Hey guys, me and my older business partner are entering into a new venture, its going to be called adrenaLAN, its basically gonna be a LAN event that will happen every so often up in manchester, we have a air conditioned venue sorted thats air conditioned etc, there will be a bar selling cheap fosters, soft drinks, crisps etc, and there is a local Pizza/Indian/Chinese.

To get the comunity going we just layed out some money for a games server, not the highest of specs but it should be good none the less (Dual MP 2400, 2Gb Ram etc etc) its gonna be located in Redbus III which has 20gbit of external bandwidth capacity

On the online server (which is how we hope to build the majority of the comunity) we'll be playing various games, BF1942/BF 'nam/Jedi Knight/Doom3/CS/SOF2 etc

Will anyone here be interested? would be nice to see some friendly faces in the community, also if it does take off properly will any of you be able to make it to manchester for the event?

I will update you when the website is up (DNS being sorted atm)

Thanks for your time!

My next business venture

Manchester is a hell of a trek, but if there are enough people and its normal 3-4 days long then I might be interested.

i'm always up for a good lan, machester is only a short drive over the penines for me. speaking from previous experience you'll have problems getting lazy gamers to lans these day, with th advent of broadband you can get good ping at home and the appeal isn't as great anymore. bf-dc is my main game but i'll play bf-vanila or nam. and i'd play in the server.

thanks for your input baron, lets me know what im letting myself in for :P

the first LAN probably wont be till Jan, reason being is that it gives me enuff time to get setup and well established, the venue will house around 40-50 (want to start it off small to minimise the risk of loosing lots of investments)

probably the first LAN event will only be 1-3 days (will be confirmed nearer the time after ive had more input)

Ive just uploaded the first version of the site, it isnt complete yet, literally the index page, links arent set yet, its just to find any bugs and running issues:

www.adrenelan.org.uk

Opinions would be greatly appreciated, go easy tho guys :P

I may be interested in this mate. The ol grandparents live up in manchester so wouldn't be too much of a prob it's just getting the PC up there .

The site looks great, only one thing is that the banner at the top is HUGE, seems to take up nearly half the screen (15" TFT 1024 by 768) but apart from that very nice.

yes the flash header is rather large im afraid

ive temporarily had to change the URL until some things are sorted, my plan is to transfer the website to my box when its installed as the current host (1and1) dont run PHP straight off of the domain.

Well there was some data base syncing problems with the other site i was using (till i can transfer the DNS of my URL to my box at the data centre)

But as you can see now, content is rapidly being uploaded, aswell as some funcy custom coded scripts here and there :P
