Strange problem

At some point, I must have logged out without posting an entry; and now, every time I log in, that entry is back (I don't let myself use persistent login, because then someone could discover my password and my computer is not secured). I've done a little looking through the iJournal.app directory and run a 'find . -name iJournal' in ~ (Home) at the console, but I have had no luck so far. I figured maybe it would be stored locally.

Does anyone have any suggestions? Is this written to a file somewhere?

Thanks, guys.

the syntax you want is find . -name "iJournal*", there should be an iJournal.plist in your ~/Library/Preferences

In any case, it doesn't store your password, it stores a MD5 hash of your password.. so they're not going to be able to pull your cleartext password out of it, but they'd still be able to login as you with that information if they were privy to the protocol. That's assuming that you're saving the password with iJournal.

The "entry coming back" is just because the contents of the text fields on the application is stored when you quit, has nothing to do with your login and password, would probably even "come back" if you logged in as someone else. Just clear the fields and quit, and it will show up blank when you start it again.

Thank you
I did know in advance that the password would not be related to the problem I was having; it was just an observation, but thank you very much for the explanation. That's helpful.

Odd that I used to have pretty successful queries on my Linux machine (perhaps different version of find) with my syntax. Will have to remember those all-important quotation marks.

I did exactly that, and it worked like a charm. Thank you very much.

Re: Thank you
Actually the important part is the asterisk, the quotes prevent the shell from interpreting the asterisk, because in this case you want find to process the wildcard. A backslash before the asterisk would've sufficed, sans quotes, but the quotes are more "general purpose", because they prevent the shell from interpreting any number of spaces, asterisks, question marks, ampersands, etc.
