Every Loadstone user is supposed to have a unique number, the UserID. This 
number is calculated from the e-mail address supplied in 
settings/general/username on the phone. From the Getting Started Manual:

'Finally, Loadstone records contain your user ID under which you are known 
in the PointsShareExchange (more about this later) and a unique record ID. 
These ID-numbers are generated by the program itself and you need not be 
concerned with these numbers. What you do need to know is that your UserID 
is derived from the e-mail address that you supplied in 
Options/Settings/General on the phone. This should be the same e-mail 
address you use to registre an account on the PointShareExchange.'

Of course our web based services do not know your UserID, so that is why 
the PointShareExchange and some tools ask for your e-mail address. The 
webserver then calculates your UserID from this address. It is therefore 
important to provide the same e-mail address to web services as you did on 
the phone.

It is possible that our webserver had a temporary problem with the 
calculation of your UserID and generated an error message. Please try it 
again, I had no problems when I tried it yesterday.
