@thrash a machine is retired every week, and a new one is released. They can be seen under the unreleased tab under "Machines", and the box to be retired is the one at the top of the active list afaik.
@Skunkfoot Thanks for the info, I played around with enum4linux yesterday, and i'll definitely give those other tools a look! Thanks!
