      Making Friends- my experience

      This'll be my third defcon. The first one I did the 'bring-laptop, attend sessions, wander aimlessly' thing, and it really didn't work out very well.

      Last time I was more outgoing, and met a lot more friends. It was much-fun. I suggest you just be friendly, say 'Hi', and don't brag.

      Of course, I gained momentarily popularity with the chugging-yogurt-out-of-a-female-condom thing. Various people kept giving me odd looks. Ugh. That still makes my stomach turn. I don't suggest that. *shudder*

      Alcohol makes the world go 'round, too. Remember that :)

        No, people will not buy you beer, if you want people to hangout with you will need to buy them beer. You're new, no-one knows you, so why would we buy you beer?


        heh, oh... and my wife is a model... and she will be with me.... maybe that will attract a few friends, eh? ;) hahaha
        I'm gay... So that's a big NO.

            I don't think so, at least not in a camelback.

                    This'll be my first year of actually attending DC... been dreaming about it for years.

                    Anyway, I've got a pair of long-range 2.4Ghz directional antennas that I'm not using, but would be perfect for jumping on a wireless network from about 15 miles away! (That range could even be extended if the two antennas were used in tandem). They're helical design, (same as the Pringles can model) but they're about 5 times larger and are sealed in weatherproof cases that can be mounted to a mast, roof of a car, etc.

                    Would it be appropriate to bring something like this to DC to sell/swap/trade? Or would that attract too much attention?

                    I'm mainly coming to DC to hang out with you clowns, drink, be merry and have a good time, but if I can unload these ants that'd be nice too. Thoughts?
                    You heard me.

                      That's exactly the sort of stuff you will see at Defcon. To fit in better, you may want to build a helmet mount for them.

                        Dually noted. Hell, I didn't even think to mention the attached beer holder!

I told him I'll be his wingman and be the obnoxious drunk guy and hit on her and he could be the "Sorry about my friend" type. So I wander over with a very large Gin and Juice, sit on the edge of the hot tub and said "Hi. I'm neural.
                          That is not over the top outging, that's being a druken asshole henchman to an insecure, superficial wank whom is too much of a pussy to talk to a girl himself. I thought smacking a girl with my surfboard while surfing in Hawaii (it wasn't intentional! I swear!) was a brutal way to meet someone.
