    Default NorCal TBCS Lan Party?

    OK, this purely fantasy at this stage, but...

    IF I were to plan a Lan Party in San Jose;

    1. How many people would attend?
    2. What sort of games would you want to play?
    3. What sort of activities would you like to see?
    4. Would anyone be willing to help with planning and setup?
    5. .......

    My company has graciously given me permission to use our facility to host this event. We do not have great connectivity and that could be an issue, but if I have my way that problem will be solved shortly. There is plenty of parking, we are a stones throw from the airport and there are many computer stores close by. I was also thinking since this IS TBCS, we should have a case mod competition. I have never run one of these so I would also need input on judging and such. Maybe we could persuade Paul to be a judge (I can supply the Scotch).

    Opinions?
    Suggestions?

    For us out of towners, what airport would we be flying into, and what kind of accommodations are available in the near vicinity?

    RTS's such as
    Command and Conquor 3
    Red Alert 3
    Supreme Commander

    Most any FPS is good in my book
    Although I am pretty partial to BF2

    It really depends on what time of year it is whether or not I would attend.

    I would definitely love to help out, I helped Evan Oberman and his The Vesl Lan tournament.

    We do not have great connectivity and that could be an issue,
    Most events you can get a sponsor such as comacast that will provide the networking solutions. If all else fails I have 3x 25 port switches here.

    3 of the main lan games (all of which were played at lans I went to):

    In no specific order...

    1. Rainbow Six 3 Vegas 2
    2. Call of Duty 4
    3. Unreal Tournament 3
    It's like JFK announcing the moon mission. He had no expertise in space travel, and no way of knowing if it would work. He just announced "we're going to the moon" and then they made it happen because everyone was on the same page and working towards the same goal. If he had said "well, let's get some people in space, and we'll see how far out we can get, and if I find someone to make a rocket strong enough, we could possibly approach the moon's orbit and maybe land" it wouldn't have happened.

    1. yes, I'd be down

    2. Games? CoD4, WCIII. Probably some other stuff too but my computer isn't really a powerhouse, so stuff like UT3 is out of the question.

    you could fly in to SFO, in south San Fransisco, about 40mi from San Jose. I'm sure you could find a cheapo Motel 6 or something in the area.
