At one point, way back when, I resorted to hunting down the file where mysql stored the (munged) login/pw and replaced it with plain text... or just deleted it. 
Got me in anyway.
Don't ask me where. That was a long time ago and hours of googling and searching.
mysql has (had?) a way to get in for those who forget the pw.
btw, here's how I installed it the first time. Some of it may still apply...
