RE: Should Canada Computers Host a LAN fest.
Hell yes, I would go, LANs are a great time. You do end up spending more time discussing each others rigs then you do gaming, but its all good fun.

The only problem is some of us are near Toronto and some are near Ottawa, it would be nice to have one big event, but the location is in question along with transportation and timing. I would book a day off work for this though if it was on a Friday.

RE: Should Canada Computers Host a LAN fest.
It would depend if someone is driving from either Laval-Ottawa-Kingston towards Toronto. Nevertheless I think i'd be benifical. If CC were smart, they'd stock the games that are available to play.

I even forget you can see sigs.

heh.

I think a hall with lots of power (and internetz) would have to be rented out for a night, they did this once before IIRC.

Hamilton is not in the GTA becuase it is just outside of it, cities such as Oakville/Richmond Hill/Vaughan are part of the GTA because they are literally attached to Toronto due to expansion of all of them.

Sprogis, if you can make this happen I will totally be there. The only factor is there is 2 "groups", Ottawa and GTA. Perhaps we can figure out carpooling somehow?

That said, If travel should be an issue, it might be possible to have it in two locations, one in Ottawa and one in the GTA and connect over a server yes?
