New LAN guides

Posted on 17th October 2002

In anticipation of this weekend's LAN, I've written two guides about how compsoc LANs work and what you should bring to them.

If you've not been to a compsoc LAN before, have a read of the 'What to do' guide. If you have, you may still find the 'What to Bring' guide handy.

See you all Saturday!

It should be noted that Molotov has been up and running the whole time, although access to it has been intermittent. We apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused, but unfortunately this situation is beyond our control.
