Password Retry Errors

Password Retry Errors

Postby jon » Fri Feb 11, 2011 6:33 pm

I'm hearing that several people have received errors indicating they have entered their password too many times on RadioWest.ca. It happened to me, too, last night.

This is very likely the result of curious folks from foreign countries attempting to login after being thwarted at their attempts to Register on this site.

I know it is annoying, but it is nothing to be worried about. Unless, of course, your password is the same as your "name" on this site.

Feel free to respond to this thread if you have any questions.

I had the same experience last night, jon. After a couple of eye-testing, brain-teasing tests, however, I was able to get back in.

This problem reappeared for me first thing this morning, so it likely also will for others.

Whenever I turn the computer off - I lose the login

I rarely turn off my computer.

Here is a secret though - I have an email in my gmail file that has my code. If I logout and need to get back in - I just look
for that email in gmail and I cut and paste. One of the main benefits of gmail is the ease of finding a previous
bit of information. It is truly my file system.

And you wonder why no one trusts you with personal information. You can't even keep your OWN secrets!
Houston, We're dealing with morons!.
