Figaro's Password Manager 2 v0.79

Q: What is a "key file"?
A: A key file is the technical term given to a computer file that is used as an alternative to providing a password. 
   In other words, instead of entering a password to access your password database, the program checks the authenticity
   of a predetermined file of your choosing. The key file could be as simple as a text file that you create, or it could
   be a file that was created by someone else, such as a binary file from an application, a pdf file, etc. One benefit
   of using a key file instead of using a password is that you do not have to remember a password. All you need to do is
   point the FPM2 application to the location of the key file. The key file could reside on a hard drive, a USB flash
   drive, a CD-ROM, etc.

Q: What happens if I forget the master password or if I lose the key file?
A: The only way to access the contents of a FPM2 database is by providing the proper authentication (either the master
   password, or the key file). There is no way to circumvent this security feature. This is actually a good thing.
   The application would be less secure if there was a "back door" coded into the software.

Q: Why does FPM2 not remember my key file location?
A: For security reasons, FPM2 does not save the location of a previously used key file. This provides one more layer
   of security to prevent an intruder from knowing where to look to find the key file, or even knowing that a key file
   is being used instead of a password.

   Thanks Dag Abreu for text corrections and improvements.
