    He was about breaking out in the heebie jeebies when we went up to the NCM on friday at Shmoo since it took us so long to get up there, and about jumped out of his skin when we almost drove past a Starbucks on Conn. Ave.

    This year it won't include the full cost of DEF CON, but instead a 100$ discount. DEF CON has only ever been reimbursed that amount per attendee, and last year I ate the difference for everyone.. not making that decision twice!

    You get a voucher for $100 off of DC18 admission when you register for BH 2010 Briefings. This was the deal for BH DC 2010. You still have to get in line in the Riv with $40 cash instead of the full $140.

    Until it hits $250 I'm perfectly ok with the price. People may bitch about it, but they are still going to come...bitching is a part of hacker DNA.

    I am pumped because that extra $20 will probably keep shortages from happening.

    It's early, give it time.

    I'm with the OP. $5 extra a day is still the best bargain around.

    No doubt there will be the usual bitching that occurs anytime a price goes up. And no doubt that this is unavoidable.

    I am fine with this amount. And two badges would also be fine with me. Have the Goons had much trouble with fake badges in the past? I am wondering if this might open DefCon up to more badge faking? If at all?

    If you come and visit me, I'll give you a bag full of poo for half that price. ;)
