You were still a user, as "barrowboy", all lower case. So you could have gone to the login page and used the "Forgotten your password? Get a new one: Set new password" option (assuming you still had access to that email address ...) but I see you've now created yourself a new user "bramley" so this is probably a bit academic.
Glad to be of service. And it reminds me I've not had a bottle of that for ages either. I must order some.
Allegedly broccoli however I would claim there's nothing fundamentally wrong with it, it's just the way it's cooked. It needs a sauce over it to stop it going cold (see also cauliflower). But this NEVER HAPPENS.
