Going to ICFP and other news

I'm off to ICFP, the International Conference on Functional Programming this week. I'm giving two talks at workshops as I mentioned. Yay! My talks suffer from a severe lack of Greek letters. I'm just a Haskell programmer.
My review of Brute Force: Cracking the Data Encryption Standard got posted to Slashdot on Sept. 8th. And for some perverse reason, it's like 3rd on the list if I Google for the word brute. The link says something about RSS, so maybe it's just because so many RSS aggregatos are watching Slashdot? Doesn't the internet have anything better to do?
I admit that I dragged my team from work to "Salvador Molly's: Pirate Food" for lunch today in honor of the holiday.
