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.
If I didn't know any better, I'd say this is as evasive answer as can be. So, there's no "one American beer" that everybody agrees is universally liked? Or at least a small list of names that get general approval?
Evasive? Perhaps a poor choice of words on your part.
Now as far as popular beers go, they typical American sucks down swill. (coors, bud, etc.). Now if you add to that list Corona (a Mexican beer), you've covered almost every massive gathering and tribal sports event that I've seen.
But - it's a large country and even for swill, there's regional beers ("old style" in Chicago area, "Lone Star" in Northern Mexico, etc.) - there a a few huge brewers and for all I know, they just repackage the same sh*t to make locals feel important.
Nonetheless, good beer is everywhere to be had and without difficulty. And, fortunately for me, my base favorite is even a bit economical once it when from 23oz bottles to 12oz cans.

I was trying to provoke a reaction.

That was my point. I can't name a single American beer that Americans agree is an "obvious choice". You seem to be in agreement with your Coors/Bud comment. And you're right about Corona...and since it's Mexican to begin with, well, it can be ruled out.
"There's no clear winner" is all I was trying to say. I'm admittedly not much of a beer drinker myself, so I'm nobody's yardstick.
It didn't actually provoke a reaction beyond the reference to that line - all you had to do was ask what most of them drink - but remember, most of the are "users" with respect to computers, too, so there's not much to say about them.
Corona, by the way, is not much better than the cheaper domestic swill - just a fashion statement of some sort.
What's great is that one need no longer (1) rely on imports for beer that taste like beer, and (2) good beer's available just about everywhere (at least here, in NYC suburbs).
From my point of view, I was greatly disappointed when I first tasted beer that it was that rich smooth taste that the aroma promised. Well - now it is.
Think of it like coffee: US standard roasts are way too light. Restaurant versions of the same coffee are a bit darker, but still light. I discovered real coffee a long time ago - fortunately, I don't have gourmet tastes, so I'll drink nearly anything - but I typically buy Latin Roasts (in a Latin oriented supermarket) that are really good, and considered a specialty item in that store, quite inexpensive. In fact, today's breakfast include Cafe Caribe (a super deal at 10oz/$1.50 - should have bought more).
