Yeah that's me, I have sql server express installed on my local machine so I can test stuff without polluting the development server. So I have not needed it for ages, not trying anything new on a database level recently.
Well now I want to create a test database and I mislaid the blasted sa password and I don't have enough rights on the dammed thing. Apparently the only was is to re install the database Gggrrrr
Never underestimate the power of human stupidity
