That's not a bad idea. I was, admittedly, hoping to avoid that, but it was not out of laziness. I'm trying to develop a model of what makes a "good" user authentication system. Obviously, the foundation of any good system is successfully identifying users, but what differentiates one system from another? I think I'm on my own here, but the quest must go on! ;) Edward Dudlik Becoming Digital www.becomingdigital.com ----- Original Message ----- From: "Manuel Lemos" <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> To: <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> Sent: Tuesday, 10 June, 2003 20:51 Subject: Re: [PHP-DB] Re: Authentication Classes Hello, On 06/10/2003 09:37 PM, Becoming Digital wrote: > Sorry, Manuel, but you must have missed the first paragraph of my post.

There is a rating system in the site that would help you to find the most appreciated, but since it was introduced only in the beginning of the month, there are not yet enough ratings for any to give you accurate values. What you may want to do is to go in the pages of each of the classes that from the descriptions seem to do what you want.
