night, the Leaf's faced elimination in Carolina, but
unbelievably, Cutis shut ‘em down! Rick Ley,
the Leaf's assistant coach, said it best, "When we
needed him (Curtis Joseph) in the third period, he
stood on his head." Thanks for the tension guys,
I need more stress in my life. Abattoir's still open
then for Game On! as we head back to Toronto!
Come on out and cheer for the Beer! …er, Leaf's!
installed two micro, wireless (with sound) colour
webcams (…Yeah, I know there's already 6, but another
couple couldn't hurt, plus Isis
hasn't even found the other ones yet! <GriN!>…)
so the MeatCAM
will be much more portable now, I can't say I'm very
impressed with one of the cameras images, so it'll
be going back… If the Abattoir looks like it's
in Winnipeg in the middle of the Winter, then you're
seeing the “funky” cam, we're working on it.
a quick update here… As some of you more studious
users have noticed, the Abattoir.BBs
is finally back online now! After it's premature
slaughter from our old ISP, and delays in the release
it's finally up and running! New features are
in place and once again, if you have your own Avatar,
please be sure to send
us an image so we can put it on the system for
to say, the work involved with moving the old forums
over was a bit too much for us right now, we thought
getting the system back up and running was more important,
so as it stands you'll have to reapply to get in!
Checked my email this morning to find out there's
yet another idiot out there (...from Africa this time…)
that has $38,000,000.00 US that they need to deposit
into my account in order to keep the corrupt government
from absorbing it. Who are these idiots?
Does anyone out there actually fall for these stupid
scams? Regardless, I've told him that I've reported
him to Interpol and wrote him back saying “I think
you might want to find a legal and honourable method
of making money, but at least in prison, you'll get
three square meals a day (...between anal rapings,
of course...)” Wonder if he'll respond.
of large amounts of money, I understand it's estimated
the US will see $120 million today in lost revenue
due to the number of people who are expected to call
in sick just to go see Star
Wars Attack of the Clones… Not sure how
they came up with that number, I guess Bill Gates
announced he was going to skip work for 3 hours to
see it… That would account for $110 million
for an evening out? Want to take in some great
live music? Want to buy a great premier CD for
$5? Want to see a former Abattoir LAN Party
player thrash it out on stage in just a thong while
wearing nipple clamps? (…Okay, I made the last part
up…) Well then, head out to The Reverb on the corner
of Bathurst and Queen in Toronto and catch the Split
CD Release Party with “Endorphins” and “Six On Nine”
Sunday, June 2nd… Creep
tells us it's going to be a blast (…and assured us
he'll keep his pants on while on stage…). It's
an All Ages event with a Bar for those 19+.
Doors open at 6pm and there's a cover charge of $3…
That's a hell of a deal to see two great local bands
pound out an evening of tunes! Want to hear
some Endorphins now? Check this clip out (Used
with permission) called “Pussy Killer”, and if you
want more, log on to the Abattoir SuperFTP and check
out the Endorphins folder (…in the uploads directory…)
for two full tunes! (Link removed for archive, check
Lord, the Leaf's move on!! It was one hell of
a loud night at the Abattoir last night as our battered
and bruised Leaf's, missing most of their team to
injury, still managed to pound their way through the
Ottawa Senators in another game 7 series in the race
for Lord Stanley's Cup! Yonge Street, downtown
Toronto, rocked and partied till the wee hours of
the morning today as thousands and thousands of die-hard
Leafs fans poured from the ACC and local bars after
the 3 to 0 shutout to clog the downtown streets in
a mass (…and well behaved…) celebration. Oh
my weakened heart, how much more can it take…
Just as before, it's no rest for the weary as the
Leaf's get no time off to recover. Game 1 of
the Leaf's vs. Hurricanes series starts tomorrow,
come on out to the Abattoir and yell with the rest
opened more ports for BTM32, there's now 4 additional
spots on the Reservation Page for additional players.
As it stands, we still have space available for this
BTM, so get recruiting if you know anyone who's not
been to a LAN Party, now is a great time to introduce
the idea! Remember, LAN Parties fill by word
of mouth, so let's get those spots filled fast.
Abattoir BBs will be back online very soon, Infopop
was a little delayed with their release of UBB6, but
it's out, we've got it, we'll be working on it tonight…
We'll let you know when we're back up!
we say farewell to BTM31, we'll get right on posting
the date for BTM32! If you sign-up for this
BTM and bail at the last minute, you'll be publicly
friggin’ flogged by all Abattoir Staff Members the
next time we get a hold of you! Although BTM31
was great and we met some new faces to the Abattoir,
it could have been better if there was not a rash
of cancellations. The following are now considered
“non-valid” excuses to bail:
Llama Lame Attendance
Missing Appendix (L.L.A.M.A.)
just take a peek at this reason… If
you do not own a vehicle, or do not have access
to a vehicle, or don't know if you can get
a ride, do not sign-up... Even we don't
expect you to walk over with your computer.
We're sick and tired of hearing this one,
it's becoming old and will no longer be accepted.
If you're not 90% sure you'll be able to GET
there, then don't bother clogging up the Reservations
Page with your name, that's not its function.
now officially have SIX WEEKS to find out
if you can get that one day off work, if you're
a weekend worker. Do NOT put your name
on the reservation listing to secure a port
and seat at BTM32 then email us Thursday night
before the Early-Bird to tell us your big-bad-boss
won't let you have the day off. Call
your boss now, and TELL him you're booking
that day off if that's what's required, when
he says “That's fine…” pull out a piece of
paper with the date written down and have
him sign it.
Unless you're bedridden with a temperature
of 102 and/or your left and/or right leg has
been brutally amputated in a horrible farm
equipment mishap, your sniffling nose doesn't
qualify as a valid reason for missing a BTM
that you've signed-up for. Get over
yourself, we have a healthy supply of Kleenex
and the Abattoir has superior Hepa Filtration
installed, I'm sure no one else will get your
plague unless they start licking your mouse
balls (…and that's not happened since Impaired
was last at a BTM…)
what!? You mean you didn't see that
coming before you signed-up? You see
her every day, this is a chance not to…
If you can dodge rockets that good, I would
hope you'd be able to side-step a flying frying
pan with ease Mr. Warrior. Plus, if
she truly loved you like she claims, she'll
let you come out and play with your friends...
This is the perfect opportunity to test her
love. Remember, "For better, for worse,
for LAN Parties". It's in the Bible
somewhere, trust me.
valid, we'll require a death certificate.
that being said and out of our system, let's hope
no one treats BTM32 with such a lack of concern.
We do NOT want to see the Reservations Page filled
in 4 hours, we want to see it filled with people who
are interesting in attending, not those who apparently
like to see their name in print on a website.
Such that it is, the date for BTM32 “BBQ Ribs'n'Wings
Boot Camp” Edition will be June 15th! We open
the backyard for our first Summer Games to all who
have a tent! The BBQ will be ablaze with massive
Bronto-Backribs and Wings as we pitch tents outside
in the backyard for a weekend of loud carnage and
competitions (…obviously, you don't have to have a
tent to come, you're welcome to crash inside, but
we think the tent idea could be fun!..) The
game of choice is open, but it's time to return to
Tournament action. Sign-Up
now (…taking heed of what's been written in the above
paragraph…) and come join us!
most of you are aware, the Abattoir is now being served
fresh, from ExaHost
Inc. here in Canada. The switch over was
spooky thanks to our old ISP who pulled our plug premature,
but so far the only casualty is the BBs. We
can now get at all the old files, but UBB has announced
it's coming out with a new version of the system in
a couple days, so we're holding off on all the work
setting a system up till the new version's posted.
Our promise of Avatars on the BBs will come true with
this new version, so please send us an image you would
like under your name when you post on the BBs.
This can be any size (…we'll crop and reduce to spec…)
and can be pretty much anything (…taste limited…),
just email us your Avatar and when the system goes
back online, we'll take care of you.

we're all about, sit back with a cup of joe or a brew and cruise
