*sigh* Finally a chance to sit and rest for a second... :)

Oooh, boy, what a weekend. Probably one of the most hectic weekends I have ever had of late. Obviously it was centred around Bucalan, the LAN that I help run. Two friends from Sydney came up for this one, and they were staying at my place, so of course we had to have a LAN before the LAN, and so a few other friends came over too. My wife took the opportunity to stay the weekend with her parents out of town, and I don't blame her... At some stages during the weekend, I wished I could join her. We all stayed up till about 3.30 - well I did, some of the others were up later - thus we all slept in and were late getting to the Hall... when I got there people were waiting to go in. I was pretty embarressed for my tardiness... I hope that never happens again.

The LAN itself went well, with about 49 people attending, which makes our average for the last 4 LANs 49.25, which is pretty damn good for Bathurst. I was actually talking with my friends from Sydney about proportions of LANers to location population - as they were admins from Sydney Gamers League, a 420 player LAN - and it turns out that Bucalan has a proportion of 1 in 720 LANers (1 LANer per every 720 people). SGL has about, well it's a big number, probably around the order of 1 in 1 million, but for a city like Sydney, 420 player LAN is still huge! :)

However, that night we continued to have a LAN, and got to bed at 4.30am. We played a bit of Mechwarrior, which I am going to start getting into, I have got a trackball from Groovemerchant, and I'm going to try that combination with a joystick and keyboard. :) Should be enough to take on Dustpuppy and his Strategic commander :P

But as a whole, just the entire weekend was a blur of excitement and action. Not once did I sit down and relax, and I am regretting that now. I wasn't able to get up very well this morning for work, while not being late, I was pretty damn tired. :/

Oh well, relax time... zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

What a LAN, i still cant get over how much fun the whole ordeal was. I have to admit our disorganisation in the morning ended in us door ppl getting completly MOBBED, but hey, you live, you learn.

I hope we didnt cause to many problems with the home owners, its one thing to have fun, but at anothers expense it losses its worth. One thing scouts taught me was "that you always leave the place better than when you got there", i only hope we managed to do that.

Thanx for teh fun, lets hope its just as good when we return tha favour next month down at SGL !!!!!
