Manager vs Administrator

It was at the carpark I realised I'd missed the collection window completely and forgot to collect my food 🤦🏼‍♂️, I mean what are the odds of that exceptional condition happening? Someone pays for food at a drive-thru and doesn't collect?!?

Via the Retro community I learned of the GreaseWeazle, and at a fundamental level it works by recording the magnetic fluctuations on the disk surface and therefore doesn't rely on a specific disk interface to decode those signals.

It didn't take long before I developed a number of automated tools for cracking back in the day.

D-Day 2020

It's 2020 and we're in lockdown akin to something from 1665 and the Bubonic Plague. Now restrictions are easing, what experience are you to expect from your Dentist?
