I spun up a new droplet. Received e password via email. Used DO Console.Tried dozens of times to enter password but the procedure timed out before I could. Succeeded once but procedure asked then asked me to: "Change password immediately! Asked for old password but timed out even before I entered a single character!

  • Same problem. This is ridiculous.

    I need to get into an old droplet that I don't have my ssh key for so need to use the console with a root password that was reset. I can't type in the damn autogen password fast enough and paste doesn't work. Good grief.
