Robin - you're wrong about the 30 seconds rule. The authenticator code is valid for a short period of time after it cycles (and I presume a short period of time before it appears although there's no way to test that). However that isn't a security hole because as soon as a valid code is entered, it then becomes invalid and cannot be used again. For example if I log in and then log out immediately, I need to wait for the authenticator code to cycle before I can log in again.Not that any of this changes the validity of your article. I was just pointing it out.
