Tool makes mincemeat of Windows passwords

Passware has been able to do this for years.

Geeks and Nerds caught on film lacking geeky nerdiness

Not heard of MemTest86 then?

These cretinous 'geeks' make my blood boil. I make it my business to accompany friends and family into places like PCWorld should they require me so they don't get the nonsense, sell-it-quick sales patter that often supercedes thoughtful, technical advice. I've had too many people consult me for advice having been dealt with by no more than over-insentivised sales staff with little to no knowledge about what they're selling.

We need a proper IT cohort that is driven by customer's needs, not it's shareholders, like an IT co-op I suppose. Thoughts welcome.
