"Password- invalid format" error on Blogtronix

My good friend Dennis Howlett set me up with a Blogtronix account this morning (thanks Dennis) however I can’t sign in to it!

I followed the instructions in the automatic email I received from the site. I copied and pasted my username and password but I received the error “Invalid username or password”. Odd, I thought so I tried several variations on the username and password, to no avail.

No problem I figured. I will simply click on the “Forgot your Password” link on the page. Sure enough, about 20 minutes later I received an email with a link to reset my password. Excellent.

However, no matter what password, browser or operating system I tried I received the error “Password- invalid format”. Their support pages are pretty bare so I am stumped.

Blogtronix password error

Anyone else receive this error on Blogtronix (and know how to get around it)?

The clueless manifesto!

I didn’t learn a great deal about the app itself but I learned a heck of a lot about what it means to be in a clients shoes looking at new ways of working. By his own admission, Tom:

‘Couldn’t balance a cheque, let alone the books.’

How many clients do we know like that? I found the show to be truly refreshing because Tom asked all the right questions from the client’s perspective.

Who knew my lack of knowledge could be such an advantage?

I can see whole new vistas opening up. There must be hundreds of jobs about which I know absolutely nothing (brain surgery, astrophysics, IT (oops!)).

I could brand it as The Clueless Manifesto! – “Need a guy who knows absolutely nothing, Tom’s yer only man!â€?
