Some of those would be really great to have attended. In particular:

Remote Pair Programming and Test-driven Development Using Open Source
Advanced File System Hiding and Detection
Hacking Malware: Offense Is the New Defense

The first of those almost seems not to belong with all the others, though... Just plain programming with no hacking slant? Amazing.

Re:Oooh (0)

Yeah, DefCon kinda follows a similar pattern of the post-bubble job market. Ratherthan L33th4x0rd00d presenting on the topic of MacOS rootkits (replete with handicapped public-speaking ability), a lot more serious well-credentialed indivduals are there speaking about more serious topics (generally guys that are a lot better at being on stage presenting advanced technical topics).

Re:Oooh (5, Interesting)

prostoalex (308614) | more than 7 years ago | (#15853217)

Advanced File System Hiding and Detection

This was mainly about Windows NTFS having certain bits reserved for almost every type of files out there. Basically, the guys from Lockheed Martin created a tool for hiding data in those places and then recovering it.

The WarRocketry was really cool, and the badge hacking contest promises to be pretty competetive. Major Malfunction (speaker for magstripe hacking), has already made his into an IR emitter. TV-Be-GOON. There is also a small bot area where they are doing computer controlled weapons targetting. I watched that for a while yesterday, the results were very mixed, but most of them had the right idea.

Feh. You want sophisticated badges, you should have been at the Atlanticon QRP sessions a few years ago.

All the food in the fridge is now baked. DoD'ing fridges, the geek way of cooking?

Re:Slashdotted fridge (0, Offtopic)

piepkraak (989721) | more than 7 years ago | (#15852758)

The Kolme is a waterway in northen France, and the area around the belgium Verune. In a long forgotten past the rivers Ijzer and the Aa flowed via uncountable sidetracks in the sea. When in the 11th century the coastarea was tranformed into land (`polderen'), the sidetracks were digged into the water-flow-controlsystem.

SpaceLifeForm (228190) | more than 7 years ago | (#15852967)

Not likely. In order to DoD a fridge, you must
not be near it during the initial attack, but
also must be ready to move in quickly to determine
if there is anything worth salvaging.

There usually isn't after a DoD attack.

Coming soon... (1)

frostoftheblack (955294) | more than 7 years ago | (#15852657)

Now all we need is an Internet startup like Last.fm. Instead of one that uploads your most recently played tracks, it uploads your most recently eaten food. You'll have to build sensors within the refrigerator that automatically grab the barcode of the product whenever it's removed from the refrigerator, and queried against a database.

Anyone got pliers?

Re:Coming soon... (1)

generic-man (33649) | more than 7 years ago | (#15852832)

The now-defunct Icepick house had a food display on its website: every time someone removed an item from the fridge or threw it away, they scanned a bar code and it went on the web. Hook up a web services interface to your neighborhood grocer's inventory system and you've got a fully integrated e-kitchen.

I ordered one with IR led's instead and place it on a hat. I have it scroll "Fuck OFF Security GUYS!" so only the people watching the security cameras can read it.

Quite fun to get accosted by someone that comes down to ask me about my profanity on my hat to get me looking at them with it in my hand going "What?? this has not worked for weeks." while showing them a blank screen, and I walk away. Security are typically way to stupid to understand Infared let alone CCD camera sensitivity to IR.

Nobody is going care about your side of the story in the first place if you complain about the treatment you get, and they won't beleive you either that there was nothing display becuase the security tape WILL show otherwise.
