mean you're gay. Although I'm pre-screening all the LAN pictures to avoid me explaining to my wife why I was sitting in Bigg's lap and why neither of us felt uncomfortable about it. Or the whole riding Nicky. Or face humping him over the live video stream. Come to think of it, Nicky and I were through quite a bit this weekend; all we were missing was some cuddling and a cigarette.


    P.S. My pulse finally came down around 10am this morning from that Monster low-carb I had on Friday night. Holy crap, never again... I'll stick with coffee for my 'wake me up' vice.

    I will admit the best part of my weekend was waking up Sunday morning to my 1 1/2 year old running into the bed room screaming 'da da' 'da da' 'da da'.

    Re: Thoughts

    I just wanted to say that I too had a great time. It was awesome to be able to meet a lot of the people I play with. Nicky, you did a great job planning this event. I hope we have another one in the near future.
    There is only thing I would change for the next LAN. ALL the tournaments involved TF2, it would be nice to have some tournaments for a game other than TF2.

    Some other things I learned/observed this weekend:

    1) The combination of the music at the LAN and the flashing lights flafnir had made me feel like I wanted to dance the whole time.
    2) Next time I go to the Allentown bus station to pick someone up, I'll make sure to wear my bullet proof vest.
    3) I want Painkiller's monitor.
    4) Bigg is a pretty cool mofo and definitely the life of a party.
    5) Twizzy is a great dude too and it was great to meet him in person.
    6) Fluffy is a pretty good guy despite his love for Marquette! GO RU!
    7) Someone must have put some crack in my monster drink because I only drank 1/3 of a can and I was wired for hours.
    8) Don't give Lunatic and Fluffy a Styrofoam cooler or it will end up in a million pieces.
    9) I still donít know how graffiti got on the 12 foot high ceiling in the men's bathroom.
    10) From reading the above posts, I now know why Nicky and Thantanos kept disappearing together for hours.
    11) Bigg doesn't really own a zebra thong.
    12) The ladies of iO are all really sweet.
    13) The LAN didn't feel 100% right without our Euro brethren.
    14) Attack needs to stop screaming so much or else he is going to have a heart attack. Or his neighbors will kill him first.

    Re: Thoughts

    Ha! I totally forgot about the cooler, though that was mainly Lunatic's doing. I loved our half-assed attempts to scoop up ice too.

    One of my favorite parts of the LAN was when Banana and Lunatic were facing each other in the 1v1 tournament. I was in-between the two of them, so I didn't even have to spec, just look to either side.
