  • Not going to DefCon?

    Since we were talking about this on #dc-forums tonight, I'm curious as to who won't be going to DefCon this year.

    As of right now, I know:
    HighWiz
    Stitch
    Neural
    Ndex
    Czarina
    Con
    mfreeck
    Telco
    mee
    TheCotMan (BrokenCbl)

    Anyone else that usually goes not going to make it this year?

    Everyone will certainly be missed and I'm sure many a drink will be lifted in your honor
    Never drink anything larger than your head!

      Kryonik won't be, on account of the lacking employment thing. I think I heard Pezz won't be either. Mee is, last I heard (about a day ago)... she's the one planning the girl meet. Lost isn't, new job.

      What did I do to make you think I give a shit?

          It is looking more and more like this will be the case. Assume I won't be there. If things clear up on this end, and I happen to show up, then cool-deal. However, ATM, assume I won't be there.

              Umm... Nice try spreading lies about me. I really don't find this funny...
              A) Its not true that im bi, or gay.
              B) I don't see how my sexual preference is something to joke about, I never said anything about yours.
              C) I never wrote those words. Nor do I believe in them.

              So please, im asking you nicely to change your signature.
              Ps. I won't be missing you, or stitch this year...

                Thats harsh, buddy. I mean, he did say if your bi or gay. Oh well, its funny either way.

                Are most people not going because of work conflicts, or because of not wanting to go this year for some reason?

                    Hey, I'm just reposting the conversation we had earlier. If you're now saying you're "bi curious" then that's fine.

                    B) I don't see how my sexual preference is something to joke about, I never said anything about yours.
                    I don't have a sexual preference, just an orientation. But hey, if you say you chose to be Bi, then more power to you.

                    C) I never wrote those words. Nor do I believe in them.
                    Someones in Denial!

                    So please, im asking you nicely to change your signature.

                    I would have, but then you became a turd, So I'm going to keep the completely true and accurate statements there.

                      Here is my take on this.

                      New folks go to Defcon every year but those of us who are a kindred spirit attend year after year. We may have started attending whilst in high school, hence July made the perfect time to let loose.

                      Every year we will see newbies at Defcon, slack-jawed at what some people do to themselves and others. They too will grow, and then one day, what happened to us will happen to them. They get a job right after high school or college.

                      Now it's June and they are really unsure about getting a vacation just one month into their new job, so they skip Defcon. And what was easy to skip once will be easy to skip again. You think back at your interaction with everything from feds to mammaries, and you smile. But you gotta hunker down at work. You stare into your closet longlingly at your Defcon t-shirts, smiling at some thoughts, and shuddering at others. You think how you don't wear t-shirts any more and wonder what to do with them.

                      Your old.
                      Your boring.
                      Your 30.

                        I skipped 11, but came back for 12.

                        You think how you don't wear t-shirts any more and wonder what to do with them.
                        I still wear my DefCon tee shirts at work. I've worn them so much, they are more grey than black.

                        Your old. Your boring. Your 30.
                        Yep. Yep. Nope.

                          Ndex and Czarina aren't going this year? Aw, dang! I can't imagine a con without them. It is just going to be strange.

                          By some amazing last minute miracle it looks like I am probably going.

                            God damn it. I had to go and miss last year, and this year I'm not going to get to see half the people I want to.

                            Y'all are gonna hafta make up for lost drinking time next year, or else.

                              Is some or all of this thread a "DefCon has been Canceled" type of thing? HighWiz are you not thowing TBBQ and an afterparty?

                              Is this like that "I love you but I'm not _IN LOVE_ with you" type of things (E.g. "I'm going to be in Vegas but not _AT DefCon_")
                              "Never Underestimate the Power of Stupid People in Large Groups"
