    OH! I am interested for sure! It'll be nice to actually go to one besides having to host them all the time :D (plus it'll be bigger then my 12 ppl parties I can host) It'll be a drive for me, but its nothing new. I got some family down in Grosse Pt, so i am not sure where that is in relation to that...But yes, really interested. Have to look into it as far as the date and see for sure once I get some more time here.

    I usually get off of 94 and go east on Vernier till it hits Mack then go south about a block.(i think thats right) And its right there on Lennon.

    Sorry if you have posted it already, but what is the address to lan party?

    oh sweet! It's only about 7 min away from my relatives....or 3.7 miles according to yahoo :D

    edit\\actually, i have been meaning to come back down that way again this fall. If I do, I will have to check it out.

    By the way prime, wondering you know any computer techs from the high schools down in grosse pt. My cousin works for one of them(I think there is 2 high schools)

    I wanna go sooooo baaaddd!, but i don't think I can swing it. Have to go to southern NJ in a couple of weeks to pick up inlaws van and bring back to Fla. for them. Don't think I can swing 2 trips in that short of time. Not to mention I'll freeze to death up there in Detroit in Jan! I wish everyone good luck on their travels. :wave:

    well after some AIM coercing from primesuspect (sorry about the cutoff, damn computer froze!) , I've finally got the ball rolling on planning this out, hopefully I'll be able to decide yes or no by this weekend, since I've been informed the spots are filling up fast, I really want to go, but I need to make some definite plans first. I'll probably be driving if I do go, so that's like 13hrs. I'll have to check out the games to be played thread...more updates later. :)

    To all the stragglers: Hurry up and decide, cause there's only 10 precious spots left!

    I feel like Willy Wonka......

    Who's going to get the Gold Ticket?

    halloo....? anyone coming from Toronto? Driving on my own is cool, but I'm gettin' all paranoid about bringing my tower over and back over the border... Once I get all that sorted, y'all can count me in the fun.

    citrixmeta, septimus and myself are traveling through TO, we may have to rent a van but it probably would be worth it with 4 people, if you're interested. :)

    Maybe we can get t1rhino signed on once he's back from his honeymoon and have 5, really cheap then. :D

    BUMP! There's 9 spots to fill guys, come on! I know there are some stragglers who are hee-hawing about coming. Forget your fears, your checkbooks, and your boring lives! Meet the people you see everyday on short-media!

    Check out The Celebrity Photoshoot to meet the attendees. Wouldn't YOU love to be on that list?

    Can a non-player come???

    I have not played since we did the board and BB games in RO (Grey Owl, or whatever my little pewter statuette was called).... :)

    I might DRIVE, if someone has GAS and Motel money and lives in Florida. The little Nissan can hold two people and two boxes. By then I MIGHT be a two-eyes and not a four eyes, thanks to double cataract surgery.

    Yeah, I am good for a $20.00 but need to see how I can minimize trip costs. On short trips the little thing I drive gets 33 MPG. Highway, about 40 for longer jaunts. But January is COLD in MoTown, bring mukluks and a good parka Mackanz. Not QUITE as bad as Denver, but.... I might pack up my P4 Antec SX1040 box and see if Linux 9.2 can talk to the network box with a hard-coded link and dabble a bit if wanted, also (probably NOT, but might bring it for fun anyhow). If not, can load something else in the swap bay(like XP or 98 SE or BSD).

    But I drink Gatorade, ICED black coffee and Mountain Dew, fair warning.

    Or do we have an official LAN Digiphotographer yet???

    John.

    If that's a confirmation, Ageek, PM me for sure - that's where I'm collecting the registration confirmations.

    Anybody else coming from Florida?
