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:

I just bought myself one of these

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.
