connecting", try clicking on "enter forums" or any other link on the site.  you may find that you are logged in.  it has worked for me every time.

something changed with the login process for me a couple of monghts ago... i do even know how to explain it.. it took me a while to figure out how to even get back into the forum.  i am able to but is different than it was for years and not as intuitive.
encountered the same login problem...bizarre !!
i noticed a much slower acknowledgement of my log-in, and followed dr. whack's advice.  turns out i actually was logged in, the screen didn't read that way.
as you guys know this is fixed, but what happened is that some bot was running a fixit script i had on here. a script that was meant to be run once... but i forgot to delete it and i guess the name "fix" is pretty easy to hack!  basically it was doubling the size and creating duplicates of all accounts in the userlog.  the userlog went from like, 10mb to almost a gig and this system can't handle databases that big.  anyway, when i finally got around to fixing it i also made sure that utility script wasn't still on the system so hopefully this won't happen again!
If I'm not back in 24 hours, call the president.
