We could get beyond passwords. But do we want to?

One problem with bioscanning is that unique identifiers can change (still unique but different).

    News as to: ‘How to sink a competitor with Google Maps’

    Has anyone else noticed a slow down on the load time for UD from Firefox? It takes about a minute for it to load for me now where UD use to loaded in a few seconds. I switched to Internet Explorer and the problem disappeared. ,,, The reason I suspect something may be up is that someone, who apparently does not like Intelligent Design, hacked UD a while back so that UD did not appear on the Google search for UD. The problem was fixed and traffic to UD went back up.

    Any feedback would be appreciated.

    Firefox took me to UD in a few seconds, BA. Whatever the issue, apparently it has been resolved.
