Sorry - should not email when frustrated. I did find my username - and at least you have an email contact link. There is one site where I have at least three identities because I lost my username.

Nowdays I guess most people will use some sort of password manager. Should be less of a problem ... until they loose their password database. 

Bring back Kandalf.
