Dreams do come true …

On the 16th of this month, we had our last day at college – which was sort of an unnecessary extension due to the ‘genius’ of some stupid people from my class.
If life would be perfect, 13th would be the last day … but anyways …

Having a LAN party had been on our agenda for months … we even almost had it 4 months ago … but the stupid college got in the way and everything was washed off …
So, this 16th, with a do or die attitude … I left college at 10:30 and headed for the Comp Stores.

Most of the guys were already at my place and were setting up their comps ..
I had cleared the entire drawing room of its belongings and had put 3 large tables – edge to edge to house the 8 computers which were gonna come …

Anyways … so I went to the comp guy and purchased 30m of LAN cable and 20 crimps and headed home.
A friend of mine has a crimper and also a switch.

According to plan, we should have finished crimping the wires and setting up the Network by 12 and started playing by 12:30 .. but this was not to be …
After a lot of loose connections and bad crimps and a lot of mess … we finally got everything in order by 2pm

We then played CZ ( Condition Zero ) with a few bouts of Quake III thrown in till 7 – a good 5 hours of continuous gaming …
The plan could have easily extended to an over-night affair .. but for a particular person who left early .. grr :@

Anyways … we had lots of fun … and if you would have walked alongside my house in between those 5 hours … you would have heard all the expletives that have ever fallen on your ears in your lifetime … and even more … just in the span of 30 seconds !!!
Good times :)

Anyways, the thing is that its not amazing that we played for 5 hours and stuff .. but that we managed to pull it off …
The first time – our first ever LAN party with a network of 8 different computers …

Now that we have all the wires crimped and stuff … next time shouldn’t take more than 30 mins to set up.
For any help on how to set up a LAN gig … feel free to contact me :)
