No Starch Press are publishing a book of some of articles from Proof of Concept || Get The F**k Out

    I will be disappointed if this book is not also a zip file and an mp3 player.

      It needs to ship as an ASIC made with Moore’s EDA tools. It’s a CPU with memory chips and a host comms chip. Only people who can integrate it into a PCB can read it.

      1. 9

        Now you’re making me seriously consider doing a hardware edition of POC||GTFO that does different things depending on how you wire it up.

        1. 2

          Oh heck, I didn’t even think about that. Good idea. There’s precedent in old consoles, PC rigs, and the Hack a Day crowd (or makers).

      Glad to hear it! I always enjoy the work of Pastor Laphroaig et. neighborly al.

      For those of you who haven’t read PoC||GTFO, they certainly live up to the name; the articles are very in-depth and information-rich. The PDF files are also polyglottal (although not multilingual) which is fun.

        I’d never heard of this journal it looks incredible. Gotta love Lobste.rs for surfacing stuff like this.

      2. 4

        Shipping: $23.95

        Sigh. This makes a 114 zł book a 202 one.

          Same for me :|

          If there are enough of us in Europe interested, perhaps we could organize some sort of group buy?

          1. 1

            You could make your own by printing the pdf’s :~)

            1. 6

              They won’t have that Holy Book feel to them ( which could be worth $30 dollars to me, but not $55.)

              1. 1

                From the Samizdat nature of it’s distribution I would believe, nay suggest, nay demand it’s encouraged!

            2. 2

              God, it’s depressing seeing something I wrote in there and realising how little I’ve been able to get done since then :\

              1. 1

                Does anybody know if the ebook will be available without the treebook?

                1. 10


                  Here is the collection of all the published pocorgtfo articles, plus these ones can be written to a boot sector.

                  1. 1

                    Thank you so much!
