I went to log in this morning and the very first time was told that I had exceeded the number of allowed login attempts and had to copy a confirmation code. Why did this happen?

probably spammers or a password-bot trying to gain access to an account. I've gotten this a few times in the past couple weeks myself. If you have a relatively weak password, consider strengthening it with alpha and numeric characters, avoiding names, dates, words etc that are common or easy to guess.

Here are a couple links on creating stronger passwords:

http://netforbeginners.about.com/od/ant ... ssword.htm

I just searched on the question and picked three. No endorsement or knowledge of any of that advice, although they all seem to have similar approaches.
