Nick, it's endpoint encryption - meaning that the hard disk data is encrypted and unavailable unless the key is supplied. Wish it were so.
 
Hi, I have a legacy PC that has mcafee endpoint encryption installed. I have blown the password attempts and it appears that there is only a challenge/response left that can be used to unlock the PC. The issue is that the company doesn't have anyone left who uses this software. There is no record of this machine in their system. It was probably written off years ago. Too, they packed up in May and migrated technologies and physical locations.

Has anyone else had this oddball problem? There is data on there that I would like to retrieve from the hard disk. Discarding is my last, least favorite option.

Ouch. Sorry I can't be much help other than "ouch"

Although a big proponent of GTD, I don't see a huge disconnect between that discipline and this way of working. I'll be trying to meld the two.
 
Work doesn't have to be a total drag.
Some days, even the best job can be a bit of a drag. If you want to get things done--but still keep your sanity--Jay Shirley's "Must, Should, Want" method can go a long way.

This is quite mesmerizing.
 
Visualization of Server Traffic is Like the Coolest Game of Pong

I have to say ... This is pretty mesmerizing. 

Each little "ball" is a request to the server

On the left: the IP numbers from the users connecting around the world

To the right: The url's being served up

In the center: The "static calls being serviced by our front end

The brightness represents the speed with which the code written by our awesome developers delivers data (aided of course the great hardware)

Had any of the balls gone past to the right, that would have been a serve we couldn't return. Try that, Federer!

"It sounds like science fiction, but a new paper in the journal BioEssays says that bacteria within us — which outnumber our own cells about 100-fold — may very well be affecting both our cravings and moods to get us to eat what they want, and often are driving us toward obesity. 

"The scholars from UC San Francisco, Arizona State University and University of New Mexico concluded that from a review of the recent scientific literature that microbes influence human eating behavior and dietary choices to favor consumption of the particular nutrients they grow best on, rather than simply passively living off whatever nutrients we choose to send their way."

You can rent a dozen of amazon servers (cloud) give them the brute force algorithm and try to break it..that might work if you're willing to put in the necessary efforts..

Old news?  We are doomed to repeat history unless we LEARN from past screw-ups.  Guess we haven't so far!
