can't link new device to existing account
multiple issues encountered. i set up my initial account on an android phone not realizing i would be forced to link any new account from that device. i would rather just be able to claim my account on any device by using the password. typing my long crazy password on the phone is painful.
android ring version is live free or die 20180805. ring-gnome version is 20180803. cyanogenmod 11 (android 4.4.4)
anyways, the first few times i tried to generate the pin, the android client showed "publishing new account information" forever, never showing any pin. finally i got a pin to show, but when i entered it into the gnome client the gnome client just showed a frozen status indicator and never unfroze. i restarted the computer b/c i saw a systemd crash in the log. now when i try to generate the pin the android client tells me there is a network connection issue, but all networking and internet is working fine on all devices on the lan. i'm wondering if all my failed attempts at generating a pin have gotten me temporarily blacklisted by a ring dht proxy/bootstrap server or something? thanks
