password recovery


The password I'm trying to recover is my own password on Linuxquestions.org! You see, I am logged in here, and remain logged in always, because once I log out - or if I try to log in from another computer - I need to put in the forgotten password. Is there a way around this somewhat silly problem?

Many thanks! I knew that it had to be something pretty simple - and so, infuriating!

Cheers, A
