I don't exist?
« on: April 22, 2010, 10:57:52 AM »
Just bought a new laptop.  When I try to log in, on the new puter, it says "that username does not exist".  When I click on the "I forgot my password" thingy, I get the same message.  I even copied and pasted my username directly from my profile and got the same message.  I stay logged in on this computer (home desktop) and it logged me right in as usual.  Weird.  Any suggestions?

I figured it out.  When I signed up, it wouldn't allow caps or spaces.  Therefore, I signed up as 'swashbuckling_drunk'. I was later able to make it so my name appears as 'SwashBuckling Drunk'.  I had forgotten about all that until I went poking around in my profile.

Thought that one sounded like a PIBCAK error!   ;D
