When you're done pumping Ida's overactive bladder (and probably a few others' too) out of your work-from-home makeshift do-it-yourself server room in your basement-turned-swimming-pool... 2600.nyc ...misery is an experience best shared (in memes doesn't count).

Y'know that thing where the weather sucks and y'don't wanna go outside?...

...who'd a-thought it'd be such a boon!

Stay home, go online, order in, and drop 0-days this Friday. See 2600.nyc for details.

We tried consulting with the CDC for their latest guidelines but they appear to have left their website unchanged since 2019.

In the absence of up-to-date information from the Cult of the Dead Cow, tomorrow's NYC2600 meeting will be entirely RTFM.

...that is to say "@Rob_T_Firefly's Memo" at 2600.nyc

Hey, it's Gila's and my third wedding anniversary!

Among our celebrations is this neat cue card from official #SNL cue-carder Wally Feresten commemorating our wedding date and location as well as our official portmanteau couple name for shippers. (Image marked sensitive for EC)

We hear NFTs have become very popular. Had we known, we could have cashed in our trademark NFTs and made some serious "cha-ching!"...

...but then they wouldn't be "Nerds Freely Talking" ("Freely" as in "cha-ching!").

Replentish your NFT reserves tomorrow! See 2600.nyc for details.

This year's April Fool RFCs sucked.
Make up for it by hanging around with NYC2600 tomorrow night.

See 2600.nyc for all the juicy details.

If there really were some conspiracy behind these COVID vaccines, then we'd've told you "Let the nanorobots connect you over 5G to our meeting on Microsoft Teams"...
(By the way, don't wear tinfoil hats: it makes targeting you with the Jewish space lasers much easier.)

Snowed in? Hang out! Meet the friendly igloo-weller in your network neighborhood at NYC2600!

See 2600.nyc for further details; use only as directed; consult a doctor if virtual meeting exceeds 3 hours.

Friends! Hackers! All o'youse! Listen to me: we gonna bury 2020 and NEVER reboot it.
Once your hangover is gone, head on over to 2600.nyc/

It's that time again!
[ spins wheel:wheel, lands on "reboot" ]
♩...here's the domain-y!♩


STOP the X=X+1 and forget about the RETURNs with NYC2600 tonight!

What would be more appropriate than to compile the leaked source code of build 2600 while attending tonight's NYC2600 meeting?
(Getting "The Knock" while doing so, I suppose...)

Unlike Nintendo, 2600 has been here for over 35 years, meets every 35 days (roughly), will not delete itself in 35 weeks after purchase, *and* is conveniently convening right now - no release date!

So why not cut the online class and join the cool kids poppin' shells behind the gym?

See 2600.nyc for all your education and entertainment needs!

We interrupt your Hacker Summer Camp-in to remind you that DEFCON was cancelled, so you really don't have a valid excuse to miss out on NYC2600. nyc2600.net/2020/08/04/nyc2600 Come on in and hang out in the (also-cancelled) lobby!

If, in the course of Hacker Events, it becomes necessary for one user to distance the physical presences which have connected them with another, a decent respect to the customs of Hackerkind requires that they should adapt to causes which impel them to the separation.

This, we have done.


There's a germ going around that causes people to lose track of what day it is. It's called chronovirus...

(...and your present interlocutor who is in the habit of identifying by use of the perpendicular pronoun has indeed contracted it.)

Join others who may (or may not) have fallen victim to this and other terrible diseases (such as hackery) as NYC2600 once again goes online!

Details at 2600.nyc and kudos to @Rob_T_Firefly

[ one month later ]
...so I guess we're going to find out how many hackers live in their mother's basement after all.

Slackers can join the co-isolation unit set up by @XioNYC at NYC2600.slack.com or you can Zoom on over to meeting ID 519-563-457 hosted by our very own @Rob_T_Firefly
