Feel guilty about winning an easy bet.

Happen to be talking with an mswindows admin about disaster recovery. He was talking about how it was a challenge to do recovery. I made a bet that I could have network of computers running in no time and not even use a single hard drive. I would need one cdrom though. Of course I was told it could not be done. You can guess what happened next with the wallets.

The All New Proprietary Software vs. FOSS MegaSuperEntry

I only realised what I was doing when I took a few steps back. Anyone passing by would probably think I'm cracking into someone's computer whilst playing some MineCraft.

While I'm here, here are two useful scripts...
