II. The Idea
The concept of the l.o.u.n.g.e. was first proposed in Spring 2006 during an intense session of the ritual known as "Procrastinate In The Dining Hall Instead Of Doing Homework", after it was announced that a room continually under blacklight would be "groovy". Plans were developed in quick succession. It was decided that multiple stacks of computers and electronics equipment were necessary, so that the room emitted the proper cyberpunk  aura. One source of inspiration for the design of the l.o.u.n.g.e. was a project at MIT, the MIDAS (Multifunction In-Dorm Automation System) . At this point in the design stage, a rudimentary stack of computers already existed (see Figure 2), though the l.o.u.n.g.e. was still only an idea. It was planned that this concept would be expanded upon heavily. Other proposed concepts included full-time darkness (to preserve the effect of the blacklight), a centralized music server with an inordinate number of speakers, and a centralized means to watch movies and other media.
III. The Old
In Fall 2006, the l.o.u.n.g.e. was finally implemented in its first form . The blacklight was installed; windows were rendered ineffective with aluminum foil and electrical tape; approximately fifteen computers were organized into two main stacks. A large couch was obtained; it had been named "The Triple-Breasted Couch from Eroticon VI" by its previous owners, who were old Georgia Tech Band alumni. The couch exhibited several suspicious glowing stains when brought under blacklight; the pillows were therefore turned over. Also obtained was a 27" television requiring continual percussive maintenance, and three refrigerators of varying size. One of these refrigerators was intended to be a computer cluster of four nodes. Shelves were constructed out of L-brackets and pegboard to hold the excessive electronics and goods. These shelves included a feature whereby items would be dropped onto the floor at random intervals. Figure 3 shows the setup of the early l.o.u.n.g.e.
