Charlie, I learned years ago to keep all my user names and passwords on a password protected Excel spreadsheet so I wouldn't have that problem. That way you only have to remember one password.

You mean you have them written down? If that's the case I do that too. But I still have to enter them.

That's why I suggested writing them down. Yes, you still have to enter them.

I use Password Safe. It's free. I use a very strong password to protect the passwords in Password Safe. I can easily drag (or copy) the user name and the password to wherever. It also has room for notes and the URL.

A political pet peeve not having to do with the upcoming election or the candidates or either party. So don't go there.

The US Navy has requested that an ongoing production of a new class of small attack ships be halted or drastically scaled back. The ships in question have had numerous sea trial failures. Cracked hulls, failed engines that caused them to be out of sea trials for weeks, rusting parts, etc. Sen John McCain stated he doubts those ships could take on more than a few small craft at a time. AP Photo


"Congress Buys the Navy a $400 Million Pork Ship
In the nearly eight years since the first Littoral Combat Ship was delivered to the Navy, it hasn’t won many ardent fans beyond the Navy, its home-state lawmakers or the employees of the two shipbuilders producing dueling models. The ships’ maiden voyages have been marked by cracked hulls, engine failures, unexpected rusting, software snafus, weapons glitches and persistent criticism of how vulnerable they are to an attack".

“The ship is not reliable,” the Pentagon’s operational test and evaluation director said in a report released in January..."

They're getting them anyways, whether they want them or not. Why you ask????

The contractor building these flawed vessels donated millions in campaign contributions to these congressional politicians who are forcing continued construction of them even tho the DOD says they don't want more of them. They're being forced down the Navy's throats by the congressional politicians and lobbyists who need to pay back the ship's building contractor, who donated millions to their campaigns, along with those same congressmen who want to keep the lucrative contract going for their districts. I repeat, the Navy wants the production of these ships drastically scaled back or halted. The ship is a ridiculous failure. Tough luck US Navy, you're getting them whether you want them or not.

Just another example of the power some in the US Congress have to perpetuate lunacy in order to return a favor. Situation normal.

I feel that until money is taken out of politics, this county is sliding down a slippery slope to destruction. The special interests who provide millions to campaigns don't care about what is right. They only care about lining their own Pockets, in my opinion.

So Caslon, we are in agreement.

Caslon, ticks me off too. Chief, I agree.

I won't say more here, 'cause I would just start a whole political rant.

The system is broken for sure. I choose not to encourage those who have broken it.
