** Those of us older in infosec will remember the Rex from yours and our favourite Computer Fairs - a place to buy cheap and second-hand parts. But gone are the porn star red carpets and brown walls smeared with the sweat of nerds shopping for a bargain. However, despite its shiny new facade, polished marble floors - we know at its heart it has been, and always will be, a place for hackers to meet and mingle.
