Then why use it? At any rate, that's not going to happen here (or anywhere I've worked): even if I was willing to do that (which I'm not), none of my managers would have allowed it. I use my passphrase every morning for the private key I use. But then, I log out at *home* every night, and the only living other creatures in my apt are the fish.... Paranoia about black bag jobs? Not for any good reason, but.... mark "and don't have t-bird save my password, either"
