  • Registration open - save your donation time slot!!

    The talks have been posted, the events have been announced. By now, everyone should have some idea of where they will be during the convention. So now is the time to save your personal blood donation appointment!

    Based on last year's participation and the cool swag being given away this year, chances are all the donation appointments will be taken up quickly, so if you have a particular time you want to donate, please swing by to the following web site ASAP and pick your donation time. Here's how to do it:

    Step 1: Go to the following web site - https://www.bloodhero.com/index.cfm?group=op
    Step 2: Enter "Defcon" in the box marked "Code"
    Step 3: Pick your preferred day for donation
    Step 4: Pick your time
    Step 5: Be at the donation center 10 minutes before your chosen time

    We are going all out this year, and have a ton of time slots - let's fill every one of them up!! See you at the con!!

        The correct answer is: "Stop drinking by 6am."

              Got a slot early Friday. Hopefully I'll be half asleep and not notice the needle as needles creep me out.

              I'm pretty sure I can manage 3-4 hours of sobriety for a good cause. Thanks for clarifying that, and thanks for offering online reregistration this year. I tried to donate last year, but slots filled up before I got a chance.

                If we fill this entire schedule up (and do so well before the convention), we can have a discussion with the organization and expand it into Thursday for next year... it's the same thing as always - people who don't know about defcon always underestimate defcon. Let's make them wish they extended Thursday through Sunday by filling up all the pre-registration slots!!

                :)

                  Yeah, the online scheduling is definitely nice. They will still accept walk-ins during times that don't get filled, but I would rather have people standing outside as alternates hoping that someone doesn't show up for their appointment, than to rely on walk-ins to keep the donation chairs full... and at the rate people are signing up, I believe we'll be looking at a serious number of gallons of blood leaving the building during the drive. ;-)

                            Saturday now has over half of the donation times reserved!! Excellent start!

                            However, we only have 4 people signed up for Saturday out of 58 spots. Let's make sure we fill both days so they know how serious and charitable hackers are.
