Probably been asked a million times, but I have a question

Postby PhantomTa2 » Sat Oct 06, 2007 5:00 pm

Is there any way to keep the admin accounts you get? I just find it frustrating that when I get the admin accounts and I have to fast forward the time because of no jobs being available, I lose all the admin accounts and have to re-hack a load of servers. Any way to do this or not?

No. Not aside from hacking in and getting them again.

After manually trawling through the posts...(the search didn't seem to work right for me)...I noticed a few posts suggesting that just bypassing the monitor, getting the pass but not actually logging in would work, as the system admins would have no reason to change the pass as nobody actually hacked it. Has this been verified or does it not work?

*EDIT* Sorry, forgot my manners, thank you for replying, I appreciate it

There are certainly multiple unobtrusive ways to gain admin access, but in my experience none last indefinitely; after a period of time they'll all eventually be revoked. However, since you can save your bounce path with the latest patches, having a long bounce path is really just as good as multiple admin privileges.

OK, thanks. One more question that's just occured to me, if you wouldn't mind answering another dumb query? After upgrading my gateway and hardware, I had about 70+ emails telling me it was ready and it's been installed, yadda, yadda, yadda. Is there no way to close all the emails without doing it manually? I'm getting a blister on my finger clicking open and delete all the time :wink:

Yeah, it is a little irritating, but unfortunately the answer is again no. Perhaps something for a future patch.

It really works for me, at least for a month.
