    Count me in.... You need anything, Prime? re-roof? Plumbing? More electric? I want to make sure I bring tools this time. That brass screw driver from 16th century was nice but not what I would call the best for circuit panel work!!! :D

    That's right, Kevin, you've done enough damage with your tower article that you're getting a spot of honor at the LAN.

    Kevin... They mean it.... it won't be the first time that Prime has driven long distances to kidnap guys.... what a minute that didn't come out right.... Better not mention mantouch.... darn it... I just did mention it.... glad I didn't say "snuffie".... OK... I'll shut up.

    Hahahaha :o

    You will forget about it when you'll see how many times it would takes to ride to my house and kidnap me, but the idea makes me laugh ;D

    Well i don't know how many hours it would take for me to get there... It must be > 8 hours or so :(

    Plus my LIAN-LI 2000 is not very moveable lol (its hugeee) hah

    These challenges are small in the mind of Brian. He will simply arrive and then carry you and your Lian Li off into the sunset.

    Ask mondi who has flown THOUSANDS of miles to come here multiple times....

    Ask Black Hawk who was flown up from Puerto Rico

    Ask CitrixMeta and Septimus who drove from Montreal

    Ask Clutch and Egoshowcase who drove here almost NON STOP from North Carolina (17 hours)

    Ask Keebler, to whom I said last week: "Come by this weekend"... and he did (twelve hour drive)

    Distance? Cost? Lian Li? These things matter not..... :ninja:

    What about profdlp, who made an arduous six-hour trip to be there last year?

    (It would have been a three-hour trip, but the dumbass got lost...) :rolleyes:

    LoL ;D ;D

    OMG, stick that reply please ;D This is (IMO) your best reply ever prime haha

    Nah no kidding, I appreciate your offer prime, really ;) but you realy think i would let you drive to my house, then to the lan, then to my house again, without saying anything ? haha

    If i have to go one day i'll go on my own. I don't want to ask for something i would not do for others :buck: Like i wont let you lose 24 hours on the road for me prime :P I know you can do it but i can't accept it, well not for a SM LAN. :p I don't think i will find it fun to do more than 5 hours in a car either lol

    This would be fun if i could be there tho, well maybe not cuz you would laugh at me everytime i speak but i could deal with it i guest haha :crazy:

    EDIT : or i could kill you in a game if you're not funny at all :p

    Im sure one day i'll be motivated enough to make the move to the LAN. In a car or in a plane :p

    Too bad for you guys, you will not hear my sexy frenchie/english voice this year hah

    I'm going to try my hardest to be there. Cheapest round trip flight I've found so far is $270. Plus, the shipment of whatever computer I may have at that time. Eek. It's looking partially alright. I don't know if I have the dough that. Crap on a stick!

    I will not be making it this year. I've got 2 wedding to go to the week after the LAN, one in Cali. Spending a buttload of money and the LAN is just one more expense I cannot afford right now. Well, no big loss, seeing how I'm 0-fer-2 so far. Why break my perfect streak now?

    If I get hired on as a regular staff member in the next few weeks, then I can make it. Otherwise, I'll be moving right around then and losing all my accrued vacation in the process :(

    What about Kwitko, who came from NY, picked up Keebs twice along the way, and once on his own, just for spits and giggles?
