Technical Details

Sadhound drops a text file in Windows Temp folder and opens it with Notepad. The text looks as follow:

There's no
special reason
for sending
this to you,
except that...
I was feeling
a little lonely,
and when I asked myself
what I seemed to be


missing the most,


the answer


turned out to be




...you.
I Miss You
