Today we had a behind-the-scenes panic because it appeared that somebody had hacked the administrative center. Fortunately, this turned out to be innocent and the matter is now closed. However, if anybody has any questions or needs something done. PLEASE ask the admin staff. Going around hitting keys at random or trying to find a solution on one's own is a bad thing.

Wasn't that 'Hey Yuri, bet you can't override all the safeties'?

That's something I often face when our cats go into 'buffalo' mode and thunder across desk by the numbers...

UNDO can only do so much, especially when there are multiple key-strokes !!

Fortunately, it hasn't happened when I'm setting or changing a password, though I've often had mere fractions of a second to shove keyboard under shelf as the front edge of that tawny stampede arrives...
