i agree. but to clear things up, 'you' is not as in *me*. it is *he* as in

if it were 'i', as in *me*, 'we', as in 'they' - *company*, would not still
be using hosting provider. as there have been several other issues with current

reason that 'they' are with host is that previous admin's head was up bg&c's
butt and chose current host. current admin knows little of linux and i do
question his knowledge of msbsos. but he has been at it for enough years that
he got job over my 'friend/colleague'.

if f/c and i can pull this 'little caper' and gain password, then my f/c will
have a very good shot at becoming new admin and moving local servers over to
linux and get a new remote host that is a linux system host.

i tickle first key on systems. cyoa.

time is on 'our side'. contract with current host is up for renewal at end
of year and there is no desire to 'make waves'. if we can pull local password,
all will be *golden* because f/c noticed indications that departed had an
auto login set.
