gaz, I was about to post on the new forum and bring your plight to the attention of Mike. However, it seems I've been logged out since I last posted there a couple of days ago and can't log back in. I've tried every password I can think of that I would have used and am getting the same error message as you.
There was another thread recently in the off topic forum and Mike suggested emailing him with any issues. I'll email him now for us both. Still don't know if Captain Bubble succeeded getting in.
