    Day one of ShmooCon started with a fire drill. At about 0200 a.m. on Friday, the hotel fire alarms started to go off, creating a chaotic symphony of lights and sound.

    Oddly, none of the hackers in the hotel lobby moved while this was taking place. However, several guests in the hotel did use the elevators to come to the lobby (a serious no-no in the event of a real fire). After about 20 minutes, the fire department showed up and fixed the problem – whatever it was.
