My current password appears to be too long for the control panel field (64 characters), thus it prevents me from completing the process. I assume I can reset my password through the "Forgot My Password" method but I wish to give a heads up.

1. Download http://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;sa=account (Rightclick, 'save target as') and save it as a .html-file
2. Open the html-File in a text-Editor like Notepad
3. Search for "name="oldpasswrd" size="20" "
4. Replace size="20" with size="64"
5. Save file.
6. Open the file in your Browser
7. Huh
8. Profit.

Untested, but it should do the trick.

This should be fixed in the forum-software though.
