Big thanks to James B, our wonderful tech guru

Post by PowerSwitchJames »

Hi all, long long long time no speak.

Just want to say a massive THANK YOU to James B for getting the lights back on with this necessary system upgrade.

Will be doing a little bit more to spruce this up, but yes once again he saves our skins!

All the best

Retro is good, right? You want more retro? I'm sure we can dig up some more retro somewhere...

Has anyone had problems logging in with their existing password, or had to do a password reset?

The site didn't recognise the pw but all sorted now, thanks. Is the site now in the 20th century? :lol: :lol:

I have now got back on the site but, for some reason, under my old name of kenneal. I'm not bothered about this but an I still listed as an admin with this name?

No, looks like the old account isn't marked as an admin. I'll work on sorting out your "real" account though. I think this means you've just volunteered it as a guinea-pig in my "copy the old password hashes" fix ... :)

I've just sent an email to the "Board Administrator" explaining the problems I'm still having with the kenneal - lagger identity. I doesn't seem to be changing passwords very well.
