  • "Bill says Buy it" T shirt from Defcon 2001

    I have been looking for this shirt for a long time now. It got stolen, along with my pants and stuff when I was working at Taco Bell like 17 years ago. It was a black shirt that has Bill Gates on it and it says "Bill says buy it" on the shirt. Anyone have one that is 3Xx or 4x? Or know where I can find old DefCon merch?

    According to google, and site linked, was for sale at the 2000 Atlanta Linux Showcase From site "Linux Mall . com" (remove spaces and double quotes):

    Story mentions someone wearing this shirt at DEF CON 9:

    Then a claim in content from a DEF CON 6 article, archived on the DEF CON Media Server as: "DEF CON 6 T.J. Barrett - A return to Las Vegas"

    Outside in the corridor someone shows up with tee shirts I just have to have. He is still taking them out of the bag as I fork over $20 and snag one-a black shirt with the "Intel Inside" logo superimposed over an inverted pentagram and the legend "Intel i80666 Pentagram Processor-Runs Hotter than Hell". On the reverse is a picture of Bill Gates with Devil's horns on his head, and the legend "Bill says, 'Buy It!'"
    Appears it was on sale on ebay with description:
    * Vintage 90s Bill Gates Shirt Bill Says Buy it Linux Windows Intel Inside T-Shirt. $49.99.

    I don't see it in the DEF CON archives as something from a vendor, but it doesn't mean it wasn't sold at DEF CON.

    Most vendors at DEF CON were independent sellers not stores tun by DEF CON.
