We're excited to announce that there is exactly one month until the CIC's Fifth Birthday. We're already scrambling to get everything ready in time. This will be our biggest event yet, and we hope you can join us. Here's the most important details.
Mark your calendars for either Sunday, August 10, 2003 or Monday, August 11, 2003 depending on your time zone. At around 7:00 pm US Eastern (4:00 pm US Pacific, 11:00 pm GMT or 7:00 to 9:00 am Australian) we will all be formally getting together online at our new IRC server (irc.wcnews.com) in #Wingnut. Some people have been confusing the Birthday Party for our annual trip down to Atlanta. These are two separate events. Coming to the party has never been easier! Simply download mirc or click on our Java Client here. After the party start time, we will be putting the finishing touches on special CIC projects and giving away cool prizes. At 8:00 pm US Eastern (5:00 pm US Pacific, midnight GMT or 8:00 to 10:00 am Australian) we will count down the last few seconds to our official Fifth Birthday and unveil our special projects. This should be our most exciting party to date, and I hope many of you can join us.
So that's it! Please stop by #Wingnut prior to the party so that you can get familiar with the program and check your time zones with us. We'll be posting more details over the next four weeks. We've already mentioned that prizes for the night will include several Game Boy Advances and copies of Prophecy Advance. Hope to see you there!
