So I did not “complete” my hat until very late Friday when i finally got it to announce its link status on its new set of 14 segment displays. It performed admirably all weekend. Thanks to Paul for safely transporting it to and from Vegas. I must also thank Stephen for his late night help on Wednesday. (tacos are not enough) Without his amazing soldering, i’d still be trying to figure out what i had done wrong. Here are some pictures from that night and the con to follow. . .
I’m back in Vegas for Defcon and it’s going swimmingly. so much so that i might get some actual swimming in.
Thanks to the late night help of Professor Franklin i have improved and redeployed the Defcam!
It was an incredible surprise visit to Comic Con! Exhausting and exhilarating! I finally made it to a Simpsons panel thanks to a very special fan of my own who provided me with a most coveted invite. I saw some incredible costumes, amazing artwork, and talented performers. I bought too many t-shirts and not enough comics and artwork. I went to an awesome panel on building communities in Sci-Fi and it turned into just an insightful talk on all manner of writing topics by some incredible writers (only some of which i have already read). Let’s just say that i have a pile of new books to read now. Until next year!

Finally done with the work part, i am able to explore the con. panels, shopping, and incredible costumes, oh my!
It has changed so much that it was basically an entirely new experience for me. I was learning stuff around every corner and walking miles to see so many incredible animals.
With this last message Rex clearly considers the matter closed. I am offered no explanation or path to resolution. The only explanation is that they need to explain nothing. I am often referred to their terms of service.
The most baffling part is that i am left wondering how this is “for the security of all our users”? i mean, They allow for strangers to create new accounts all the time. i have already created an alternate Google Play account to buy the very software that started this mess. (This time, i have severed these devices ability to communicate with google. Good luck killing the apps now. mahahahaha!)
It seems Google has been tripping all over themselves lately. This latest demonstration of their own massive incompetence is just one more nail in their coffin. They provided zero protection, only huge annoyance to someone who was once a vocal advocate of their products and services. Goodbye Google.
I have been struggling with a Google Play suspension. For some reason, google policy is not to discuss suspensions. period. Not even to resolve them. I have been battling with email and phone support for days, but this last communique was just too good not to share. In this recording, the Google Play support agent admits nothing can be done and suggests i wait a year for the problem to resolve itself. (edited to remove personal details and to shorten length)
