After I've read the comment from Loren Filkenstein, I decided to have a look
at the "DragNDrop Names" code from Adam Tow.

It wasn't too hard to modify, so I was able to come with a "DragNDrop
GeekSafe". That means that you now have the ability to drop any specially
formatted text onto GeekSafe and it will create the appropriate entries. For
instance, the text in the Notepad that is generated by GeekSafe when you
choose "Export to Notepad" should be 100% compatible with "DragNDrop

Right now, it's pretty limited in what it can recognized. It uses the
default labels (Server, Account, Package, User ID, Acct #, Serial #,
Password, PIN or Unlock #) in GeekSafe to determine what is any line that
it's parsing. In other word, if you modified any label, then "DragNDrop
GeekSafe" won't be able to determine where that information goes.

In the future, it would be nice to provide a label editor and save those
labels in the system soup. Then, "DragNDrop GeekSafe" would be able to
associate any label with the value associated with it.

Right now, I can't provide a URL to download it, since I'm, again, behind my
company's firewall. However, I'll try later tonight to upload it to my web

In the mean time, if you would like to give it a try, drop me a note
*OFF-LIST*. Be advised that this is a first public beta that I knocked off
in a few hours, so you have been warned!

Oh, last thing, "DragNDrop GeekSafe" is obviously free...
