Re: an accounts package that contained two sets of books

In the early 90s, I worked with a girl who ran a husband and wife accounts software house in East London.

None of that '2 sets of books' nonsense for them. A simple electromagnet pair, one disguised as a very heavy and secure lid for their floppy storage case, the other housed in a drive bay in the PC, flicked on by a single desktop switch that could be yanked off the desk, pulling the cables with it, and chucked in the bin when the Excise Men came a callin was quite possibly the reason why she never turned up for work one morning.
