Hi Dave,

First- I'd login manually to change your password.

Second- Regarding POST vs. GET-

Browsers automatically do a "GET" when you type a URL into them...
BUT- Form submission (ie "<form>" tags) can do a POST, among other
things- That is what your contact at the web site was referring to

...And you are going to basically be faking out an HTTP POST in your Curl
command script.
