DEFCON Contest

While we aren’t having a party this year, we are running a mini contest and offering up some tokens of appreciation for those who complete it. A badge of honor if you will…


Let’s be clear. The end objective of this game is to speak a phrase to Darren or Larry so that it can be over heard by others (the louder the better!) while showing us the “official” picture of the phrase. We don’t care how you show us the picture, be it print, or electronic but we will not do any computing for you, or place any storage devices in our computers.
Badges are limited so solve it early! While they get you nothing but bragging rights, shouldn’t you be packing for DEFCON?
Oh, and everything you need to get started is in this blog post.
Best of luck.
