The l.o.u.n.g.e. (Lounge Of Undefinably Numerous Goods and Electronics) is an environment intended to compress the maximum amount of groovitude into the minimum amount of space. Because such a project cannot afford to be compromised by members of the general populace who are unable to comprehend the awesomeness of such a room, the l.o.u.n.g.e. has been hidden inside of a crappy dorm on the West Campus of Georgia Tech. An overview of the technically complicated features of the l.o.u.n.g.e. can be found at the `control' page .

IV. The New
In August 2007, Georgia Tech Housing decided to carry out their plan of forcing the l.o.u.n.g.e. to relocate approximately 500 feet, from the 4th floor in the south wing of a building to the 5th floor on the north wing of the same building. During the process, the entire contents of the room were emptied onto the street. This debacle can be seen in Figure 4.

Later in 2007, the l.o.u.n.g.e. was re-established and improved upon . Numerous further electronics and goods were obtained, including an oscilloscope, a projector and 100-inch screen, and assorted miscellaneous electronic components. These new devices furthered the entertaining capabilities of the l.o.u.n.g.e., which, at that particular point in time, was able to house up to approximately sixteen guests comfortably for a movie viewing.

V. The Even Newer
At the close of the 2007-2008 school year, the residents of the l.o.u.n.g.e. chose to re-establish the l.o.u.n.g.e in apartment-style housing. This new setup allowed a total of five rooms (as opposed to the previous two), which were used to the advantage of the groovitude of the l.o.u.n.g.e. . Among the additions were a couple new monitor and a record player. The five rooms also allowed for a dedicated study room. The new space allows up to approximately twenty guests comfortably for a movie viewing (as opposed to the old sixteen).
