It seems that Upcoming.org is about as dead to me as Dodgeball was. The required Yahoo account migration on Upcoming is working just about as well as the Google account migration did with Dodgeball–actually, slightly worse. 8 months later, I was finally able to sign in to Dodgeball. Maybe I’ll have good news to report about Upcoming in 8 months.’till then, rest assured that I’m going to Ignite Portland, I just can’t actually RSVP.
For some reason I signed up to Upcoming using a really, really old Yahoo account that I had pretty much deprivated (and totally forgot that I still had.) Couple that with some confusion between login name (brienigma) and display name (BrianEnigma) and, well, the problems existed entirely between keyboard and chair. Things were fixed up in less than 24 hours (in stark contrast to Dodgeball that now magically works for me, but I have friends with the same issue I had that still can’t log in.)
Three cheers to Neil and everyone else at Upcoming!
