The most interesting part was installing Diablo II on two OS X machines and networking them with three other Windoze portables without having to run Parallels or BootCamp. I’ve talked about CrossOver for Mac OS X before and this is what we used to do a native install of Diablo. Original Blizzard installers are usually compatible with both Mac and PC but it was way too geeky to resist doing a native Windows run of Diablo on OS X. 🙂
So yeah, if you’re wondering how far into the game we got … age (and carpal tunnel) dictated the best of us and we got as far as Act I, defeating Andariel.
Please don’t judge. We’re just regular geeks. 😉

Hahaha! This is funny! Nice one! I hope I’m as “geek” as you in terms of networking! Happy New Year, Jayvee!
I can imagine the fun you guys had that day. Woot! Happy New Year. 😀
Thanks for the mention of CrossOver–we appreciate it!
Methinks you spent more time setting up the network. o.0
