[Classweb-users] Creating and accessing local notes

We just use the one username and password for everything, I believe, with 
multiple logins. Any notes added in regarding local practice should 
presumably be valid for everybody, and so we prefer that there is only 1 
note file.

On the whole, however, we rarely use this function. Any amendments are only 
added in after general agreement, and we've not experienced any cases of 
reckless misuse.

Best wishes
