Don't hard code well-known user names!

Jason Bower has a great post that points out why you do not want to hard code the well known accounts like NETWORK SERVICE (he found this in an oops in a .NET QuickStart sample!).

Luckily he also presented the way you would fix it, using built-in features in the .NET Framework!

Ovidiu and AC and John and Fred and . (yes, the name was a period!) -- I will need you to-post you comments. The server was being migrated last night when your posts came in, so they are lost now.

Sorry about that. :-(
