The first day of a weeks vacation, my nook reset itself to the point of wanting me to register my nook. This has happen repeatedly in the past but I had access to both internet and my username/password. I resigned myself to not reading my nook books.
Upon return from vacation I reregistered my nook.
A few days later I stopped by a B&N Nook booth in a Barnes and Noble Store to see when it happens again on vacation what my solutions were.
Explained what had happened. Was told that my Nook was very old and I should replace it. (I was given it 15 months ago); this problem would have been easily rectified if I had gotten the 2 year warranty(too late to do that); and even if I could have gotten to a B&N store they and/or tech support could not help because I did not have my account and password with me) Unfortunately, I do not have one username and password for all accounts.)
In other words, there is no solution to my Nook problem unless I am at home.
Not a good solution for traveling with the Nook.

Your Nook should not have reset itself, but here's an easy work-around:
1. Write your account info on a piece of paper and put it in your wallet.
2. Check out this website with MANY sources of free Wi-Fi: http://www.wififreespot.com/

Or, if you have a smart-phone...
With all the accounts and passwords, I finally got a password management system. It's an encrypted database with a REALLY strong password (go for something insane like "N88k1776freeed@M"). It's saved me more than once to have all sorts of account information, passwords, and notes like customer service phone numbers ready to be pulled up no matter where I am.
You already had problems that required your username and password so it shouldn't have been a shock that you needed it again. It's just too bad it happened on vacation.
