You may have experienced difficulty trying to log into RTH this morning. That's my fault: I somehow managed to delete everyone's login credentials from our database during some housekeeping.
Thanks to the intrepid folks at Webfaction, the company hosting the RTH website, I was able to restore the user credentials from yesterday's database backup, and no data was lost.
I noticed that a few people submitted password resets this morning. Please note that your password has been reset back to whatever it was before today.
Also, remember that we never store passwords as plain text. The reason for this morning's ill-fated housekeeping was to remove the old encrypted passwords from our users table after we recently added a new, stronger encryption layer.
I am sorry about the inconvenience! I shouldn't be allowed near a database before my second cup of coffee.
If you're still experiencing any trouble, please let me know.
