Warning! Basically, anything that you post to the newsgroups can be found by others using the newsgroups search engines, e.g., Deja News. All a person needs to know about you is your e-mail address, or your name, or what newsgroups you frequent, etc. This means that your employer or potential employer can find out about you without you knowing about it. I think that I know what some of you are thinking ... now, she tells us! (~ Smile ~)

Trouble remembering your user names and passwords?

If you use Microsoft's Internet Explorer 4 or 5, you can automatically save you user name and password, Netscape doesn't have this feature (that I know of). Additionally, it is a good idea to save your user names and passwords on 3 x 5 cards in an index card file or on a spiral version of the cards in case your computer crashes, etc. Here are two neat programs, the first one keep passwords, while the second program has a few more features:

PassKeeper for Windows by Brad Greenlee (Free)

Password Keeper for Windows by Gregory Braun (Free to try, if you decide to buy, you'll pay $20 by U.S. Mail or $25 if you order over the telephone or at their Web site. They charge $5 to process the credit card orders.)
