Pluvius, and Panzer:
The following images, as well as the accompanying descriptions, come courtesy
of NickOdemus. Some great stuff here.
The following are pictures from the Hotel Pennsylvania in New York City, as
well as a picture of the HOPE bumper sticker:
- What is this? A telco truck? It appears so, at least that is
what the police officials thought; is this why it was illegally
parked there the whole weekend and never ticketed?
[Randy S. Hacker is on the left, Ixom right]
- This here picture is a feud between Bloodaxe and Outlaw. Erik
was an influence on Outlaw's legal problems.

- Bloodaxe is on the left, Outlaw right.
- It was the nine at 9. Names (left to right):
Garbage Heap, NickOdemus, The Mad Hatter, Ice-9, Fuzion, Erik
Bloodaxe, Virt, Ixom. The ninth? Morgen took the picture. :)
- Hackers in the blarney bar, drinkin and having a good time.
- This picture was taken a few minutes before the bartender
kicked us out (because they were closing). The person who
took this picture was drunk--this was evident because when
he snapped the picture, he flipped the camera up and aimed
all under 1 second. Frankly I'm surprised he got us all in.
[Notice: Look at the neon signs in the right upper middle
see how they are blury?]
- This is the bar we all jammed into and drank.
[Notice: Hackers like to set off car alarms.]
- This room was "the other conference room." No speeches
really went on in here, just basically a gathering. It was
a place where people could hook up their portables to the
reliable internet connection, and chit-chat with others.
A few things got stolen, a few people got interviewed and
a few people even learned a thing or two.

bulletin board that people could write whatever
bb2.jpg -- graffiti came to
mind. It was actually quite funny reading some
bb3.jpg -- of it, too bad
it is hard to read in the picture.
- [L to R] Chesire Cat, The Emmanuel Goldstein, and SN at their
humorous speech at getting valuable information. :)
- This woman was a peace of art. Nowhere will you find
such a woooo-man. The reason why no man is crawling on
her in this picture was because someone allegedly
jabbed her with a pen, and she went ballistic. She
also eats leftover McDonalds in the conference room,
and drinks used coffee from unknown origins.

- After Icom was done with his marvelous speech on pagers, he
was entertaining questions. Ixom, quite energetic, waved his
hand. Icom called on Ixom. Ixom then apologized to the
audience that this was off-subject, but he wanted to know of
Mr. Icom's involvement with Ken Citerrela [Ass. DA of
Westchester County]. Mr. Icom in his hastely response
repeatedly tried for an offensive position. People
then told Ixom to go up to the microphone and start talking.
Ixom repeated the original question numerous times, but Mr.
Icom played the good politician. And he still repeated for
offensive control. Icom asked, "What is your involvement in
Operation Marigold? Where is PCNet getting it's funding?"
All quite entertaining for those who know, and those who don't.
- Ixom - "I even got a permission slip from my probation
officer." 1 min later-- Excuse me, but we are going to have
to ask you to leave, and there is no hope for you to return.
Ixom didn't get booted, and an answer was never given by
the all too-sly Mr. Icom.
- This is where all the speeches occured.
