Our high school's library computer (in the 90s) logged failed log-ins in a file readable by anyone. Just the username, not the attempted passwords, but the return key on that computer was not reliable and a very common error was that the return key didn't register leading to "usernamepassword" being in the log.





I watched a variation on this in a lecture hall, when the head of school attempted to log into the system and types UsernamePassword into the username field with a big projector running.
