A word on security when using a public internet terminal

Jesus...

I'm using a free internet terminal in the airport and after my last post and after being logged into gmail, I just clicked on the logout button for the pc... Assuming that it would like reset the session and with it log me out of gmail and blogger...

Ah no!!!

I came back to send another email, logged in went to gmail and I was still logged in... Came to blogger and I was still logged in there too...

That was a relatively painless lesson... can't believe I was so stupid...

There was still stuff in the clip board that I had copied...

Mental note, Log out of everything and put garbage in the clip board if you copy...
