    Paul Ducklin from Sophos was again on the stand, this being his ninth conference. Not bad. We're still looking for someone who has been to all ten of the AusCERT conferences.

  • IBM this year had a magician on its stand. He was pulling $50 notes out of fruit. Was this in any way making up for the company handing out malware in its USB drives last year?
