    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).

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:

    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 ??

    It's been awhile since PowersGaming put on a Winter LAN, but this past January's event proved to be a huge success. How was it better than previous events ? The weather for starters... Night temps were in the low 40's while daytime temps barely climbed into the mid 50's so there wasn't a constant battle against computer heat :\

    Tho it constantly rained throughout the entire event, the back porch (above; completely covered in plastic) provided the perfect place to relax.
