  • General thankyous to the whole DefCon community

    This won't be directed at anyone in particular, but I felt obliged to say a big THANKYOU to everyone who is a part of this incredible community. Ever since I discovered DefCon, around 2 months ago, my general knowledge of systems security, of the definition of hacking, of linux, of so many different things related to this area of computing has been broadened beyond my imagination.
    I type to you now using Mozilla Firebox, with forum.defcon.org as my homepage, casually flipping through my fresh copy of "Hacking Exposed" (I bought it on eBay, and it arrived today :))
    Not only these forums, but the collection of media on the Defcon.org homepage is also very useful and incredibly informative.
    The information and help (and laughs at the fucktard hall) I've had in these forums is priceless, and irreplaceable.
    I'm sure you all don't need reminding how great you are, I just wanted to say I appreciate all the work that has gone into everything here.
    I've only read a few pages into my new books, "Hacking Exposed - 2nd Ed." and "Firewalls - A Complete Guide (Goncalves)" but I'll post back to tell you what I thought of them.
    Heres hoping I can continue to be a part of DC :D

    Let's all be bitter and call this guy an asshat. It's the DCF way. Or maybe just the phobal way.

      Ok, I'll admit that was a bit pansy of me, and I probably should have worded it better. You know what I meant, it was just a sort of respect to the founders and current dedicated members - like DarkTangent, HW, Skroo, Chris, noid, people like that who have helped me see the light. <cue hallelujah chorus>

          I do have to admit, it is much better than hearing the usual "you guys all suck.. you won't help me break into my high school or girlfriends hotmail account!"..

          My theory: if you want to show thanks, give good input back. (And buy us beer).

            That was really nice of you, and I can't speak for everyone here, but I for one definitely enjoy seeing you post on the forums, for a new guy you're definitely a refreshing change. You actually RTFM and posted well on your first posting.

            Furthermore, I hope as well that you can continue to be a part of the DC community, because you definitely seem like the type of person who would be an asset to it and not a detractor.

              Ha, I'm an ass, but I didn't mean anything that I said in that last post. You're being a nice guy and in my phobal like style, I just had to flame you. It's allllllllll good mate.

                  Hm.. Look at this nice post, I really should have waited to be second in line doing something like this, maybe then I wouldn't have gotten the shaft... /me feels the love :(
                  When you draw first blood you can't stop this fight
                  For my own piece of mind - I'm going to
                  Tear your fucking eyes out
                  Rip your fucking flesh off
                  Beat you till you're just a fucking lifeless carcass
                  Fuck you and your progress
                  Watch me fucking regress
                  You were meant to take the fall - now you're nothing
                  Payback's a bitch motherfucker!

                    He just presented it in a totally different fashion.

                    It's all above presentation, and how you present yourself.
