Any computer you have access to the 'console' or CPU you can logon and see all the files...without passwords.Let's address each level of security:A) BIOS passwords-Remove small battery from Motherboard and wait a few (10 min) for the capacitors to drain (unplug CPU). Then reboot. During reboot or at BIOS Password screen find BIOS make/version (Phoenix/AMI etc) and download a "Flash" BIOS update to USB or floppy.-Use floppy to flash BIOS and bypass, modify BOOT path to add USB-No floppy drive? boot from CD/DVD (ISO image...see instructables)B) Login/Password:Never hack what you can access. Boot from USB/CD-ROM and load your OWN OS from these devices. Login to your OS and "mount" the systems root disc, C: drive or other partitions.Browse all their files....C) Encrypted files (EFS)Easy ! see and backup their private key, run EFSinfo.exe and set your NEW OS to the same Workgroup or Domain as the target. Then browse the files.Any ideas protection or passwords that can block this?D) Linux/UNIX is secure!UNIX & linux systems simply change their Init levels to boot as root recovery (standalone/Admin/Single User = init 1) recovery console allows access to Boot options, load CD/USB OS boot and mount original file systems. Browse or add login to /etc/password and login or telnet/VNC/SSH etc...DoneProtect your console! Lock & Block all USB, CD & DVD access.Use dongle or hardware key!Use NON-OS based encryption and PGP or DES standards!good luck

Any ways to make a motorized Blind?

Any ways to make a motorized Blind? Saw someone on instructable made one, but without instructions. I read somewhere, someone mentioned to go SOMFY SYSTEMS INC and read about motor and cord take-up system that fits into the existing blind headrail. But SOMFY SYSTEMS INC mentioned the specs and not on how to do it. Now i am kind of lost. As a beginner, i am only at this stage. This is what i found.  I need to know what kind of DC motors with what voltage and power, can roll up a blind. Wonder will a 12V DC motor with 30rpm do the trick? Thanks!!!

telescope camera for homemade super low light camera

I want a camera that can shoot in extremely low light without long exposure times. it can be in black and white it would be nice if it did this with a very large lens so they make sensors for telescopes that are very sensitive, take very nice photos, are designedd to be hooked up to a computer and have whatever lens u stick in front of it work. i think we could use an arduino* a really big lens, and a telescope camera to build our own digital cameras with whatever outr special needs may be.

Piezoelectric transducers were used to generate energy but not enough to charge the battery full or even half full.

Attachable wheels for any shoes? Answered

Every day on my way to and from school I have to walk a long way to the bus stop, and i often come too late because i miss the bus. the way is asphalt-only, but there are some small stones on the sidewalk too. I was wondering if I could build a jig attachable to any shoe that had 3 or more wheels on it, so I could skate to the bus stop and not be late. The wheel jig should be able to hold quite some weight because of my backpack and should be able to fit inside it for me to take it to school. I cant take a skateboard or scooter because I don't have any and it's not allowed to chain it to the bus stop and I don't even have a lock or a bike. I have access to the local skateboard shop as well as the hardware store and a Tailor and carpenter too (if leather or string or even wood is needed), and also to the local supermarket. Thanks!!

Any uses for a hand mixer?

I have recently inherited a powerful hand mixer. ex : Making food has never been an interest to me, but I do have interest in the tool's potential. Inside the mixer is a 120V AC current (0.6A @60HZ) motor, along with several gears and the such.  This absolutely reeks of usefulness. I would normally already have half a million ideas for this, but problem is, I'm at an inventor's block. This is where I ask you to come in, I want as many ideas for this as possible, I don't care how ridiculous.  Even if its a car that runs on pigsh*t, I won't mind.  anyway, just food for thought. thanks. ps. if you were one of the the whopping 13 people who viewed my forum topic, yes, this is a repost. I think my reasoning is pretty dang obvious. pps. I'm mad about not being able to use bold font anymore... we had something going...
