• Lost Passwords

    From Daryl Stout@1:19/33 to KURT WEISKE on Thursday, July 16, 2015 17:51:33

    It's nice being able to have a "lost password" option on the BBS that KW>mails the user a password. So many times I'd lose a password and there'd KW>be no way to reset it without trying to ping the sysop and hope.

    Years ago, when I was still living at home, the BBS was at my parents
    home (their place as well). I moved out before I got married, and my
    wife made it a "Married With Modem" experience. :)

    However, before we got engaged, I came over to her place for a visit,
    and went to logon to my BBS. I hit one of the F-keys, as a logon macro.
    Nothing happened, and then it hit me...

    "You idiot. You aren't at the host console. You don't know your
    password, and can't logon to your own BBS"!! :P

    I wonder how many Sysops have had this happen to them??
