63: Valentine’s used surprise, Saturday Sojourn Flinched

Saturday lost 14HP, Saturday Fainted

This fifteenth of February will be the last Sojourn I can physically participate in for a while. For on the twenty eighth I’ll be going on holidays to Europe for two months. I haven’t been able to get SteamOS to run from a thumb drive, so I’ll be taking Lubuntu13.10 as my OSinPocket, The killing floor will run fine from it. So this sojourn that and other linux compatible cross platformers are on the cards. In addition it will be Valentine’s day today. MWO usually has an event for this and I’m keen to give mech battling another go. Another possibility is to follow Sam’s suggestion of War Thunder, a F2P sim that should have full Oculus compatibility, Also with the rift we could trial AAaaAAa, HAWKEN, DARK or TF2.

We have avoided this several times now. I think I’ve not got much more value to glean from the official incorporation than what I’ve already achieved. I was hoping to have been to a “Queensland Computers” sojourn by now and met some like minded technomancers but…
So rather than me paying for another year, I’m happy to let it lapse.
Or transfer ownership to ATW, letting them take care of the insurance and in turn we hold some events there (buying their food, using their internet). Inherently this opens it up for easier access to strangers/the public and will mean I have less ownership.
Either way I’m going to keep inviting you all over to my house for jolly Co-Op on a somewhat regular fortnightly basis. If somebody else wants to donate the dosh to keep being incorporated I can help out with that and I think we are still operating legally and have enough members to maintain the club.

Day after
Sunday 16th ~1am I’ll be leaving from my house to go to Utopia rock pools, somewhat south of Biggenden, for a hike. The first time I went there was a bit of a waterfall and a few rockpools 3xlarger than my bathtub. Last time I went there the water was a pretty green colour, not flowing and smelt atrocious. If we start walking up the creek at ~2:30pm then we should finish in the cool of the evening and (hopefully) may be able to go for a swim.

WHEN: Satuday 15th 10am till 12am

WHERE: Wind room

WHAT: MWO, LOL, Killing floor, War Thunder, Civ V

WHAT TO BRING: Arrange food and drink here

WHO: Who's expected to be coming? Who is coming late? Who is leaving early? Who doesn't have a computer?

62: Sunday Sojourn used LoL, it’s super effective

Lots of lols: Highlight a reddit pic an a unique youtube video to bring and share. We always seem to do this anyway so I thought to put it in the plan. Lols for lol after lunch, later lamenting the lack of Australiana in computergames. Possibly some path of exile, potentially Baladours Gate? That new HD release.

As a side note:
saturday pre sojourn P.E.

WHEN: 26 Jan, 2pm or whenever Ben gets back from church

WHERE: Wind room, bring a friend (or a Fan)

WHAT: What games are planned as major events?
  • League of Legends (AJ's fave)
  • Just Cause 2 Multilayer Mod (total imhibition)
  • E.Y.E Divine Cybermancey (we didnt actually get going last time)
  • Guild Wars 2, (It's about time we do the next dungeon...then again, maybe not)
  • Path of Exile (Rask still hasnt really co-opped this one)
  • Realm of the Mad God (for during install wars and to test the internets)
WHAT TO BRING: Ben found chocolate coffee icecream behind the Sorbet, ther may be some left by then.

61 - Josh posted this.

Lan Description of some sort that Josh made up. Says something about a Sojourn on this weekend. It sounds interesting. Josh is really good at doing this kind of thing. Yay LAN.

WHEN: Saturday 18th January 4pm til midnight. then possibly follow up after church on Sunday 19th.

WHERE: Tony's place (Bargara) (he doesn't know yet (again))

WHAT: What games are planned as major events? None specifically.
However some games that look interesting are:
  • Tribes Ascend (for the skiing :D)
  • Just Cause 2 Multilayer Mod (for the Chaos :3)
  • E.Y.E Divine Cybermancey (new characters and themes for them sound like fun (NO CHANGING ONCE STARTED!!!))
  • Guild Wars 2, (It's about time we do the next dungeon...)
  • League of Legends (always a good filler)
Other games (excluding GW2) we haven't gone too far in or haven't played in a while:
  • Path of Exile
  • Realm of the Mad God

WHAT TO BRING: Arrange food and drink here, (wow this is in the template for Sojourns)
How bout we have some pasta instead :D. Without olives.
Alternatives could be Lasagne, Pies, Pizza.

WHO: Who's expected to be coming? Who is coming late? Who is leaving early? Who doesn't have a computer?

60 - First lan of the year

Tony mentioned off hand that he might be free on Wednesday so we unofficially decided that there should be another sojourn at his house. Someone should really let Tony know about this.

WHEN: Wednesday 01/01/13 check facebook for times

WHERE: Tony's place (bargara)

WHAT: Starbound seems likely to make an appearance.

WHAT TO BRING: BYO Fan seemed to be a hit at the last sojourn.Sam can buy yet more pepsi and dinner can be arranged as per usual by putting it off until we're hungry and scrounging together money for whatever shops are open.

WHO: Sam, Ben, Eugene, and possibly even both Hicks seem likely to make an appearance - hopefully Tony as well or we'll need to find somewhere else to host.

Comment below to discuss. Otherwise, see you there!

59 - Even later end-of-year lan

There was a short notice 1200-2400 sojourn on 30/12/13. Consisted almost entirely of Starbound.

WHEN: 30/12/13

WHERE: Windroom

WHAT: Starbound

WHAT TO BRING: Edward bought chicken and salad and we all ate like refined gentlemen

WHO: 7 attendees all up? Sam's sister attended but did enjoy starbound, which was unfortunate because it wound up being the only game we played

58 - Bonus Stage

Sam has his parents' house to himself this weekend so this calls for one last hurrah as we end 2013 in  airconditioned comfort.

WHEN: Saturday 21/12/13. Any time after 9am until midnightish. Maybe spilling over into Sunday if schedules permit.

WHERE: Sam's Parents' place. Ask on Facebook if you need the specific address

WHAT: Killing floor was apparently quite successful last week. Path of Exile worked well for those who can't attend physically. LoL and a handful of others may contend for Install Wars' time.

WHAT TO BRING: Sam apparently has a large tray of sausages and a bit of chirstmas ham at his disposal. Will probably wind up buying a box of pepsi max but other flavours are more than welcome.

If everyone can try to bring a few LAN cables that'd help as I don't have Ben's existing infrastructure.Ben's second switch would be helpful and maybe even a table if attendance picks up. I won't be able to confirm what's available at the house until I arrive on Friday night.

WHO: Sam hosting. Josh, not-Stan, Ben and Kyle expected to show up some point on Saturday. Ben-kin may still be in town? Sam will be playing on his tablet or his sisters' computer while his has its PSU replaced but there should be at least one other subpar gaming computer in the house.
