comment Cancel automatic login with key combination
I would expect that the typical technique for managing this kind of locked-down kiosk system would be via the network. VNC, RDP, Puppet, whatever. You could probably consider this to be more secure as well, since you could remove access to the USB ports at the hardware or driver level. So even if someone reboots the system and tries to type a keyboard combination, they won't get access to a login screen.

comment My Router's Web interface doesn't have all features i need
I don't know anything about your ISP, but I'm sure they don't want you tampering with their equipment. You should get in touch with them and see if they can provide you with ONLY a DSL modem so you can purchase your own router with whatever features you need. If they require that you use their equipment and won't give you other options, then you're probably out of luck. As for SQL Server--perhaps consider having your new router run a VPN server?

comment My Router's Web interface doesn't have all features i need
Do you own the router, or is it being provided by your ISP? It may well be that you just need to invest in some better equipment, but if may also be the case that your ISP has restrictions on your connection that they don't want you tampering with. In either case, however, exposing SQL Server to the internet is somewhat anti-recommended.

comment How do I reset the login password on a Mac OS X guest OS running in VMware Fusion?
@mdpc That actually was exactly what I was going for with this question--I wanted to figure out how to, say boot into recovery mode or boot from a "DVD" image that would be able to access the VM's virtual disk. But Spiff's answer still does the trick!

Random() isn't magic--this question is about how it works.
