Having to get new password

Mon Mar 03, 2003 6:23 am

Ok, maybe it's just me but today was the second time that I had to get a new password to re-activate my account. Is this a common problem with everyone else or am I just the lucky guy? Just checking...

BJJB, you must be the lucky one! I know of no reason for that to happen. Perhaps you should post a private message to Dennis to see if he can solve your problem.

You don't "clean up your system" by deleting all your cookies do you?

I signed up on Feb 2 ( first day list was available) and haven't had to get a new password yet.

DUH!!! Jim, you hit it right on the nail head. I checked first thing this morning when I was only half awake and it never occured to me that I did that. Thanks for all the help, it even made me feel a bit humbled, lol....

Who knows what is going on with these whacky machines. :?:

The explanation is actually quite simple. You joined some time after 11PM on 2/1, your local (California) time. Your profile is set up for GMT -8 so all times displayed on your computer are GMT - 8. Anybody set up for a time zone east of yours sees your "Joined" date as 2/2. After all, it WAS 2/2 here when you joined.

You can confirm this yourself by temporarily changing your time zone and looking at your entry in the memberlist.

OK, Thanks Jim, I will eat my humble pie now. Your explaination makes very good sense to me now that you spelled it out for me. Goes to show you that we are never to old to learn and you just added another year to my life.
Thanks again, Bronson
