Thanks Larry,

This sounds like a decent compromise between the extremes (no 
Protection, the Multiple User work arounds, and high security like 
DiskGuard or others). I don't think that most folks wandering around 
my office would be able to figure out that they would need a reboot 
to defeat Blackwatch. And if they were smart enough to do that, they 
probably are smart enough to defeat any security system--just open 
the box, take the drive, and any of a myriad of tools can pull your 
data off of it (for those times when an intruder may not be an office 
mate--remember Los Alamos?).

This screensaver also sounds excellent for those Macs/monitors that 
don't support Energy Saver mode. I've given up on After Dark and the 
other screensavers out there as being too conflicting with the OS or 
other software.

Nice to see that some Apple software engineers can write some usable 
free apps on the side  ;-)
