What Snew -- Password Change/Recovery

We've added a new password change system, so you change your password without logging on to a Siena lab computer. We've set up a web page with instructions about how to change it.

Note the login: you need to enter your e-mail address (with as your username.

But one nice feature is the ability to retrieve a lost password. If you have forgotten your password, then you can go to the website, answer a few questions, and be given the chance to choose a new password. But (and this is a big one) you need to register with the system for this to work.

Registration instructions are on our web page. Basically, you log on (using your e-mail address), answer three questions, and save your answers. Once you have done that, you're set. If you forget your password, you can go to the site and get it back.
