We are still getting together the first Friday of every month at Dazbog. We coordinate a dinner before the meeting at some place close in the DC970 Slack Channel. All are welcome, all that is required is interest. Tonight’s focus is on integrated circuits, analog synthesizers, and lock picking.
It’s been a good year for NoCo 2600, and were looking forward to next, I wanted to take some time and share a little Festivus cheer. Gifts in video form. Take care, and see you next year.
NoCo2600 is the only 2600 meeting in the state, and the only meeting for several hundred miles. Come make the pilgrimage, we promise good company. People who come to 2600 meetings or DC970 meetings are invited to our slack, and then privy to the pre-meeting dinner plans.
We are still here and active in the shadows. The only thing in life other than death that is a guarantee is change. Our favorite independent news stand Al’s is going out of business on the 15th. Maybe we can convince another independent book store to carry the 2600 magazine.
See you later…
Happy New Year! We made it to the new year.
Wishing every one the best in the new year.
We got together at Dazbog, and kicked off the month with great discussions on Security, the FCC and Net neutrality. We also got into the current state of politics, and Raspberry PI projects.

This coming weekend is a event called “March for Science”. In an era that plays fast and loose with facts, and has an active agenda to bury evidence, someone needs to stand up for the sciences. Take a look at the link below.
Maybe I’ll see you there!
Turnout has been great at all of the meetings this year. Many new faces. The new format for the meetings has worked out well. There may be a great many IT professionals in the group, but anyone is welcome. We encourage open minds, and the questioning of security and privacy. Get involved!
Don’t forget DC970 will have a Capture the Flag (CTF) event this Thursday night. https://dc970.org/2017/04/ctf-night/
