  • RSS Feeds by Collection in Jekyll

    Yesterday I ran into an interesting limitation of the jekyll-feed gem while working on my StarbornHQ collaboration.

  • DefCon 25 - Day One

    So today was the 101 day of DefCon 25 in Las Vegas and as a recent migrant to the City of Sin I finally had the chance to make an appearance. My friend and I got there around 0730 and already the lines were long, but surprisingly the Goons kept everything moving at a fairly swift pace. I hadn’t been following closely enough to know that the badge this year would not be an electronic puzzle as it had last year so that was a bit of a bummer for someone who was looking forward to tinkering with it. I did discover, entirely by accident, that there are several other badges available but at a reported $100 a pop it may be too rich for my blood, at least this year.
