That would sorta depends on the login infrastructure. To be fair, the systems I've written were only really designed to handle a couple dozen people, but would allow for expansion. What I did was do all the salting and hashing on the server side (since we forced the use of SSL, the password would never be sent on the wire in the clear, anyway). The password would be hashed twice (the old hash algo and the new one). If the old hash matched the value in the database, the user would be considered authenticated and the password hash field would be updated using the new algorithm. Over time, as users logged in, their passwords would be updated for the new hash.

It's not the most secure solution, but if someone MITM'd us with SSLstrip or something, we would have bigger problems than a password breach. Namely, why someone is MITMing the sales application for a jewelry store. At that point, I had a contingency plan that would lock everyone out and set their password to a random number. Again, this was a small-time application.

I'd say that is really stupid to do. Especially if teaching in a state known to be the most PC of the lot.

I'm not going to link to anything (partly to avoid a flamewar but mostly because I cannot link stuff when I'm on my Vita) but the Washington Post made an article about Ebola-chan (4chan's utterly adorable personification of ebola).

It's like 2005 all over again. Also amusing considering there have been downright lovable plush toys of various lethal microbes including ebola for years and nobody has complained.

We love you Ebola-chan!

Considering what happened to other groups and bands blackballed by the government with the so-called anti-blasphemy law, this comes not as a surprise at all.

Ticking off the Muslims just because of what they practice for centuries is a really bad idea, especially when we're seeing both Islam and Hindus in India being at loggerheads due to opposing beliefs.
