Mindless Moments
Holy LAN-Parties!

Yesterday was the day we slept finally. A LAN Party I'll never forget. We had Unreal Tournament and Counter Strike and Red Alert, all of them Amazing!!

Four Head on battlers, treating each other to fire laden launchers and snipe victims! God must have wondered who the curses were meant for. :-)

There was lihkin, sharat and brainz for the party. Ofcourse, there was the ever crazee angiasaa to take the blame for cutting off lihkin's computer from the power lines a couple of times. But all in all, I think we made some really good fun of the whole picture. :o)

The day started at 8:00 pm for me, lihkin and brainz started earlier, around 6:30 pm if I'm not too dearly mistaken.... Half the night, we spent riding around town finding Cables, Connectors and a Crimp! The other half was to fetch CK (who crimped our connectors very sweetly to our cables) he was also at the Party for a while. But pity be as it is, he could'nt stay long enough to be killed in rapid succession after respawning so often, God could have had a heart attack! And then, at a need for sustainance, we (aka brainz and Myself) decided to fetch some food from Paradise. Paradise was freshly out of nudelj (Noodles aka Chowmein). We decided on Barista but the junk there was holy expensive!! Finally, we decided to go fetch sharat from his place, (He's the rich guy with the 17" monitor and the gawd awesome looking thinkgeek Tee! :o) )

One homerun later, we connect the computers into a good ol' network and lihkin, brainz and myself go off to Hotel Green Park to catch a bite at their Oh So Famous "Midnight Biriyani". It was a lousy treat!

First off, we reach there and the waiter says "Food's out!" we see food still around on the buffet tables and another waiter says "Sure, but only the Vegetarian Biriyani...." We say it'll do, and grab our plates and hungry as we were, lifted shovel fulls of Veg-Biriyani! loades our plates, we had each a plateful of Biriyani, Raita (A blend of Yogurt, onions, some green things {a variety of green vegatables I believe} and some tomatoes squared and rectangulated), Mirchi ka Salan (a dish prepared with an aewsome Hyderabadi© Explosive Chillis. It's a Salan of Mirchis that's Chillis. In this case, ultra super hot!), some kewl salad, with carrots and cucumbers both with grilled holes through them, and a couple of other things I don't recollect now.... The first waiter comes back and tell s up that the place is shutting down adn we'd better hurry up and eat cause that's the last helping on our plates. We later realise that There's still food on the buffet tables and we can eat more, having wolfed down our tremendous first helpings, we move back adn re-fill our plates. A second round later, we realise that having wolfed down the food the way we did, we'd hardly been able to fill ourselves with food, more air and vapour than actual food constituents! Yuk. At about 550 INR, it was a meal we should have had at Barista NEways. :oP

We get back all bloated and tummy heavy, get back to our computers and begin the saga. lihkin or brainz will o the honors of minuting the LAN Party, so I think I'll grab my armfull of sleep now. More on this later.... :o)


To whoever is the LAN God, Kaydeeyoh to you too!

Of meltdowns and crashes
You didn't cover the real heat. Actually, the party was s'posed to comprise of 6 more people. 1 d00d (Abhishek)'s hdd crashed. karthik had some problems on a personal front so he couldn't make it. Sujit's mobo melted down, so he and 3 of his friends couldn't come either. Suman did come but his vid card couldn't power our initial burst of UT.. so he was kinda kept busy playing Cradle of Filth on his dabba. :)

All in all it was crazy fun! Mine and angiasaa's eyes were something to dr00l on! :D We plan to have another go at the party sometime soon, hopefully before June leaves us in the dark. I've always loved June (hint: It starts off with my b'day! ;)). sharat informed me of Sledge and Native Tongue (?) playing at One Flight Down t'morrow night. So, we might camp down there all the way into the next day. I guess preperations for the next LAN party can start once we're done with that! :D

Counterstrike is either too tough with the bots or we're too lame. I admit I was having a go for the first time, but I was being sniped/machine-gunned a few minutes into the game. Yeah, sad, really.

brainz and angiasaa were nuking/blimping me and sharat. Except brainz, we were all new to Red Alert 2. However, looks like the stars have their own ways to play a joke. Once sharat left (mumble..mumble..guitar class..mumble..mumble), it was brainz and angiasaa against poer ol' me. But, meanwhile I'd finally managed to get a hold of this game, and I blimped them both, till Sid was forced to resign. :D

When is the next LAN partah!?!?!?!? How 'bout t'nite?

Hell Yeah!

Re: Of meltdowns and crashes
Yeah I know pal, The actual heat was eating into my sleep scenario. While you were watching 'Bend It Like Beckham', I was ill-fated and sleepy. :o) I was full charged to finish off what i had started, but with eyelids shutting over my face and sleep not far from the inevitable cancerous state, hmmm I figured it'd be better to let you guys patch in the unplugged holes fer me. ;o)

I really felt bad for Suman (aka namus) tho, He really would have had the best time of his life if luck had been on his side. :(
I guess it was just one of his 'bad-comp-days' :oP

As for sharat's Oooh Guitar class push-a-la GtG (GTG Now - Today, Now!!!) ;o) Hmmm.... I guess he had a reason man, He's da next big thing to happen to the bass of all time. :oP

T'nite? hmm I wish I could man, I'm a little booked but let's see how we can inch a few things around so we kinda fit in haan!

Golly great scott and samurai secrets! This is a follow-up, not a bird soup!
