Phreaknic 12 is 2 days away!
I've been getting reports of people starting to make the trek to Nashville for the con. We're getting our gear staged to move it to the hotel, and we're going over the checklists. Directors are doing final communications with their people, and Dolemite is picking up the grub. This year looks like it's gonna be a blast too!
I've heard some reports of Pancakes on the ninth floor at some point, and there are a few impromptu contests that will be taking place. Keep on the lookout for interesting things happening.

Call for Papers Closes September 15th!
We've had some stellar papers submitted for Phreaknic this year. We try to select a wide range of papers, so that we're not spending the entire weekend listening to forensics and vulnerabilites talks. This year we have confirmed that we'll be having a talk on Beer, so that's a plus... There will be some hardware and software hacking, body hacking(NOT MODS), as well as social talks. Per the usual, we'll have some awesome talks on vulnerabilites and forensics too.
If you are intersted in submitting an abstract, please do so immediately! We're getting close to the deadline, and we'll be making our final decisions on the 16th of September. The lineup as we have decided so far will be posted in the next few days.

Phreaknic 12 Dates Finally Announced!
April 9, 2008 ---
I'd like to take a moment to say thank you for stopping by to check out the website. Obviously you're wanting to know when the conference starts, and to start making your travel arrangements. Right now, we're in a holding pattern waiting for the NFL schedule to be released. You see, being in a town with an NFL team means that just about every other weekend is a living hell trying to get downtown. We've always waited until the schedule comes out, then negotiated a weekend with the hotel. It's much easier than fight over hotel rooms with the footballers, etc.
With that aside, I'd like to say thank you to the attendees of previous years, and the new people that have just found us. We hope to provide you with a good time, good information, and an opportunity to make new friends and see old ones. The process of planning the conference has started, and we're putting together alot of events and talks that we believe will make for an interesting conference. We hope that you feel the same way too.
In the coming weeks, we'll be putting up a forum to discuss ideas, concerns, room and ride sharing, and generally to kibitz. Feel free to post what you like, and we'll try to take into consideration all the ideas and such that come thru... After all, this conference is for you, the community.
Also, we will be posting a call for papers as soon as the conference dates are announced, so if you're in the mood to do a little talkin', feel free to send your abstracts.
Thanks again for stopping by; we look forward to seeing you at the con.
