What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question

  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I recently cleaned my pc of cookies etc. Now I find that I cant log in to Stack Overflow as I have been doing for some months. I had to create an id to be able to post this question but that does not give me access to the account I have been using on Stack Overflow. Is there any way I can get back to my original account?

I dont understand your question. I had a name 'Ron Etherington' and a login but I cant find the password for that name. – user154958 Dec 23 '10 at 23:53
