hey ryan, obviously a 'free gaming day' would generate a lot of buzz and get ppl in to check out apoc, but so do the rest of our events and ray is putting together some great promos for this summer!

solar panels would be great if it wasn't for the initial costs involved!! and yeah, that'd be the landlords call not ours, which is why I couldn't see it happening. we already do a pretty good at saving as much power as possible by turning off our unused PCs and lights.

A typical desktop computer uses about 65 to 250 watts. Solar panels dont need to be bolted down to anything, they can easily be moved.

let's say you have a big high-end computer with a gaming-level graphics card and an old CRT monitor, and you leave them on 24/7. That's about 330 watts x 24 hours x 365 days/yr = 2,890,800 watt-hours, or 2891 kilowatt-hours. If you're paying $0.14 per kWh, you're paying $405 a year to run your computer.

A 100watt solar panel will produce roughly that amount on a sunny day in one hour.

If I were a brilliant Electrician' I would have already created what Tesla invented back in the 1800's of EMF converted to electricity, transmitted wirelessly'
unfortunately even in his own blueprints- there very technical.

GET THE GAMES WORKING BEFORE YOU LOAD THEM FOR THE PUBLIC!
Nothing irritates me more than coming in wanting to play a game you guys advertise then find that the thing doesn't work. Having the game means nothing, having a working game means everything

Yea sorry man, LFD2 has been giving us a hard time since it's release, but apparently a lot of ppl are having the same problems as it's an issue with Steam and is not on our end, so all we can do is wait for a patch.
