The tension is building here as we ramp up our preparation for the Fifth Birthday party. In recent weeks crowds in #Wingnut have swelled to around half where we'd normally be at a special irc event, so we expect this year to be our biggest ever. I promised last time that we'd have more specifics on prizes soon. Though I don't have quantities yet, we will have several Game Boy Advances with Prophecy Advance, Wing Commander novels, action figures, rare collectible cards, copies of the Movie on DVD, Movie posters, and the like. If people are interested, we have some related EA/Origin goods such as copies of the latest Ultima Online and Earth & Beyond up for grabs as well. If you haven't jotted down the details yet, here they are once again.
Mark your calendars for either Sunday, August 10, 2003 or Monday, August 11, 2003 depending on your time zone. At around 7:00 pm US Eastern (4:00 pm US Pacific, 11:00 pm GMT or 7:00 to 9:00 am Australian) we will all be formally getting together online at our new IRC server (irc.wcnews.com) in #Wingnut.Joining the fun is easy. If you've never visited irc before, you can connect to us directly through most web browsers here.
