LAN Party

Worth 2 Club points

***Please bring tables, chairs, exstension cords, and of course anything you need to game!***

A LAN party is a party where people bring their own computers, hook them up, and game with each other long into the night. Also involves mass consumption of caffeine and junk food.

We have a new awesome location!

Tell us what consoles and games you are bringing/want to play below!

Bring some snacks and drinks (no alcohol).

The event is officially ending at 1am but I'm sure there will be people gaming long after that!

Make sure to RSVP here. Feel free to invite your friends, as long as they select that they are going.

Micro Computer Workshop, Oct 13th

The event started off with team selection followed by group efforts towards selecting the competition's problem set.
We then had 3 hours to complete as many problems as possible.
The club learned several lessons from this event including the apparent need to place bigger emphasis on selecting a reasonable problem set (...they were a bit too hard). It was still a lot of fun, but only "The
RED Herring" team fully solved a problem.

Brian Fox Guest Speech

Brian Fox, also known as bfox, will coming to talk for the club next semester!

bfox is the inventor of Bash, and if you've taken the Linux class at SBCC, you've certainly used it.

"Bash is a Unix shell and command language written by Brian Fox for the GNU Project as a free software replacement for the Bourne shell. First released in 1989, it has been distributed widely as it is a default shell on the major Linux distributions and OS X..... Bash has also been ported to Microsoft Windows" -from Bash (Unix shell) Wikipedia Page

Stay tuned for more information!
