Sesame Lock Decoding! 24Hrs To Go! So Tired!
Alright everyone. I have to run to my friend's wedding right now, so I'm going to keep this one short, but let me just say how absurd all of you are. In a good way, a great way. It's remarkable. I honestly didn't think 1000 backers was possible, but here we are, 24 hours to the deadline and every ridiculous goal I've set has been achieved. Absolutely ridiculous.
I don't even know what more I could ask for. A pony? The only thing left would be the last big training reward getting scooped up. It's funny. I feel like I'm just reaching for something to bring me back to reality. "Well, they've already done THIS MUCH, there's no way they could do "THAT MUCH."
I've been given everything and more, but I'm just too excited not to keep pushing. 24 hours, 1 more big push, let's see how ridiculous this can get!
Sesame Lock Decoding
Ok, folks, one last treat before the end. I think this is my best animation to date and I hope it helps you understand how to decode Sesame dial combination locks. You'll find these in some padlocks, a lot of briefcases, bike locks and carabiner locks.
The shim you want for this can be found inside of the little white plastic security tags you'll find on DVD and Video game cases. I find these everywhere, actually. Even some curtains I bought had them stitched in a little pouch. Anyway, cut it open and you'll find a little strip of metal in there. That makes a perfect shim for this attack.
Alright - 24 hours to go! Spread this video around! Let's go, let's go, let's go!
