    Too Much Arguing

    Damn people. I knew when the dates for DC10 were about a two months ago. The easiest way to find out when DC is, is to call the Alexis Park and ask. They know far in advance. Keep that in mind next year. :)

    As long as it is not too close to Aug 12th, my Birthday.

    Doesn't really matter, I never have parties for it anyways...

    Aug dates

    Based on the fact that the last few BH breifings have offered a pass to both BH and DC, and further that the ability to schedule speakers for bot (as some speak at both) is logisticaly enhanced by staging them back to back, I'd go for Aug 2-4.

    This is true, but consider why BH and DC have been scheduled the way they have (I'm tired, deal).

    You need to have them all in one lump number of dates, or else you're not going to get everyone to come to both. Since the one they're trying to sell is BlackHat (Check the price, I doubt they'd prefer you to take a pass on that one, then show for DefCon), then that would mean that you'd end up with all the admins, feds, speakers -- generally everyone you want to come -- only being able to make it to BH.

    DefCon would only be available to people without jobs; the skillless youngins that a lot of people complain about.

    So, unless DT decided to throw DefCon to the wolves, BH and DC will be scheduled together.

    DC could happen *before* blackhat, but since they have been offering free admission to DC if you attend BH, they'd want to make sure you paid for BH before they let you in to DC, so it makes sense to hold BH first (That or start allowing people to pay for BlackHat at the DefCon registration line).

    Well, he said "Its not in the middle of the month"

    Either he REALLY thought about what he was saying, and said "not in the middle" to only confirm that is it not in a small portion of the month.

    Or, it is in some other time of the month. Because, he could have said "Its not in July"

    Something to think about...

    Likely DCX date

    My so called 'dark ninja' skills aka lazy irc logging reports the DC10 date as July 12-14...That comes from a credible insiders tip. Also, heres a good point: from what Ive heard from several core defcon people, HOPE has become a bother with their protesters and crap. H2K2 will take place July 12, 13, and 14 2002 in New York so it stands to reason that by having the dates coinciding, that their 'bad element' will likely stay away from us. I hold no ill will toward the hope people, just the asses who want to disrupt our con. Theres my 2 and a half cents. :)

    However, given the fact that recent Defcons have been held in conjunction with the BHB series, your conclusion is somewhat logical.
