  • Rooted. An interesting box that features some good real-life examples. Thanks to @R0b0tGanG for the nudge for user, and @egre55 for a good learning box. One thing I would like to say before my hints is that people's use of "enumerate" her…

  • Nice challenge. I think @m4nu's hints are sufficient for this, but send me a PM if you need more hints.
  • Wow. This box put me through some major challenges. As others have said, a lot of what needs to be done is not a simple case of one or two commands and you're in, you do have to do a lot of prep before getting anywhere in this box. Hat's off to @jkr…

  • So many people have asked me about https access, so here is the site that will give you all you need.

  • OK people, I have responded to over 50 messages in the space of a couple of hours. I am always happy to help, but it is time for me to get some sleep. Feel free to PM me, but know that I probably won't be able to respond for at least 8 hours, possib…
