@Greg,

You can thank me for the 1:35th scale Mk 38 Bushmaster.  I contacted the maker and convinced him to offer it and a number of other items in 1:35th scale.  I have two of the Bushmaster models in 1:35th scale plus several others in 1:72nd and 1:144th scale.  Great looking little model and a few fiddly bits.

If you do that you have to put one of those IDF Flamethrowers on it as well. You know you want to.

Received this in an email yesterday:

Hi,

We are currently investigating an incident involving unauthorized access to our systems. The intruders may have accessed some user names, email addresses, and shipping addresses. They did not access any model files. Additionally, the intruders did not access full credit card information because we do not store such information on our systems. We have not observed any actual misuse of your user information.

Although we protect your password with a hash in an effort to prevent malicious attackers from misusing it, to err on the side of caution we suggest that you reset your password at your earliest convenience. You can reset your password by logging into your account, navigating to the account settings page, and following the directions there for changing your password. If you use your Shapeways password for any other site, we recommend resetting the password for those sites as well. We encourage you to use strong passwords and not to reuse your Shapeways password on other sites.

As part of our investigation we are actively coordinating with law enforcement and reviewing and reinforcing our security procedures. If you suspect that someone is attempting to gain access to your account or solicit your personal information, please contact us at service@shapeways.com.

We apologize for the disruption and the extra work this requires from you. We take your security extremely seriously and will do our best to assist you through this process at service@shapeways.com.

Best,

Carl, 

I received the same message.  Tried to log in and went through the change PW/forgot PW process several times but never received a message to my email address to begin recovery of my Shapways account.  Will try again later today and hoping this time it leads to success.

Attempted again today to log in to Shapeways and each time resulted in a fail.  There seems to be no message being sent to my eMail address after going though the hoops.  Shamed Shapeways on Twitter and had a reply in a matter of minutes with a request to contact them via PM through Twitter with my eMail address.  So let us see how long it takes through this alternative path to UnFook things. 

All it took was this simple tweet to get a respoinse:

@shapeways - You are giant bucket of FAIL! This whole log in fiasco is now on day 2 and still unable to get logged in. WTF?

The squeaky wheel gets the lubrication:

I have always logged on with Facebook so when I visited after the email I was advised that the issue did not affect me.

^'one platform to rule them all...' what could possibly go wrong?

So after three days of trying and a public shaming of Shapeways on Twitter my account is unfooked.  Never did receive an eMail to initiate the password reset and it required the person responding on Twitter as the face of Shapeways to fix it by manually changing my password to something temporary and allowing me to access the account and change it again after I officially logged in this morning.  What a Huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuge PITA.
