AUCKLAN - Those where the memories

On 16-17 July 2004 and 4-5 December 2004 co-hosted AuckLAN on Auckland's North Shore. AuckLAN was run twice for about 30-40 computer gamers wanting to play computer games against their peers on a fast network. Each event ran for around 24 hours. Back in 2004 the typical internet connection was either a 128 or 256kbs snail’s pace ADSL connection or even worse dial-up, so it wasn’t the best for playing online games. The LAN was setup to allow games to play without lag. The network connection to each PC was 10/100Mbs. The CRT screens where still popular with only a few LCD screens used.

This page has been created to remember those events. They were both fun events to go to.
