Can you provide the scripts that you use to transfer (copy) logins from a primary server to a secondary server?

Here’s the script I use to move logins, along with the script I use to resynch login IDs and database user IDs after moving the logins. I did not write either one, but I have made some modifications to both of them for my own purposes. I would give credit to the original authors of these scripts, but I don’t know who they are. This works fine in SQL Server 7.0 and 2000, but I have not tried it with 2005 yet.
