For anyone still following this, I got a job today! It's not with an ISP, instead it's in-house tech support with a small and educated user base. Off hand, I'd say I can likely close this thread...

The Ultimate and Final story.

Ok, believe it or not, I've been sacked, partly (mostly) because of this thread! I ask you, have I revealed any proprietary information here? Have I even given you folks any clews as to which ISP I...

Sometimes it just doesn't to go to work...

Once in a while, your very own IT people turn around and bite you. I get to work today, try to login to the network, and find that my password has expired. Now, we've never had password aging here...
