I'm the P.R.O. of DubWAN, the Dublin Wide Area Network (http://dublin.irishwan.org.) A volunteer run organisation building a dublin county community based wireless network.
We already have dozens of users, and the number is growing. I'm from the irish quake/cs scene, and I know that a number of other cs players are planning on joining the network as wireless gives < 10 milisecond latencies and so is great for gaming.
So anyway, would ign be interested in linking their servers into DubWAN? This would mean dublin gamers could get slpb, always on, no charge, connections to the ign game servers? Irish players could play with <10 ms connections, and I'm sure that irish gamers would be interested in this option.
Our next monthly meeting is on saturday 31st in The Clarendon Pub from 3pm (details on DubWAN homepage), if any of you are interested you could come along and we'll answer any questions you have. Or you can post here, or email me.
