First time I participated in any competitive hacking at Defcon. Up against some serious teams. A friend helped out on 2 but the rest was all me. Pretty good for a filthy casual!

The only time it snows in Santa Barbara is during Fiesta.

Which shoes should I wear today?

California is getting a new Governor next year. Here is the official primary ballot. Note the "block chain startup CEO", "Recording Artist", Virtual Reality manager", and "puppeteer / musician".

My CTF team got third place this weekend against stiff competition! Go team!

I got what I needed. I'll meet you at the car.


First flip flop day of 2018. Also, this angle makes my feet look rediculously small.

Feels good too have everything set up and ready to jam. Let's go!

I always thought to myself: "Man, I wish I could read RSS feeds in my IDE! Thanks Eclipse!" mastodon.sdf.org/media/65C0_Yc
