    I did. The only thing is I was such in a hurry I didn't even bother to see what I was writing

    And it was a long pass too...

    the most common one is someone looking over your shoulder
    NEXT most common is walking away and leaving it logged on
    THEN it's the "write it down or I forget it" ones.

    THEN we get to the viruses, so if NONE of the above apply to you then I'd run a virus check.

    Finally, the passwords soterd on the UCP computer coudl be compromised. To do that you'd need to log on as root to the UCP server, whcih is kept in the depths of a protected server farm in the US and THEN you'd need to run a password cracker on the files.

    Sorry, it's going to be one of the first 4 ( hmm, unless a mod is playing games and THAT woudl be naughty )

    Getting a firewall might be a good idea.

    My password wasn't easy as hell

    "the most common one is someone looking over your shoulder"
    I never have any guests, so it could'ne have been that

    "NEXT most common is walking away and leaving it logged on"
    I never operate my msn from anywhere other than home

    "THEN it's the "write it down or I forget it" ones."
    That would definetly be the one. I don't know what's happening to me now but in one day I forgot my gmail pass, my UCP pass(but I remembered it again) and two other forum passes. This has NEVER happened to me before

    I never opened any starange e-mail (well I did, one about drag racing that was accidentally send to me)

    And I already have a firewall

    Any other reasons?

    I don't think two people can be logged in with the same account at the same time, making this conversation impossible.

    Are you sure that he didn't just change his screen name to match yours?
    Thanks for all the fish
