Where: Houston, Texas [Specific Locations Not Yet Confirmed] When: Friday December 18 through Sunday December 20, 1992 Somebody call hotel security, we're at it again! Xmas/HoHoCon '92, three years and running. HoHoCon '91 turned out to be the largest and most chaotic gathering of any other computer underground conference ever, yet it was also the most organized and well planned. Everything from party ball soccer to interhotel telegrams from Cliff Stoll to elite cYbuR-strippers, and everyone from Bruce Sterling to Erik Bloodaxe & Doc Holiday of Comsec to K0DE WARRI0R himself. It was also the first conference to produce .gifs, a definite new trend. How we got away with it is still a mystery, and how we'll top it, I just don't know. But you can bet we're gonna try! We're looking to get an even larger group of people from the computer underground, computer security, media, and telecommunications world together to discuss a variety of topics. Still no ego trip either, the event will once again be open to the public so that anyone may attend, and everyone is encouraged to participate in the activities. This is actually a pre 'official announcement', so at this point, we don't exactly have all of the conference itself planned. We are still in the midst of arranging times and confirming speakers. We would like to have a number of people speak on a varied assortment of topics. If you would like to speak, please contact us as soon as possible and let us know who you are, who you represent (if anyone), the topic you wish to speak on, a rough estimate of how long you will need, and whether or not you will be needing any audio-visual aids. The main announcement will probably be going out in three weeks, and we will be releasing updates every three to four weeks after that. We would like to have people bring interesting items and videos again this year, so if you have anything you think people would enjoy having the chance to see, please let us know ahead of time, and tell us if you will need any help getting it to the conference. If all else fails, just bring it to the con and give it to us when you arrive. We will also include a list of items and videos that will be present in a future update. We received a nice amount of media support last year in the form of pre-conference announcements and would greatly appreciate the same this year. Besides our updates, you will most likely be able to get HoHoCon details from CuD, Informatik, Mondo 2000, and Phrack Magazine. If you are a journalist and would like to do a story on HoHoCon 92, or know someone who would, contact us with any questions you may have, or feel free to use and reprint any information in this file. If anyone requires any additional information, needs to ask any questions, wants to RSVP, or would like to be added to the mailing list to receive the HoHoCon updates, you may write myself (Drunkfux) or any of the other HoHoCon planning committee members (uh... whoever they may be) at: dfx@nuchat.sccsi.com Or: Fennec Information Systems Attn: HoHo Con 11504 Hughes Rd. Suite 131 Houston, Texas 77089 For those without net access, we'll list a few boards to reach us on in the upcoming announcement, as well as a P.O. Box. Currently, your best bet would be to try any of the cDc systems. Mainly, Demon Roach Underground - (806) 794-4362, Login: THRASH, NUP: Jihad (I think). HoHoCon 92 will be a priceless learning experience for professionals (yeah, right) and gives journalists a chance to gather information and ideas direct from the source. It is also one of the very few times when all the members of the computer underground can come together for a realistic purpose. We urge people not to miss out on an event of this caliber, which doesn't happen very often. If you've ever wanted to meet some of the most famous people from the hacking community, this may be your one and only chance. Don't wait to read about it in all the magazines, and then wish you had attended, make your plans to be there now! Be a part of what we hope to be our largest and greatest conference ever. @-==-@-==-@-==-@-==-@-==-@-==-@-==-@-==-@-==-@-==-@-==-@-==-@-==-@-==-@-==-@ SIXTY-TWO SIGNS OF THE END TIME [Editor's comment: I don't believe in any of this. I published this because it sounded half-way interesting. Take it how you wish. ] Jesus' disciples wanted to know: "What will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?" (Matt. 24:3). Jesus answered their question with not only one sign, but many. People today are asking the same question, and the Bible tells us what we can expect in this day as the coming of the Lord draws near. 1.

Gen. 6:11, 13 "O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the one who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her!

So instead of me explaining it, let's let this file enlighten the less-priviliged.] Anonymous ftp is a facility offered by many machines on the Internet. This permits you to log in with the ftp program with the user name 'anonymous' or the user name 'ftp'. When prompted for a password, type your e-mail address -- it's not necessary, but it's a courtesy for those sites that like to know who is making use of their facility. Be courteous. Most ftp sites do not like people getting files from them during their working hours since they usually have other load on their systems -- avoid 9am-5pm in their time-zone. Also bear in mind that countries are often connected by relatively low-bandwidth links, so please check local archive sites before you connect to some distant country to fetch something. If you think the item you want is popular, ask your local archive site sysadmin, who may be willing to set up a copy on the local archive. Different archive sites have different forms of etiquette -- if you see a README or README.TXT file in the ftp directory, please read it. Once you're connected to the remote site via ftp, you can look around and retrieve files. (Most anonymous ftp sites do not permit people to store files) The ftp program prompts you with ftp> and offers a few commands that are similar to Unix. "cd" changes your directory on the remote machine, "lcd" changes your directory on the local machine, "get" will get a file, etc. See the manual page for ftp (use the command "man ftp") Typically, a directory called 'pub' is where the interesting things are stored. Some sites will have a file with a name like ls-lR, that contains a complete list of the files on that site. Otherwise, you can type ls -lR and get such a listing -- for some sites, this can take a LONG time. This doesn't work on some sites. Usually, files are grouped in composite "archive" files, so you don't have to get many small files separately. The most common Unix archive file format for the Internet is tar, usually indicated by a ".tar" suffix in the file name. tar archives can be unpacked by running the tar command -- you may want to first do a 'tar t' on the file to see what it contains before unpacking it. Occasionally, people use shell archives (with .shar or .sh suffixes) instead. These are Unix Bourne shell scripts, with files encapsulated in them. Be careful when unpacking shell archives since they have to be run through the Bourne shell to unpack them. The simplest way is to use the unshar command, if your system has one installed. Otherwise, you have to delete all the leading text with an editor and then run the rest of the text through "sh" o unpack the archive. Make sure you're in the directory you want the files in before you try unpacking the archive, since there's no good way to list the contents of an archive. Files are often stored compressed -- for Unix, the most common form is the compress program, indicated by a .Z suffix on the file name. Sometimes, people use programs like arc (indicated by a .ARC suffix), zoo (.ZOO), zip (.ZIP) or lharc (.LZH), which are combined archival and compression formats. (There are lots of other archive formats - talk to the systems staff if you encounter them and don't know how to deal with them) Macintosh archives are often in StuffIt format (.SIT). In each case, you need the relevant extraction program. Usually, the archive site will also have a copy of the extraction program for ftp. Finally, there's the "self-extracting" archive format, popular in the PC world -- they look like executable programs (.EXE) and when run, they unpack the files they contain. When retrieving non-text files, you must use binary mode, otherwise the file gets messed up. To do this, use the 'binary' command. (It's safe to set this for text files if the other end is a Unix system, since Unix doesn't differentiate between text and binary file representation. If the site at the other end is non-Unix, you may need to use some other mode -- see the documents for that site and for ftp) An example session follows -- the commands I typed are all underlined with a row of carets (^^^^) and are usually typed at the % or ftp> prompt. % ftp ftp.cs.toronto.edu ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Connected to ftp.cs.toronto.edu. 220 neat.cs FTP server (Version 5.55 Tue Aug 8 22:48:27 EDT 1989) ready.
