December 2600

December 2600 this Friday.  No forgetting.  As usual we will be meeting at backspace around 6-7.  It looks like a show is going to start up around 8pm.  They will let you in if you say you are with 2600, but if the noise gets annoying, we will likely move to Old Town Pizza (around 3rd and Davis), and eventually we will be moving to the brainsilo hackerspace.

Since backspace started having more and more shows that conflict with 2600, there has been a lot of talk about moving the meeting.  Moving to the hackerspace would be a bit sketchy, and discourage new people from showing up since it is in a dark back alley.  What do people think of moving the meeting to Old Town Pizza permanently?  They don't have shows which is good, but their wireless sucks, and they get mad if people don't order food.

If there is enough support for the move, one of us can contact 2600 and get it changed officially in the magazine.

Comments, criticisms, suggestions?

F1337 Week

In honor of fleet week, there will be firefox swag.  Come claim your bracelets, stickers, and temporary tatoos.  I grabbed a couple handfuls from the mozilla table on the way out of OSBridge, which was more fun than I expected, even though I only caught the last few hours.

The party starts at six, and there will likely be the usual migration to the brainsilo hackerspace  around 9 as the music at backspace starts ramping up.

EDIT: 2600 has moved next door to backspace, we are now at Theo's.

April 2nd 2600 (12% less asbestos!)

PDX 2600 Club Meeting tonight at 7pm.

Our musical accompaniment for the evening will be "the winebirds" and "secrets in salt".  This promises to be a magical evening, which will very likely end up with us heading over to the brainsilo, Portland's premier hackerspace, this month featuring "paint".

Sky Hacking and February

Lock picking, abusing lawful intercept, and satellite hacking. Some of us made it to the east coast for blackhat and shmoo, for the rest of us, we have 2600 :-D Make sure to read up. Fun stuff all around.

Portland's hackerspace is now named bRainSilo (brainsilo.org). If there's interest we can go check it out when the music starts up at backspace.

some fun blackhat fallout:

so if anyone else wants to start getting into some satellite hacking, let me know.

Edit: by the way, if someone at the door gives you any trouble, say that you ae with 2600 and they should let you in.
