  • Information about the BCCC at DEF CON 24

    I am not affiliated with this event and nothing I write is authoritative for it.

    In this year, much like every year, the beverage is warm. Maybe we have a problem, maybe it's how we were raised. I blame our parents. Regardless of our paternal compunctions the beverage needs to be cooler then cool. Alright? Lets break out those contraptions, dust off our science hats, and chill some fluids! And maybe, if we really try this time instead of goofing off and just finish our homework, we can wash away a few of our regrets. This year will see a return of the build-a-contraption two tiered format. Contestants can choose to bring a contraption and participate in the unlimited class or build one at the convention and compete in the hacked class. With *wonderful* prizes to the winners and the adulation of our hydrated fans, who wouldn't want to compete? Guaranteed to be a blast or your regrets back! For full rules, location, and unlimited class sign-up please find us on the DEFCON forums.
    I think this was originally started by Deviant Ollam and he has had his own web page with details, but I amnot sure if he is running it again this year. If he is, an extra site URL and twitter feed (his) would likely be added here and to the forum description.

      Hey guys and gals it's @Hearken. I will be running the BCCC again this year. I hope everyone who attended last year had a great time and will be returning.

      Since we moved to a new format last year we are not going to be changing the primary rules. However, we will pick a new target temperature and to strongly encourage people to bring some fun stuff I think we may go with EXTRA COLD. I will need to consult the beverage gods before we finalize that.

      The contest as always will be on Friday. The build period starts at 11 and the chilling will occur between 12:30 and 1:30. Some prizes will be awarded at the contest but the grand prizes will happen at the contest prize ceremony (NOT THE BIG ONE).

      Look for the rules to be posted to this section of the forums soon! There is a sign-up post and we strongly encourage people to sign up but walkups are welcome.

        "I'll admit I had an OiNK account and frequented it quite often… What made OiNK a great place was that it was like the world's greatest record store… iTunes kind of feels like Sam Goody to me. I don't feel cool when I go there. I'm tired of seeing John Mayer's face pop up. I feel like I'm being hustled when I visit there, and I don't think their product is that great. DRM, low bit rate, etc... OiNK it existed because it filled a void of what people want."
