i accidentally disabled my ubuntu profile

view full story

http://askubuntu.com – I was trying to upgrade my 2nd computer's hard drive, and in the process, I un-admin'd and disabled my account. I'm using the guest account right now. I've tried everything that ask ubuntu has to offer (or at least after 5 hours of searching, trying, and failing) i.e., creating a new account (didn't allow me to do it), usermod, passwd, anything involving sudo... I really want to get into my account. Please help me. (HowTos)
