GBC Equipment Details

George Brown will allow jammers to use their machines (if desired). We will be contacting everyone prior to the jam to get computer and other information from you.

Their computers are serious.

4 Important Things

  1. You need to bring a USB key and save all your work on it.When computers restart, they automatically revert to their original state. All files are deleted.

  2. While they are Mac Pro’s, you’ll be using Windows.

  3. While you can install software (i.e. Unity), it will be removed if you restart.

  4. You’re welcome to use just the GB monitor, but it requires a MAC proprietary “Mini Display Port” connection. There is NO DVI or VGA connector (you’ll need an adapter which WE DO NOT PROVIDE).
