    • Dismal failure in the account creation department:

      • It was two (2) accounts of the 37 created.
      • They actually were eventually successfully created.
      • Wondering how many stray copies were left lying around…
      • Strangely, one tried repeatedly on A and then worked on B,
        the other did it in the reverse, failed repeatedly on B and worked on A.
      • I give up… hope it doesn’t happen tomorrow, I guess.
    • Oops – need to update the rename account code to deal with duo.
