best i can tell, it all began by throwing a log on a rope overboard and measuring how much rope was let out over x seconds to determine speed:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chip_logthey kept that information in the log book, or words to that effect, which then became a generic term for books of that kind. when you sign up to access something, you would sign in a log book, or "log in". the term stuck for digitally signing in.thank you for making me learn.-frequent-commenter-john
Wonder if calling "0" actually works
I also like how they want their guests to require an access code. Apparently, they're too lazy to require it themselves.
