Installed the RC5 proxy analyzer which is a very funny tool
for those who can enjoy seeing different machines on
OS’s and architectures calculating RC5 keys.
Did some more updates on the RC5 clients and watched the

Did a lot of Y2K updates at work. And it seems that we’ll be
just right in time. The funny thin is that most of the BIOS and
