Hi everyone,

I'm sure I registered for this site many, many years ago, but my username and password no longer work it appears, and I had a different email address back then! Oh well, I don't think I'd ever posted anyway :)

I've been fascinated with the art of lock picking since I read about it in a certain *ahem* "cookbook" back in the 90's that was downloaded from a newsgroup! I never did get around to creating or buying a set of picks and some wrenches, until this very week!

Super keen to get cracking (pun half-intended :13: )

Welcome to the group mate, keep cracking bad puns and you're going to fit right in here. That "cookbook" was one of the first readily available hacker-inspired lockpicking texts. Hasn't held up terribly well in the long run but it got an absolute shitload of guys interested in the early days...

Best wishes,

Michael.
