    Linux Counter Renewals!


    HI everyone!
    As Linux Counter user # 487069, I feel it is my duty to inform all other active but forgetful members that it's that time for you to renew your Linux counter issued number, which is supposed to be done by logging into your account once per year to keep it active. Two years ago, my account had expired and I could no longer login to renew my account. So I sent the Linux Counter team an email, with my Counter number, email, and other info.....they renewed my account for me! I was so happy that I got to keep my original number, so don't lose yours!

    I usually get an email from them reminding me to login. But I just did anyway.

    Ok, just logged in to keep my account with them active but really wish we could use our email address as a user ID and use a personalized password rather than the ones they issue themselves. Oh well, at least my original account is still active.

    I thought the same thing about the passwords...I'm sure they have a reason for it though. We used to be able to set our own password.

    Linux User #270181 appreciates your reminder, and will stop speaking in third person eventually. Really, he will.

    Just guessing, but if you didn't hide your registration info there, you might be able to drill down into the registrations they have on file and eventually find your info, or at least enough of it to get your account back. Might take some serious digging effort, though.
