10.2 hides PPP dial-up passwords Internet
In 10.1.5, by typing "ps -axwwwww | grep ppp" in the Terminal, you can see the password of the dial-up account (if you're already connected). I know of no method of hiding this in 10.1.5 ... but in 10.2 (Jaguar), the passwords are now hidden.

Nice to know that they've finally jumped on this one, which has been around since the dawn of X. You might want to resist getting RSI by only typing two w's next time! That is,

ps -axww

is exactly the same as

ps -axwwwww

Cheers,
Paul
