ShmooCon 2007

March 28, 2007

Early last Friday morning I flew out of DFW on my way to D.C. for ShmooCon.  I arrived in D.C. at noon after the pilot of my plane aborted the first landing and had to make a second approach. I forgot just how difficult the approach is flying into Reagan National Airport. If I recall correctly planes must maintain a minimum altitude and have to make an odd approach all due to airspace of all the various monuments and government buildings in the vicinity of the airport, which results in the plane having to drop quite a bit of altitude right at the last minute and make a fairly quick turn about the same time to approach correctly. Not an easy task for a large jet I’m guessing…



VoIP Attacks!

October 2, 2006

My presentation earlier today went very well. Other than a few technical difficulties with the A/V setup regarding my laptop audio and running out of time with about 4 slides and my conclusion left and having to rush through the end, I was very happy with it.

Slides in various formats and video of my talk can be found here.

AHA! 0x0001

September 30, 2006

Last wednesday we had our second AHA! technical meeting at the Austin Public Library. For anyone that didn’t know, the various branches of the APL have meeting and conference rooms available for use by the public if you can prove a non-profit status.

So far I’m really happy with the format of the meetings being a bunch of “turbo-talks” (presentations under 15 minutes in length). Not only does it keep me from getting bored but there’s always a wide range of things that people are talking about so there’s usually something for everyone.

We’ve recently put up a wiki site to hold slide decks from some of the talks at the meetings and short descriptions of the talks. Check it out if you’re interested in finding out what we’ve been talking about or want the details for the next meeting.

ToorCon 8 Speaker Lineup Changes

September 26, 2006

Apparently, some time a couple weeks ago, the ToorCon speaker schedule was updated. I’m now no longer up against Chris Eagle, but am now up against spoonm speaking about reversing with Ruby. I don’t know if this change will help or hurt my talk’s attendance… Both of them are excellent speakers with excellent topics, and my topic really is kinda blah unless your a telephony geek. I may end up speaking to a mostly empty room…
