    We're in the process of building a completely New Website, which will replace our Current Site and Forum. Jordan should have this finished by the time registration opens in May. Thanks in advance for your patience...

    We'd like to thank everybody for coming out; especially the volunteers who worked all week to help finish constructing our venue. Thanks also to those individuals who pitched in during the event with stocking, cleaning, etc..

    We greatly appreciate all that you guys do for us. Without you, these events would not be possible. Your continued support over the years has provided a wonderful experience for hundreds of gamers; some of which might never have known what it's like to attend a "LAN Party".

    We have completed the setup on the inside of the venue; the network, with all of our servers and switches, is now up and running on 300 x 20 with Cat6 homerunned to all tables. Additional AC's have been installed to make sure the venue stays frigid. Thanks to the volunteers who help out year after year.

    Team Captains have been selected and teams will be created this week; this weekend we'll construct the "Sports Bar" out back.

    Next
    week will consist of meals and food prep. We did change the menu slightly; brisket from La Barbecue will now be served on Friday night, and we're grilling Ribeye steaks on Saturday night. Hope you come hungry...

    For those of you who don't live in Austin, Google Fiber is arriving soon, with speeds of 1,000 down and 1,000 up (link). Excellent news for all of us living here, but the announcement also had a ripple effect with other Austin carriers. For instance, Time Warner decided to offer a free upgrade to 300x20 (source) for those customers who currently had the "Ultimate 50x5" plan. That speed increase is now effective:



    We're pretty excited about this next event, as gaming never looked better on 300x20. Looking forward to seeing you next month!

    Times have changed. After years of running Ventrilo with a few daring escapades into TS3, we finally settled on Mumble as our voice server and haven't looked back since. For FPS Gamers, low latency is everything, and Mumble delivers. With Overlays, FPS counters and clarity so rich it's like we're all in the same room, hey... What took us so long ??

    We're excited to be hosting this next event at a new venue, which features increased area for more players and a larger parking area for vehicles. A more powerful electrical service offers us greater flexibility for new hardware, and the location (near 183 and 45 in Cedar Park, TX) is easily accessible from anywhere.
