 So, at some point, the wish arose that the games might be agreed upon in advance before you got started. So you could get them and play or test them. Where do you get them from? Sure, there'​s a lot being distributed via LAN, but online was another question. We weren'​t there yet. On the contrary, the first LANs were still completely offline. At some point we bought a LAN hard disk to gather the games so that you have them at least there, instead of asking each time who has the game lying around. Well, that turned out to be more of a data grave, because the problem was still that the disk was always with someone else, so you still couldn'​t access the data on demand. So, at some point, the wish arose that the games might be agreed upon in advance before you got started.

-At the same time, the desire for a //working// [[Counter-Strike]] [[Server types#​Dedicated Server|Dedicated]]] arose. In principle, one was provided on LAN first by Rich. But after the old computer of Rich was a bit too unstable, I decided to do it myself properly. We also had DHCP since that time. So we were router independent,​ so to speak. At that time everything was running on a defective laptop, where the keyboard was broken but the rest was fine. From then on it was only a stone'​s throw to make the games accessible, but only by privately known people who actually cam to our LANs. The naming of the **mobile Infantery** (mobile infantery) originates from this time. In the style of the troopers from [[https://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​Starship_Troopers_(film)|Starship Troopers]] concerning gaming and in combination with the mobile computer it was the //mobile// infantry.+At the same time, the desire for a //working// [[Counter-Strike]] [[Server types#​Dedicated Server|Dedicated]] arose.

 The question of how to install game XY correctly was not always so easy to answer without having done it at least once. So there was also an Apache that served the website where you could look up these things. In the meantime, some additional game servers have been added, the computer is no longer a laptop, but a small media PC and is still at my home. Meanwhile it is a dedicated computer with 50 Mbit/sec. Upload, hosting quite a few services for my personal use, but also on the internet. The question of how to install game XY correctly was not always so easy to answer without having done it at least once.
