Following on from my………., well I supose I’ll call it ‘Presentation’ as the dictionary doesn’t have a word I can find for “Monotone rambling with poor technical execution”, hmmmmm
So following on from my presentaion at Begbrook last night, to login to the website,type in your given user name as provided by the webmaster.
The initial password for each member will be set by the Webmaster.
This password will be a strong one but probably not an easy one to remember, you may wish to set a more memorable one. Please ensure it is a strong one, the change password facility will tell you if it is weak, or strong.
If your current password is a simple one please change it as soon as possible.
The best passwords avoid using dictionary words and include numbers and punctuation, but this can make them hard to remember, one technique I use is to take a song or poem that reminds my of the account the password is for and use the first letter of each word, the password (which I dont use) edabndncobdtl comes from the song covered by the dimimutive antipodian Pop Princess, Kylie
Everybody’s doing a brand new dance, now
Come on baby, do the Locomotion
Throw in capitalisation where the song suggest emphasis and perhaps punctuation and you get a pretty strong password that a hacking tool wont get out of a standard list of words;
So don’t think that using LNER1 is hack proof and your membership number certainly isn’t!
The login process is covered in The Webmaster’s help page and comes with screen shots and if you have any trouble email the Webmaster, Quenton at firstname.lastname@example.org or me at email@example.com
And the first time you do a post, or anytime you write a large post, type it up in notepad (insert anyother text editor of your choice) first, then if something goes awry, you wont lose your hard words, and wont have to use word that would make a sailor blush 🙂
There are plenty more topics that can be covered on using the website, so once you login head over to the forum and enter any questions, rants, queries or who knows, praise as a new thread there.
Thanks for reading
