    If I were a smart man

    I wouldn't leave the computer in the hotel lobby logged in to my name....

    So I just wanted to say

    Airheads should be banded.

    So your that guy...one of those user types that does not have your machine lock after a few minutes of inactivity (that or you need someone to setup better policies to protect you from yourself)

    Don't take offense...I am one of those guys that is suppose to set those policies to lock your computer and I did the same thing with my laptop in a local bar type place that has an acccess point..ONCE . I blamed the drinking though. And yes, it is sad I know that I was also playing on the computer instead of trying to pick up women at the bar...sigh

    Cntrl-Alt-Delete and press return. Locked. I am so ingrained by having to do this at work, I even do it at home.

    Smart man?

    Post #1 and post #7, while having similar signatures have VERY different authors.

    One is a computer idiot and the other knows how to take advantage of computer idiots in hotel lobbies.

    Michael did all he should have

    I have to admit to being the one who posted message number one. I tried my best to ensure it was obviously not Michael. I logged on hours after Michael had been on line.

    Sue teased him about a posting in his name. Michael fretted for hours over this, well maybe not too bad. He was convinced it was either Sue or the Ritlin boy. He raced to the computer when we got back to the hotel. I was glad he found it mildly humorus.

    He called me over to show me the posting he was making, maybe he did suspect me and was only blowing smoke. Well, I didn't want him to loose sleep, so I admitted to being the one.

    Twas fun, and yes, maybe Michael should never use on-line banking. Frankly, he did what he should have, logged out, closed the browser and it still came up logged in.

    Thanks for being a good sport Michael

    So what's with 'banded?' Is that an inside joke?

    He could have asked a moderator to pull the post.... but it is too late for that now

    Smart guy?

    As a computer idiot, who would think to ask a moderator to pull a post? Especially when not one, but TWO moderators were also in the vicinity of the lobby....probably laughing at the computer idiot.

    Bouncin Bob is correct.....no on line banking in my future.
