                      The fog has cleared enough for me to finally piece together enough of what happened in order to thank and berate everyone who deserves it. As with Chris, I have a few apologies to take care of as well.

                      First the apologies:

                      Sorry to Panthera for probobly being the one to stomp his foot in the polka line at the German Beer house.

                      Sorry to Che for not being able to get him some of the microbrew I brought down

                      Sorry to the German Beer House, those stiens were too cool

                      Sorry to Chris for not having a better showing in the first 2 WD mini contests

                      Now for the thank you's

                      Thanks to Panthera for joining me on this hellishly long road trip and putting up with my l33t navigation skillz (I get us lost more than once). Also for his sense of timing.

                      Thanks to Deviant for orginizing the room and keeping the beer/liquor supply neatly orginized into conveniently carried coolers. Also for being a very cool guy and stepping in for Panthera in the Wardriving contests.

                      Thanks to Chris, Alex Rogan, Medic, Converge, The running (wo)man and everyone in the WD minigames. They were a helluva lotta fun, even if I did make an ass of myself on the tag me game.

                      Thanks to Chris for being such a cool guy offline as online and for not beating me to hard onstage for my piss poor performance at the tag me game.

                      Thanks to the Staff at the Start Trek Experience for f'ing up the ride and giving us the funniest time ever. I nearly died from laughing.

                      Thanks to OP for forgiving me for missing the first bit of Octalcon

                      Thanks to OP and Kryonik for inviting me

                      Thanks to Dataworm for proving that not all french Canadians are assholes

                      Thanks to Cygnus for once again being a really great guy to be around and for helping drown my sorrows in NYC

                      Thanks to Che for constantly trying to get me up and dancing at Octalcon and the German Beer House, also for helping drown my sorrows in NYC

                      Thanks to Highwizard for not aiming higher when he pee'd on my leg.

                      Thanks to Blossom for the Dance

                      Thanks to Kyle. Has anyone seen him?

                      Thanks to Kelvin, Converge, Highwiz, Lil_freak, Siviak, Sphakle, and everyone else who had a hand in the Toxic BBQ. That had to be the best time I've ever had at a BBQ.

                      Thanks to my Mom for helping me make such a huge batch of th Cherry Cola BBQ sauce that you all enjoyed.

                      If this was the academy awards they would have thrown me off by now....

                      Thanks to the DC719 crew for guarding my ass through Utah and showing us a gret time in CO. Sorry my bad luck rubbed off on you.

                      Thanks to Novilio (Jeff Duntemann) for putting us up in CO springs and spending alot of time with us when he should have been writing.

                      Thanks to HighWiz and Stitch for the QC and for just being you. Also thanks for naming kyle and making sure we are all going to hell.

                      Thanks to GM1 for making doubly sure we are going to hell.

                      Thanks to DT and BlackBeetle for another wonderful con.

                      Thanks to Nulltone for the forum meet and the Forums.

                      Thanks to the Security guards at Blackhat. I would'nt have been able to attend Chris's talk if you had'nt been asleep at the switch.

                      Thanks to the Amerisuites for not freaking out when a guy wearing a PVC backpack mounted laptop and a big pointy antenna comes walking through your lobby.

                      Thanks to Thorn for proving that he is as cool offline as online

                      Thanks and Congrats to Converge and Mfreeck. Wish I could have been there.

                      Thanks to Mfreeck for trusting me enough to check out her wearable.

                      Thanks to Winn. I'm glad you remember the insanity from last year. I'm coming skiing wheather you want me to or not.

                      Thanks to Ashley, for bravely coming out the the toxic BBQ and for the amusing conversation

                      Thanks to Corona, Guinness, Absolute Vodka, Redbull, Boo Koo, and Rock Star. I could'nt have done it without you.

                        So here is my post to say thanks and put the word out about other things.

                        First off, thanks to all the staff at defcon. Although I didn't see a lot of the staff since I was drunk in a room much, I still offer a grand thank you.

                        The dunk tank was a great idea and It was an honor to be asked to participate. Although I am happy it was in the shade, better traffic could have happened by pool 1. I am not complaining and I am glad the EFF raised over $3k.

                        Chris and Grifter worked very hard and I did enjoy the vendor room. Especially when vendors didn't want to stay open til 8pm and you guys listened.

                        Thank you EVERYBODY who helps support the Defcon Cannonball Run and I promise, it will only get better and better. I will put more up soon but the stills from some of the video are up at

                        I would like to say that I am glad that a lot of people stopped by the moloch party but it would have been nicer if people donated booze or money. I normally wouldn't complain but after the new lights, fog machine, and the room itself. It's hard to not consider money when you throw an event without a guestlist.

                        The rumors are true too. I did have someone holding my vendor money and they lost over $1100 while drinking. This really put a dent in my morale. I like contributing to defcon as much as possible and I continue to do so, this just sucked after all the effort that I was to lose what would have paid for the room the party was thrown in. I do want to thank the people who paid for the t-shirts when I needed the cash, people who donated money (You people know who you are).

                        If you liked any of the shirts I had on display, go to and click on the store and buy one for a gift.

                        I had a blast and didn't see any issues. Just kids, don't OD or drink yourself blind, that just fucks shit up too. Pool party were canceled on Sunday night because of stuff like that.

                          Big thanks to:

                          First off to the staff of Defcon for a another great Defcon!

                          Octalpuss and Kryonik for the ride from the airport, ride to the commissary and all around coolness in hanging out. You guys are the best!

                          Highwiz and Stitch for helping me get to my room after McGruffD's kamikazees destroyed me.

                          Octalpuss and Kryonik for the invite to your renewal ceremony. It was a blast and I was thrilled to attend.

                          The bellydancer at the Marrakesh for entertaining us so well (she rocked).

                          Converge for the excellent administration of the Toxic BBQ. Definately worth a repeat next year!

                          Noid: Thanks for the opportunity to Goon this year! I had the most fun ever and look forward to helping out for the years to come.

                          and finally a Big Thanks to [you know who you are] for helping get Poolcon disassembled and me back to the room after the AP shut down the pools so early Sunday night.

                            I'm sorry to anyone I attempted to have a coherent conversation with on Sunday. I was sober, but I just hadn't slept in 4 days.

                            Thank you to all of the DC staff for making this happen year after year, I can't imagine missing it.

                            Thank you to Riverside for setting up the room and hauling all that gear in.

                            Sorry to the people that suffered from the difficult to read Wall of sheep after our main projector flaked.

                            Thank you to the sheep for being fleeced and helping to provide valuable lessons. There is a reason we don't post your full password, we only want to humiliate you.

                            Thank you to bobcat for reminding me that GazeeboCon makes even a Monday night red eye flight worthwhile.

                            Thank you to Sue at Ninjagear for all of the backrubs, I still owe you more beer.

                            Thank you to the excellent NZ'er currently from London for sharing that fine scotch with the Gazeebo.

                            Thank you to the many people I forgot.
                            If you can remember DefCon, you weren't really there...

                              Thank You to

                              All the Goons for keeping order

                              The vendor that sold the pizza.... breakfast, lunch and dinner!! Big thank you for selling it for $2 bucks a piece and not raping us on the price.

                              The AP security guards (white shirts) who asked if I was ok after I passed out, outside of the IVU's party.

                              Riverside for showing me how the Wall of Sheep works

                              Judas for letting me room with him... psycho PT at 5:30AM dude

                              Sorry to

                              Alexis Park for throwing up in their bushes

                              Screw You to

                              The bartender who suggested a "light and refreshing" drink... DAMN YOU!!! :) What the hell was in that??

                              The four teenage idiots who were throwing their sandals at peoples feet, trying to make them trip. Lucky I didn't trip with $5000 worth of laptops, camera and video equipment.
