Problem-solving is savage joy, and we are born to it, as Thomas Harris 
has mentioned in the Lecter books. Sit back, grab a cup of tea, and feel 
deeply satisfied with yourself, that man.

Once you've done that you might want to muse on what possessed anyone to 
disable serial ports in the BIOS, since I can't think of a reason. But 
that's for another day.
