Yes, I am still alive.
It's been ages since I posted anything here on DA. One reason, quite honestly, was that I had forgotten my password. I'd been away for so long that I couldn't remember it, and then when I looked through my papers to find it, I saw that it didn't work!
So, I tried changing to a new password. They send out a message to your e-mail address on record, but my address on record was with my old internet/cable provider, so I could no longer access that account - or, of course, the message from DA.
So, I wrote to ask for help in changing my password, but to do that I had to give all sorts of information which I couldn't remember, either.
I had basically given up and was thinking of just starting a totally new DA page, with everything here frozen and basically lost to me forever.
Then, before abandoning all hope, I looked through my papers once again. I found the password, but it didn't work. I tried capitalizing the first letter. That didn't work. Then I tried one more thing: I looked even more through my papers to see if I had perhaps changed it somewhere along the way. Guess what? I was right. I found another password and - lo and behold - here I am, logged in!
It's good to be back.
