    I am trying to get a password reset for pogs.theskynet from when I was on there in 2012.org/pogs/. Their reset does not send the email like it suppose to for the reset. Hopefully I will get it resolved soon. Otherwise see you on TN-Grid next week. I missed that you were doing this, but received an email about it a few days ago. Thanks for the work in setting up the competition.

    I am on TN-Grid getting ready for the start of the competition on that site. I see they have badges plus the work units are less than an hour. That is nice.

    Hah, this was a weak attempt from me, 10% of what could be done, but hey, life has complications. I "participated". :P More importantly, the belated email containing the magic word "Movieman" brought me back. "Just when I though I was out, they pull me back in."
    Sometimes a good slap in the face is all you need

    Bios my arss.....
    I can fix this problem with a hardware mod....
