  • Maybe we should write a Perl script to sort of “attack” the device with all possible character combinations over serial. Sort of like those dictionary attacks (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dictionary_attack). We can automate this process and check if the device responds to any string of characters - an electronic form of criminal interrogation if you will !!! The poor meter would definitely break and let out its secret!! Could be fun :)
