To cut down on the mess involved in all this, I am working to restore 
the e-mail addresses to each nickname ... so if it IS yours, you 
should be able to click Forgot Password and get a confirmation e-mail 
and then get in that way.

If you signed up with a new nickname and want to merge either account 
into the other, WordPress can do this easily.  The idea is to have 
all your forum posts from 2004 to 2009 linked back to your newest 
account and nickname.  If you can bear with me about a week on this, 
I promise it will be worth it as everything is brought into one 
system for good.
