    Really it is rather poor we are looking to have a LAN at work one of the provisions is it won't access any of the work network i.e. it won't be attached to the internet. But of course many of the games these days being all anti-pirating require a internet connection.

    Is it just me or is it another way we are getting screwed by DRM. Whats the best way to stop software companies doing this? Is not buying the software the best way?

    Descent? I was a huge Descent (mostly 2) fan. Frittered away hours and hours on Kali.

    what kinds of games are you looking at playing? i mean, the only non-MMO games i can really think of that would require a net connection would be Steam titles, and you can play them in offline mode.

    you could also work around the work network by using a cellphone as a modem (or mobile broadband PC card, if someone has that), or set up a computer at someones house as a dial-up server, dial out from one of the lan computers (assuming you can use the phone line there) and have ICS on both ends. it wouldn't be fast at all, but should eneable you to authenticate games.
