Default DeXLan 2010

There has been a lot of discussion and now is the time to commit. We need a list of people strongly interested in attending. We are looking at a late June date and need to find out how many people would be willing to participate to see if it is viable. The LAN would be held in Detroit. Typically, I arrange for the meeting space and receive a discount on the room rates for the two days (Friday thru Sunday).

Based on previous numbers, we would need about 20 people to make this work, so if you have the means and want to participate, sign up now.

A target weekend or month?

Maybe people should post what they think would work best for them keeping it at least a month or 2 in advance.

The issue would be ban width. Most hotels don't give you but a sliver of banwidth to DL email, etc. Plus who on the east or west coast has a machine capable of running a server and knows how to set it up?

I have never been to a Lan party before......Would I be right in assuming I need to bring a monitor as well as my Computer?

I'm in, provided I can get a way down there. I've confirmed that the lan will NOT interfere with my California trip.
