Sorry guys, my maybe is now a definitive no. Really hoping these keep happening though. I swear I'll make one of these eventually.

Black1ce needs to back out unfortunately...something completely unforseen came up at the last minute. Thankfully, I'm still good to go!

See you gents tonight!

Nice to meet Scott Alex, Scott Alex, and Alex Scott, and glad to see Scott Yogi, Scott John, Scott Jason, Scott Michael, and Scott Matthew as always. Am I forgetting anyone? Next time we should definitely make bar plans for after.

Looking forward to the next meetup!

EDIT: And I agree, Stump, bar plans are a must.

Is anyone else's Rogers Internet down?

I don't know why the hell I'm paying so much money to this piece of shit company.

Also, interestingly, if I had a pre-DRM reversal X1, I'd be fucked right now :p

On the plus side, your internet will be fixed a lot quicker than if you were with TekSavvy. But if you can stomach longer down time, I recommend TekSavvy.
TekSavvy is down too. Plus, Rogers Internet, for me, is actually cheaper than the equivalent TekSavvy Internet thanks to bundles (and it's unlimited to boot).

Still can't get a PS4 in Ottawa without luck, I phoned ebgames, Walmart, BestBuy, FutureShop, they don't know when they'll get their next shipment and they only get 3-5 per shipment.

Yeah the snow and the cold snap the last few days have really been unexpectedly shitty. I'm going to LA for a few days next month though, suckers!

Melting snow, the end of the semester, the internet imploding from SSL vulnerabilities...

Is it time to leave hibernation Ottawa GAF?

If you just ignore the media its the same place it has always been. Only time I have to deal with negative OttawaU news is when I open up twitter or facebook. Go Gee-Gee's ;)
The collective student organization insanity didn't really make the news.

Does anyone know of any free tennis courts in Ottawa? Specifically in the Barrhaven/Nepean area?

These tennis clubs are annoyingly expensive....

i think the one beside the pinecrest swimming pool/rink is free.
Hmmmm, this is at the Pinecrest Park Community Centre, right?

It's a bit of a drive away, but I'll check it out. Courts look nice on Google Maps :p

Thanks!

Long shot, but if anyone is looking for any good PSP games cheap, EB Games are blowing out their used games at $5 each... I was in the Merivale store near the Futureshop & BestBuy yesterday and they had Persona 2 and P3P, Undead Knights, Mytran Wars, and a lot of other decent games priced to clear...

Anyone going to OIGC in a couple weeks? I doubt there will be a ton of demos and such but there's some interesting (mainly developer-focused) speakers. Mill St. is serving beer I think. I got a media pass, but haven't decided whether to go on Monday or Tuesday. I can only do one day 'cause the wife'll have to take a day off.
