Don't worry about polite.  Bring all three systems if you want.
However: We don't charge,  but we do ask for a donation.  If you're
going to be using our services for three systems, please consider
donating comensurately.

And no, there's no TV in the room.

That sounds good.  We supply all the networking and power  You might
want to bring a blank DVD or two in case we need to make a different
distro for you, and bring a regular XBox game for testing out the XBox.

Oh, and for any other first-timers out there, we often place an order
for a mess o pizzas and sodas and split the cost.
