Just a heads up your program stored all my passwords (for pidgin) in plain
txt in a file in the .purple directory.
Needless to say I uninstalled and will never use again. Please fix this for
the thousands of other people who don't know to check.
Lines like ( user name: "actual user name")
                ( user password: " actual password!!")
should not be appearing in professional programs unless your writing them
for nefarious purposes. hash/md5 or something for the love of all things
holy.

Good Luck,
-Dave
