    Hacker Jeopardy 2010

    Host: Winn Schwartau
    Judge/scorekeeper: G. Mark
    Vanna Vinyl: Happy FunBall
    Beer Betty: Li'l Jinny

    Winner of the Sixteenth Hacker Jeopardy was NiceHat (Gray), consisting of POPS, EMK, and JPTerr0r.

    Overall results for 2010:

    Friday, July 30, 2010
    Round 1:
    The Luddites(ravyn, kevin, ryan): 2,600 points [WINNER - half their points were for beers]
    Team Tardfest (The Leprechaun, George, SlickSlacker): 2,000 points
    Team Sauce (Tigereye, Abstract, appl): 0 points

    Friday, July 30, 2010
    Round 2:
    ***Vegas 2.0 (HackAJar, Packet Baron, Crispy): 2,202 points [WINNER - FOURTH time they've played, first game they've won.]
    My Little Pwnies (cargoudel, ernwa, Cuddles): 0 points [but a really cool team name. But "Cuddles" as a handle? C'mon, guys.]
    What is South America? (turbo12, excon, poke): 0 points [finished regulation with -1,200 points, but 15 beers put them into the final, where they lost it all]

    Saturday, July 31, 2010
    Round 3:
    **Feckin' Potatoes (theintern, tyrion, raul): 1,600 points [WINNER - and amazing alcohol consumption - 17 beers, got the final question RIGHT, and then right into the finals 10 minutes later. Good thing they're Irish.]
    Team Chobo (Capnnemo, Painted, 5star): -900 points [and that's AFTER tallying their beers. So much for truly random team selection producing better results -- hey, isn't that what Darwin's evolutionary theory was all about?]
    a0l users (sn00p, rogu3, d-bag): 0 points [pulled even at 800 with Feckin' Potatoes at the end, making final question sudden death.]

    Saturday, July 31, 2010
    Final round:
    *NiceHat (Grey) (POPS, EMK, JPTerr0r): 2,500 points [WINNER]
    *The Luddites(ravyn, kevin, ryan): 1 point
    ***Vegas 2.0 (HackAJar, Packet Baron, Crispy): 799 points
    **Feckin' Potatoes (theintern, tyrion, raul): 100 points

    Winner of Black HAXOR badge: NiceHat (Grey) [also last year's defending champions. NYMPHS were AWOL two years in a row.]

    Special awards:

    * Humperdink Award (most beers consumed in one round): TIED - NiceHat (Grey) and The Luddites: both drank 20 in the Final round. But, we can't have ties, so the award goes to The Luddites, who drank 13 beers Friday for a total of 33. NiceHat had a bye on Friday and was sipping Earl Grey tea.
    ** - Tycho Brahe Award (most beers consumed in one evening without a ruptured bladder): Feckin' Potatoes, who drank 27 beers on Saturday (two back-to-back rounds.)
    *** Rob Blagojevich award: Vegas 2.0, acting totally innocent while cheating bigtime for the fourth consecutive year (using 3GL cellphones to look up answers, cellphone earbuds connected to audience members doing Google searches, digging beer bottles out of the trash and putting them on the stage to try to get credit.) Still didn't win, but I bet they get their own reality show someday.

    By the way, all four of the winning teams sat right next to Winn and the podium. Maybe more than just his hard drive got pwned this con. :) (And I think it even cooler that Microsoft didn't just flag "pwned" as a spelling error. Hee hee.)

    Final Hacker Jeopardy Question:

    Category: The Fed

    A: This sub-unified command features the MD5 hash "9ec4c12949a4f31474f299058ce2b22a" in its official logo.

    Q: What is U.S. Cyber Command? [The hash is of the command's mission statement.]

      Is there cheating in Hacker Jeopardy?

      FYI - This was Vegas 2.0's 6th straight year in competition, and first year we actually made it to finals! (Thanks Vicky and Beau)

        I've been asked to inform you that it was not you, someone else has been using that handle since at least 2008. See Shmoocon V for evidence. No impersonation going on here!
