Well......... That may not be as crazy as it sounds...
Ok, actually pasting it is, of course, and Single-Sign On with some identity provider (AD) would be a MUCH better option.
But I've actually worked with a VPN client once where I was able to put my username and password in a file somewhere in My Documents or some such (may also be a public folder such as Program Files, which would be stupid) and the VPN would automatically connect with those credentials if I was logged in.
If I deleted the file I had to type in my username and password every time I tried to connect.
I didn't think it was the safest option, but at least it was easier than manually logging in each day.
For a small app (WinForms, not web) I wrote for an employer some years ago, I had it get the user's Windows Identity and match it to the profiles in the system. And if the user wished, he could set his profile to accept the Identity as proof of authenticity rather than requiring the password.
Logging into the same profile from another Identity would require the password.
Hmmm... does that qualify as two-factor authentication? Authenticate against Active Directory and then against the application?
Only four people ever used the app and I, of course, set my profile to auto-authenticate with my Identity.
If they're using Active Directory, you could use that for authentication. Most of our apps at work are set up that way, even our web ones. Granted, the web ones we have to enter in our information again, but at least it's one less thing to remember for a work related task.
Sounds like an awesome feature! What could possibly go wrong??!!??

Hi Guys, I hope you're doing fantastic. Please share you experience. I know the mileage may vary, but I've been out of the market for too long - 10 years, so have no idea how it's outside these days.
I have enough resources to survive for one year. Max. Do you think that will be enough? Also, can you please share some headhunters in the tri-state area?
Have experience with practically every common language/DBA system and most of the technologies. No web development or WPF though. Quite impressive resume including - from Visa and Mastercard to container vessels. I'm 42 yo and with almost 20 years of working experience + real education (master in CS).
The thing is my company sends me temporally to Germany, and I suffer from severe anxiety and cannot board airplane. Also hate foreign countries. Which in my case renders me useless for my current position(manager).

The number of breweries is astounding. I happen to like Boatswains Double IPA. For an auslander, you'd probably want some sort of brand name - like Sam Adams. There's an series of Fish Head IPA's. There's Stockyard Oatmeal Stout. If on went to a 'beer distributor', one could spend a very long time just trying to read all the labels.
For me - it's a double delight. I've always liked hoppy beer - and for now at least, it's in fashion. Even if the fashion changes they'll still be around. Long ago, for my thesis, I had Carlsburg Elephant and Gosser Stiftsbrau - such exotica is no longer necessary and easily surpasses.
