Aww thanks man. Yea we are changing how we advertise with the new features of our LAN that should make it a worth-while experience for any PC gaming enthusiast. Like last lan party we'd run HL2DM servers and announce that the first person to reach 75 frags on dm_overwatch would get a prize and the server filled instantly and it was MADNESS for about 25 minutes while people furiously launched chairs and tables at each other and vaporized each other with the energy ball. Good fun. So we will be doing that ALOT at this event.

Pittsburgh's not that bad =D... but yes it is a drive, can be hard to commit. Lately though I have been going to all sorts of LANs at distance and I have music in my car for the drive and an inflatable mattress that I put in the back of my car with the seats folded down to sleep (which I got at walmart for like $20 along with a car air pump for like $15... best LAN investment EVER). If the mini-lan was longer I'd definitely show up to it.

Can we bring our Bengals gear too?  Kind of like tailgating?  WHO DEY!!???

But yeah, the drive is not that bad, unless you have to hit the PA Turnpike....that thing sucks.  But from Dayton to Pittsburgh I don't believe you do.  I drive to St. Loius periodically, and it is a bit more than 5 hours, so it is doable.  Just get a book on CD and that should help.
