    Well, looks like the deal won't go through according to the rumor mill.

      Cool, at least we have a home for one more year.

        Because the military is the military, I'll never say never, but even the sale of a hotel won't keep my away from Defcon this year.

        Even if, as expected, it gets cancelled.

          What do you mean "if" did you not get the word?

              I can't afford refundable tickets so I'll wait a little longer to make sure the rumor about the cancellation is just that - a rumor!

                them to a local or internet database.
                I've no idea if it would foil facial recognition software, but if I was banned I might invest several bucks in a pair of these: http://www.sciplus.com/singleItem.cf...LogFrom=Search (gotta accept a cookie) and maybe strategically add/remove a beard... Maybe a Long John Silver-type eye patch.

                Oh, and don't act like a raving dick and thereby draw attention to yourself ;-)

                  Well I don't know about those glasses I mean I already look like the stereotypical geek. I've got the whole check list from the glasses to the black wardrobe. Anyway back on topic toss a full body fat suit in there and a bald mans wig if your chicken and don't want to shave.
                  Edit: cool site I've never seen it before. Know where I'm doing my x-mas/birthday shopping, hello lab supplies.

                  There is nothing more dangerous than people with a little knowledge. Which means society is mostly safe.

                    The sale of the hotel would be an interesting monkey wrench. I am interested to see how everything ends up panning out.

                      I guess getting banned won't count for much any more.

                        For those interested in casino security, i'm currently doing some research on it as part of a larger project (legitimate, i promise!) and am thinking giving a presentation on it - just not while staying at a casino.

                        The facial recognition and privacy work is being done by James Alexander -also at UPenn -it's called the Masks project
