This ever happen to you ... you register at a site, give yourself a username and password, forget about the site for a while until you find out they've got a coupon you can use, go back, and you've forgotten your username? Forgetting your password isn't a problem, every site will remind you once you give your username, but if you can't remember your username you're screwed. (And, unlike the password you can settle on and use at every site, your username first choice is always already taken or invalid.) Genius-boy (that's me) finally figured out a way around that little prob. Make your username the reminder question for your password! It's so simple, yet so brilliant. I can't believe it took me five years to think of it.
