     //  Lists for new, updated, and existing settings.
     list newSettings = new list();
     list updateSettings = new list();

     list validApplicationSettings = new list();
        //  Populate the map based on the above query's results - keyed by the Username (name contains username)               
     if (!existingSettings.isEmpty()){
      for (App_Custom_Settings__c s : existingSettings){

            if (stg.Password__c != null && stg.Password__c  != '' ){
             //  Inserts are easier - as long as the Password was provided, we'll add it
                if (trigger.isInsert)
             //  We'll make sure the old and new Password values don't match and aren't udpated to the "masked" value
                else if (trigger.isUpdate)
