Don't look at me. I didn't try 'adjusting' anything.

But I agree with the idea of a 'war room' (so long as there's no fighting in).

Yes, I have sent him a message.


Sorry it's taken me a while to show up here folks, was having password issues. Lots of things were set to 'auto-login' and thus with a change of computer, and forgetting said passwords over time, things were proving "interesting" to regain control.... Rolling Eyes

use the signature to encrypt a clue as to the password. Something like the first letter of each word spells out a number, and the last letter of each word spells a synonym for the rest of the password. the just look for one of your posts and decode the signature.

The main problem I had was that the email address that I had signed up with for some of the websites, it had been 'hacked' and the info was used to gain entry to a more current email address, which also was broken into. So a bunch of password resets followed. Seems the origination of the email hacks was from a forum I was part of about ten years ago, they were hacked a couple of years ago, and their email and password data stolen. This has since been doing the rounds on various lists ever since, and results in my email addresses getting a lot of spam (and multiple attempts to access various other email addresses and services I use) - hence I don't use them often, hence forgotten passwords etc. And NO - my web based email address password was NOT the same as the forum password. However it was unfortunately very insecure due to the "allowed" max number of alphanumeric characters I could use - 16 characters. It used to be slightly longer, but they automatically shortened them for "convenience" of users, and thus my password became easily broken by a dictionary attack as the numbers (a defunct telephone number) were now deleted from my password (more a "pass-phrase" really).

And to make the issue complex, most of these forums and other web services, all want to send the password reset links to the email address I signed up with - you know, the ones I can't access.... Rolling Eyes
