    When I try to login to steam this comes up:

    Login to Steam failed.
    Either account does not exist, or the password was wrong.
    Please check your account name and password or try again.

    And then I try to login to my hotmail to retrieve my verification code, and I find I can't log in to hotmail either, my password is invalid.

    Does this mean I am completely screwed? Please help! I just bought GTA4 [​IMG]

    There's a lost/reset password system for Hotmail if all else fails.

    I assume you would've thought of this but I'll suggest it anyway; if you have MSN installed tied to the Hotmail account, and MSN automatically logs you in, then even if you've forgotten the password you can get into your Hotmail from there. [​IMG]

    No, it's not that. Someone broke into my account and changed the password and I forgot my secret answer to my question. Anyone else have this problem? [​IMG]

    And with the fucking radical guys from steam, I'm almost on my way to a new password!

    Microsoft just sent me an automated message saying to go to an automated support site. I just got most of my contacts back on my new MSN account with the help of Myspace. Thats' right. Myspace.

    In other news, I just switched to Yahoo! Mail.

    Yahoo Mail... A lot of people from Philippines use it. I've been thinking of getting one... But I was like... Nah. Try Gmail. It's pretty good. I am using it for game signups and what ever... My Hotmail is used for personal purposes.

    I've been meaning to do that with Gmail, though I just can't be bothered anymore.
