April First, 2017

Postby MrJymm » Sat Mar 18, 2017 1:41 am

So, we're doing this thing. It's the thing we used to do, with the computers? I don't know, it was like, a bunch of people, and they were together mostly, but also they were ignoring each other to stare at their own screens all day? Not like smartphones, like bigger screens. Is this making sense? It was fun, I swear.

We're totally going to do that again. In just a few weeks! WE ARE REALLY DOING IT. You should be there. But first you should be here, telling us what we've missed and what we need to be playing these days. KTHXBAI.

Dude. Do you see the caps I used up there? We aren't pulling the long con here, waiting three years just to take sign ups and give an address for people to go to and then not actually be there. That would be beyond cruel.

We are legitimately back up and running. Trying anyway. If the gamers are willing to come out again, we will keep going. If not, we won't be renewing the hosting contract on the site when it expires this summer. So it was kind of now or never for us.

April first?! Can we play some Half-Life 3?

Might be worth reaching out to folks in the steam group - not sure how many still frequent the forums. Speaking of the forums, I'm happy to help you upgrade off of this 7 year old version of phpBB to get rid of the errors everywhere if you'd like :)

Given that I live a thousand miles away now, I'm not sure if I could make it to this one or not on short notice sadly. Maybe if XPerry was going so we could car pool back to the land of cornfields. If there's multiple events this year, though, I'll definitely try to get to one of them for old times' sake.

*rubs eyes*
Who? What?

Something something opening old wounds. If there is legitimately going to be an event sometime this year it's possible I could time a vacation back up there appropriately. And if anyone else were to be flying into Chicago we could split a rental car from there to Peoria.

I'm going to DreamHack at the end of April already actually and starting a new job at the beginning of the month so if this happens later in the year I could consider it.

This event is legit, the main reason for the short notice is that it took us some time to get faster internet set up. It took a change of venue to do that, but now we have the speed to put on a hopefully decent LAN. Please be patient since this is our first event in the new digs. The admins have been very busy this year trying to resurrect MAGIC-LAN for you guys.

Now, what games are you wanting to play?

That said, it's genuinely great to see this happening. I'll support it in whatever way I can manage. I can't make this one as I'm literally starting a new job at the beginning of April, but I'll keep an eye on future plans if this one goes well for you all. Hell my computer is small enough to be a carry on at this point (http://ncases.com/), so flying in is quite literally an option down the road.

I'll probably be in the area around Memorial Day if there's any hopes of a second event that quick. If Paul, Perry, and Tweak could come as well we could form an "Illinois Deserters" table.
