BMB_Stinger is hosting a late-December LAN party in the San Francisco Bay Area, to fall on the dates of December 28th and 29th! The games being played will include Counter-Strike 1.6, StarCraft (w/Broodwar), Battlefield 2, Battlefield 2142, Warcraft III (w/The Frozen Throne), Unreal Tournament 2004, Half-Life Deathmatch, Jedi Outcast, and for Xbox360, Halo 2 and Gears of War! The LAN will last all night, and will most likely be the largest LAN ever hosted by the Band of Maniacal Brothers.
Charlie and Burnout were able to make it to JoshuaFest 2006 this year and it was a blast! We got to see the likes of Project 86, Thousand Foot Krutch, Pillar, Family Force 5, Hawk Nelson, Falling Up, Ever Stays Red, Metallica, Bob Marley, and even the Beatles! To visit the official JoshuaFest website go to www.joshuafest.com. We stayed in a campsite with a few people we had met at Spirit West Coast, and we met a bunch of new people as well! Music brings the coolest people together under the strangest of circumstances, and JoshuaFest proved this fact once again, in an even clearer way than is usually the case! (Did I mention that we all jumped off a bridge?)
The Band of Maniacal Brothers will have another new subdomain up very soon! (By the time you read this, it will probably already be up!) The domain is located at the web address http://swc.bombhq.com and is a Spirit West Coast 2006 Contact List! Spirit West Coast was amazingly good and all of the Maniacal Brothers who attended (Quimby, Charlie, Venom, Warrior X, and others) enjoyed it thoroughly. The new subdomain is comprised of a contact list which was compiled with the help of Badger Hunter and Josh Kasper, and it will be open to new entries daily, so if you have questions or comments regarding this new feature on the BoMB site, please just type up an email to Charlie, and he will respond quickly and hospitably.
The Band of Maniacal Brothers have a new subdomain coming soon! It had been merely conceptual for quite some time, but now is finally being brought into reality by not only an extremely skilled team of web developers, but also a directorial mastermind who will oversee the day-to-day development and maintenance of the project.
The project is known as Nebulous Firefight, and will introduce a way for Daniel Turner to showcase his many literary works without departing from a single environment. This will effectively eliminate the necessity of separate internet sites for each of his works, as he will now be able to display them all from one encompassing location.
w00t! The forums are finally up!
The BoMB Forums are finally back online, and have had the previous InvisionFree database restored to them. Even though you may have to choose your avatar again, because we changed servers altogether regarding the database, you still have all your posts and of course, your post count. All the old topics are intact, even though some of the images have been lost, such as a few of the smileys and some of the locally hosted images (which are still on the old server and the links are now broken and will no longer work). But anyways, have fun posting, and tell your friends about the forums, etc. I will be working out the current issues regarding the smileys and crap. It will be all good soon.
