SSL is now enabled for all, too. Will update the doc after I eat.

I guess you think you get time off to sleep too? What nerve!  ;-)

John, I hope you got to finish your vacation before all this cut loose.  If I know you, it looks like you won't be taking much time off for a while now!

P.S. Don't forget your family!

Well, my daughter is old enough now to make it clear to me when she
thinks I'm not spending enough time for her, so that helps. ;)

It took me a while to see why I didn't succeed in logging in into the
newsgroups: I was using my CDS username (as stated in the above
mentioned beta instructions) instead of my login name (I didn't even
remember I had a login name)

What do you consider your "user name" vs. your "login name"? That would
help me to clear up the document to avoid further confusion. TIA

When I go to https://members.codegear.com I get a form which says
"Name: Tiedo Kruisselbrink", and top-right it also says "Welcome, Tiedo
Kruisselbrink" (IE automatically logs in for me).

When I log off, and log in again (using my e-mail adress, because I
didn't know I had a login name), I get the same form, and still only a
"Name", not a "login name".

I get the same results with http://dn.codegear.com/delphi: my "Name" is
"Tiedo Kruisselbrink", and no one is telling me I also have a login
name. Unfortunately I can't log in into the newsgroups with that "Name".

Only when I click the option "Edit my account information", I get a
form that starts with "Login name: tiedo".
Only whth this "Login name" I can log in into the newsgroups.

"Login name" is the first value on the login form. That's the value you
should use. We're working on also allowing email.
