Hacker Potluck / Open House / Lockpick Challenge

This Saturday, June 15th, 1900 hours is 23b's monthly Hacker Potluck++, now with 25% more less.

Join us for this month's festivities, proclivities, and ensuing hilarities as we congregate once again to Orange County's hot spot for red-team teledildonics (whatever the hell that means).  Summertime quickly approaches, and as some of our beloved team chooses to fly toward more temperate climates, we find ourselves with a measurable drop in hacker populations, which can only be solved by YOU.  Our ecosystem has a niche, and you know what they say, "Species LOVE niches" (or is that Nietzches?).


While the nests may appear empty, along with a measurable drop in faeces levels, this means there are some well-equipped perches, gently-used robots, and many other unholy relics just begging to be manipulated, manufactured, and maimed by eager minds.    Tired of the way that old electronics project has been staring at you?  Bring it by for a mass-intimidation session, threatening your misbehaving Casio keyboards with all sorts of probing and prodding and O-scoping.  After an intense electronic interrogation, should your equipment STILL be mum about its darkest secrets, might I suggest a sacrifice to PURGAT~1.BIN, or a streamlining session with CRICKET.BAT?  Aggressive negotiations are sometimes necessary. 

Truly, we are multifaceted at 23b Shop.  If Smashology 103 isn't your cuppa tea, then perhaps self-guided learning for the much more delicate LOCKPICK CHALLENGE might be up your alley.  You're already a lockpick master, you just need to be in the vicinity of a few other familiars to establish quorum.  Soon, your inner Yeti will make mincemeat of Masterlocks, shim Schlages, and kill Kwik-sets with innate powers you didn't even know existed before now.  Show up early for the practice rounds, stick around for the main event.  Pick better than the others, and your skill will be rewarded with a tantalizing totem, a unique trophy to call your own.   We at 23b are ADA compliant, "NO GEEK LEFT BEHIND", we also recognize a complete absence of skill.  In that event, the booby prize might be "ORIGAMI MASTER", for most picks mutilated while learning.


Come for the nom, stay for the lulz.
