Subject: Re: SETinit for 612
I think you will discover that every single byte contained in the
setinit file (proc) is important. That includes the company name.
Every single (visible) byte in the file (proc) is included in that
algorithm that builds/decodes/transforms the security link between
the site id and passwords. True, the 'software' doesn't care less
what the company name is, but the company name can not change,
without generating new passwords. So, if you 'steal' a setinit,
you can not change the company name (easily).
