    I was fiddling with Onyx when I accidentally deselected "local users" under one of the parameter panes. Now I can't log back in because my account is hidden. The only option is the Safari-only guest account, the one that doesn't have a file system. Can someone either help me reset the login window options or otherwise log in? I know my username and password, so I just need a little help figuring out how to use them. Thanks!

    In case it helps anyone, I'll post my solution here.

    When you restart, press the down arrow and then option+return at the login screen. This gives you the option of entering a username and password manually.
