Phone rang yesterday. I guy I used to work for. Nice bloke, who has the unfortunate tendency to let his business associates run rings around him. After I left his employ, they ran one too many rings around him, and sent his company into administration and my former colleagues unemployed. Shame.
Anyway he said he was trying to get some of his old projects up and running again, and had got hold of some the old NT servers.
And was wondering what the passwords on them were.
Oh jeez. I left this company five years ago, and I wasn’t the main systems admin dude then. I recall the systems dude forgetting a password one time and having to reformat the machine… I get the feeling those NT passwords are pretty secure. (Though maybe he can plug the hard-drives into another machine?)
I had a wild guess at [company name] 01. He said he’d try it. And I took his contact number, promised I’d have a have a think and get back to him if I had any brain-waves.
And I wished him luck. I think he’ll need it.
