Base 64 Converter
PostJanuary 29, 2006 | By admin | Filed in: design, login, WordPress.
I’d been stuck for a few days with a lost password for a WordPress site login. I knew my username but had forgotten the password so I hit the “Lost Password?” button and awaited my email.
It turned up all garbled, a string of characters I didn’t understand.
So initially I ignored it. And then I thought Hey, the email reads…
Mime-Version: 1.0 Content-Type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8 Content-Transfer-Encoding: BASE64 QmV0IHlvdSB0aG91Z2h0IHRoaXMgd2FzIGdvbm5hIGJlIG15IHBhc3N3b3JkIHJpZ2h0Pw==
BIG clue… Base 64. So I hit the search engines for a base 64 solution and found a Base 64 Converter.
I cut & pasted my blurb into the converter and BiNGO! Had my password 🙂
Good, now I can update a site I’ve not updated for nearly a year!
