Most of us know our emails or handles. Having to remember something like bce3d42aac3fd7ec32a4d0ca30bc5b2a every time I get a new client at my work that approves my making use of their spare cpu cycles during off-hours is not going to be fun. I suppose I can burry it on a website someplace w/ an easy to remember URL, but that's more typing than carrying the ID on paper. I currently run seti1 on approximately 50 computers, half I own, the other half are scattered all over town and I continually get more (started 2004 with about 20 total).

I know what you mean.

What I ended up doing was using a USB pen drive to store my account ID, the project url, along with the BOINC program.

Yes, saving the URL and account ID as a text file makes it easy to copy and paste. USB drives and smart cards are ideal for this.

I think I recall from the Beta Test that there was some discussion on this. It is possible that an alternative log-in such as a user set password may eventually be available. First things first though, such as ensuring that all participants have work.

I like the idea of the USB pen drive, thanks for the suggestion. Wonder why I hadn't thought of that?
