I don't think that's quite what the original poster was looking for,
however it could come in handy for my line of work. I've been stuck
with Windows machines I can't log into a number of times and if the
client won't answer their phone using the SystemRescueCD to reset
their password starts to sound attractive, but it isn't my preferred
option and I have come across some systems where it doesn't seem to
work anyway.

On the day *I* go to work for Microsoft, faint oinking sounds will be
heard from far overhead, the moon will not merely turn blue but
develop polkadots, and hell will freeze over so solid the brimstone
will go superconductive.
