Locked out
« on: December 24, 2016, 11:12:25 »
I am in the rescue phase of a computer near-catastrophe - long story - most of my data is intact (multiple backups) but credentials for many sites including NG have been lost, and I don't remember my other (main) pass and username. Typing in my email address to begin the retrieval  process, I just get a error message. Help!

And a good Christmas and New Year to everyone.

Assistance is sent by e-mail. Hope your issue is solved. If requiring a new password doesn't work, we can set a new one for you.

I take the opportunity to extend on behalf of the NG Team our warmest thanks for the wonderful stay in Scotland earlier this year.

Thanks, Bjørn and Akira, for your concern - I'm back in again in my normal guise. My iMac now seems to be running very well; I've installed all my most used software; I've hooked up and examined all my main data back-up drives. I'm touching wood, but it does look as if the worst is over.

The next challenge is to get my Mac Pro running again via a "Restoration" start-up from a Time Machine clone. I've never done this before.

Good point, David, I must remember that. He certainly used some influence recently over my various bits of silicon.
