You are a master at distilling things down to their essence!

..by the way: john cracked 2 of 13 passwords within a split second: not
very imaginative passwords to be sure- one was the same as the user's
log on ID and the other was the users last name with a 1 tacked on to
the end of it. I will have to scold them severely ..   
It's also inspired me to learn about the deluser command!
