I left with a nice bang though! Last night was the monthly Ruxmonsecurity/hacker talks in Melbourne, and I delivered a talk: "An Organized Talk on Disorder: Defeating Address Randomization to Make the Universe Boring." I must say that it was one of the best talks I have ever delivered. I talked about a technique I discovered to defeat address space layout randomization. Anyways, I have not publicly published anything on this... yet.
I love Melbourne, Ruxmon, and having made some of the best friends, I will miss this/that place. But In three years, I only saw two kangaroos in the wild, no snakes, no drop bears, one big-ass monster spider, and killed a single jar of Vegemite. Good on me mate.
