Default Daemonforums password expiring?

This is really weird.

I've just had to reset my password for the second time in just a few weeks because I couldn't log in anymore. I kept getting the "this is #x of 5 failed attempts etc." message when I tried to log in here.

Is there some password expiration scheme going on behind the scenes or am I just a sloppy typer?

I've had the same password here since '08.

Sigh. Guess I'll have to take exact notes which keys I'm typing should it occur again.

Thanks for the replies! At least I know it must be me who is causing the problem.

Don't you hate Just Me(TM) problems? (Typed with sympathy, not nastiness. I may have changed my password once since I've been here, but that would have been years ago.)

The worst is actually when you don't know whether the specific problem you're facing falls into the Just Me(TM) category or not. I think that's what I hate the most, that feeling of uncertainty.
