Finally!

Well, that took some work. Been a long time since I logged into the blog and I had forgotten the password!

I scrounged around on the web and found ways to edit the author fields in the database, but since the password was encrypted that didn't help much.

When at the login screen and I clicked on "Forgot my password" I got this "recovery password" prompt. WTF is this!!?

I finally figured out what they were asking for, and remembered where to find it using shell for the website. Had to edit the email field first because I don't have the old account now, but once that was changed I got the new password just fine. And here I am...

Yay!
