I tried to create an account with an email address and it failed. I
saw the blank page too and it just sat there.
Generally, email is broken on this machine and has been for a long
time because of issues with setting up an SMTP server on that
particular box... but that's a discussion for another day.
At any rate, I was able to create an account without putting in an
email address, and that did work.
For now if you need a password reset, just contact me directly.
When we finish getting the new server going, with a new version of
MediaWiki, we'll revisit this and the other longstanding issues such
as spam supression.
As a very quick hack, I'll just take out the email field of the
account creation form.
