Since you gave no information to go on I had to use the IP you posted with and a couple possibilities on usernames is satdav and smclemon without going to vague in wildcard on IP.

What is the email address you used to register. Please post it here like this:
username @ mailserver.ext

Once a mod finds the account, we can send an activation email to that email address for you to use to reset the password and log in. Then, we will edit the post containing the email address and remove the address.

Sorry Guys,

<snip>

I was initially unsure if I WAS able to post with no user name . . .

I got stuck in the loop of "mail address already in use" - so it prevented me from registering AGAIN (IYSWIM)

Having posted, I noticed that the <edit option> was missing so I could not add more . . .

THANK YOU for helping . . .

The username associated with that email address is parametric. I did a forced reactivation on the account, so you should receive an email (check your junk folders!) that will allow you to activate the account and set a password.

I have removed the email address from your previous post.
