Hackaday Monday Sipping

monday sipping

it’s monday again. another new week! but wow, we have some serious recapping to do.

defcon 13 has come and gone and boy has it been a blast. we saw a lot of great and horrible talks, met tons of cool people, gave out tons of stickers and t-shirts and pins, and also got hacked! w00t!

we still have a few shirts (and tons of stickers) left though. we’ll let you know how you can get your hands on the in the next few days!

Defcon has really been great despite being a bit dissapointing in a lot of ways. It made me get back into my hacking roots that are so much fun to do. For instance, while we were hanging with the dudes over at rackspace, I created this nice little php page making it very easy to test Movable Type installations for the default username and password. I like it, it’s very fun. Just copy and paste the http://www.cfrirgrg.com/mt.cgi address in the box. No HTTP:// is required (don’t do it) so it’s easy to paste from the google results. i plan on improving it and eventually automating it.

what the hack was also over the weekend too. it took place all outdoors and was probably better than defcon. if you went, we wanna know.

then there’s the whole up-in-arms-over-this cisco exploit that came out that could “bring the internet to it’s knees”…ouch. the guy who found it quit his job at his security firm so he could bring attention to it and now he’s screwed basically.

props to this guy (rich) for shoving us to in-n-out burger too. he also exposed us to “the weight lifter” if i recall right. we don’t thank you for that. we also want to thank corey, dirk, jason s., ryan, justin (blogcadre raps), justin (lettingusstayathisplace), torrone, mike (same), jason c. of course, and all of you guys who came up and found us and said hi!

Coke Can Tuxedo

Coke Can Tux

this is one of the most insane things i’ve seen in a long time. this guy obviously had a very formal event (read: prom) to go to at one point. chances are he was desperate for attention which resulted in his coke can tux. that’s right. he ran a can drive with his readers and friends to get the cans to make this monstrosity. he then went and mashed, molded, melted, and sewed a series of coke cans together to create this coke can vest for his event. great work and extra points for being original and a loser.

thanks [com]
