The Big List Of Computer Security Conferences

I'm trying to plan out my schedule for the next few months. Some of you may find this a useful reference. It'd be really neat if someone were to enter all this info into a public Google Calender or something (like ConThingy, but that looks a little bit broken at the moment).

Table Saw

Is there anyone near Mountain View, CA with a Table Saw that I could use? I don't want to have to buy one just to cut a few two-by-fours; Nor sign up for a communal workspace; Nor rent one for a day. Basically I want to make some wood smaller, and I don't want to spend money to do so.

Belated update

I've been meaning to write something here for a while, but you know, life keeps on happening. I was going to announce that I'm going to Sweden, but now I've left Sweden. I was there speaking at Sec-T, got interviewed by the press, and was randomly invited to a rave out in the middle of the woods — but still within public transit access, since this is Sweden after all. (It was basically just like the renegade parties in the bay area if you were wondering.) So, then I took a train from Stockholm to Malmö and crashed with my old friend atavist. We took the bus to Copenhagen (yes, over the sea) and I hopped onto a night train to Leuven, by way of Köln and Liège-Guillemins. On this trip, I've encountered quite a few people who didn't speak English. Switching rapidly between English, Swedish, German, French, and Dutch/Flemish has got me so that I'm totally saying the wrong words whenever I try to speak to someone. (I mean like mixing words and syntax from three languages in the same sentence.)

Friday I presented a seminar at COSIC, and spent most of the day there talking to people. (More news later…) And Saturday I got my breakfast, and lunch at the farmer's market here in Leuven. Then explored the city for a while. (The Fonske statue is missing from the Fochplein!) And I'm about to head to Brussels tomorrow to catch a flight back to Arlanda via Riga - to catch my return flight to the US. I'll be wandering around in the streets of Brussels tomorrow afternoon — it's a no-car-day tomorrow. (Speaking of which, I have not been inside a car since I left California.)

Oh, and I'm also going to be speaking at SecTor in Toronto next month.
