    Please do.

    (And before everyone brings up the topic of power on the tables, it was something we worked on getting fixed all weekend but there just wasn't enough to be had at the hotel. We will have more power next year.)

    I certainly have some suggestions and think there is much room for improvement. I know this forum is closing soon so I will save my ideas and repost them there. Just wondering if anyone can second the opinion.
    Only the "Planning forum for Defcon 18" will close soon. The forums for all of these Defcon 18 contests/events will probably remain open through to November or December. They may even be open for a few weeks while the Defcon 19 forums for contests and events are opened later this year.

    As for things that suck at Defcon -- these become opportunities to volunteer, help out and offer your skills to make it better. That is pretty much how everything seems to work at Defcon... find something that you think could be made better, offer to help, or help and then contribute what you think is missing. It is what we make it. Post constructive criticism for the organizers of the HHV to answer, or consider.

    Good luck!
