Figaro's Password Manager 2 v0.90

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.

Q: Why FPM2 version 0.90 opens slowly?
A: This is protection against guessing the main password by brute force. The password you entered is hashed multiple 
   times and this result is used as master key. Old FPM2 use only 8192 iterations, which is currently inadequate and 
   therefore it has been increased to 250000. If you have slow hardware, you can decrease it, but make sure you have 
   a good master password.

   Thanks Dag Abreu for text corrections and improvements.
