Question 1:

A) Users can access the service from any computer, providing the correct user name and password to enter.

B) Users can access the service from any computer, providing the correct user name and password are entered.

Question 2:
Women see new side of strip bars.
(1) What does "see" mean?
(2) Does "strip bar" actually mean "striptease bar" here?

Question 3:


Does straight mean "uninterrupted; consecutive"?

TIA

Using your sentence structure, I'd prefer:

C) Users can access this service from any computer, providing the correct user name and password have been entered.


Left to myself, I'd write:

When the correct user name and password have been entered users are able to access this service from any computer.

I don't know the context but see probably means understand and yeah, strip bar probably means striptease bar.

In this context, yes.

Thanks Craven de Kere.

The context:
http://www.usatoday.com/life/2003-10-27-strip-clubs_x.htm
I have just opened successfully the link just now. You are right about the definition of "strip"and "straight". But it seems like the word "see" should have more accurate meaning.

"See" could mean "understand," like Craven said, but looking at your link, in this case it also means literally see, as the women are going to the strip club to watch the "dancers"...
