hmm - isn't the CGI-password transmission kinda secure if you channel it thru SSL? and why not use some of the standard encryption modules to en-/decrypt data before/after writing/reading it to/from the DB? (doesn't help much if you can't secure the server, though!)

[ambrus]: Corion: pre-fork before creating any threads
[ambrus]: it's good practice anyway, even if Linux tolerates forking after creating threads (tolerates, as in, the fork works, but other threads are dead which can lead to interesting deadlocks)
[marto]: could be worse, could be dust
[ambrus]: Corion: if you're forking from perl, then schmorp has a module that helps this prefork magic
