Re: [Computerbank] too many repeated problems

MORE THANKS to you Shaun..

I'm happy to play the resident dummy and plainly I am in many of these
As has been explained in other non-Computerbank areas, if you have a way
even the dummest can understand then you have THE way.

So, about the following:

Superglue a plastic tag to each computer sent out with their User Name and
Password on it. OK, it defeats its purpose for the user BUT it solves two
of our worries in one go? A small sacrifice to get a free computer ... and
it can be stuck out of site somewhere where you can remind them it is. 

Or just write it on the back?
