If you mean the logging in to the actual website, www.linuxchix.org, 
every login but the ones for the administrators has been turned off. 
There's no real value in having a login as the only content that's not 
accessible to the general public is the stuff for admins.

If you mean the mailman pages for the mailing lists, on each list you 
subscribe to, there's a separate page for logging in.  If you've 
forgotten your password for one or more of the mailing lists, you can go to:


Click on one of the lists you're subscribed to and at the bottom of the 
page you're taken to you'll find this:

To unsubscribe from "<List Name">, get a password reminder, or change 
your subscription options enter your subscription email address:

Enter your e-mail and press the button. You'll be taken to another page 
where there's yet another button to get sent a password reminder.

If you're subscribed to more than one list, once you get the password 
for one list and are able to log in, you can do a global password change 
to change all your list subscriptions to the same password.

I'm a little confused.  What exactly is saying you're not recognized?

I show your email address as subscribed to announce, grrltalk, newchix 
and techtalk.  You should be able to post a question to techtalk just by 
sending an email to techtalk at linuxchix.org.  There is no interface on 
www.linuxchix.org for posting questions.

If you can give me some more information, I'm happy to try to help you.
