.: PhreakNIC X - October
20-22, 2006, Nashville, TN
PhreakNIC is an annual
convention held in Nashville, TN. Originally started as a "hacker
convention," it has since grown to include all things of interest to
the technology minded individual, such as sci-fi/fantasy, gaming, anime
and other areas of tech culture. PhreakNIC is organized by the Nashville 2600
Organization and the Nashville
Linux Users Group. There are technical presentations,
cultural exhibits and panels, as well as plenty of socializing. It's great to
be able to attend, but for those who can't, we put up videos from past years to share with
the rest of the world.
.: T-Shirt Re-order
Our T-shirt reprint process has ended and we've sent the order to the printer. We should hopefully have
the T-shirts ready to ship by the middle of December. Thanks to everybody who ordered a T-shirt or
hoodie. T-shirts left over from PhreakNIC 7, 8, 9, and 10 are still available on our
order site. Sorry,
existing sizes only - we will not be doing another reprint.
If you were not at PhreakNIC and haven't seen the designs,
.: Keg Information
For those who aren't local, or don't know about what are called
"Blue Laws" - laws regulating the sales and operations of alcoholic
beverages: Nashville doesn't allow beer sales (by the bottle) on Sundays, so
as such, any beer stores will not be open on Sunday. If you get a keg,
make sure that the store you got it from is open on Sunday. We've done your
homework for you - JJ's Market, which also hosts the local 2600 Meetings each
month, both sells kegs and is open on Sundays. Their phone number is (615)
327-9055 and they are located at 1912 Broadway, Nashville, TN 37203 - that's
about 2-3 miles from the hotel, by the way.
