Old Faces, New Outlook.

Hi everyone!

I was on this forum years ago as "Relentless." I was in high school at the time. I'm happy to see the forum is alive and well; you all were very engaging. I did a lot of problems here on Excel as I didn't know how to code... lol. I did some maths and computer science at uni but switched to philosophy and religion. Let's just say I am itching for a realm of certainties and not just possibilities, so I want to return to computational maths. I think it would be more useful to society too, frankly. We'll see if these rusty old gears can turn again!

Oh, and I'm sorry to hear about bobbym's passing. He was a one of a kind.

Hi Keep_Relentless  ,

Welcome back.

Your old account is still usable.  I can email you a temporary password if you would rather use the old one.

I don't think I can merge accounts though so it's got to be one or the other.

Hi zetafunc! I remember your wizardry and that you do videos. You are really passionate.

Hi Bob,

Good to see you.

I would use my old account. But the email has to be email removed


If it's email removed I don't know how to access it due to some business about needing an old phone number for verification.

Thanks either way,

K_R

Re: Old Faces, New Outlook.

Hi KR,

As an administrator I can see both emails so I guessed you'd got a logging in issue with the old one. As a precaution against spam I've taken out your addresses from your post.

What I'll do is (1) set up a temporary pw on the old account and modify the email to your more recent one. I'll ask my PA Matilda to email what the pw is so you can try it out. Give me some time to complete the steps.


Bob

Ps hit a slight snag as Matilda's on holiday till Saturday. Please be patient.

Re: Old Faces, New Outlook.

Hi again, Relentless! Still 'Keep_'-ing the old name going, I see. big_smile

Yes, I thought you were you, your username being a good clue; + your use the other day of 'M' for Mathematica, the abbreviation that bobbym and I used frequently in our many conversations...and maybe you did in yours with him too.

We met in several threads about 8 years ago, one being The missing dollar (& the 2 extra dollars). Well, the sad news since then is that my HP 32SII that I based the puzzle on conked out 3 years ago. However, I found an HP 33S (HP 32SII's successor) for only $35, and all's happy again.

Welcome back! smile
