As about half of us strolled slowly up towards the Darwin, we randomly insulted the evangelical preachers along the way. (Jesus loves bambam, he did love me but I took the piss too much.)
Upon arrival at the Darwin we found Savvy and Zipser kindly occupying our corner of the pub, allowing use full use of the comfy sofas and tables.
The first order of the night was deciding which person out of myself, Bambam and Agent should receive Savvys old palm, the suggestions ranged from Bambam saying he looked the most pathetic, to me offering to buy Savvys drinks for the night, we final settled on a random system that found Agent to be the winner.
Most of the night passed in a sort of haze for me different conversations with many different people independent of the group. But nonetheless some bits stick in my mind. The copy proof CD issue again reared its ugly head with newer more creative methods from Micro$oft both to stop me from playing my CD on a PC and fucking over the Linux user. We decided protest and breaking the system to show how fucking stupid it is was the best way to go.
BRUM2600 IS A FORUM FOR FREE INFORMATION EXCHANGE AT NO STAGE DOES ANY ILLEGAL ACTIVITY TAKE PLACE
Various sploits and server side problems (bambam!!) where discussed and pondered over, especially the recent open SSH problems.
Thats about all I can remember, the gaps are hopefully caused by sleep deprivation, not at all to do with alcohol as most of use remained relatively sober throughout.
Cheers to Agent for enlightening me to even more ways of fucking up an Athalon, or clocking it.
Thanks to all, see you all soon.
PS: There is a code hidden in the message, the first email solution I receive will be rewarded with drinks of their choice at the next meet.
PPS: Not too many drinks, its quite easy, they will get harder.
report 2 by Bambam
Met as usual, then moved off to our corner of the Darwin Pub.
Not much of a technical meeting - but it was nice to see the crew. With only locals there (this was a local meet, for local people) it was only a matter of time before the conversation fell into drunken debauchery and semi-nude photos, well, risque photos anyway.
The only technical conversations revolved around radio : and most of the non-radio buffs fell aslee.... ermm.. silent in awe.
Much conversation was had about social engineering, and gaining dialup access to router's serial ports.
With little technical conversation, the quotes list was a little more debaucherous than normal...
Lsl: He's a good programmer, if you're into VB
Re-LoaD: There's a very fine line between social engineering and fraud.
": He's a synner, i'm an acker.
": [In response to Zipser's claim that photons have mass] Is that why on a really sunny day you feel heavy?
": My Laptop is going in for repair, but, you know, I don't wanna do a Gary Glitter, I've deleted everything off it.
": He's fixing seven of nine.
DeanX: I know what 2 bits I'd be going for first
Bambam: [to Zipser, mid radio antenna explaination] Fuckin' Geek.
Bambam: Has anyone said anything tonight that isn't illegal?
