I don't often swear on the forums, but as this is a private sub-forum and this news is of profound importance to me:

*BEEP* YEAH, I'M GOING TO BE SO FULL OF STONE WILLY'S*

Seriously, best LAN news ever. I don't care that pizza makes me ill. It is going to happen and my body will learn to cope for a few days.

* I thought it best to get that innuendo out of the way quickly

The Ricoh pizza last event wasn't fantastic (it was ok though).

If you read that tweet and some of the replies, it sounds like stone willies are giving Ricoh some advice / they have bought proper ovens etc but that they aren't actually getting a stone willies franchisee in to make them like at Telford. Either way it sounds like there should be good pizza :)

Edit: see thread for pictures etc

If that guy is correct jim ;)

At i51 (the only event they have held there so far) there was a desk delivery system again. However the choice was not as big as the choice if you actually went to the food bit - there were some things you just couldn't order. I don't know why so i don't know if it will be changed this time or not. There was also no tuck shop deliveries to desk at all.

So they definitely still have the system in place, i just can't guarantee how much will be available through it :)

Only the expensive one shows the OS installed. Do the cheaper ones come with some form of *shudder* Linux on them? ;)

One would have to presume that theres an OS. BTW I think, imo anyway, they're a great price.

I imagine that the rules will be the same as Telford was. As they have a pizza place on site they won't let you bring in takeaway pizza.

Everything else was fair game though, curry, Chinese, fish and chips, fried chicken...
