A long time ago (the 90s) at an employer that I was laid off from prior to them going bankrupt, I ran SETI At Home (pre-BOINC) on some IBM SP/2 supercomputers.

Ah, those were the days.

No clue what my password was to that account (though I do know the email address). Is there any way to get access to the account, even though there's no account to accept email anymore? I'd love to see what my old stats were.

That would have been 99 at the earliest, and that would have been a classic account. If you know the email address you used at the time, you can attach it to your current BOINC account. See the link for Classic users on the SETI@Home home page.
