While singing up for an account here on meta
I used GitHub to login,
Gave a different email address to the one gotten from GH.
Waited 5mins for the activation email (smashing refresh in gmail)
Clicked the button to send another activation email, smashed refresh again for a minute.
Sent an email from my other account on a different domain to the one used here on meta.
Smashed refresh again for another 30seconds.
Came back to here to meta and clicked reset password.
Didn’t have time to click refresh in gmail.
set a password and now i can post, hence this post
