This was a bit different from the \"attach\" thread that\'s down a little further.

As a side-effect of the server outage today (I suppose, as I don\'t think I cleared browser history), I had to login to get to my account page. The login page only had email/password and did not contain the method to login via account key.

The reason why you had to login again is the URL change from www.cosmologyathome.org to cosmologyathome.org. Different URL, different cookie for storing login information.

Meh... I understand all that, but that\'s not the real nature of my \"wish\". When the cookie is lost or when you\'re doing that for the first time on the web pages, other projects give you both options, email or account key. The cosmology site only offers email/password. Obviously I remembered my password, so that wasn\'t an issue. Just reporting that the \"consistency\" between BOINC projects appears to be missing in this regard...

Logging in with email/password only is the new way of logging in. If you have the option to also log in with an account key, then that\'s the old version and that project has to update. ;-)

If you ever forget your password though, click the tiny blue \"forgot password?\" link and you\'ll get to the new and improved (blurg) page of logging in with your account key.

Oh... so I missed the memo and got this backwards then eh?
