Frequently Asked Questions

 

What is ASLAN?

ASLAN is LAN Party which aims to promote the Air-Stream community wireless and lanning in the northern suburbs.

What do I need to bring to ASLAN?

You'll need your computer system, equipped with a network card (your modem is NOT your network card). We'll provide the tables, chairs, power and necessary network hardware and network cable. We can't always promise more than one power point per lanner so if you need more be sure to bring a power board. We also recommend you bring headphones instead of speakers. If using speakers understand that ASLAN admins may direct you to turn your speakers down so that you will not take away from fellow ASLanners having a good time.

Who do I ask for help at ASLAN?

 

  • Troy (Front Desk / General Operations)
  • Scott Cichon (Promotions / General Admin)
  • Chris Cichon (Network Admin)
  • Matthew Thompson (General / Gaming)
  • Paul Parry (Gaming Admin)
  • Michael Kellow (Gaming Admin)
  • Tobby Gnome (Gaming Admin)
  • shadey (Ticket sales, Catering Admin)
  • Jimmy (l33t Chef)

 

Can I bring a dedicated server to ASLAN?

Yes. Provided an admin knows about it. In this case, Chris Cichon (DrGeforce3) or a member of the server team should be apprised of the additional machine. Under no circumstances are private file servers permitted. This only applies to game servers, which must be located in the farm.

Is there parking at ASLAN?

Parking at Hillcrest Community Centre is in plentiful supply. You should have no problems as its all close to the venue.

Where can I buy food at ASLAN?

As of ASLAN #15, ASLAN is now a catered event. We have the best pies out of any LAN in SA and our resident chef "Jimmy" is always ready to cook up new tasty dishes to provide calories and nutrition to keep you lanning longer.

What else do I need to do before ASLAN?

 

  • Make sure you have allowed Windows to Update! Please visit www.windowsupdate.com.
  • Make sure you have an up to date anti-virus program. Make sure that your computer is also free of virii. Anyone found to be transmitting a virus over the ASLAN network will have the network access removed until the issue is rectified to the satisfaction of one of our admins.
  • Check your network settings are set to Automatic.

 

May I sell things at ASLAN?

Provided prior permission is sought then all things are possible. Permission is not required to pickup equipment that has already been agreed upon elsewhere.

Clarification of these and anything else can be sought by emailing the committee
