CompSoc charity LAN in 091 Labs for Habitat for Humanity


Fresh from the NUI Galway CompSoc mailing list =) Charity LAN!

CompSoc are holding an epic LAN in the fantastic 091labs (http://091labs.com) who have generously / foolishly given us their home for the night. The bloodshed and battle will commence at 4pm on Saturday, the 31st of March.

There will be free pizza for all who attend to keep you pwning throughout the night and a tuck shop for all those who need MOAR sugar to fuel their EXTRA PWNAGE!!!!11! (etc.)

The event is in aid of Habitat for Humanity, who improve the living conditions in Africa substantially by building houses.

All materials will be provided.

Places are limited so please book your place by emailing info@091labs.com

Pizza, Python, Posters, LANs and user groups.


WARNING: This might be a bit of a long post. Some parts of it have been waiting a while because blogging is the devil.

First off, we’d like to thank our friends at Four Star Pizza. We had our AGM (minutes here!) back at the end of November and they gave us a few pizzas for it. Now that Christmas is over and we’re well into the new year we figure that people have enough money again to be spending on random stuff… like pizza. Anyway, they have a new menu and a few deals going at the minute and we’d recommend having a look at them!
