    Hey, what's going on?

    Got an email yesterday saying that someone tried to log in on my account from IP 10.200.5.252 with the incorrect password at least 5 times.

    Now I keep getting this message while trying to log in:

    Wrong username or password. You have used up your failed login quota! Please wait 15 minutes before trying again. Don't forget that the password is case sensitive. Forgotten your password? Click here!
    Waiting 15 minutes gives me the same message.

    Changed my password, and I get the same message. I dispatched an email to admin, but no response. Anyone else having a problem?

    I read somewhere the problem has to do with the forum software thinking everyone has the same IP address and the temp solution was to turn off the 5 log in attempt requirement

    Maybe Argentius Cruise-Balls can give it a try

    Ah I was wondering where Snap found her cabin boy. This explains it.

    Something tells me there's going to be a glut of sock puppets......

    It's a good thing that you didn't ask the forum database to "Open the pod bay doors".

    Seriously, I'm wondering what name I'd use. Maybe my pr0n name: Brandy West 17th St.

    Or probably just "Christine's Evil Twin."
