NOTE: Place corrected. I need to learn to keep my signings straight.

I'll be doing a book signing on Friday, November 10, from 7:00-9:00pm at the Barnes & Noble in on University Parkway in Orem.  Feel free to stop by and say hello even if you don't want to buy a book.

Episodes 2 & 3 are available for purchase on iTunes.  (Episode 1 is not, although it may still be available for free from iTunes if you can find one of the elusive promo cards with an unused PIN.)

I have all the episodes on Tivo, and with TivoToGo I can burn them to DVD.

I love that movie, particular that one song...

Once I was a man
Sent to outer space,
Past the stratosphere,
Hit by cosmic rays.
Now I am the Thing;
Have I changed a lot?
Some ways clearly so,
Others clearly not.
There are times I am the Thing
I am not sure of what I absolutely know.
Very often find confusion
In conclusion Reed concluded long ago.
I was born on Yancy Street,
Which, as a factoid, is not really worth a dime.
But you'll get a clobbering
Of which I never was more certain that it's time!

[Spoken]Is a clobberment...

Wow, that's quite a tour.  Too bad the order doesn't make the best geographic sense.

In fact, since the word hairdo is often shortened to do, it might be said that he had a "fro do."

Hmm.  Interesting.  I just tested it, and using the stored password as the salt does work, because whatever algorithm is used on the salt produces the salt when used on anything encrypted using the salt.

So I withdraw my objection.

No, that will not work.

The crypt function takes two arguments.  The first is the text you want to encrypt, and the second is a "salt" for the encryption.

Now, the password stored in the database was encrypted using a specific salt.  In order to compare the submitted password with the stored password, you need to encrypt the submitted password using the exact same salt that was used for encrypting the stored password, or else they will not match.

In this code, you're using the encrypted version of the stored password as the salt, rather than whatever salt was originally used to encrypt the stored password.
