Hi All,
Name changed to avoid, well In fury I spelt it wrong!
<'rantMode'>Mad | :mad:
Several months ago the firm I work for Decided the best way to prevent theft of PC assets in the office was to use Kingston locks. So I have come up with three ways to defeat them so far 5 if you are allowed to violence (cutting the cable & smacking the lock really hard), all they really do is get in the way. My point is they are okay if you are working on a laptop in a remote site. But at your normal desk in a locked and alarmed building, which if you are going to break in you will have sufficient tools these locks won't be an issue. All these thing do is get in the **** way
WTF | :WTF: <'/rantMode'> Calm thought! and tea
