Re: *Hisses & wards against Evil*
Would not suprise me in the least. Had a Legend 486dx33 come into the shop for diagnostics. The top of the cpu had been sanded. Held at the right angle to the light and you could see the 25Mhz markings.

Remember those notebook docks where you slid open a door on the back of the notebook, put it on a couple of locating pins and throw a lever to push it into the 50-billion pin connector? I had to inform a user that it worked better if you opened the sliding door first. Although, to give her credit, she almost made it through the plastic.

I've still got a Toshiba T200 running Windows for Pen Computing 3.1, from about 10 years before that. Battery even still holds a charge. Back in the day, I had it up and running with a Raytheon Aviator wireless card and Mosaic 2.0.0b4.
"It is also critical to understand that this remote connection support model was never used, nor was it ever possible to be used, on any printer, as printers do not contain the required operating system or remote connection software necessary to enable a remote connection," the vendor tells Wyden.
"To be clear, ES&S never installed remote connection software on any printer it has ever delivered to a customer, nor has it ever been possible to do so- either before or after the creation of the EAC."
Now the device that manages, configures, and controls the printer....
Ok, yesterday trying to do some SSL certificate management.
The unamed SSL issuer sends me a link and a username/temp password for their portal
Go to the link, login with the username and temp password, get prompted for old/new/new password.
Type those in, get a 'your session has been terminated, login again'.
Try to login with username/new password. 'invalid'
Try again to login with username/new password. 'invalid'
Maybe I used different capitalization? 'account locked out for 15 minutes'
15 minutes later. Maybe the new password didn't take? username/oldpassword, 'you must change your password now'.
enter old/new/new password. 'your session has expired'
I'm not falling for it this time, login with username/old password.
'you must change your password now'.
enter _really quickly_ old/new/new password.
'you must now set up 3 security questions'
go through that, 'your session has expired'
login again with new password. 'you must now set up 3 security questions'
run through the 3 security questions as quickly as possible. 'you must now give a phone number for 2 factor authentication'
give it my cell number. 'please enter the recieved pin'
Type in the pin. 'your session has expired'
Some joker set the session timeout to about 30 seconds.
"ZTE made false statements to the US government when they were originally caught and put on the Entity List, made false statements during the reprieve it was given, and made false statements again during its probation," said US Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross.
Who do they think they are, banking executives?
"... leaked documents known as the Paradise Papers showed that Ross had failed to clearly disclose financial ties to Russian interests in his confirmation hearings."
