Post Can't log in? See here
There's been a few problems with people's accounts these past few days. I'm still looking into the cause of it, but it should be sorted now.
I've updated the board software and fixed the broken captcha thing that was showing up.

If you can't log in, first try clearing your cookies. If that fails, use the forgotten password thing to reset your password. That should clear things up fine - and it never hurts to change your password.

I don't want to make anyone nervous, but there is a possibility these problems have been caused by someone trying to brute force people's passwords. The maximum amount of login attempts was set to three, so the chances of anyone's passwords actually being guessed are very, *very* slim. As I said though: it can never hurt to change your password anyway.

I'm pretty busy these days, but I always respond to any mail I get on tom---at---racerxband---dot---com, and I will try my best to sort out any problems you're having.

Rock on and all that kind of thing.

~Tom

Hmm. Looks like Acid's still having problems:

Thanks man.

Though I tried, it seems the "send password" thing doesn't work for me. Even worse, when I type my username: Acid Wire and my e-mail address which is supposed to be alp666 -at- hotmail.com it is said that the username or email address provided cannot be found... so basically, either my username doesn't even exist, or my email address information has been changed.

Still can't connect!
Cheers, hope stuff will be fixed!


Told him to email you already, Tom.
