Hamishwillee - A good tip

Thanks Influencer, a useful tip. I've subedited to make it a bit more readable - please confirm you're still happy with what it says!

Joaocardoso - Good article

Security is one of the areas that a lot of developers leaves for last.

Can I suggest that you add the variant with a SALT? Using a SALT is much more secure because it prevents the use of HASH dictionaries to brute force attacks.

Hamishwillee - Joaocardoso - if you don't get a response ....

... try sending a private message (just hover over the username in the Articlemetadata). Influencer is usually pretty responsive, but its easy to miss the update email.

Influencer - Pretty busy...

Hi friends, I was pretty busy during the last few days gluing wallpapers and painting walls. Salt is a useful idea but where do you want to store it? You won't want to ask the user each time.
