Wrote that down. I'll do it next time.

Sorry for being thick. But when it comes to security and cryptography
one must be certain of understanding things. Do you mean that in
relation with KeePass? Because once a keylogger is installed the only
protection I see is detect it and remove it before it starts sending out
data. Or with gnome-keyring?
Anyway, would a onscreen keyboard would help against a keylogger?
