I just looked, and there is only one, and it has to be the most recent as 
when displayed in the clear, I know didn't start using one portion of the 
phrase until about a month ago.

But I've requested Yet Another Password Change Token, or a YAPCT :)

But having to do this everytime is most certainly a PITA.  I'll reset it 
to the same as it was just for grins.  And I'm going to write the date 
and phrase on the wall just to see how long its valid THIS time.

Cheers, Gene
