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.

napoleon41,
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-}
