    6) social engineering (clans etc.)
    7) educational (tips and tricks
    If you're going to play games, you don't have to worry quite so much about people cheating on some online games... although at the last LAN-party I was at, a guy from school kept saying I must be cheating (I was dominating on the Counter-Strike maps)... I invited him to swap computers after he wouldn't shut up about it, and he replied: "No, because I don't want to be a cheater."

    So I'd say there's an additional element of trust and perhaps politeness, in that people tend to be nicer when they are in the same room than when they are a continent away. It's harder to be insulting, since if the guy on the other end *IS* built like Schwarzenegger, he *can* come over and give you a piece of his mind. :P

    Forget going all the way to Ireland, why not just do a WAN party? It will be the same as a LAN party, only we'll have higher pings, and we won't actually see each other. PARTY!!!

    Post Greek

    Meeting Sebastos? I can't wait (sarcasm)
    We could visit some historical buildings?

    I like the trust thing mentioned by Terr.
    In my writing I spoke about competition without anonimity so I could implement Terr's idea.

    Terr: can I quote you in a writing?

    <shrugs> Sure, fine, as long as you don't quote it like this:

    So I'd say there's an additional element of --a--ss--, in that people tend to be --i--d--i--o--t--S-- :P
