    Unhappy Login Issues

    Hello. For the past day or so I have tried to log in using my username and password. I was not successful. Today for no apparent reason I am successful.

    Does anyone know what I might have been doing wrong in the past or what might have been wrong with your web site?

    Thanks for any and all responses

    I'm not aware of any site issues to do with logging in. What happened when you tried to log in?

    Hello..thanks for responding. The login function did not except my username and password. Maybe for some reason it was typed in wrong. Right now I do not seem to have a problem. But before it would not except what I typed in. Then the 'using up your login attempts' dialog box shows up...suggesting that maybe I change my password.
    Thanks for any further responses or suggestions

    All I can think of is maybe you had capslock on, or maybe your browser remembered a login/password from a different site.. It's got to be something local to your machine, or we would have the population howling at us

    Heh, no we wouldn't. They wouldn't be able to log in.

    As a suggestion, the next time you log in, click the Remember Me box next to the Login boxes. This will store the correct Login info for next time.
