Lockpicking Floppies!

I don't know why twitter is refusing to insert a card for this one. In any case, It's the @LockPickingLwyr, and it's a floppy-drive-lock.
so I've been meaning to do a video or thread on these sorts of locks myself. I have several, of different designs.
generally they're all designed vaguely like this one: it's a plastic insert that goes into the floppy drive, then it has some bit that rotates with the key to hold itself inside.
and they pretty much universally use super-cheap low-security tubular locks like this. You can probably pick most of them with a ballpoint pen
Although I do take slight issue with the floppy drive used in the video: They use a USB floppy drive, which has a molded wavy front.
That's not the type of drive it's supposed to be used in, as you can see from the box.
If you put it into an internal 3.5" disk drive, it'll get a much tighter fit. This won't help much if at all with the security, but it'll definitely work better.
in any case, yes: they're not really designed for "serious" security.
This is basically just made for things like "we have a computer in the church office, and we're tired of bored kids installing videogames"
(my church's lounge had a little 286 in it which had scorched earth preinstalled on it, so why would we need to install games?)
ANYWAY I love that I have a personal brand such that this kind of video comes out while I'm asleep and I wake up to like 20 mentions about it
that's not sarcasm. I love that so many people across the world saw floppy disks show up on something and their first thought was FOONE MUST KNOW ABOUT THIS

The YouTube algorithm that I helped build in 2011 still recommends the flat earth theory by the *hundreds of millions*. This investigation by @RawStory shows some of the real-life consequences of this badly designed AI.

This spring at SxSW, @SusanWojcicki promised "Wikipedia snippets" on debated videos. But they didn't put them on flat earth videos, and instead @YouTube is promoting merchandising such as "NASA lies - Never Trust a Snake". 2/

Simple and effective way 2 make Money

Idea 1:- Use pivot level like 14800 in case of nifty and sell 14800straddle monthly expiry (365+335) exit if nifty closes on daily basis below S1 or above R1

After closing below S1 if it closes above S1 next day or any day enter the same position again vice versa for R1

Idea2:- Use R1 and S1 corresponding strikes multiple
Incase of R1 15337 take 15300ce
N in case of S1 14221 use 14200pe
Sell both and hold till expiry or exit if nifty closes below S1 or above R1 around closing
If the same bounces above S1 and falls below R1 re-enfer same strikes

Use same criteria for nifty, usdinr and banknifty

(This is must)Use this margin rule for 1lot banknifty pair keep 4Lax margin
For nifty one lot keep 3Lax
For usdinr 100lots keep 4Lax

I bet you if you do this on consistent basis your ROI will be more than 70% on yearly basis.

Couldn't explain easier than this

Criticisms are most welcomed.
