I hope things are going well. I went ahead and manually confirmed your account. Try logging in with your old CNET account now, I'm assuming the account is this one https://cnet.com/profiles/josh+k ?
Let me know if it works now.
Nice to see an old face around.
When I try to log into my account from my new laptop, I get a page telling me to look for a confirmation email -- which never arrives. I had to create a new account to post this question. I've been a member for nearly 20 years. The confirmation isn't going into my spam folder either, so it's possible my employer's spam filter is catching it before it gets to me. If someone can contact me at the email address associated with my new account, I can give you the email address associated with the account I can't access. Thanks in advance.
