Validating Expired Passwords

I restarted Panther this morning, and DT told me that my password was out of date … then it created an email that I then sent off to DT corporate to get a new one.

I can understand why you might want to use an “expiring password” scheme, but since I’ve already restarted three times today, I’m getting a bit annoyed at having to wait while DT politely ignores me for not having a license.

FYI - here is the support URL of a company that has their password validator installed online at their website. The process is still somewhat cumbersome, but at least the new password is provided instantly.

Thanks for the suggestion. We will definitely revise this in one of the next major revision (v1.8 or v2.0).

By the way - If you keep a backup of the file “com.devon-technologies.think.registration.plist” (like the registration feedback alert suggests), then you’ll never need a new code.
