A DJ doing his thing on my turntables. Jeff quietly watches traffic fly past him on the network... Tyger works on a linking-loader and chills out to some smooth techno.

Nothin' like oodles of free Cat5 to get Rubi-Con attendees hot n' bothered. A blurry picture of clear sphere manipulation a-la Labyrinth. A scene of the now-packed network room.

The team, "Two Drunk Guys and Dankaye" Yes, NFF is using 3 DECstations as his podium, much to the dismay of the owner who asked, "Why are you using my DECstations as a podium?" Jason Scott helps out team "Two Drunk Guys and Dankaye" after giving some mad help to the Mobsters crew.

The madness that ensued after I won the entire room t-shirts in the final round of Win NFF's T-shirts. It was Jason Scott vs. Everyone Else. Thankfully for me, I won for Everyone Else. Whew. Beat ya' to it! Hrms... a sign that appeared out of nowhere and promptly had promptly tagged to hell. Mmm... team selection for a hacker Jeopardy game using Detroit ghetto slang. Beyotch!

Domo-Kun is all tuckered out after the madness of being booted out of the room because of cops. Yes, it is really 5:30. Poor domo. Tyger consoles the agitated and tired Domo-Kun. My spiffy new Aztek. It helped me bring tons of crap ton and helped me bring tons of crap back.
