Glad to have EvC back on line!

Never knew how often my time on the web starts with a peek at EvC till now.

Any chance of setting the dogs on the hackers?

Whew finally back
I evidently didnt record my new password properly last week. Then the password retrieve function wasn't working for me. I see Percy got that fixed and I am back. I was starting to break into a cold sweat every day.

This is clearly all the fault of Modulous.

Passwords
I changed passwords on July 6, in case they were compromised.

I changed again on July 7, after the password encryption update was announced.

In order to login, I had to use the July 6 password. I have since changed that again to the July 7 version. I hope that is secure, or should I change again?

Re: Passwords
No need to change passwords again. My last backup was at the end of the day on the 6th, and anything done after that was lost. All passwords created on or after the 6th were encrypted and secure.

Re: Problem
Just my winning personality, I guess.

I guess I can join Mod as personally being implicated in actions that ultimately destroyed EvC Forum!

Re: Passwords
I was just forced off. It seems that the password has changed back to the Jul 6 value, instead of the value I changed it to earlier today.

The password switching back seems to complicate things.

Re: Passwords
I'm afraid that while trying to fix something else that I have reset your password to July 6th again. I'm very sorry.

Everyone else: If you changed your password today, it just got reset to its state as of July 6th. Apologize for the inconvenience.

As always if you're locked out, click on "Recover Your Password" on the login page and it will send you a fresh password.

Re: We're Back!
Thank you,

The withdrawal symptoms were getting severe, with this strange personality switch to someone who did more stuff outdoors (shudder) ...

... actually it gave me time to catch up on a few things.

Enjoy.

We're Back Again
Hello everyone, apologies for yet another outage. It became apparent that some additional security measures were necessary.

I made the changes very quickly. Bugs are not only possible but likely. Please report bugs to this thread or any convenient thread where bugs are often reported.

Welcome back, everyone!
