So, of course, my other obligation on friday night fell through and I'm free from 5:00 onward. I think my finish-it project for this friday will be to Artemis installed and see if I can't figure out enough to test-drive it.

We discussed at the shop last night, and the general consensus was that we need to try this game out as a shop privately, before opening it to the broader public as an event. That being said, we need to make this happen one night in the next couple of weekends; it looks bad ass.

I have towers(some fully functional, some not) and a pico-projector. Can I get back tomorrow if it looks easy enough to give a go?

I think this is a great excuse to try out the Spaceship Bridge Simulator, Artemis (http://www.artemis.eochu.com/). Basically, one computer acts as the server, and has a projector hooked up to it. 2 - 5 other computers then connect via LAN, and each acts as various stations (engineering, weapons, etc). One person takes command as Captain, and is responsible for leading the crew. The Captain doesn't actually really interact with a computer; rather it is their job to coordinate the activities of the various stations. Unfortunately, I will be out of town, and Doug is unable to head this one up. We need someone to step up to volunteer to run this event. You don't need to be Captain; we just need someone who can make sure everyone gets hooked up to the network, get the game installed, etc. Please shoot me an email if you can run this. This one isn't set in stone yet. If you have a Friday Night event idea that you'd like to execute in 5 days, then please let me know. Thanks, Scott
