What can I say... I agree and did say that they shouldn't be written down. However, Frank mentioned that the password might be written on a scrap of paper somewhere (along with his CC details!) which is obviously an awful idea. So, if you're gonna write 'em down, keep 'em locked up. I know people who keep their passwords on sticky notes on their monitors *sigh* -Ross ____________________________________________________ ross lynch | me at rosslynch.com | +353 (0)87 9683368 ____________________________________________________ Nicht auf dem Teppich, Mann!
