      Wrap up

      I think this should wrap up the questions, unless someone notices anything I blatantly missed.

      ------------------------

      Q) What kind of stuff should I bring to defcon (1)? What stuff should I leave at home (2)(3)?

      A) 1) Kinds of stuff to bring, may include: Shorts, T-Shirts, Underwear, Socks (if you're not a hippy), Shoes/Sandals, Cash (atleast 200USD),SunBlock (if you don't get out much), Camera, Radio (FRS), Sunglasses, Bathroom Kit/Tolietries (Toothbrush, meds, Shaving Kit, ect.), Stuff to trade (Swag), Deoderent (This could be included in the Bathroom kit, but lets make a SPECIAL note of bringing it), First Aid Kit (Bandaids, Rubbing Alcohol, ect.), Avatar Badge.

      2) If this is your first time at Defcon, chances are you will bring a lot of shit that you don't need. After your first year you can decide what you actually used and what you want to leave at home. However, don't bring anything too expensive. It may A) Get lost(see: stolen) or B) Get thrown into the pool with you attached.

      3) Stuff not to bring: Drugs, illegal weapons.

      Q) More Specifically should I bring my laptop to Defcon?
      A) I'll give you three peoples quotes and let you decide:

      "I dunno. I bring my laptop every year, and every year I end up leaving it off for most of Defcon. I dont think I will even bother with it this year." - Noid

      "It all really depends on what you plan on doing at defcon.... if you foresee long hours of diddling around, surfing on the net during slow periods, checking your email (baaahh), wardriving, checking out the uberl33t defcon cd, wanking to pr0n in your room (beats the non-pr0n they won't be serving at the AP)...
      Though if you just plan on carrying around a heavy piece of junk just to fit in leave it at home, or in your room... no need to dress to impress... it is too damned hot to walk around with something weighing you down.... whatever you do, don't leave it in the corner recharging and expect it to be there when you get back (sigh yes there are still "opportunists" that lurk around)..." - Blackwave

      "DEFINITELY!! Bring it!! You can take notes, participate in the note exchange, get on either the wired or wireless LAN, exchange files, try out new OS's, work on your existing system... or just geek out with like minded individuals." - Octalpussy

      Q) What are some of the Hotels near the Alexis Park?
      A) 1) http://www.sttropezlasvegas.com/
      2) http://www.aladdincasino.com/
      3) http://www.tropicanalv.com/
      4) http://las-vegas-hotels.travelape.co...las-vegas.html
      5) http://las-vegas-hotels.travelape.co...las-vegas.html
      6) http://www.lasvegas.com/hotel/howard...tel_browse.htm
      7) http://www.amerisuites.com/hotels/ajlg.shtml
      8) http://www.lasvegasairport.embsuites.com/
      9) http://www.hardrock.com/casinos/vegas/
      If you are really tight on cash, try a youth hostel:
      1) http://www.hostelsweb.com/hostelsweb...stelNumber=825
      2) http://www.hostelsweb.com/hostelsweb...telNumber=5997


      Q) Whats this "Forums Meet" people keep talking about?
      A) The "Forums Meet" is where people who participate (or lurk) in the Defcon Forums meet up at the event. It gives everyone the opportunity to put faces to names, and hangout with people in real life that you hangout with online, but may have never met.

      Q) I've heard conflicting stories about Pool-Con; what exactly is it?
      A) PoolCon is an after party of Defcon. It takes place on sunday and runs all night. People who are leaving Defcon on sunday usually leave any extra alcohol by Pool 3 before they are on their way and that is what fuels the event. In years past it was usually a chill event, but after some assholes came to PoolCon at DefconXI it didn't turn out to be. If you're planning to go to Poolcon, keep this in mind: It's a time to relax and chill after the Con is over, if you gunna be an asshole, just go home instead.


      Special thanks for people involved in the FAQ go out to: Blackwave, Grifter, Astcell, Noid, Chris, Octalpussy, Neural, Nulltone, Converge, Skroo, Siviak, Blackbettle and numerous others in the Defcon Community that gave me questions/answers/quotes.

      This Unoffical FAQ/bible is in no-way affiliated with Defcon. It's unoffical.

I would post to neurals FAQ list, however no matter how hard I try the site has some registration/login issues.
            Bah. It works fine. When you click the Add a new Answer link at the bottom it gives you a few options..you can create a new login (account), change your password, sign in your existing account (authenticated) or post an answer and not have to register (still requires you put in an email address but doesn't verify it)

            When you make a new account you just enter an e-mail address and the password you want to use, it emails you a link you must visit to authenticate your email address and then you can add questions and answers for like an hour. Your session times out after an hour and you just need to re-login again for another hour. Easy peasy one two threesy.

              No Neural, It doesn't, No matter how many times I activated my account and type in my email address and password, your site would not allow me to login. At some point it just becomes too much of a problem, so I stopped.
