Opening HACK42

The Hack42 stand at HitBSecConf2010

The Arnhem Hackerspace HACK42 just got its 200m2 SPACE. We just *had* to go and see for ourselves, and congratulate them.

Images below link to 640×480 versions. Alas, higher resolutions not available (yet), as someone else took the data from the camera and gave me web versions (for now).


Sloterdijk Station gives me the wrong ticket.

No Meteorites so I am 30 minutes too early.

Brunch, wine cups courtesy restaurant.

Never traveled with the ICE before.

Arnhem Central Station ICE.

Odd elevator. Strange sounds.

Takes forever to drop like 4 meters.

Scotty, 4 to beam down!

Ah, some people taking Wilders’ ideas serious.

Black goes with anything. At least anything black.

Good to see we are joining the “hip to be square” wave, albeit with very modest crowd sizes.

We’ll just have to shout louder.

And make the signs more impressive.

Rearrange words into a pleasing order.

Being flippant. I can do sarcastic too if you like?

We didn’t shop in Brussels.

We do it now.

Toy store.

New version of Werewolves available: Full Moon

The model train store displays the predecessor of the ICE we just traveled in.

Meade and Absinth.

Warning: do not combine Absinth with opium. I am not Dr. Watson!

And Mandarin liquer.

The new Hack42 space

Presentation room.

Club Mate! 🙂

Gaming space.

A PDP11! Awesome! And it is in perfect shape. It can run …
Installing Unix v6 (PDP-11) on SIMH, or something like that.

The Most Awesome Space in the

“It was all very well going on about pure logic and how the universe was ruled by logic and the harmony of numbers, but the plain fact of the matter was that the Disc was manifestly traversing in space on the back of a giant turtle and the gods had a habit of going around to atheists’ houses and smashing their windows.” ~Terry Pratchett, The Color of Magic

([msg=30300]see Re: Computer jokes?[/msg])
Wide variety of people.

International crowd.

… not liberals, not Anglo Saxon libertarians, not French style libertarians, not libertair anarchists, not libertarian socialists, not anarcho-capitalists, not minarchists …
Warm welcome. Tour.

  1. … and finaly, Omroep Gelderland’s (the provincial broadcasting corp.) feature on the opening – one of the most positive reporting about hackers I’ve ever seen:

    Check out the bubbling ‘n’ foaming liquid handled by ‘the principal suspect’ posing here as scientist!
