Nuclear Taco

This year Codebits had, once again, Nuclear Tacos.
Nuclear Tacos are super hot super spicy to the point of insanity tacos.
So I did what any decent human being would do and I volunteered to be the guinea pig of altLab hackerspace Nuclear Taco Helmet.

Talk about sweat and tears...

Kudos to altLab. Hack on!

Lego Mindstorm NXT printer

So, me and the guys at our Hackerspace got our hands into a Lego Mindstorm NXT. Actually, I admit, I bought it some months ago. Seriously, I never imagined I could be > 30 years old and still played with Legos...
Anyway, we flashed it with LeJOS real quickly before anything else. "Wait, what?"
For those who are not familiar with LeJOS, leJOS NXJ offers the following:
  • Object oriented language (Java)
  • Preemptive threads (tasks)
  • Arrays, including multi-dimensional
  • Recursion
  • Synchronization
  • Exceptions
  • Java types including float, long, and String
  • Most of the java.lang, java.util and java.io classes
  • A Well-documented Robotics API
Although not essential for our goal, it was fun to fell that warm fuzzy feeling when you're not sure if you just bricked your appliance again.

Well, these were the results:


Cool eh? I like.

Hackito Ergo Sum 2011


Last weekend I was in Paris, taking part of one of the most awesome security conferences worldwide.Talk about skill...

Three intense days full of technical talks, a wargame by Steven from OverTheWire with a really cool story behind. I was lucky to stay at deadbytes house and meet really skilled hackers from Europe. My sincere thanks to deadbyte, for letting so many people into his house and making  sure everybody was confortable, showing us the finest french cousine and hospitality.
I also got to stay at LeLoop, one of the most fantastic Hackerspaces i've been to. Five squared km occupied building, full of people from every spectrum of society.

HES 2011 rocked! And our team won the wargame, which was pretty cool.

Next year, I'm going. I am.
