Alas, no combination of keys on the overly complex remote fed themselves to tty1. That didn’t surprise me, but ya gotta try, y’know.

Contrary to what you might think, that’s a well-focused image. Apparently, someone, somewhere, aimed a crappy camera at a monitor and devoted one video input to the result.

I wonder what critical infrastructure runs a Linux distro that end-of-lifed in December 2009.

We’ll never know the rest of the story…
