    Cool, thanks for the quick reply. I was worried I'd somehow banjaxed what seemed to be a relatively simple signup process by the fact it wasn't working.

    Do you change your password on just Athens, or on Groupwise and Athens?

    everything. Don't leave anything as its default. If you ever lose your smartcard (or someone else finds your surname, student ID number, and date of birth, they can find your default password, as presuming you haven't changed it, they can get access to all your university accounts and change the password to something you don't know.

    Never really used Athens though...

    Fair enough. Will do as soon as I can get onto it. The Portal seems to be down today anyway. I'm just interested to find out what floor/room I've got.

    I've got into email now, but it's not letting me change the password yet. I'll try it tomorrow again I guess...

    Also, my email is showing as *******@gwmail.nottingham.ac.uk instead of *******@nottingham.ac.uk

    either one works... they're essentially both the same. Out of interest, are the second two letters of your username YA or ZA? (or something completely different...)

    woah alex you loser ... yea i was wondering about whether they would go for za or not since staff are z.

    I dont think you can change your athens password, because its a password for so many databases and stuff. I have never changed min anyway, it just stays as your default.

    Yeah it's YA. And dear god no. I'm expecting to hear that one over the coming weeks. A lot.

    Currently setting up my facebook. There's a hell of a lot of information to put in!

    this is to register for a university username/password and email account, not proper registration. You only have to register for your username once, whereas you have to register for the university at the start of every academic year. Freshers and people changing courses have to register in person, and 2nd yeas and above can do it online from 2006 onwards. (In previous years, everyone had to go and register in the sports centre)
