lrmoore, you must have that info in a file or something.  LOL.  I've seen you post the exact same things in that order before.

You know you could log in even if the server and or entire network had been stolen / blown up. This is because the users name and password is cached on the local machine.

As a matter of fact, I do have a file with all sorts of information that I have compiled over time. Quite easy to cut/paste in when I need it...

Not cheating....   <8-}
