The website was down at fault of our hosting provider. This also disabled the Netfest mailing list. Everything is working again, finaly.

There will be another attempt at organization this upcoming netfest. More team based games will be played, and to make things quicker, balanced Teams will be set up before hand. There is even talk of networking Diablo II.

Not much to talk about at the moment. Japi has been working on his linux media player server interface. Windsinger almost has the new AXiA website ready to go.

How about a non-sequitur:
[15:33] eMpTy: no no...quake 3 is ass on a stick!
[15:39] Windsinger: But it's good. it has fun. It's pure naked, wet, exhilirating action. it's pureness of nudity is the primal attraction to it. Quake 3 0wnz.
[15:40] eMpTy: I have quicktime installed (just gonna ignore that quake 3 comment)

Turkey Day Netfest reminder! It is still on the Saturday after Turkey Day, which would make the date November 30th.

Remote Gaming IP:
Quake 3 Arena v.1.32 w/ Punk Buster &
Unreal Tournament 2003 v.2136 are accessible at their default gameports.

DDD Games IRC Server:
Channel: #netfest

Use the IRC server during the netfest to leave messages, map changes and game requests, and also check server stats with the Statbot!

Some some software/hardware changes in preperation for this 'fest,
which resulted in a new dedicated gaming server. After a problem with the power supply exploding was worked out, it seems to be running decently.

The machine currently hosts UT2003 and Q3TA games, with decent ping times for the people I have seen playing. So maybe remote gaming will work nicely this time.

We're going to try a different contest this time for a prize. The challenge consists of a very non-standard joystick configuration to play a standard FPS game. The game & joystick configuration will be determined at the netfest, along with the goals in the game you must try to pass.

Interested in coming? Need directions? email jpimble
