::LAN, Gaming and Arcade Event::

Several years ago in the year 2000, gamers from all over the valley descended upon a residence somewhere in Mission, Tx. Tables were set up, drinks were put on ice, and breakers were blown. What ensued was a night filled with Counter Strike, Unreal Tournament, and copious consumption of caffeine. NinjaLan remains to many a defining moment of the best 2000 gaming had to offer up there in the hallowed halls along with Hard Drive Cafe, Sector Zero Technologies, Chat Rooms Cyber Cafe, Bawm Lan and Shabobo Lan. Here and now 20 years later I am proud to announce The Return of Ninja Lan. So blow the dust off your old cd binder, brush up on your l337 speak, pack up your pc, and join us for The Return of Ninja Lan!

If you are bringing your own computer it must be in good working condition, virus free, and have games pre-installed. Your computer must be set to obtain an ip address via DHCP (most are by default) You will be provided power, networking, and space for your computer.

You can ask neighbors or other experienced users and it is at their discretion to help you troubleshoot non-basic issues.
