IMM

Yesterday I had the 'pleasure' to play with an IMM - one of these dinosaur management processors shipped by IBM. The system was still online so I couldn't do too much. Here is what I could do:

Connect and help:

As I said before: the system was still online. So I could not do much more. No more fun for me...
