Oni-Con 2006 final impressions

Oni-Con — the first two days



Sam Malone on KTRH radio this morning. He was talking about this new study that decaf coffee isn’t caffine free (gee,really?) and was polling his callers about their addictions — not alcohol or drugs, but anything else. One caller talked about his wife – she’s addicted to Star Trek, and watches it from DVD for 4 hours every night — to the extent that if power fails, she reverts to a portable DVD player with a backup generator! Personally, I’m not quite that bad. My wife thinks I’m addicted to the computer and Anime, but I really only have one overriding obsession: Dr. Pepper, and when I can get it, particularly Dublin Dr. Pepper, bottled in Dublin, Texas, southeast of Fort Worth. Dublin DP is made using the original formula, with Imperial Pure Cane Sugar instead of corn syrup. The real sugar makes a sweet drink, but not syrupy sweet, and I prefer to think of this drink as my personal Nectar of the gods. So you’ve now read about my addiction…what’s yours?

New site layout complete!

the SpywareInfo Forums or any of the sites listed at the Alliance of Security Analysis Professionals site. For help with Tivo2Mpg, see this thread at the DealDatabase Forums. Other than that, I’ve added NoIdea.US to FeedBurner. the syndication link can be found in the footer of this page, or by clicking on the “feedburner” icon in the right column. Welcome back, and thanks for reading!

Almost finished….

This has become my TODO list for updates….
fix image pointers and links in imported stories
apache rewrite rules for staticpages, articles.php, links.php from old layout
copy links from old site to new links database
update links script to log clickthroughs

shrink the outer columns a bit for more space in the middle.
RSS parser for layout side box (US-CERT or such)
Update the “about” box.
Finally, reconfigure apache from the test domain to ‘new’ site!
