Our old friend, companion, antagonist, driver, and general ally veruus passed away. He fought against Leukemia, which had gone undiagnosed for a few years. Extensive treatment followed, and a bone marrow transplant was scheduled before he succumbed to the condition.

Ben attended many Black Hat and DEF CON conferences and lived between Utah and Florida.

Most of us can hope to be as memorable as he was, for better and worse.

A decade is a long time, let me tell you.  Five years is quite a while.

It’s take about that long places like this, with a dedicated, custom, bespoke CMS, phpBB, and Gallery installation, with a side of QDB and misc other projects like phonese to get all but abandoned for MySpace, then Facebook and Google+ and all manner of other atrocities like Instagram.

At least people still use our Jabber server.

I kinda miss those days.  We need another zZq BBQ.

Day 1

This is quite a day to be changing things, I agree, but on the contrary, it is a day for change.
