Mods, others - someone trying to hack my account?

I tried to log in this morning to post some really witty, thought provoking stuff but when I attempted to enter my login and password, I got a message saying I had exceeded my number of failed login attempts. I was confused because I knew I typed the correct password and I only submitted it once, not five times like the error message said.

So, it told me I was locked out for 15 minutes. No big deal....

Then, I just received an email from Fly Fisherman forums that said someone tried to login to my account with an incorrect password five times. The email (from a Jeff Simpson) gave me the IP address of the offending party.

A search shows it to be from New York.

****? Any thoughts?

(typed this from my phone, the computer still won't let me in)
